Tama Soble began practising yoga with Esther Myers and Monica Voss in 1984, and is a graduate of the Esther Myers Yoga Studio Teacher Training Programme. She has had additional training with Donna Farhi, Judith Hanson Lasater, Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen, Thich Nhat Hanh and Edward Espe Brown. She earned an interdisciplinary BFA in dance and theatre from York University, and has trained in Body-Mind Centering, contact improvisation and various other movement techniques. As a professional dancer and choreographer, Tama had the opportunity to tour and teach across Canada, in the United States, in Mexico and New Zealand. She has taught yoga to children, teens, adults, students with cancer, students with anxiety disorders, and individuals with special needs in classes and privately.
Her background in movement is a rich source of inspiration for her teaching. She finds the interplay between imagery, breath and the physical experience of the asanas particularly powerful in deepening the mind/body connection. Tama teaches classes, teacher training, and advanced teachers’ seminars, and offers retreats and workshops in Ontario, British Columbia, the US, Costa Rica and Italy. She co-owns and directs Esther Myers Yoga Studio and its 750-hour Teacher Training Programme and 250-hour Graduate Teachers’ Programme with Monica Voss.
