Tamara Stackpoole, RYT
Inherent Alchemy since 1986,
Qi Gong since 2003,
Yoga since 2005
Tamara has taught in Chicago, NYC, LosAngeles, NorCal, Florida, Detroit, NC, Taos, NM, and MO privately, and through classes, workshops and retreats, as well as internationally over the internet.
Stackpoole is an actress and former skydiver from the outskirts of Detroit, MI. She's been skating since she could walk and grew up water skiing, knee boarding, riding BMX bikes through the Honda Hills and driving jet skis, power boats and governor-free go-carts, and was classically trained in dance and choreography for 18 years. She’s been meditating since early childhood and has received warnings and trainings through dreams since she can remember. Her wide range of experiences and practices inform the others.
In early childhood she began receiving, practicing, utilizing and teaching Intuitively-granted life-force-energy work, now referred to as Inherent Alchemy. In 2003 she began practicing Qi Gong, finding it highly complimentary to her intuitive practice and applications. Eventually she trained in China in Qi Gong, Taiji and Kung Fu under Master Hu and 31st generation Shaolin Monks at Kun Yu Shan Academy of Martial Arts, Shandong Province.
Tamara began practicing yoga in ’05 and fell in love with the cathartic and deeply rooting & opening actions of the Yin form, and in ’09 received her Yoga Teaching Certification from Asheville Yoga Center in NC.
While her personal ways move more Taoist in nature, throughout the journey she’s gained experience in, and greatly values traditional meditation techniques from various sects of Buddhism, such as Tonglan, Vipassana and Zazen.
In 2010-’11, in attempts to heal herself of a life-threatening illness she went for her Masters Degree in Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine at Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine in Gainesville, FL. When she became less well during that attempt, she took leave, turning both inward and out to nature, eventually finding total resolution through 3 years of hermitage, free of electricity, sequestered to Inherent Alchemy, Qi Gong and Yoga practice deep in nature. Prior to this experience she has used the various modalities to heal of a 14 year bout with hyper-hypoglycemia (a form of diabetes) and a couple broken vertebrae without meds, surgery or pain killers.
Each of Tamara’s practices and crafts, challenges and successes inform the others. She derives great inspiration from experiencing people in their full expression and LOVES passing on these powerful and practical, True-Whole-Self-Nature empowering and interconnecting tools.
