tara becker

 pilates instructor / redcord active / yoga teacher


Tara discovered Pilates in the early 2000s while studying at Syracuse University. Having undergone three reconstructive foot surgeries as a teenager, she was impressed with the way Pilates safely strengthened her whole body while helping her feet. After graduation, Tara moved back to the D.C. area to attend law school.  Law didn't end up being the right fit, so she decided to help others by sharing the gift of Pilates. Tara began teaching Pilates mat classes in 2012 and completed her comprehensive apparatus training through Power Pilates in the summer of 2016. Ever the student, she still takes weekly lessons with senior instructors, and has attended continuing education workshops with Andrea Maida, Benjamin Degenhardt, and Bob Liekens, among others. Tara loves helping her clients find that "aha!" moment in Pilates, whether they are recovering from serious injuries or looking to improve their athletic performance. Also an avid yogi, Tara is completing her 200hr vinyasa yoga certification through Tranquil Space in the winter of 2018. When she's not teaching or taking classes, Tara is most likely traveling around the country (and the world) to follow her favorite band. She is very excited and humbled to join the accomplished - and fun! - teaching team at kinesis, and can't wait to work with you!
