Meet Our DIRECTORS
MSW, M.Ed. RYT 500
We're a dance and yoga studio offering classes and workshops in yoga, bellydance, healing arts and more. Our studio features the area's only Healing Yoga Program, designed and directed by Tara Phillips, a licensed MSW and 500hr RYT.
Stacey Nolan and Tara Phillips met in 2005, while attending an educational Master's program. Tara was leaving the field of Social Work for Education, and Stacey had a background in Marketing. After realizing they went to the same high school, the two became fast friends. Stacey was a new Bellydance instructor at the time, and Tara an avid practitioner of yoga. They both taught in the public school system for several years before having their children. By the end of 2012, the two had left their teaching positions and Tara was just finishing up her 200 hour Yoga Certification. Stacey had been teaching bellydance for several years and had an established student troupe, of which Tara was a part. So one evening after dance class, the idea of opening a studio together came up. Stacey had wanted to for years, and Tara thought yoga and bellydance were a perfect match! So they joined forces and set out to find a space. Little did they know, they would come upon the perfect place in the heart of Red Bank just a couple weeks later. Too good to pass up, they signed a lease immediately and started renovating! And renovating! And MORE renovating, with the help and skills of Tara's father. It took an entire month to transform an old, musty, outdated, 50 year old storefront into a peaceful, welcoming movement studio. But the work wasn't over yet! Only 3 months after their grand opening, a deluge of rain brought in flood waters, ruining their brand new floors! And after a two-week closing, they were able to open their doors once more to offer movement classes to the community. And now going into their fifth year in business, the pair are still dedicated to creating a welcoming space to everyone that walks through their doors.
