Tara McCoy

Tara McCoy is a Certified Health Coach through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is also a certified yoga teacher, and writer. She has had the joy of coaching thousands of people in clinical settings such as Iora Health and Sherpaa Health in New York City. In addition to her nutrition and lifestyle expertise, she has studied herbalism, mindfulness, and yoga.

Her approach to wellness encompasses mind, body, and spirit. Her definition of health and well-being is expansive, including not just how you eat, move and sleep but also the quality of your relationships, your sense of purpose and higher meaning in your life.

She loves accompanying her clients on their health journeys and to see them transform their lives by building new habits and routines. She is an avid reader and researcher and has tools to match any problem her client throws her way.

Previous to her coaching career, she worked at the Mayo Clinic researching psychosocial health and mindfulness-based stress reduction approaches for transplant patients and caregivers. She is also a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and frequently writes about wellness-related topics on her blog.
In her free time, Tara enjoys exploring the natural beauty surrounding her mountain home in Idaho, honing her cooking skills, and curling up with a good book.

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Stacey offers private at-home Zoom pilates sessions, allowing you to have a consistent practice from any location.

Her sessions are tailored to your fitness goals and unique physical needs (we all have them). She helps clients to develop an awareness and knowledge of their own bodies and to move more efficiently. She is equally inspired to help you work through injuries and/or maintain wellness. She works with individuals from a wide range of ages and experience levels to feel more empowered in their own bodies.

Working with Stacey will challenge you to build healthy alignment and strength from your inside (core) out. Combining pilates mat exercises and the use of props, you will learn to build balanced strength to promote better movement both on and off the mat. With consistent practice, the tools learned in class will:

  • aid in injury prevention
  • promote better posture
  • maintain strength & mobility as we age
  • make you feel good, physically & mentally

If you enjoy movement and want to fine-tune your body mechanics and mind-body awareness, you will benefit from working with Stacey.
