Bio: Tari Prinster
During her cancer treatments and surgeries, Tari began to think about how few options there were and teachers that understood what life-long physical restrictions and emotional challenges a survivor encounters. Through yoga, Tari personally found not only a way to reduce pain, strengthen her immune system, feel younger and stay healthy, but guidance thru cancer recovery and survivorship and a complete science for managing life’s daily challenges and stress. Wanting to bring this understanding of yoga to others and working together with OM Yoga under sponsorship for the Libby Ross Foundation, a yoga program has been developed that including weekly classes, 3-day retreats and teacher trainings for women cancer survivors.
Based on the principles of OM Yoga, her teaching style is student centered ranging from dynamic vinyasa flow to gentle restorative.
She is certified by OM Yoga Center in New York in 2002 and has studied with Cyndi Lee, Genevieve Kaupler, Judith Lasater and Gerard Arnaud. Tari published an abstract entitled, One-Size-Does-not-Fit-All: Teaching teachers how to teach yoga to breast cancer survivors, and was selected to present it at SYTAR Conference, 2007, sponsored by Intentional Association of Yoga Therapists. Tari is a frequent presenter at Yoga Journal Conferences where her one-day intensives are entitled OM Yoga Women Cancer Survivor Teacher Training.
