our story

Euphoria is a feeling of extraordinary happiness and excitement. The way we felt when we met, fell in love, and began our journey together as husband and wife. When we welcomed our little Pasha into the world, he brought so much joy into our lives, we wanted to find a way to spend more time together to create those magical moments and memories, everyday.


Having a passion for teaching children and adults alike in our careers as professional yoga and tennis instructors, we began to follow a new dream to open Vancouver's first family yoga studio for all ages, so that we could share that indescribable feeling, with you.





Tara holds a Bachelor of Health Sciences from Simon Fraser University. She discovered her passion for yoga while working with children from infant, toddler to after school care with school aged children. That led her to earn her Early Childhood Education Certification, 200 hour yoga teacher certification, and additional credentials in prenatal, baby and me,  kids and family yoga. She was inspired to learn more about the pregnancy and postpartum journey during her pregnancy.


At Uphoria Yoga, she is combining her academic expertise with her love of mindful movement in order to create a positive impact on kids' health and wellness. Her classes are welcoming and bring an uplifting music, laughter through dance and storytelling and end with relaxation and fun breathwork. 


Tara’s mission is to inspire each of her students to cultivate confidence, creativity and self-love. Off the mat, you can find her immersing herself in nature and spending quality time with her husband, Shayan and her toddler, Pasha.




A former top junior tennis player in BC, Shayan began his tennis career at age 12 at the West Vancouver Tennis Club. A passionate player, he went on to compete at both provincial and national levels. Shayan graduated in 2008 from Cumberland University in Nashville, Tennessee with a full tennis scholarship and a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and Marketing.


From 2001 to 2017, his family owned an indoor tennis facility called People’s Courts in Coquitlam BC, for which he was a director and a high performance coach for players of all ages. For over a decade, People's Courts Tennis Club was recognized by ""Tennis Canada"" as Tennis Development Centre. Throughout the years, People's Courts Tennis programs became one of the most successful in Canada, 

Shayan believes that a nurturing educational environment can help individuals to grow their inner happiness and become the best versions of themselves.
