Tamara Allers

Tamara Allers began her journey with yoga in 2009.  Her practice took her to India where she completed her first yoga teacher training at Ashiyana Yoga in Goa. From there she traveled India exploring Mysore and ashrams in the south of India, taking her practice deeper into her body, mind, soul, and life experience.  Her body consciousness was further expanded on through her schooling in Holistic Nutrition in Canada and completing her 500 RYTT.  The foundation of her practice is rooted in Ashtanga, however after 7 years of experience both as a teacher and student, her teaching style has been broadened to a much more fluid dynamic Vinyasa flow.  Her classes are wonderfully challenging, energizing, and powerful.

Teela Hammell

Teela, 200hr RYT came to yoga seeking a stronger connection to her body, and her heart. She’d spent years in an academic/head-centered setting; yoga helped her remember how to hear the more subtle whispering of her flesh and spirit. She has a background in psychology, crisis counseling, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Her classes incorporate healing aspects of each of these modalities. Through a blend of flow yoga and trauma-releasing techniques, her instruction aims to promote unification between heart, mind, and body, in an effort to feel whole, alive, and ultimately, free.

Michelle Hurley

Michelle is a world wanderer using yoga to keep herself grounded and present. As a 200 hour RYT and epitome of the pitta dosha, she shares her transformational energy by guiding students through mindful vinyasa ebb and flow with bursts of fiery movements. Currently living and teaching on the coast of Ecuador much inspiration draws from her love of the ocean, sunshine, and of course Montanita surfing.

She Cevallos

She, es una profesora de Yoga Certificada en el 2015. De raza mestiza Ecuatoriana, cultiva los saberes ancestrales de su pueblo y hace del yoga una ayuda para crear la conexión del cuerpo con la naturaleza. Comenzó su practica hace algunos años atrás como alternativa curativa para la mente, cuerpo y alma.  Surfista, hace de las practicas de surf y yoga su modo de vida, un modo de adoración a la naturaleza, trabajando para mejorar la forma física, la respiración, la flexibilidad, la unidad. Se ayuda de los conocimientos que puede dar el yoga y el surf,  como sensaciones de vivir el momento, enfrentar miedos, meditar, fluir, ser espontáneo, olvidarse de las expectativas para finalmente sentirse libre, y emplea ese conocimiento en sus clases. Poniendo en evidencia de lo capaces que somos y de cuanta fuerza podemos cultivar.
