Tamra Holder has been studying and practicing yoga since 1999 and teaching since 2002. She initially trained and apprenticed with Sarahjoy Marsh in the Anusara Yoga style and is now certified at the 500-hour level with the Healing Yoga Foundation of San Francisco. She is firmly grounded in the Krishnamacharya-Desikachar yoga tradition which takes a holistic approach and focuses on the appropriate application of yoga for each individual. In March 2010 she became certified in Aston® for Yoga through intensive study with visionary and master movement educator Judith Aston. In individual sessions that combine bodywork and yoga Tamra uses an advanced form of myofascial release to neutralize the effects from injury, strengthen and reclaim vital energy. She applies Aston® movement principles to therapeutic yoga postures to help you find your optimal alignment, and the joy of moving freely in a balanced body.
Tamra has been a Licensed Massage Therapist in Oregon since 2003. Her bodywork and yoga instruction is informed by her training with visionary and master teacher Judith Aston, the creator of an innovative system of bodywork, ergonomics and movement coaching designed to restore natural alignment and dynamic well-being.
