Tara Matthews, L.Ac has been in active healing practices for fifteen years. She has been an avid proponent of self-healing practices for decades. This gifted her with a broad perspective that invited further study of the human journey, resulting in a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and a love of healing practices ranging from nutrition to energy medicine to yoga. During her undergrad and graduate years at University of California Santa Barbara, she worked as a yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner, and personal fitness trainer in Montecito, CA and opened a health food store while studying for her state medical boards.
After completing the Modern Day Priestess® Training in 2008, she continued to study with IMW, becoming a Certified Wisdom Practitioner® and Body Temple/Yoga Director in 2014. As an accredited KRI Kundalini Level 2 Teacher who is also trained in Hatha and Gong Healing practices, Tara created the KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Program for the Institute in 2013.
Tara is a licensed, full-time Acupuncturist and Chinese Medical Practitioner and brings a rich meditation and yoga lineage anchored in almost 20 years of practice. She regularly teaches yoga, workshops and tele-courses, online Seasonal Cleanse Journeys, facilitates Mystic Circles®, and sees clients in Southern California and beyond. As founder of Attunity Wholeness, she aspires to inspire others to create a sustained weaving of practical awareness that comes with a daily practice of meditation, yoga, seasonal awareness, and self-care. As a wife and mother, she understands the challenges and rewards this YES can bring and utilizes her gifts to help others see the beauty, meaningfulness, and wholeness present as their life experience.
