Bio
A graduate of Whittler college’s Athletic Training program, Tamara has accumulated over 10 years of experience in sports medicine while working in a variety of health care settings. Over her career, Tamara has developed an intricate knowledge of the body’s ability to heal and adapt.

As the Head Athletic Trainer at the California Institute of Technology, she was responsible for 18 Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division III Teams. In the Spring of 2005, Tamara completed her Master’s Degree in Kinesiology at California State University at Fullerton. Her thesis was presented at the Southwest ACSM Annual Conference in November of 2005 and at the NATA National Conference in June of 2006.

While an undergraduate student, Tamara’s mom was diagnosed with end-stage breast cancer. Her mother’s experience taught her the importance of addressing both the physical and emotional components of injury and disease. Tamara began incorporating energy work into her practice in 2005. She continues to refine her techniques through education and practice. You can reach her at 805.298.2011 or thebodydefined@gmail.com.

Yoga

Category: Health / Fitness
Description
Often associated with stretching in Western traditions, yoga is much more than a physical practice. Yoga encompasses the mind, the body and the vital link that connects us to the universe. Through yoga’s primary focus - yoking the breath to movement - we are able to harness the ruminations of the mind and bring this moment into focus, relaxing our stressed out systems and creating an environment for healing. Each private or semi-private session is geared towards your interests, intent and abilities.
