In the ten months that I have been practicing Mind Body Dancer®, I have noticed a phenomenal transformation in both my yoga and my dance practices. From connecting breath to the movement, to injury prevention and management, this practice has taught me so much about how to use my body and unlock strengths of which I was previously unaware. I am extremely thankful for the individual care and support that TaraMarie gives to everyone. I look forward to seeing this technique become a part of every dancer’s practice.

When I came to TaraMarie's class I was one of those dancer's who took technique classes and thought that was all I needed. Now looking back I can't believe I ever could think that. I am hyper-mobile. TaraMarie taught me how to stand on my legs and control my movement; it has been the biggest challenge. I have had so many breakthroughs about my technique in her classes. She has also helped me through numerous injuries, mentally and physically. Sometimes during a performance season things can get kind of crazy. During those times TaraMarie's classes really helped to center and focus me. Training with TaraMarie in her Mind Body Dancer® yoga classes for the past three years has had a major positive impact on both my dancing and me as a person.

TaraMarie has developed a teaching and career that will have lasting impact on movement, dance, yoga, and somatic practice… She has brought an original vision to create what she calls, Mind Body Dancer®. I have taken her yoga class many times. It is rigorous, erudite and beautiful. Dance, yoga and somatic work become three tributaries that flow into a single experience of mind, heart and body. As a ballet teacher, I admire and appreciate how clearly and skillfully she creates themes that develop through the class. It becomes a yoga and dance/movement experience. Considering the lineage of Mabel Todd, Lulu Sweigard, and Irene Dowd, it is easy to imagine that the originality and impact of her ideas will place her among that august company.
