Why I Teach - Tasha Rein

After practicing for almost fifteen years and teaching for almost eight, Tasha loves that she gets to help people through her work. 

“I teach because I want to be a force for good in people’s lives,” she says. “It’s amazing to see people come in and they’re stressed out and their energy is a little chaotic or frenetic and I see them settle down and they leave feeling so good. It never doesn’t work.”

Tasha credits her early teachers in Boston, Mimi and David, as among her biggest influences. Mimi, the owner of O2 Yoga, trained Tasha and helped illustrate the importance of creativity in sequencing. “She’s the most creative teacher I’ve ever met in my life. She’s so effervescent and light and uses creative sequencing so students don’t always know what the next pose is going to be.”

David Magone helped challenge Tasha with unique variations for poses, always keeping her on her toes. “There was always something new in both of their classes and even though I took them religiously for 5-6 years, I never got bored.”

Tasha aims to thoughtfully sequence each class and encourages her students to push their limits all while remaining safe in their practice and joyful in the effort.
