Tamiko is a freelance writer, community journalist, and public historian. She just published her first book, ROSA FRANKLIN: A LIFE IN HEALTH CARE, PUBLIC SERVICE, AND SOCIAL JUSTICE (2019). She started taking classes at Source Yoga 12 years ago, and started her social media/newsletter work for Source Yoga in 2011. Tamiko first thought of yoga as a physical workout, but is happy that it’s become a necessary “mental housecleaning” too. If you have previously taken classes at either of our studios in North Tacoma or University Place, you have probably practiced right alongside Tamiko – and if you follow us on Facebook you’ve probably read many of the heartfelt articles she has shared over the years. We are honored to have Tamiko as part of the Source Yoga Staff.
