The moment Izzy and Mason found out the exciting news!!


I’m currently 19 weeks and have so many thoughts and emotions running through my mind. So far this journey has had its ups and downs from fighting extreme fatigue (as to be expected) to testing positive with influenza b, which my friends, is NO JOKE!!

The role of being a mother to an infant again has brought many mixed emotions from: joy, fear, and uncertainty, to how the heck am I going to do this again--all while continuing to run a successful business that requires my physical presence 6 days a week!..............Whew!!!!!!

I’m not going to sugar coat anything here, and be completely honest. The pregnancy experience is not exactly my favorite thing! Don't get me wrong- I love the idea of having another little one around, and know that this is an absolute beautiful miracle! I am very, very grateful!  We have truly been blessed already with two happy and healthy children. Our little man, Mason has brought us more happiness and joy than we could ever imagine!  I also have been blessed with a beautiful, sweet, and kind step daughter Izzy, who loves her family unconditionally!

Being pregnant can be a challenge for me, both physically and mentally.  From gaining weight to going to doctors appointments, where there is so much uncertainty associated with each visit and test- it all brings me anxiety.

Guilt and perfectionism are other things that challenge me in my daily life. While being pregnant, and a mom, these challenges are often amplified.

As a mom you want to give your child the absolute best opportunity you can in this world.  With that said- moms you are not alone! Being both a mom and mom-to-be can be scary!

Please allow yourself to feel that you are amazing and doing an outstanding job!

I have to remind myself of that often and Jake does a great job reminding me of this as well! Ultimately we really have no control of what happens and all we can do is exactly what we are doing.

Be present in our children's lives, educate them, be kind, show them that we care, and most importantly love them unconditionally!

I can honestly tell you my faith becomes even stronger as I rely more on God to trust that all will work out-according to his plan.


I can say without hesitation that we are truly excited and know this is an amazing miracle!  I'm even more excited to share this journey with you!!


Love always,







The first time I tried Pilates, I fell in love!  Prior to then, I had never finished a workout and felt like I truly did something that was not only hard and challenging, but also beneficial to my well being! I could see myself doing it forever!

I chose to teach Pilates because I felt it was a challenging, creative, and meaningful way to help others see their own potential and to reach theirown fitness goals.

I love building relationships with my clients. Having that trust and respect toward one another as student and teacher, learning their talents, celebrating their successes, and watching them build not only strength, but also their confidence, makes this the most rewarding job for me!

"Tara Hall is quite easily one of the greatest motivators I have ever met. She is so obviously a skilled Pilates Instructor, that this would be reason alone to keep coming to her. Her skills go way beyond this. She has such a joyful time instructing her clients that this joy is transmitted at the first lesson to them. She has an uncanny ability to "size up" her clients immediately and tailor their Pilates instruction to what she accurately learns are their goals. Most importantly, however, is her ease and honesty in generating self esteem in her clients. Her clients always feel validated which leads to all of us wanting to return for more, with the common goals of health, fitness, and fun."
