    Tara was born in Holland. In 1991, she became a certified rebirther in Haarlem and in 1995, she finished an intensive four-year massage training learning classical massage, rebalancing, and Shiatsu.

Tucked away from the busier areas of Goa, the northern part of Goan paradise offers beautiful quiet beaches whilst being only a 20 minute stroll away from the more upbeat vibe of Arambol - famous for its brilliant live music.

You will enjoy many delicious dishes in an open restaurant with a view over the ocean. Usually a mixture of Ayurveda based food is served, inspired from various regions of India and made into the tastiest of traditional vegetarian dishes. If you love sea food then there is also a wide variety of fresh fish.

The food is regarded as medicine, also the juices are prepared with much love for your wellbeing.

    CONS Cons: More variety in food would be helpful. More 'get to know you' activities at the beginning with the group.

    PROS Pros: The facilitators were excellent, warm, welcoming, knowledgeable. The mix of activities with the yoga was great.

    "Wisdom of Horses Yoga Retreat with Tara and Kim, who are such generous and authentic people, was one of the most life-changing experiences for me. Located in a beautiful Spanish village surrounded by mountains, astonishing views and pleasant climate made the perfect place for yoga retreat. Creative, delicious daily meals full of healthy local ingredients and 'live food' was the great opportunity to heal my body. On the other hand, yoga classes were just on the right level for everyone from beginners to more advanced, and combined with meditation gave a wonderful start to a new day leaving you feeling relaxed and energized at the same time. But the real highlight of this retreat were sessions with Kim and her horses. The beautiful bond between Kim and horses was easily seen and for me she brought the human – horse relationship to a different level. I was able to learn a lot about myself through interaction with horses and see many thing from a different perspective. Being surrounded by like-minded people gave me new strength on my life journey. I would recommend this retreat to anyone with all my heart!" website, edited

    "Every morning I was delighted by a beautiful breakfast table with a delicious smoothie and many other goodies. All of the food were made with so much love and creativity and tasted very good. You both brought a lot of humor, joy and warmth to this week. The yoga sessions where never boring, always different, relaxing and I learned a lot from them. The time with the horses were also very special for me, especially when we made the beautiful walk along the river. Thank you both for an amazing week, I went back home fully charged again!"

    "Dearest Tara. Thank you, we had the best 10 days I have experienced in a long time. I still have peace in my heart and a calm and clear mind and hope I will be able to hold on to that feeling and the memory of a wonderful time with you, the place and people."

  • Review by Simone Freitag from Germany

    "Dear Tara, thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing retreat. I enjoyed the food, the yoga and the people. Raw food has not been a major focus until now, but Sam, Pam and Amanda are the magicians in the kitchen. I enjoyed every bit of food that was on our plates - nourishing me so greatly. I am very keen on continuing a big part of it and I'm really inspired by the variety of the raw food. The yoga practice was kind, gentle and very self-focusing. I was just at the right place, at the right time. And I am more than grateful for this experience. I learned a lot about myself, and I am happy to continue my journey towards a self-aware and self-conscious life. When it comes to the people, it is super how we all connect together in just one retreat. I found it the most wonderful collection of people I can imagine. We shared and laughed so much. Even younger and older women connecting so greatly is not easy, but we made it a truly memorable experience and we will keep this in our hearts forever. Thank you so much for providing this time and space. Your effort is truly remarkable. Love and peace, Simone."

    "It has been such a great retreat in Spain (September 2014) with an amazing yogateacher (Tara) and divine raw food. I can recommend this to anyone who loves to be nurtured with healthy raw food, wants to live a healthy-back-to-nature life style and wants to have some great fun! I'll be back."

    "There I was, the absolute beginner, who had never done yoga or meditation! I found this place, your lessons, the pool, the amazing food, the people, the birds, the flowers, the sun and the full moon absolutely amazing. It is an experience I will not forget quickly. Thank you for your guidance and love, and I hope that you have a great party for your 50th birthday. "

    "It was a great week, I really enjoyed it, especially your way of teaching, very easy to follow even for an almost beginner, like me. You have a very nice flow, and the way you talk us through all the moves made it easy to get a lot of benefit from the yoga."

  • Review by Denice from Germany

    "The rawfood was a big surprise, I thought it would be a whole lot of salad and hunger. However, I felt no hunger, the food was very variated and much more prepared than expected. It always looked and tasted fantastic."

  • Review by Lotte from Denmark

    "To sum it up, I came for the rawfood experience, but it was the yoga that will bring me back to a future yoga retreat. You, Tara, really made me feel why yoga is good for the body and essential for the mind, and I loved the morning silence. Back in Denmark, I try my very best to remember the yoga and take time to do some every day. I'm looking for some yoga group in my area to join in. And hopefully I will join you some time in the future, somewhere in the world, perhaps in Spain. Being in the mountains in that beautiful garden, was a big plus. Take care!"
