Artist Spotlight: Tara Beth Gunduz
At Rock Collector's Daughter, each crystal is hand wrapped by Tara Beth Gunduz and is inspired by both the energy of the given crystal and Tara's dedicated yoga practice. If you would like to learn more, please read on or Contact Us for more information.
Tara often pairs crystals with essential oils to amplify their benefits. If you would like to learn more about essential oils, please visit our Essential Oils page.
Tara achieved her 200-hour RYT through Alchemy of Yoga in Nosara, Costa Rica in the Summer of 2017, where her teachers described her as “joyful, enchanting, and encouraging”. Her primary goal for all students is to encourage them to be positive, confident, and empowered members of the World.
Tara currently teaches vinyasa, restorative and Buti yoga flows at a studio in Somerville, MA, and is a personal yoga instructor for a corporation in Boston, MA. She has taught yoga to high school athletes, and incorporates mindfulness and meditation into her daily life. Tara has taught private yoga sessions for athletes, in particular, runners who are looking to complement their training.
Tara's teaching style is mindful, spirited and supportive. With a passion for aromatherapy and a background in education, empowerment and the healing energies, her classes engage all of the senses, while encouraging students to live each day with purpose, actualize their potential and nurture the best version of themselves possible.
