Hi I'm Tara, the owner and founder of The Little Yoga House.
I first stepped onto a yoga mat in 2002 after some friends coaxed me into joining them at the gym. To my surprise it sparked an interest and I really enjoyed it. I continued and developed a strong vinyassa practice over the next 10 years.
During my 1st pregnancy in 2012, yoga became the highlight of my week and soon an unmissable part of my life, encouraging me to take the leap into teaching after the birth of my 2nd son nearly 6 years ago.
I trained in 2014 with YogaBellies specialising in children's yoga and yoga practices especially for the female body. I have such a thirst for knowledge regarding the pre and postnatal periods as I am constantly inspired by the Women and children attending my classes.
Since the birth of my 3rd child I have really enjoyed exploring other aspects of yoga and their benefits. I have a passion for anatomy and in recent years I have studied with Donna Farhi, Amy Matthews and in 2018 I became a Somatic Exercise coach training in Dalkey with Lisa Peterson.
You may also know me as Tara YogaBellies as I have been offering YogaBellies classes in the Belfast area for 6 years now and am always so grateful and humbled by the lovely YogaBellies Community that has flourished in Belfast during this time.
I am also a Birth & Postnatal Doula in Belfast, HypnoBirthing Educator, 3 Step Rewind Practitioner and love offering Emotional & Practical Support when TTC and throughout the journey of Pregnancy and Motherhood.
I have always had a passion for massage from a very young age, after finishing school I went to gain my qualification in Beauty Therapy, Reflexology, Crystal Massage, Sports Massage, Indian Head and Pregnancy Massage, and intends to add more qualifications to my list.
