Never felt better, my hip pain is gone

Tara Kachroo has been the best yoga and movement educator I’ve ever had. I started yoga with Tara in 2017 at Movati and was hooked after the first class. Recently I have been working one on one with her regarding hip problems that I developed over 3 years ago after I became pregnant. Over the years I had seen multiple doctors regarding my hip problems, none of them seemed to know what the problem was or seemed to want to help. They all passed me on to someone else. I had multiple X-rays and had even seen a sports specialist and always the same answers and no results. Since working with Tara I’ve never felt better and my hip pain is gone. Her knowledge and passion is inspiring. I would recommend Tara to anyone.  — Wendy Bhatnagar

Active, pain free life style

Tara is an exceptionally talented instructor of body movement. Her cheerfulness encourages me to explore and deepen my own body awareness. Tara speaks clearly and shares precise instructions at a calm, methodical pace which gives me time to hear, interpret, and do the action. I deeply appreciate that she respectfully asks permission before doing any hands-on body repositioning. She seems to be forever creating new movements that spark my curiosity to learn more, to move more efficiently, and ultimately to enjoy living an active, pain free, lifestyle. — Lucy

An Amazing Resource

As a physiotherapist, I value Tara’s patient-centered approach and her anatomical knowledge. Her patience and keen eye for detail has significantly changed my body awareness and has given me the confidence to advance my practice.

I have been working with Tara over the past few months for private yoga and mobility sessions to improve mechanics in my yoga practice. Tara has been an amazing resource to adapt traditional poses to accommodate for my unique biomechanical challenges (scoliosis, postpartum). – Kristy

Private Pre Natal Yoga

When I got pregnant with my first, I reached out to Tara to try some private prenatal mobility sessions, as I had really enjoyed her yoga classes. I found that at a time when I probably would have started to feel disappointed with how the changes in my body affected my typical workout routine, instead I was reinvigorated by the new exercises that Tara was able to introduce at each stage of the pregnancy. She was able to adapt the movements and self-massage that she taught in a way that responded to the physical symptoms I was experiencing–including diastis pubis symphasis and fallen arches. It made it so that I could continue to challenge myself, while feeling strong and supported even at the end of the pregnancy.

Movement Education and Yoga Tune Up

I just completed a 6 week small group private session with Tara Kachroo, and my mind is blown! She is an amazing instructor! Her wealth of knowledge of the human body- anatomy, how the body moves, and what may be hindering certain movements- is phenomenal. I can easily take what I learned in each session and apply it to my own self-care regimen, as well as use it in my professional practice as a massage therapist. Thank you Tara for teaching me how to be a student of my own body, and discovering ways to improve upon my body’s movements. ‎  — Julie, RMT

Pain Relief with Yoga Tune Up

Thank you so much for the awesome [Hip] workshop on Sunday. I’ve had a chronic back pain for almost 2 years now. I’ve been going to see a few people now about it, and have spent waaaay to much $ on it. Any who, long story short, after a bit of a sore Monday. Tuesday was the first time in almost 2 years that I woke up with no back pain!!!!! I think what you are teaching people is awesome.

“It’s way too hard. I can’t do that. I can’t hold that pose for that long. Sound familiar?” I am “oh so” grateful that I took the Core Integration Class last night. I noticed the effects of it this morning. During my yoga practice, I was more conscious of the fact that, what you get out of your practice depends entirely on what you put in and to what extent you allow yourself to release old expectations, perceptions and opinions and to give yourself the time and space to learn new ways to connect body, mind and spirit. Thank you to Tara Kachroo and all the other yogis who attended too! Last night truly felt like a community and not like a class. I would highly and greatly recommend this class to anyone interested in allowing themselves to grow.

Mobility Coaching

Her instruction is fantastic. Perfect amount of anatomy, enough hands on mobility work, followed with a good understanding of how and why to put the whole package together.

