Erika Liem Palidar

Erika began teaching in 2007. She teaches us to breathe, sweat, and move with inner grace;  to build strength and power in our core, and to radiate it all out. She is a RYT 200 and was trained by Faith Hunter in Washington, DC. Erika is also a pilates instructor with certifications from PHI Pilates and Balanced Body University, and is a trained Barre teacher. Erika is also an Army wife and a writer. In September 2011, she was published in Yoga Journal. While she was pregnant with her daughter Audrey, Erika appeared in a Yoga Vibes online prenatal yoga video demonstrating how to modify poses during pregnancy. Following Audrey’s birth, Erika trained at Tranquil Space Yoga in Washington, DC to teach baby-and-me and toddler yoga. Erika also taught yoga to the Warrior Transition Unit in Schweinfurt, Germany, her class received rave reviews amongst soldiers and also in the Bavarian Times. A self-described “recovering attorney,” Erika had a 10-year career in litigation, holds a law degree from American University, in Washington, DC, and has a BA from Brown University, in Providence, RI.

Tanner Evans

Tanner is one of our talented students who serves our studio as a Karma Yogi. His love of yoga has led him to many hours of self study and practice. He is currently an apprentice yoga teacher trainee working with our senior instructors to become a yoga teacher. He will attend the Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga Yoga when it starts in January.

Timbrel Moser

Timbrel found yoga at a time in her life when peace was her main goal. As a young mother of one (at the time), she went to her first class at the young age of 18 in a quiet and musky studio tucked in downtown Austin. This was the beginning of a love affair. Eventually, she pursued yoga training in early 2011 earning a 225 hour certification with Brooke Boon, author of Hatha Yoga Illustrated. Less than a year after receiving her certification, she flew through a windshield in a car accident, breaking her back. The doctor said that had her back not been so supple, flying through the air like a rag doll would have certainly killed her. Yoga, quite simply, saved her life that day. She taught in Hawaii before moving to the heart of Texas where she resumed her teaching career. She has since earned another 200 hour certification from Yoga Yoga. Overall, she has accumulated 425 hours of training. She tends toward gentle yoga flows, as her inclination is to maintain and enjoy the peaceful and quiet aspects yoga has to offer. Whether she is teaching privately or publicly, to adults or to children, her desire is to flourish in this environment while helping those around her to flourish. After all, she is just a flower in the mud.

Amanda Montoya

Amanda took her first yoga class for college PE credit and immediately fell in love. She started a regular practice in 2010 and in 2014 completed a 200-HR teaching training program at Practice Yoga in Austin, Texas. Her only goal was to deepen her own personal practice but she soon found herself sharing her passion for yoga with others as a teacher.

Yin yoga is a great influence on Amanda's style and helped her through a journey with Thyroid Cancer. She loves begin able to share this quiet, meditative style with students who can find it useful in dealing with their own lives. 

Amanda's goal in all classes she leads is to combine fun and challenging sequences with moving meditation to create physical and mental flexibility and strength.
