Yogi Tara Datt

Rishikesh, India

Yogi Tara has been practicing yoga since his childhood and has studied Raja, Hatha and Astanga yoga. His formal university education began with studying Sanskrit in which he obtained both a Bachelors and Masters degree at the Sanskrit University Haridwar. He went on to further this education and follow his true calling by also completing a Masters in Yogic Science and Vedic Philosophy at the same university.

His passion for teaching began early on in life when he started to give Asana classes at Gyan Yog Path yoga school. This budding passion blossomed and grew as did his knowledge and personal experience. Then he started travelling around the world to explore his knowledge and experience.

Yogi Tara has been teaching at the Nada Yoga School since its first Teacher training course. He now teaches classes specialising in Hataha, Asthanga, Vinyasa and sanskrit mantra chanting. In his teaching career, he hopes to bring to his students a deeper understanding of the true meaning of Yoga by bringing together theory as well as his personal experience.

Yogi Tara defines his success as being those moments in which imparting his knowledge and interacting with his students brings about a transformational change in their lives. He lives to spread peace, love, happiness and health to all.

Yoga Style: For me Yoga is an art to connect to our self and all different styles have their on way to connect with this Beautiful Art (Yoga). So i like all different styles of yoga but I am follower of Raja Yoga.

Programs I teach at Siddhi Yoga: I teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Kriyas in 200 and 300 hours programs and introduce some part of Philosophy and Mantras.

Favorite yoga pose: All Yoga poses are favorite because they all are very special in their on way and different from each other.

My favorite place in the world: Where I feel peace and connected to myself that place is special and favorite for me.

yoga teacher training review by Lucas from France

Namaste Tara, I’m really happy about the month I spent here and it’s big part thanks to you. You’ve been a wonderful teacher and give most of joy in this part of my yoga journey. It will help me for sure in the future and definitely change my way to consider yoga. You didn’t just explain what was Asana, pranayama or meditation, you made us be able to experience it by ourselves and I’m feeling grateful for this. And more than a teacher it was such a pleasure to spend time with, having conversation because you’re a wonderful human being!!

I truly hope we’ll meet again in the future! Let’s meet in Rishikesh, safe journey and see you soon!
