Our goal is to provide an authentic Yoga Center for the community in order to make the
many benefits of yoga practice more accessible to people in this area.
Our focus is to create an environment which is peaceful, welcoming and safe, where
people with varying yoga experience and physical ability can develop greater awareness
about the state of their bodies and the quality of their minds, while recharging their spirits.
We, at Inner Light Yoga Center, believe that Yoga is much more than a physical practice;
it is also a way of living with mindfulness and awareness. We are committed to making a
positive impact on the lives of others in our community and around the world, and to treat
our environment with the respect it deserves. Therefore, we will, at times donate a
percentage of our profits to programs and charities that empower people and protect the
environment. In addition, whenever possible, we will purchase goods for use at the center
and for resale that are environmentally and socially responsible, promoting fair trade and
fair compensation for artisans.
Our Yoga Styles...
All of the teachers at Inner Light Yoga Center are fully trained and Certified Yoga
Teachers. The styles of yoga we offer include the core principles as a foundation: Hatha
yoga postures (asanas), breathing practice (pranayama), linking movement with breath,
respecting your body's current physical state and working at your individual level, quieting
and focusing the mind (meditation), and rejuvenating the body after practice in deep
relaxation (savasana). Inner reflection and a graceful flow of postures with the breath
(vinyasa) are emphasized. The structure of each class style varies by each teacher's
training and experience. We invite you to try all of our styles!
Tarra Piparo Madore DC, E-RYT 500 (200 and 500)
Director, Anusara-Inspired Teacher, IAYT Member. HITA Member
While studying philosophy in high school, Tarra became intrigued by Eastern thought, the
concept of living in harmony with nature and the power of the human mind. She pursued
her interests at Rider University and graduated in 1994 with a BA in Psychology and
minors in Philosophy and Social Work.
Tarra’s path to becoming a psychologist was changed when she began receiving
chiropractic adjustments and discovered the amazing alignment and harmony she felt in
her body. Her desire to share this with others and to help people without the use of
medication led her to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa from 1996 to 1999. It
was there that a friend introduced Tarra to yoga because it fit well with both her beliefs
and her pursuit of natural health. She began to practice extensively at a nearby yoga
studio in the Iyengar tradition.
Upon returning to New Jersey, Tarra opened the NJ Wellness Center. She continued to
practice various yoga styles and completed a three year certification in Prenatal and
Pediatric Chiropractic through the Palmer Institute for Professional Advancement. As her
love for yoga grew, Tarra developed a desire to teach it. She completed the Yoga
Teacher Training program in Hatha Yoga at Freehold Yoga Center, a Yoga Alliance
registered training program. This program emphasizes the strong traditional lineage of
yoga brought over from India by followers of Master Sivananda. Advancing her study of
the yoga traditions, she has completed her 500 training at the prestigious Himalayan
Institute. The Himalayan Institute is deeply influenced by the Himalayan Masters including
world renowned Swami Rama.
Tarra moved on to study Anusara yoga. Anusara yoga is a hatha yoga system that unites
universal principles of alignment with a non-dual tantric philosophy that is epitomized by a
"celebration of the heart." She is trained with senior certified Anusara teachers Naime
Jezzeny and Sue Elkind. Tarra has completed all 3 Anusara Immersions and the Anusara
Level 1 Teacher Training. She completed the Anusara Yoga Level 2 Teacher Training
with Amy Ippoliti and Ross Rayburn. She continues to study with her teachers. She has
studied with John Friend on the Melt Your Heart, Blow Your Mind tour and Dancing with
the Divine tour! Tarra is an Anusara-Inspired Teacher.
Tarra brings a wealth of knowledge to her yoga classes and teaches a blend of styles
from which she has practiced with an emphasis on balance and alignment. Tarra brings
her extensive knowledge about the human anatomy and physiology, as well as, the
deeper study of philosophy to all her classes. She allows students to fully experience yoga
in its true tradition.
