I went to Tara because my breathing problems. She started to work on an old scar I had from a thyroid surgery. After only two sessions where she released some of my scar tissue using Neurokinetic Therapy, my breathing improved so much. She also equipped me with very effective breathing exercises I could do at home. I can highly recommend a visit if you are stuck with your traditional treatment (as I was). Tara is so caring. This makes every treatment wholesome and healing. — Nicole
Tara is very knowledgeable in identifying muscle tightness that results in movement restriction and pain. In a very short time she released some problem areas and increased my range of motion while decreasing the pain in a chronic shoulder issue. She is worth checking out if you’re looking to improve movement and quality of mobility! – Colleen, Personal Trainer
Tara is health! She walks her walk, and tells her students “to be a student of your body”. Four years ago I thought I would take a yoga class. Within the first month I was hooked and became more in line with my mind and body’s needs. I had/have neck and shoulder issues which Tara addressed. In the past 4 years I have been seeing Tara privately and taken group workshops (which were outstanding), as well as continuing with Tara’s regular group fitness classes. Tara’s understanding of physiology is exceptional and has assisted me to understand my body function. Tara has assisted my breathing, posture, emotional blocks, to core strength and balance. Tara recognizes her students and clients needs and motivates them to success. My neck stronger, more flexible and able to function. My shoulders are off my ears, allowing me to open my heart. I am more balanced physically and emotionally! Even a 40 year old serious injury to my diaphragm has found greater movement and softness. Thank you , Tara, for your presence in my life; You have helped this student find “sankalpa” at 61.

My name is Donna. I am 73 years old and I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997. I do not take any prescription medicines for my MS and I try to do everything holistically.
When I first started working with Tara, my balance was very poor and certain parts of my body had little or no sensation.
Working with Tara, on a weekly basis, my ability to balance on 1 foot has gone from a few seconds to over a minute and sensation is starting to return to my damaged areas.
My ability to move freely and my general health have improved. I am very impressed with Tara‘s knowledge of how the body works and how to make it work better.
Hands that heal! Tara was able to release layers of tension and
allowed me to move freely again. I came to her to help soften 12″ of abdominal surgery scaring. After one session I noticed a difference in texture of my scars but more importantly, how much easier it was to move. – Tanya, Marketing Executive
I’ve struggled with daily neck pain and a few episodes of severe pain over the past few years, and had been feeling very discouraged, frustrated, and hopeless about finding a solution. I’d tried speaking to doctors and had tried massage, physio, and chiro without finding any permanent relief or solution. Working with Tara has finally given me a sense of hope and progress; she takes the time to do an in-depth assessment and explain her findings in a way that feels empowering. I now feel like I have an understanding of my problems and a sense of control over my pain.

Tara has helped me so much; I have had chronic back pain for many years and now, and I improve dramatically with every visit. Tara is very knowledgeable, intuitive and amazing. Every visit is fascinating and educating – I love our appointments! — Stacey, Home Care Specialist
Tara has expanded my understanding of my body’s dysfunctions, and given me tools to correct them. After a few sessions with Tara, I move with more ease and less pain, my handstand is stronger, and my chronic plantar fasciitis is dramatically improved. For me, what separates Tara from other healers (I have been to massage therapists, physical therapists, and osteopaths) is that she focuses on long-term sustainable solutions rather than temporary fixes. I used to suffer from painful tension in my neck. Many healers have been able to release it, but soon after it would tighten up again. Tara taught me that tension is a balance. If my neck is under too much tension, then another part of my body is probably slacking off. Tara’s magic was finding which part of my body needed to pick up the slack, and helping me train it to do so.

