Tamara Allers

Tamara Allers began her journey with yoga in 2007.  Her practice took her to India where she completed her yoga teacher training at Ashiyana Yoga. 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 through intensive studies on medicinal herbs in Costa Rica. Tamara´s training is with Ashtanga Yoga, however her experience has broadened her teaching style to a much more fluid dynamic Vinyasa flow.  Her classes are wonderfully challenging, energizing, and powerful.


Teela Hammell

Teela 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 whisperings 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. In August, she received her 200 hr Yoga RYT.


Alex Lagomontaña

A trilingual nomad and seeker, Alex fell in love when discovering yoga for the first time in Montanita at Casa del Sol in 2010 and she has continued to practice since.  With a history in dance her teaching style takes you through a passionate and joyful practice, leaving you to be present within your being and find the voice that you carry inside. In August she received her 200hr RYT.
Esa nómada buscadora y trilingüe se enamoró perdidamente del yoga cuando lo descubrió por la primera vez acá en Casa del Sol en el 2010 y sigue practicando desde entonces. Con su pasado en baile te lleva a través de una práctica apasionada y alegre, dejandote ser presente a dentro de tu ser y encontrar la voz que llevas a dentro. En Agosto recibió su 200hr RYT.
