About us

Tara Barton

Experienced yoga teacher delivering Ashtanga, Jivamukti, pregnancy and mum and baby yoga classes all over Manchester and the Didsbury area.
Yoga has been a constant in my life since I began practising with Mike Nevitt in 1997. It brings me moments of great peace and clarity in the crazy world in which we live. Physically it has sculpted and strengthened my body – mentally it has calmed my mind.

I have had the good fortune to train with and learn from many great teachers including David Swenson, John ScottMatthew Sweeney, David Williams, Brian Cooper (Union Yoga), Sharon Gannon and David Life. I teach from several traditions including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Sivananda, Satyananda and Bihar, and my classes consist of flowing sequences of physically demanding yoga postures. I also use breathing and deep relaxation techniques which help still the mind.

Having trained with Uma Dinsmore-tuli, I also teach pregnancy and post–natal yoga, yoga for mum and baby, yoga for fertility, and children's yoga (age 0-16.) I am also a fully trained masseuse: Swedish, sports, pregnancy and children's peer massage.

My relationship with yoga started in 1998. Over the years I dipped in and out and tried as many yoga styles as I could lay my mat down in front of; including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Hatha, and more recently Jivamukti. In 2002, following a life changing trip to Thailand, I retrained as a Holistic therapist, where I qualified in ITEC Anatomy, Physiology & Massage and VTCT Complementary Therapies Diploma which included Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Massage. I have also studied and have received my certification for Reiki I, II and III.

I trained and was awarded the Yoga Alliance 200 hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certificate with SYT Barry Todd of Mind and Body in Bury. I continue to learn and attend regular workshops and went on to further my studies in a year long course with Marilyn Heginbotham. I am currently on the Union Yoga Ashtanga teacher training course under the tutelage of Brian Cooper and Nichi Green at Yoga Space in Leeds.

I am on a journey to share yoga, holistic health & wellbeing to assist with nudging away old habitual patterns and welcome in change and personal growth. 

For me its not just the physical side of yoga, I love to teach and practice yoga to allow for transformation and organically integrate the influence of yoga into everyday life.
