We are delighted to celebrate Tammy Thompson as our Teacher of the Month for January 2021. Tammy is a kind soul, passionate in heart, and super nurturing. Her unique gift and radiant spirit makes us and her students filled with gratitude. Learn how Tammy shares her passion of yoga with all of us.
When/how did you discover yoga?
I discovered yoga in my early twenties. I was looking for a counterbalance from running middle/longer distances. I was not super-fast but was super tight. I loosened up rather quickly, but the deeper more impactful results of the practice took time.
What do you love about teaching yoga?
Where do I begin? I love sharing the practice that has so positively changed my life. I love working on sequencing that I feel will be helpful to my students. Mostly, I truly cherish the connection I feel with my students.
How has yoga and meditation changed your life?
Yoga and meditation have taught me to stay present, to stay grounded, and to live in a truly authentic way.
Why do you teach at Bella Prana?
Bella Prana feels like home to me. I was a student here from the time the studio opened on MacDill Ave. I have known many of the teachers and students for a long time, and I know the heart of the studio. This a beautiful place to teach and practice.
Tell us a fun fact about you.
I am a very proud mom to two amazing kids and wife to my best friend Blake. We will celebrate 23yrs this summer!
