Yoga Mentoring - "Tara Time"

Firstly, let us just say that Tara did not name this service - strangely enough her clients did :)

No matter what we called the one on one integrated mentoring programs, you guys just kept asking for "Tara Time".  So...be careful what you wish for, here it is, a mentoring service for Yoga Teachers and Yoga Lovers that want to focus on their personal, professional and spiritual development. Your health and wellbeing on an unlimited level.

Who is "Tara Time" for?

We all have moments of feeling stuck in our world. Stuck in our yoga practice, our work, our levels of understanding, our levels of engagement, our levels of interest... It's time to carve out a space in your week for your own development. Development based on your mental, physical and emotional self. 

In a nutshell it's for two types of Yogi's...

Through a range of carefully curated topics, Tara will take you through an opening of heart and mind, an opening sequence based on the Yoga Sutras, Chakra's, Meridians, Meditation and Mindful Work & Purpose concepts. It's all about the practice you do on and off the mat - in theory and in practice.  

Tara Time is your clear, independent and personal space where you can engage, question, learn and develop your personal and professional life.

So how does it work?

Once you have booked your One on One Chats or Tara Time Packages, Tara will be in touch to organise your upcoming discussions. Prior to the catch up, you will receive a Client Intention form via email. This form encourages you to think about what your purpose is for the sessions.

There will be homework!  Yep, good ol' fashioned homework :) Think of Tara Time like working on a project, you will want certain outcomes. In this case though, the project is You.  

If you want to engage in Tara Time in a flexible way, you can choose Tara's One on One Chats.

One on One Chats are perfect for people that want to focus on one topic, at a time of their choosing. You will go through the individual session with Tara and continue with your project homework in the days following.

This is a more self lead, sporadic engagement with Tara Time experience.

  • Understanding Sutras & Dosh's

  • Standing in your purpose

Words from our Mandala Yoga Family



I was seeking guidance for my spiritual journey and have tried a few mentors but it wasn't the right fit until I met Tara. I didn't even know she did this kind of thing, I just took the chance and asked anyways.  It was one of the best decisions I took for my journey, truly life changing. 


The space she created for me was safe, nonjudgmental and I felt like I can just be and say anything. 

Tara has given me guidance to find my purpose, let go of my shame and the confidence and courage to initiate what I want to do in my life and to be independent. 


Thank you Tara for being you and thank you for being able to extend your gifts to others.



My time with Tara has been the most memorable and beneficial of my yoga journey!


Not only has Tara helped me get into poses that I thought impossible, she has helped me understand my body more – and shown me how to tailor poses for my body. Every time I am with her, I leave feeling elated, having shared so much laughter and received an abundance of spiritual guidance.


Tara has great energy, my ‘Tara time’ is my favourite time!
