Tara Chapman was six when she started attending her mother's yoga classes for children. The following year, the family moved to London and Tara began regular Alexander Technique lessons at the school where her mother was training. At 18, Tara started her three-year Alexander Technique teacher training in Sydney, then worked as an assistant to Karyn in all her yoga classes, private lessons and workshops.

In 1997, Tara started her IYTA teacher training course, and set up her own yoga classes in 1998.

She has also spent time working with actors in the AT at various Sydney drama schools. Since moving to Brisbane, Tara has taught drama students at QUT and music students at the Con. She now lives and teaches in the Gold Coast area.

Karyn and Tara are now applying their knowledge and expertise at The Back School in Brisbane. They offer individual lessons in the AT, plus introductory workshops for the public, and small-group classes in yoga.
