Tara Purnell is a Washington, DC-native, brought to Brooklyn by magic and good fortune. She took her first yoga class as a student at University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business and fell in love. For years, yoga practice and transcendental mediation grounded her work as a multimedia producer and grantwriter for marginalized youth, arts, education and wellness. Steadfast in 2013 with a compassionate spirit and a zest for life, she set her mind to celebrating wellness and mindfully meditative arts –empowering people to feel better in their bodies and express their humanity.
Soon after, Tara became a certified yoga teacher and joined a few brilliant friends to introduce a deliciously hydrating, cold-pressed watermelon beverage to the market. WTRMLN WTR is now sold at Whole Foods Market, Target, Kroger and Safeway locations nationwide. Tara continues to develop brand partnerships and boldly represent the WTRMLN WTR tribe in new markets.
Her latest venture is Blind Seed, a creative organization curating intimate experiences designed to cultivate clarity and build positive momentum. Through collective-care, meditative movement, and socially conscious education; Blind Seed gatherings give city-dwellers permission to slow down, feel well, centered and connected.
Tara lives in Brooklyn, New York and frequently sings love songs to herself.
