Holly Robison

Holly Robison, E-RYT 500, began her yoga journey while pregnant with her third baby in 2002.  She immediately discovered the physical, psychological, and emotional benefits of having a yoga practice.  With over 1000 hours of training and more than 15,000 hours of teaching experience, her classes offer a mix of encouragement, enthusiasm, love, compassion, and humor through the use of asana, pranayama, meditation, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques.                     

As Founder and CEO of Taday Wellness, Inc., Holly’s yoga vision and inspiration expand.  She encourages her students to tap into their natural intuition and notice the subtlest of physical cues while they learn how to customize their yoga practice into one that’s perfect for where their bodies are at in that moment.                      

Holly is a mom to three magical beings (and a grandma to a strong-willed toddler!) who are her greatest teachers.  She loves to continue her learning about all things relating to yoga, Ayurveda, anatomy, herbology, and natural healing.  

Andrew Chaves

Andrew was 19 years old when he took his first yoga class at UC Santa Cruz. It was the physical challenges of a rigorous and highly technical yoga practice that initially appealed to Andrew but, it was yoga’s philosophical concepts (ethics, how to live as a yogi, and how to live in harmony and integrity) and their application to one’s life that were and remain Andrew’s driving interest beyond the physical technique of asana.

Andrew’s goal is to make yoga accessible to all people. He strives to create a safe, healthy atmosphere to explore asana, meditation, and yogic philosophy, making the practice approachable for everyone, of every level and of every walk of life.  He shares this knowledge so that his students can practice safely and mindfully.

Andrew lives in Long Beach, CA with his wife Amanda and their dog Kibeth. When not teaching yoga, he enjoys reading, motorcycling, and gardening.

Deb Padilla

Deb Padilla’s wellness Journey began in 2015 when she was seeking answers to her own personal health issues.  Through her journey of healing and self-discovery, she overcame several health issues, earned certifications in meditation, Integrated Energy Therapy and Health and Wellness, and found her passion for guiding and teaching others how to overcome obstacles and discover their authentic selves.  

One of the most important tools in Deb’s wellness toolbox has been mediation.  She believes quieting the mind can be of benefit to all areas of one’s life.  It does not require a specific age, fitness level, demographic, or spiritual belief… just an open heart and a willingness to learn.  

Deb’s mediation classes incorporate breath work, sound, visualization, and mindfulness techniques.  Her goal is to create a safe space to unwind, detach from our “thinking” brains, and find peace and comfort if only for 30 minutes a day.  Her sessions are designed to provide the tools necessary to create a daily practice that can be utilized throughout her student’s day.

When she is not meditating, Deb is busy raising an extraordinary son and her Pit/Great Dane, Rick.  She enjoys supporting the local grower’s market, walks in nature, and anything related to self-improvement, health, and wellness.
