Instructors

Tamara Allers
Authentic Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 (Yoga)
Tamara Allers is a E-RYT 500 & a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. She began her journey with yoga in 2009 certifying as a teacher in India. In 2011, in search of a simpler life, she moved to the coast of Ecuador and embarked on the journey of Yoga Montanita. The foundation of her practice is rooted in Astanga, however after years of experience as a teacher and student, her teaching style has broadened to a more fluid dynamic Vinyasa flow. Moving deeper in the practice of yoga, she uses the 8 Limbs to create wonderfully challenging, energizing and powerful classes for both the body and mind!
Cheryl Oliver
Cheryl Oliver, E-RYT500, has been teaching Sanskrit, vedic chant and yoga philosophy since 2004, and yoga asana since 1998. Our practice, teaching and philosophy is based on presenting students with direct experiences of yoga. We both honor and refresh the traditions of the astanga vinyasa system, making the practice applicable and accessible all. We encourage students to read, to contemplate, to question. We encourage students to experience a variety of practices to challenge our preconceptions, to refine our physical practice, to expand our minds, and to open our hearts.
