Andy Totman, (ERYT 500) first fell in love with yoga in 2005. Since then he has combined his personal yoga practice with his commitment to the Martial Arts. He has been practicing Wushu (KungFu), TiChi and Chi Gong since 2007. With his commitment to excellence, high standards, belief in his students, and great sense of humor, Andy guides his students in a challenging, yet accessible, Vinyasa class. His classes maximizes every minute building the strength needed to reach your goals. He actively works the room providing adjustments, ensuring safety, and proper alignment. His Vinyasa classes include fun transitions, arm balances, handstands, flexibility, and mindful meditation. Andy's teaching makes the seemingly "impossible" possible as you'll leave his classes with a strong body and a clear mind.
Tamara Lafferty-Totman, (ERYT 500) has taught yoga in San Diego County for 18 years. Her style of teaching is lighthearted, versatile and creative. Her background is in Ashtanga Yoga (Trained with Tim Miller of the Ashtanga Yoga Center) and the style she teaches now is Vinyasa yoga level 2/3 and 3/4 (a vinyasa class that includes arm balances and handstands). Tamara’s classes are a great fusion of powerful Vinyasa with an entrancing mix of contemporary music. Her classes are physically challenging; however, proper alignment, modifications and plenty of hands-on adjustments are essential in her classes. The focal point is exclusively on alignment, movement with breath, core, strength and balance.... and of course a sense of humor!
