About Me

Tarasa Gardner

Yoga with TG
My name is Tarasa Gardner (TG), and I am a 500 E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) through Yoga Alliance. I provide online and virtual Yoga Concierge services through classes, retreats, courses, and an on-demand monthly membership. I also own, operate, and teach at the You, Yourself, and Yoga studio in Kirksville, Missouri.
I deliver big time yoga with a small town community. My Vinyasa is laid-back and heart forward and gives you the opportunity to explore and deepen your practice and meet yourself on your mat. I am the yogi for “normal,” “regular” people. It’s not about headstands and splits; it’s about being stretched, not stressed.
You will grow stronger and be stretched physically and mentally. You will feel better. I offer diverse yoga classes (slow flow, restorative, prenatal, kids, fitness, power, yin, & chair) for beginners and yogis of all levels, so no matter where you are today, I am ready to be your Personal, Yoga Concierge.
Never done yoga before? That’s my specialty. I didn’t start out very “good at yoga” either. I found yoga after a car accident in hopes of restoring some strength and flexibility in my dominant arm. When I started at home with YouTube videos, I couldn’t hold tabletop position without my arm shaking uncontrollably. I couldn’t hold downdog for a full breath. From there, I am now here. Not only is my arm strong, my mind is so much healthier and happier.
I love helping others start and continue their own yoga journeys. It’s a life-long, day-to-day practice.
