ABOUT TARA | Tara was introduced to the practice yoga by her High School dance company in 2008. Continuing her dance career at Fairfield University, she began to deepen her yoga practice focusing on asana and pranayama. Tara quickly fell in love with the physical and mental benefits of the practice and felt a deep connection to the yoga community and her teachers.
In 2013, Tara completed her 200 hour Teacher Training at YogaWorks NYC under teacher trainer Chrissy Carter. Her training emphasized proper alignment and purposeful sequencing along with anatomy, philosophy and the history of yoga. Tara continued her education completing her Level 1 Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training, Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga Teacher Training, Reiki 1 Certification and most recently a training with the Art of Yoga Project.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent. Check them out!
Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
