Amanda Boerboom

Practicing yoga is my inhale. Teaching yoga is my exhale. I cannot do one without the other. I first found my way to yoga when I realized I was simply going through the motions of my overly busy life trying to juggle a full-time elementary teaching career, raising three beautiful (busy) children and managing the everyday demands of life. While just living in survival mode, I was painfully aware I was missing so many gifts along the way. The moment I stepped on my mat I knew I had come Home. It was an immediate reconnection to my Self and to my life. I began my journey to truly living a fully authentic, wholehearted life with presence and purpose. Through devoted practice, I learned that, like life, yoga is far more than going through the motions to reach an end point. Rather, it is a way of being. Yoga is a constant opportunity to learn, grow and return Home, but you have to be willing to do the work and stay on your mat. My practice has taught me countless lessons that guide me through life both on and off my mat. I learned the importance of presence, how to cultivate strength through vulnerability, to breathe and persevere through challenges and to reconnect to myself in order to better connect to and serve others. After establishing a dedicated practice, I was naturally compelled to combine my two passions, teaching and yoga, into one. As a yoga teacher, I am humbled and honored to offer a welcoming, inclusive space that invites my students to not just practice their yoga, but to live it. I encourage students to meet themselves where they are at with curiosity, love and compassion. With sincerity, reverence and a sense of humor, I infuse creative, dynamic sequences with eclectic music that empowers my students to embody presence, cultivate strength and connect mindful breath with intentional movements. My invitation is always to come Home and discover what yoga can offer, both on and off the mat.

Sean Ward

I found my way into yoga many years ago as a way to accentuate my meditation practice. As a result, I created greater strength and control in my body, more calm and clarity in my mind, and a stronger sense of connection spiritually. I am always excited by the possibility of helping someone else realize the many benefits of yoga and meditation that I have. Simply put, my offerings are geared towards a mindful, heart-centered practice that promotes presence and supports heightened self awareness. Sean completed the 200 hour Yoga Teaching Certification at Inner Fire Yoga, Madison, WI in 2012. As a Reiki Master, Sean infuses powerful healing energy into every class, and seeks to create a space for a more meditative, spiritual practice. 

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.
This Vinyasa style class is a balanced approach of effort and ease. It incorporates more challenging postures, including optional inversions and arm balances, and moves at a more dynamic tempo to build strength and grace. 
For students who have a regular practice and want to move at a more rejuvenating and rhythmic pace.
