Tara

Briggs

At first, Tara found her way to her mat to simply destress from her jobs working in the mental health field. She fell in love with the practice of meditating, and immediately noticed a feeling of lightness and a difference in her mood. After having suffered from anxiety most of her life, she noticed that the breath work, meditation, and movement calmed her mind, body, and spirit.

Yoga also played a role in Tara’s recovery from addiction. A key component to her recovery was learning to deal with emotions in a healthier way. By incorporating yoga into her recovery process, she gained new, healthy tools to handle stress and anxiety. Tara lost her brother to his own battle with addiction in 2017, and she has used her practice to gain the strength to process her grief. Tara teaches basic, but powerful classes inspired by Vinyasa. As a student, you can expect her classes to be approachable, fun, relaxing, and challenging.

Tara’s goal is to get her students to be in the moment and give them the confidence to embrace who they are on and off the mat. Tara completed her 200-hour Teacher Training at Mantra Yoga Studio in 2017. She has a degree in mental health and is Reiki 2 certified. Tara not only teaches at studios, but also at detox facilities, sober homes, and a high school for teens struggling with addiction. She also teaches recovery yoga classes designed for those who suffer from substance use disorder and classes geared for their loved ones.

Tara will forever remain a student and is extremely grateful for the teachers she met along her path. She looks forward to continuing to follow her passion for yoga and sharing it with others.

Yoga allows us to embrace both the light and dark that exists in all of us.

Nicole

Driscoll

Nicole’s journey of yoga began when she was a Dance major at The University of Massachusetts and during her studies she attended a holistic- healing dance retreat. While she was there, she was introduced to yoga, meditation, and massage as a way to increase flexibility and strength, and also as a way to reduce tension and open up the body in order to become a more dynamic dancer and performer. Through that experience she also began to understand the body’s capacity for self-healing both physically and emotionally through yoga and body work. After graduating college and spending 4 years in NYC studying dance and performing, she decided to continue her studies in yoga as well as become a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki 2 practitioner. She has been a Licensed MT for 17 years and through her work with her clients relieving their daily stress and injury, she has become more convinced of the power and necessity of yoga. She believes that it is an incredible tool that can be used to heal the body and mind!

Nicole is a graduate of the yogaspirit® 200-hour teacher training program and is currently continuing her studies with workshops and philosophy study groups. Her teaching style promotes a non-competitive and healing atmosphere that focuses on technique, proper form and alignment, and injury prevention. Her yoga styles include flow, form, and restorative. She promotes the use of props and assists to allow the body to relax deeper into the poses. She also adds elements of essential oils, gentle massage, and some meditation to help the students to have a more centered and grounded connection to their body and mind. She wants every student to leave class feeling 100 percent better than when they arrived… feeling revitalized, relaxed, and in tune to their body, mind and spirit!

Carolyn

Austin

Carolyn is certified in 100 hours through Yogaspirit® studios and 200 hours certified in Pathways Yoga Systems. She has been an occupational therapist since 1975 and would like to incorporate yoga into her career. Carolyn’s journey with yoga began in 2005 to help heal her emotional pain from family loses. This emerged into self-discovery allowing her to heal on many levels. With these two certifications her teaching style is geared to a wellness/therapeutic based class with the attention to follow alignment in a mindful manner. This allows her students to connect to their body and mind for self and spiritual awareness. As a yoga teacher and occupational therapist she understands the physiology of the body and can modify each pose according to a student’s specific physical condition that may attend her class. Carolyn wants to share her passion for yoga at unique facilities where rehabilitation and wellness are combined as an approach to healing.