Digestion, Mobility, and Core strength

As a life long sufferer from digestive discomfort, I’m blown away by how quickly and effectively Tara’s Core classes and workshops have changed my body. After incorporating simple, yet effective movements using the Yoga Tune Up Coregeous Ball and strengthening exercises, I’ve noticed a huge shift in my core strength, stability and digestion.Tara’s work has transformed the way I connect to my body and has taught me that being a student of your body is the key to self discovery.

Yoga Tune Up and hip flexibility

As a physiotherapist I found Tara’s Yoga Tune Up® Hip Workshop entertaining, accessible and wonderfully effective in releasing tight areas in the hips, improving both flexibility and muscle function while providing practical exercises to perform at home to assist with self-care.

Depth of Knowledge

As a Registered Kinesiologist practicing in the field for 23 years, I knew that Tara had a depth of knowledge… She gives exceptional cues and corrects the participants’ form. Tara personally helped me with a few specific areas of weakness. She always goes above and beyond in helping her students achieve success. I highly recommend others to take Tara’s classes and workshops and personally experience her expertise and knowledge.

Athletic Performance and Yoga

“As a triathlete, I can be pretty hard on my body. Allotting time to come for Tara’s classes and workshops is greatly beneficial, and makes a profound difference in how my body is able to recover, rebuild, and repair after tough training sessions so I can perform to my potential. She is knowledgable and informative, and naturally and immediately responds to any and all of my questions, comments or concerns that I have about my body, and how I can support it to help my performance.  She goes above and beyond to support her students, and I’m fortunate to be one of them.”

— Jenna, Triathlete, Age 33

“The combination of a desk job and daily Crossfit workouts create frequent aches and strains in my body. Tara’s instruction is the perfect complement to my week, reversing almost all the negative effects of my day to day and restoring my balance in one 90 minute mobility session. Readily available before and after class, Tara’s passion for helping people heal their bodies really shines through one on one. Tara has truly mastered her craft, a perfect blend of experience and a constantly expanding breadth of knowledge. One glance is often all it takes for her to offer customized, hands on correction, optimizing any pose to suit one’s individual needs and ability.”

— Nathan, Crossfitter, Age 35

Upper back Issues

“I would definitely recommend this for anyone with shoulder and upper back issues. My shoulder (pain from repetitive overuse) hasn’t felt this good in years. The exercises are easy to repeat and understand. The tune-up balls work magic!”

— Alissa, Teacher, Age 40

Enhancing personal practice

“I have enjoyed all the workshops I have taken with Tara and gotten some […] new insights to enhance my personal practice and some exciting new techniques to guide my clients to better health. I applaud and appreciate her enthusiasm to share the valuable information that she has studied.”

— Mary, Thai Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher, Age 59

Movement Education

“Tara is one of the most generous and knowledgeable yoga instructors I have met in the 15 years I have been practicing yoga. After just 2 months with Tara, I received more individual corrections for my postures than I have received over the past 2 years. Tara is always available after class to offer additional suggestions to help me tailor my practice to my body’s needs. And as a newcomer to self massage, body rolling, and mobility techniques, she also helped me integrate Yoga Tune Up balls more effectively into my practice. Waterloo is lucky to have such a wonderful instructor!”

— Sarah, Doctoral Candidate in Law, Age 30

Continuing Education for RMTs

“After completing a series of 6 sessions tailored to RMT’s with Tara I feel not only inspired to explore these self massage techniques further but that I have gained an invaluable tool for both self care and client remex.

Tara has an in depth knowledge of the body, incredible observation/assessment skills and an ability to articulate this knowledge in a clear manner that is easy to absorb.  This continuing education has been some of the most interesting I have done in recent years. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to learn new skills that easily transfer into practical application for self or clients.”

— Kelly, Registered Massage Therapist, Age 47

“I am amazed at how much I learned about my own body from the workshop series. Now I just need to put that knowledge into practice!”

 — Julie, Homemaker and Mother, Age 48

Yoga Classes

“Tara teaches the connection between mind and body. Her yoga classes benefit from her in depth knowledge of the body and what will benefit us. Tara’s diverse poses/exercises keep students interested and her high level of emotional intelligence adds to our motivation. Her focus and gentle humor make studying with her a pleasure.”