Tara Kachroo has been the best yoga and movement educator I’ve ever had. I started yoga with Tara in 2017 at Movati and was hooked after the first class. Recently I have been working one on one with her regarding hip problems that I developed over 3 years ago after I became pregnant. Over the years I had seen multiple doctors regarding my hip problems, none of them seemed to know what the problem was or seemed to want to help. They all passed me on to someone else. I had multiple X-rays and had even seen a sports specialist and always the same answers and no results. Since working with Tara I’ve never felt better and my hip pain is gone. Her knowledge and passion is inspiring. I would recommend Tara to anyone. — Wendy Bhatnagar
As a physiotherapist, I value Tara’s patient-centered approach and her anatomical knowledge. Her patience and keen eye for detail has significantly changed my body awareness and has given me the confidence to advance my practice.
I have been working with Tara over the past few months for private yoga and mobility sessions to improve mechanics in my yoga practice. Tara has been an amazing resource to adapt traditional poses to accommodate for my unique biomechanical challenges (scoliosis, postpartum). – Kristy
When I got pregnant with my first, I reached out to Tara to try some private prenatal mobility sessions, as I had really enjoyed her yoga classes. I found that at a time when I probably would have started to feel disappointed with how the changes in my body affected my typical workout routine, instead I was reinvigorated by the new exercises that Tara was able to introduce at each stage of the pregnancy. She was able to adapt the movements and self-massage that she taught in a way that responded to the physical symptoms I was experiencing–including diastis pubis symphasis and fallen arches. It made it so that I could continue to challenge myself, while feeling strong and supported even at the end of the pregnancy.

I just completed a 6 week small group private session with Tara Kachroo, and my mind is blown! She is an amazing instructor! Her wealth of knowledge of the human body- anatomy, how the body moves, and what may be hindering certain movements- is phenomenal. I can easily take what I learned in each session and apply it to my own self-care regimen, as well as use it in my professional practice as a massage therapist. Thank you Tara for teaching me how to be a student of my own body, and discovering ways to improve upon my body’s movements. — Julie, RMT
Thank you so much for the awesome [Hip] workshop on Sunday. I’ve had a chronic back pain for almost 2 years now. I’ve been going to see a few people now about it, and have spent waaaay to much $ on it. Any who, long story short, after a bit of a sore Monday. Tuesday was the first time in almost 2 years that I woke up with no back pain!!!!! I think what you are teaching people is awesome.

“It’s way too hard. I can’t do that. I can’t hold that pose for that long. Sound familiar?” I am “oh so” grateful that I took the Core Integration Class last night. I noticed the effects of it this morning. During my yoga practice, I was more conscious of the fact that, what you get out of your practice depends entirely on what you put in and to what extent you allow yourself to release old expectations, perceptions and opinions and to give yourself the time and space to learn new ways to connect body, mind and spirit. Thank you to Tara Kachroo and all the other yogis who attended too! Last night truly felt like a community and not like a class. I would highly and greatly recommend this class to anyone interested in allowing themselves to grow.

Her instruction is fantastic. Perfect amount of anatomy, enough hands on mobility work, followed with a good understanding of how and why to put the whole package together.

As a life long sufferer from digestive discomfort, I’m blown away by how quickly and effectively Tara’s Core classes and workshops have changed my body. After incorporating simple, yet effective movements using the Yoga Tune Up Coregeous Ball and strengthening exercises, I’ve noticed a huge shift in my core strength, stability and digestion.Tara’s work has transformed the way I connect to my body and has taught me that being a student of your body is the key to self discovery.

As a physiotherapist I found Tara’s Yoga Tune Up® Hip Workshop entertaining, accessible and wonderfully effective in releasing tight areas in the hips, improving both flexibility and muscle function while providing practical exercises to perform at home to assist with self-care.
– Kim, Registered Physiotherapist, Age 50
As a Registered Kinesiologist practicing in the field for 23 years, I knew that Tara had a depth of knowledge… She gives exceptional cues and corrects the participants’ form. Tara personally helped me with a few specific areas of weakness. She always goes above and beyond in helping her students achieve success. I highly recommend others to take Tara’s classes and workshops and personally experience her expertise and knowledge.
