Her approach to yoga, nutrition, and everyday well-being are relatable and inspiring.  Tara has several DVD series, two top selling books and is the designer and face of Reebok’s yoga lifestyle line.

As a busy and accomplished yoga instructor, Tara gives her tips for staying productive throughout the day:

She explains each tip further for maximum comfort and productivity:

1. Stay Hydrated: Keep a big glass of water with you at your desk and in meetings. It’s great for staying hydrated, cutting cravings, and also keeps you getting up and moving around (on your walks to the bathroom)

2. Take mini-yoga breaks: Even at your desk there is so much you can do. Easy twisting side to side, Alternate nostril breathing for focus, and eagle arms to release tension in your shoulders and back.

3. Office Yoga Class: Get your co-workers involved. Round up your office to participate in a lunchtime yoga class, or even before or after work class. At a studio or in the office, practicing together is good for everyone’s health and wellbeing and also good team building!

4. Take a Deep Breath: Find the ease. This is a nice result of regular practice of yoga and meditation and you can also practice during the day. When something is frustrating, take a deep breath or go for a walk if that works for you. Then come back and proceed with ease. Water is stronger than rock - this mindset works in negotiation, just like in yoga class, and the rest of your life. Stay easy and enjoy the ride!
