Tara Bernstein combines her influences as dancer, dance teacher, and Iyengar Yoga teacher into a timely East-West synthesis that is as highly physical as it is internally focused.
Tara Bernstein earned a BA in Dance from Sarah Lawrence College. She taught and performed dance in NYC and Seattle from 1989 to 2002, teaching both adults and children; this work was influenced by the Skinner Releasing Dance Technique. Presently Bernstein lives in beautiful, green Seattle and is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher at the intermediate level. She is the director of University District Yoga, which offers weekly yoga classes, as well as yoga retreats. She performed in the Mix in 1990 and 1997 and is grateful to Karen Bernard and the Performance Mix for the opportunity to dance again.
