Everyone is capable of personal growth & transformation.  It's why we came here

Erik Blender & Ashley Collins created OmTara from a passion for connecting people with practices that transform mind, body & spirit.  The music of OmTara comes from a place of meditation and divine connection, and it is from this humble place that OmTara offers yoga, meditation & retreats.  Erik is a certified Kundalini Yoga & Meditation teacher (IKYTA 200) as well as a teacher in the area of Trauma-Sensitive Yoga certified with Warriors at Ease.  He teaches regularly at Mandala Yoga in SE Portland, OR as well as at Breitenbush Hot Springs in central Oregon. 

Ashley is a Counselor, Life Coach and Meditation Guide who has worked with alternative healing and integration methods for the past eight years.  She is trained in Hakomi Methodology through the M.E.T.A Hakomi Institute of Oregon and a certified Life Coach through the World Coach Institute.

Together, Erik & Ashley lead Meditation & Sound Healing at Breitenbush Hot Springs and at retreats throughout the Pacific NW.
