Tara Samaai, a yoga teacher born in Cape Town, South Africa, started her yoga journey as a self-taught practitioner in 2014. Her curiosity about the practice continued to expand with every class and workshop attended and led her to complete a 200 hour YTT at Wild Thing in 2019. The yoga practice in all it’s vastness is always teaching us that we are students learning something new every day. Understanding how to treat our bodies with care and compassion is so important and it feels so good and it’s one of the many reasons Tara loves to share this practice.
Her teaching includes vinyasa style flows ranging from slow to strong. She loves to sequence classes from movements from her own self-practice, creating new, sweaty classes that focus on mobility, intuitive movement and guided meditations. For Tara there really are not enough words to describe the feeling of dropping into your body and breath for a moment and just experiencing that spaciousness within.

Passions and favourite places to be when not teaching:
When I am not doing yoga on the mat, I am usually in nature, camping or at the beach! I love to spend time with humans who bring out the best in another and even more inspired by those ready for radical change.
