Tamara Stanfill - Founder & Creator PartOfTheSOULution
I’m a mindfulness meditation and yoga teacher based in Northern California, with a focus on uniting and connecting the mind, body, breath and inner consciousness, ultimately allowing and encouraging relaxation, present-moment awareness and a gentle quieting of the mind.
As a 200+ hours Yoga Alliance certified teacher, I offer a gentle vinyasa style flow class, incorporating elements from my Raja and Hatha yoga training, plus a little humor and self-deprecation - something I picked up from earlier careers as a Performer at Walt Disney World, or through improv comedy studies at The Upright Citizens Brigade in NY, among many other stage and screen experiences.
My intention is for my students to develop their own inner voice, trust, and wisdom; ultimately allowing them to find more love for themselves, others, and the world around them. My classes focus on meditation, mindfulness, self-compassion, and creating more awareness and presence, in order to bring that awakened energy into your daily life.
I began my yogic journey as a drama student (although I didn’t know it was called Yoga then), and continued those practices into college, studying Theatre Arts at the University of Northern Colorado. Later in life, while living overseas, I was a Karma Yogi for The Life Centre in London, England, helping with various classes, and also participated in The Mindfulness Association’s 2014 Mindfulness & Compassion Conference in Scotland. Once back in the US, I went on to be an integral member of the team helping to organize the Empathy & Compassion in Society conference hosted by the Tenzin Gyatso Institute in San Francisco in November, 2014.
When not teaching or practicing yoga, I can be found exploring the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, or leading wine tastings, as a PR Manager for several wineries in the region.
I'm always interested in connecting with compassionate like-minded people. Feel free to get in touch!
