Amanda Boerboom

For years I was curious about yoga, but I always had a really good excuse why I couldn’t give it a try…time, money, fear. Did I mention time? For a long while I had been feeling a little lost and a lot drained from trying to keep up with a full time teaching career, my three children under the age of 5 and in general. I was so over being in survival mode. I longed for balance, presence and purpose. I ached for an authentic, wholehearted life and I wondered if yoga just might be the way to get there. Finally the day came when there were no more excuses. The moment I walked into my first yoga class and stepped on my mat, my life was forever changed. I felt like I had come home. I discovered a safe place I could go. I didn’t have to be anything other than myself or do anything other than show up. That was enough. I was enough. After that day I never looked back. I immediately committed to a regular practice and over time my practice taught me countless lessons. It taught me how to be still, to breathe and to be present. My practice taught me how to play, to take risks and to find strength in vulnerability. And maybe most importantly, my practice taught me how to remember who I am and that I can always begin again when I forget. After nearly three years and much consideration, I was ready to commit to deepening my yoga practice further by learning how to share it with others. Now as a yoga teacher, I am humbled and honored to offer a loving, authentic, wholehearted space for my students to practice doing what I first did: Show up just as they are and seek out whatever it is they need. Whether you’ve got everything together, you’re a hot mess or you’re somewhere in between, I invite you to come home to your mat to discover what yoga can teach you.

Amy Speed

When Amy found yoga 16 years ago, she fell in love. For the first time in her life she experienced a physical practice that invited her to connect with her body exactly as it was in that moment. Years of battling weight and self-image issues meant that this idea was liberating for Amy. Life took her away from her practice for a few years, but she never let go of the ideas yoga had introduced to her. After the birth of her second child 5 years ago, Amy was once more called back to her mat. Now, through a dedicated practice she finds yoga allows her to bring more presence, patience, strength and gratitude into her life. As a teacher, Amy uses her experiences to authentically connect with her students. Expect her classes to balance an invitation for physical challenge through thoughtful sequencing and strong holds with moments of surrender to integrate body, mind and heart. It also should be mentioned that she loves to laugh, and works tirelessly on not taking herself too serious. Amy received her 200-hour training at The Studio in Madison, WI. She is also a certified Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga instructor.

Nora Groeschel

Nora Groeschel found yoga in 2012 at a time when she was craving balance on multiple levels: physical, mental, and spiritual. The practice welcomed her as she began her journey back to self-love after many years of suffering from eating disorders and exercise addiction. It re-introduced her to the beauty of the human body and the peace that living in the present moment can bring. Her dynamic vinyasa classes will invite you to let go of expectations, control, and perfectionism, to see your true self with compassion, to learn about your boundaries and preferences, to have some fun, and to love yourself. Nora became a registered yoga teacher (RYT200) at Perennial Yoga & Meditation, Fitchburg, WI in May 2014. In 2017 she completed a 50 hour Advanced Bhakti Training with Rusty Wells. Nora is forever a student and cannot wait to learn with you!

Sarah Peters

Sarah is a true seeker. In 2005, she found her way to yoga seeking healing physically and emotionally. Yoga has been the catalyst to finding her connection within herself, freedom to quiet the chaos, and tune it to her intuition. Her passion for healing and her gift to hold space for others, drives her to show up on her mat. Following her compassionate and committed heart, she completed her 200 RYT certification in 2017 at Perennial Yoga with Meg Sirchio and Keith Borden.
