About Taru Tuohiniemi

I am an experienced yoga teacher, conscious dance facilitator and a change coach. Having gone through few health challenges myself and living in diverse cultures over a 15 year period – from Africa to Asia, from Europe to Australia – I appreciate the human capacity to adapt, grow, connect, and to establish roots and community where our home is.

From this space, I am passionate about offering transformative and authentic yoga practices, from subtle to more tangible, to suit individual needs and wellbeing.
I enjoy empowering people in their unique expression so they may shine and thrive!

I offer public, private and corporate yoga and conscious dance events,
retreats and change coaching.

“Sherrie, thank you for letting me be me, while experiencing your amazing gift.”
