Tara Lemerise

Tara Lemerise teaches the time-honored philosophy and practice of yoga in an accessible and joyful way. Registered with Yoga Alliance at ERYT-200/RYT-500, Tara has been teaching yoga philosophy, movement, and meditation since 2005. She has over 7,700 hours of teaching experience.

According to Tara, there is nothing to “fix” with yoga. Instead, there are only more opportunities to understand and be more fully present to our separate and together experiences. She is known for offering clear and helpful instruction to students at all levels and makes the wisdom of yoga feel relevant and relatable.

Tara’s classes include action-based instructions in asana that are a result of study of anatomy, kinesiology and creative movement. In addition, Tara provides plenty of opportunities for stillness and contemplation in her classes, which are deeply influenced by her study and practice of Restorative Yoga.

Rebecca Henry

Owner/Director of Hatha Programming


Rebecca’s journey with yoga and meditation began more than twenty years ago when she took precepts with the Zen Buddhist Society of Compassionate Wisdom, finding that a vigorous yoga practice was the only way to keep her chattering mind quiet on her meditation mat. As those practices expanded into helping her with the stresses of school, and, later, work and family life, she has been exploring the benefits of her practice on and off the mat ever since.

Forever a student, Rebecca brings a beginners mind and an awakened heart to her practice and teaching. Compassion, empathy, humor and joy are at the core of all of her classes. Her focus is on uniting mindful movement with breath while helping people understand of how their own unique body affects their individual practice, in both a traditional hatha as well as a more vinyasa style.

 As a mother of two teenagers, she is impassioned to support other people in their journey into parenthood through the mindfulness and body-centered practices of yoga and meditation. As birth and postpartum doula, she emphasizes childbirth education and body awareness in her pre- and postnatal classes, bringing these practical aspects together with a warm, nurturing teaching style.

Rebecca completed her 200 hour training with Tara Lemerise at Willow Street Yoga in Takoma Park, MD, pre and post natal yoga teacher training with Debra Flashenburg of the Prenatal Yoga Center of New York City and is certified with Leslie Howard in Pelvic Floor Yoga™. She has also completed training with Tara Lemerise, of Tara Lemerise Yoga, in Restorative Yoga, and has completed a 50 hr Yin Yoga certification with Machelle Lee of Roots and River Yoga
