Tamara Kinoshita moved from the Los Angeles area to Las Vegas in 2003 and that's when her love of yoga began. She had always been active and drawn to fitness and health but when she began practicing yoga at a gym she noticed that the benefits went far beyond the physical. She just felt like "herself" and knew that yoga needed to a part of her lifestyle, not just an exercise. Tamara completed the 200-hours yoga teacher training certification in 2009 and 510-hours Pilates teacher training in 2010 at Ki-Atsu Institute for Healing Arts and has been teaching in the Las Vegas Valley ever since. She's taught at studios, gyms, schools, for private clients, and community events. In addition to being an E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance, Tamara is also a licensed PE, Health, and Biology teacher at a local charter school and is grateful for the opportunity to share her passions for yoga, mindfulness, and science with middle and high school students every day. One amazing yoga teacher was all it took to open up her life to new possibilities, and she hopes that by using her gift to teach she can do the same for others.
