ABOUT TARI

Tari is a high level standing acrobat, hand balancer, intimacy and relationships coach, podcast host and intimate acrobatics specialist.

No stranger to movement, he’s extremely passionate about everything the body can do.  What makes him stand out however is his ability to base and fly each skill in his repertoire, which gives him a rare ability to offer extremely detailed and technical coaching.  

He is one of the few people who can handstand on almost any surface and on anyone… elegantly.

Tari has trained and performed intensely under masters in each of their fields and specializes in hand to hand acrobatics. Please scroll down to see the full CV.

As a world traveler he is constantly involved in bringing acrobatics to different parts of the world through television appearances, stunning photo shoots, workshops and private coaching.

MY SECRET

Part of my unique skillset lies in my ability to accurately demonstrate nearly every skill I can share with you, whether it’s basing, flying or spotting.

I invite you to feel safely express yourself, try new things with me and grow at an unprecedented rate with your partner.  Deep connection is what it’s all about. 

My coaching style is calm, playful, succinct and my communication is soothing and inviting.

 

After expressing some interest in couples/AcroYoga, my girlfriend surprised me for my birthday with 2 Acro sessions with Tari.  Tari’s calming energy is evident the moment you meet him and throughout his studio/space.  He put us both at ease and demonstrated his ability to assess us physically and provide introduction to new poses and instruction on how to take what we have and make it work.  This way when we were done, we felt like we’d achieved more than “just getting through a new class”.  We left knowing we were on to something exciting.  

The second class was equally satisfying.  So much so, that we went back to the hotel to practice what we’d learned.  We found the practice during the week to be very satisfying on many levels.  We set up two more classes the following weekend, which concluded yesterday.  The weekend did not disappoint.  We’ve learned enough to know we have a great deal to work on and learn, which is the beginning of a great practice.

As a physical therapist for nearly 3 decades, I was not only impressed by his command of his understanding of the body and the nuances of breaking down movements, but also walked away with some effective new ways to work on people when the right situation presents itself.

Lastly, Tari’s Tari clearly lives what he teaches.  He’s a world class athlete and instructor who embodies the rare combination of grace and excellence in both practice and instruction.  Spend some time with him…you’ll be better for it.
