This is a community space we travel to each time we step onto a mat together.
Moving the body as a portal to soul work, this is a safe place to practise re-membering what your body often already knows.
“Tamara’s speaking voice alone should be enough to bring anyone’s soul, body, and spirit into alignment. But as it happens, the contents of Tamara’s lessons hit the perfect and elusive sweet spot that perfectly combines physical and mental practice. I always leave Tamara’s classes having reached a state of relaxation in very few other places.”– Imran,
“I was always nervous about going to yoga but Tamara has an amazing talent for making sure that everyone in the room gets the most of the session. Whether you are a novice or experienced you feel like you get your own individual lesson throughout the session. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone at any level.”– Tor,
“As time goes by I realise more and more that Tam’s teaching style and yoga class are incredibly rare and special. When I do a class with Tamara my mind is totally engaged as the class runs seamlessly, building up to a challenging pose before a calming lunar section and the most delicious savasana which includes her handmade organic linseed & lavender eye pillows. She never misses a beat – ever. She plays funky music, urban music, touching music. She puts this wonderfully tingly feeling menthol “china gel” on your shoulders. She reads us poetry!!! She makes me feel that I’ve both had a proper full on work out, but also done something good for my soul too. Perhaps feeling “held in the palm of her hand” is the best way to describe how I feel in her class – you can totally let go and fully trust in this amazing teacher to take you on a 90 minute journey that is just the right amounts of peaceful, challenging and rewarding. In a nutshell – I cannot recommend TPRYoga enough! Do a class!”– April,
“Tamara is an inspiring teacher. Each class is wonderfully thought out, well presented, and (importantly) well focused. Her classes are all that yoga should be – full of joy, self love, and sweaty poses. The lengthy and beautifully scented savasanas also add a wonderful quality to the class (and let’s not forget that heavenly China gel!) Everyone feels welcome and relaxed in Tamara’s classes, where she not only teaches amazingly choreographed yoga but helps you center yourself and relieve all stress. I’ve ranted and raved about her course to all my friends and genuinely could not recommend it more. I would give her more stars if I could!”– Lara,
“Tam’s yoga instruction has a brilliant way of balancing technique and alignment with meditation and mental health, without compromising either. Her classes are well thought out and always consider that different people have different bodies that can do different things, making sure there’s always a variation for everyone. She gently challenges you and every week you work on new things that taken together to improve your practice in an incremental and balanced way. I leave feeling lighter and healthier every time! Take this class!!!!”– Dana,
“Tamara has the ability to make her classes welcoming and accessible for total beginners (me on my first time) and seasoned yogis without either of us falling short of an excellent class. Tamara’s classes are intimate, personal, emotional and challenging. I can feel fragile and strong at the same time. She brings poetry to classes and tells us about how she’s taught yoga to refugee teenagers that week – doing yoga with Tamara is a joy.”– Kate,
Hey, I’m Tamara.
I am interested in supporting you in reclaiming your inherent connection to your body and inner world through movement, meditation and play.
Often, modern life moves us away from this, but I argue this connection is our natural state. Together we will explore tools to heal and transform ourselves, in order to transform our world.
In this work I draw on, acknowledge, and thank the Indian tradition of yoga, that I am blessed and privileged to access in this lifetime. For more details of the Republic’s vibe and principles, see our Manifesto.
I offer a range of styles, sometimes interwoven and sometimes as focussed sessions. In class we practise fluid vinyasa movement, restful yin approaches, mobility practises, in-depth meditations and detailed myofascial release techniques.
There is always poetry and a bangin’ soundtrack. Lessons are joyful, energetic explorations designed to develop the body’s strength and flexibility, hone the mind’s knowledge of active, safe alignment and give you space to feel.
Expect invitations to move freely, fluid honing of sequences and delicious adjustments (if desired), offering more safety and space in poses.
