A balanced class inviting you to experience the active and the receptive. Shake off your day with inspired movement, and then unravel deep layers of tension in connective tissue. A great choice for yogis who want to move and restore in a single practice



Marjorie Ames

Marjorie Ames began practicing yoga while working on Capitol Hill in 1989. A career diplomat, she’s brought her yoga practice with her and benefitted from the experience of many extraordinary teachers during her assignments abroad. Yet her true yoga home is at Sun & Moon Yoga Studio, where she has found a supportive and welcoming community of inspiring teachers and fellow students. Marjorie participated in Sun & Moon’s 2016-17 Foundations In-Depth Teacher Training Program and received her 200-hour certification in 2019. She is currently completing Sun and Moon's 300-hour Dharma program. She is an accredited teacher of Yoga For Healthy Aging, having completed the training in that specialization offered by Baxter Bell, MD, 500-ERYT and Melina Meza, B.S.N., 500-ERYT in August 2020. Marjorie is also a student and practitioner of Reiki, and received her Second Degree certification in the Usui System of Natural Healing (Usui Shiki Ryoho) in November 2017. Her teaching is informed by an interest in the interplay between movement, breath, and the energetic level of experience. She believes passionately that yoga is for every body and encourages students to listen to their own wisdom, and focus – in yoga and in life – on experiencing what is happening as it is happening.

Tara Bishop

Tara began her Yoga journey with a 12 week intro to Yoga Class that was a gift from her husband, John, after they had their son John Robert, in 1996. In 2014 Tara came across an introduction to Meditation weekend at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA, while she was in the area for work. After an amazing weekend learning how to mediate, the signs came out on Sunday morning to consider becoming a teacher as a way to deepen your practice, and her joyful path began to unfold. Over the next four years she became a teacher in Mediation, Yoga and Ayurveda at the Chopra Center, and in 2016 began a community class in DC.  Tara also teaches for the nonprofit where she serves as Deputy Chief Executive. She loves sharing the teachings and experiences of Yoga to all of the communities she serves.

Tara’s classes are grounded in the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga and the union of body, mind and spirt.  The breath is the bridge between the mind and the body and together we will come back to our natural state of balance. Tara is part of the 2022 – 2024 300 Hour Dharma Program at Sun & Moon and is grateful to be a part of this community. Tara looks forward to seeing you in class! 

Christine Clardy

Christine’s classes emphasize healthy, individualized physical alignment and breath awareness, as well as finding balance between effort and ease. Throughout the practice, personal inquiry and internal listening remain key. Yoga becomes an ongoing cultivation of “skill in action” as it helps unify the body, mind and heart. Classes for families, kids or teens also explore classic asana and yoga wisdom, adding age-appropriate games, teamwork exercises, and relaxation to the experience. In addition to having taught middle and high school English, group yoga in a school setting, and mindfulness workshops for kids ages 5-8, Chris is trained in Love Your Brain Yoga, Move with Me Yoga Adventures, and most recently as Family Peer Recovery Specialist through the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority. She is certified with the Veterans’ Yoga Project. Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield’s The Power of Awareness informs her teaching of meditation, as does her 2022 course certification through Gary Kraftsow's Meditation Unlocked. She has an M.A. in American Literature and an M.A. in Religious Studies and became a RYT200 through Sun and Moon in 2018. Chris came to yoga in 1995 as a young and busy professional, having no interest in its traditions or techniques. She simply liked feeling relaxed! Over time, however, yoga has become different things, seemingly able to morph into whatever she needs whenever she needs it. Today, she still likes feeling relaxed—but also eagerly explores the vast system of traditions and techniques that she once overlooked.
