Throughout the ages, people have wanted to be free, happy and fulfilled. Especially during this period, such aspirations may seem far away as we find ourselves in challenging circumstances, with the future both unpredictable and unclear.
But the key to lasting freedom, happiness and fulfilment is always to discover it on the inside. Then, no matter the ever-changing nature of life’s ups and downs, we are steady and at peace in ourselves. No matter the intensity of the wind, we can transform ourselves on the inside, to be able to ride the waves, accelerate our growth and enjoy life.
In the courses at Tara, we offer the tools and wisdom from ancient spiritual systems for discovering this inner freedom. Join us for an amazing day of activities connected to yoga, Tantra and spirituality to see how our courses can help you radiate happiness and fulfilment from the inside, no matter the outer circumstances.
It has been 10 years since we opened our London centre, so this Open Day is particularly special. We invite both newcomers and current students to join us for this special day of talks and workshops.
Outline of the programme
10 Activities spread over 3 studios
10.30-11.15 Meditation – Finding the compass within [Foca]
Navigating through life is an art… with so many different perspectives and challenges and the numerous cliches we are confronted with daily, we truly need a good compass. Luckily, we have the best tool of navigation inside – our spiritual heart! In this morning meditation we will aim to discover and deepen the perspective of the heart which will enable us to follow our path wisely.
11.30-13.00 Hatha Yoga – Talk and Practice [Magdalena]
Yoga is a wealth of knowledge and techniques that can become a way of living – bringing harmony and peace on every level of your being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Get a taste of the ancient form of yoga that we teach at Tara, where we learn to improve our life, from the inside out.

14.00-14.45 Talk: The University of Life [Maria + Bogdan]
Tara’s unique approach to yoga, tantra and spirituality
Life is a play, a game, a puzzle, and sometimes a struggle. Yoga and Tantra teach us universally valid principles and laws which allow us to navigate life consciously. At Tara we provide the methods and tools which can be easily applied in everyday life. In this talk we will outline what makes Tara’s courses different, and how they can impact your life.
15.00-16.30 Tantra – Love always wins [Kate + Nikos]
The lessons of love are beautiful and surprising. In moments of challenge, it can seem like a huge chasm has to be crossed in order to love, and we can be convinced that love is impossible or not deserved. Tantra teaches that love is the necessary step to becoming truly free, no matter the outer circumstances, and offers tools and methods to get there. Join us to explore the amazing power of the heart!
17.00-18.00 Talk: Discover your inner compass [Foca]
A compass always points north, and in the same way, an awakened heart will always show us the right way of living. Beyond social conventions and the endless chatter of the mind, there is a voice, a vertical force within, that simply knows what is true – the voice of the heart. In this talk we will share insights about the heart as the inner compass and how we can make our heart the leader of our life.
11.30-13.00 Couples Yoga – Talk and Practice [Kate]
Based on the ancient tradition of Hatha Yoga, couples yoga is an amazing spiritual method. Doing yoga in a couple or pair, greatly amplifies the effects that are usually felt when doing yoga alone. It is a wonderful way to deepen non-verbal connection and communication, to release tensions, and even get a huge boost of energy. You will need a partner for this workshop.
13.00-14.00 LUNCH BREAK
