About me

Occupation Certified Yoga Instructor
Location St. Joseph, Missouri, United States
Introduction Welcome to Joyful Yoga with Tara! My name is Tara Duckworth I am a yoga instructor, craft dabbler, and wannabe vegetarian chef extraordinaire. I have been practicing yoga for six years. My practice began as a means of physical therapy and quickly transformed into a means of strength, both mental and physical. I completed my Yoga Alliance approved 200 hour yoga teacher certification program at KCFitnessLink in Kansas City, MO. Studying hatha, vinyasa, and power yoga my classes are designed to calm the mind and gently restore and strengthen the body. I live in small town Missouri with my husband Kellen, three destructive and cuddly cats, our beloved pup Ellie, and our newest edition- the bump. I am currently pregnant with our first child and can't wait to meet him or her! I like to keep myself busy with many projects and am always devouring a book or two. Yoga is much more than postures and breathing, it is a lifestyle. Yoga is the process mindfulness and care in all things. I would like to use this blog as an extension of my classes and to help build community. A resource of sharing if you will. We have so much to learn from each other, so let's get the conversation started!
