Talia Sutra: The Tel Aviv-Based Yoga Teacher Taking Instagram by Storm
Talia Peretz Baderman — better known as Talia Sutra in the world of yoga — was introduced to yoga by her mother, who used the practice to battle and ultimately heal from lymphoma.
Today, Talia teachers locally and globally, including in the USA, Europe, and Asia.
Talia started developing her own practice when she was in her early 20s, and began her career at Yoga to the People in New York, where she managed one of the studios and taught five classes per day.
In 2012, Talia was crowned the Bikram Yoga champion in New York, after her mentor, friend, and teacher Jared McCann (a two-time world champion) recommended she participate in the competition.
That same year, Talia’s brother encouraged her to create an Instagram account, which became one of the first such accounts dedicated to yoga.
The name Talia Sutra “just kind of came to me. I loved the way it felt in my body. It’s inspiring to me. It was a rebirth of me as a yoga teacher. That word helped changed my life. It set a new path for me, free from of associations, and opened new doors for me.”
A sutra is an observation that contains a general truth, which is also fitting, because Talia writes a lot of sutras, including her marquee one:Love and all is coming.
“I like taking things that are complicated and simplifying them,” Talia says, “and using technology to spread messages that come from within me. It’s an incredible feeling. I’m really grateful for it.”
