hi. I'm Tatum Fjerstad.
My friends call me T, Tates, Tater-Tot, Toots, T-Money, Weird, Endearing and Purveyor of Tremendous Joy.
Oh, and my last name is pronounced FIERCE-dead (pretty cool, right?).
I love naps, cackling, and being sassy. I blame my lateness on traffic when I just didn't leave on time. I respond aggressively to cat-callers. I struggle with intimacy, resentment, anger and privilege. I love Justin Timberlake and often daydream about our lives together.
I am a human being who just wants to help other human beings be okay with being human.
I do this by teaching something called MOVE > SIT > WRITE, which uses yoga-like stretches, meditation and free-writing to locate, explore and create new space in your body, mind and heart. It's a short practice you can do every day or whenever you need a little pick-me-up. When I started doing it every day in 2014, my whole life changed. I took it on tour in 2016, during a solo, 7,000-mile road trip around the United States.
I don't have all the answers and I probably never will. I just want to be helpful, honest and make you laugh. I've done a lot of cool things like living in New York City for a few years and studying with people like Elena Brower and working for Wanderlust. But none of that really matters. I want to connect with you because it makes sense to you, not because of where I've been.
I teach free or donation-based classes all over Minneapolis because I am a huge fan of accessibility. But, like, who isn't, right?
MOVE > SIT > WRITE
Your Yoga Northeast
Wednesday, August 9 / 6-8pm
After a lengthy hiatus, I've finally relaunched my MOVE > SIT > WRITE workshop and I couldn't be happier to present it at my very favorite Minneapolis studio: Your Yoga. This is an affordable, accessible-to-all weeknight workshop that is designed to help you connect with yourself so you can be better at connecting with others.
In this workshop, you will use movement, meditation and free writing to take a journey from the external to the internal by way of observing your physical, mental and emotional states.
Sign up soon. Space is limited.
