Tara Karch.

Director of Coaching Services

A Nationally Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher and a former classroom teacher of 14 years, Tara was chosen as Teacher of the Year at each of the two schools where she taught, and also served on the Social Emotional Learning Leadership Team. Tara taught at the elementary school level with a passion for her students’ mental and emotional well-being. That passion grew to include a desire to support her colleagues’ mental and emotional well-being and ultimately led her to leave the classroom and join the team at Robin.

Recognizing that sticker charts and reward systems weren’t effectively addressing the student challenges of rising levels of anxiety and decreasing levels of focus and attention to task that Tara observed in the classroom, she chose a different route to support her students’ well-being and academic progress: she completed Mindful Yoga Teacher Training with the sole intention of bringing her learning in the area of mindfulness into her classroom. The results were nothing short of transformative. While still in the classroom, Tara continued her studies with yoga training to support neurologically diverse students, her colleagues, and the entire school community with Mind-Body Wellness and SEL Facilitator training during the pandemic.

As Director of Coaching at Robin, Tara utilizes her yoga teacher knowledge of the mind-body connection and her coach skillset to build coaching content and facilitate the training program for Robin coaches in order to shape delivery of expert content to align with community goals.
