Be Here. Be Home.

Tara Patterson, RYT200

"I have dabbled with yoga for years but started a consistent home practice in 2015 after getting out of the Marines in an attempt to find relief from chronic pain. I realized quickly after separating from the military that the healthcare I was receiving left something to be desired and decided to take my health into my own hands by enrolling in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I completed the program and became a holistic health coach in March 2017. For the first time in my life, I had realized that there was so much more to health than the physical body. Divine intervention brought me to Yoga Mat, where I completed my 200-hour YTT. I hope to combine everything I have learned about total health and wellness to guide others down their own paths to healing and happiness, both on the mat and beyond."
