"It is here where my soul recognises your soul, where there is no distance or difference between us. It is here where we breathe the same air, we share a very similar skin and we walk upon the same earth.
It is here where we are the same, where we are one"
~ Tara South ~
This Is The Time For You To Embody Your Passion
Immerse yourself into a life changing yogic experience. You will be living, breathing, eating, and practising yoga with a group of fellow students with the same hunger to connect, learn and commit to the traditions of yoga.
Dive deep and learn what kind of teacher you will become, discover your levels of resilience and your strength in absorbing knowledge
Hello, I'm Tara...
I'm happy to meet you here and now...
Yoga is not what I do, it's my lifestyle. It’s my medicine, my rituals, my guidance, my coming home. My passion is to share it with the world.
Through my 20 years of discipline in the art of yoga, and my more recent trauma therapy background, I have deepened, discovered and expanded. This is my path, and it is ever-evolving. It's what I share with you on and off the mat. It's the REAL DEAL! To simply observe and let the truth unravel, allowing us to build and deepen connections
I'd be honoured to guide you through
The Mandala 200 to help you discover your real deal.
The Mandala 200
Join me, Tara, this November for a Yoga Alliance Accredited 200hr Yoga Teacher Training immersive course.
Embody your passion for yoga with a month-long immersive journey of living, breathing, and practising yoga. It's going to be intense, expansive and life changing. It’s time to dive deep and learn what kind of teacher you will become, your levels of resilience and your uptake of knowledge.
Our space to learn is the wonderful Open Mind Space in Newcastle. Each morning we will meet early in the new upstairs sala, our private cocoon that will provide a nurturing, safe space for you to blossom.
I have the honour of leading the training. But it cannot be done without the amazing Mandala YMR team who come together from different backgrounds and lineages to share their knowledge, passion and devotion with you. It’s time to dive deep and learn what kind of teacher you will become, your levels of resilience and your uptake of knowledge.
Our experienced and accredited teachers will guide you through each energetic day. Your training will be taught in Sanskrit and English as we are dedicated to upholding the custom and culture of Yoga as a practical life aid - not a religion. We give you the tools and attention for you to expand into the best version of you in the here and now! Grasp what it means to be a teacher in servitude to your students.
Our 200hr teacher training has been designed to take you out of your norm and immerse you in a yoga lifestyle. You’ll be nestled safely under my wing for a month until you are ready to fly!
Are you really ready?
If you are truly ready for your 200 YTT, you will be prepared for:
A month of long, exhausting, intense days
Sharing everything with a group of new people, and maybe some personalities you find testing
An emotional journey of love, hate, exhaustion, insecurities, pride and pure joy
To learn learn learn, and after your day in the sala, do some homework
More truth bombs, like this one
Leaving not as a teacher, but still as a student, ready to immerse themselves further and build on the foundations we have given you
The most fulfilling, cherishing, beautiful experience of your life that will take you and your heart by surprise
