Meet The Team

Amber Rae Stinebrink

In 2002, while living on Maui, Amber took her first yoga class (on the beach).  Not only did she feel a deeper connection to the island, but something inside her was put at ease.  That day, her intrigue and exploration of yoga began.  After 11 years of practice, Amber felt an urge to teach and in March 2014 was certified RYT-200 with an Ashtanga-based Power Flow certification through Inner Fire Yoga in Madison, WI.  In October 2015 she completed her Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Deb Sommerhalder at Inner Sun Yoga in Oshkosh, WI.

 

Amber’s practices are taught with a continuous focus on linking breath with movement while staying grounded, kind and knowing that yoga will always be a practice.

Kristi

Schramski

Kristi took her first yoga class in 2015 and has been practicing consistently ever since.  She has found that yoga gives her strength, flexibility, balance and peace. The desire to learn more took her through teacher training in 2016.  

 

Her class style is vinyasa, linking breath with movement.

Kristi is a full-time Dental Hygienist, and has found yoga to help provide her with better posture during patient care.

When not practicing yoga, Kristi enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, and spending time outdoors.

Nikelle

Burrough

Nikelle began practicing yoga in 1997, and continues to grow on the path of yoga. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher certification locally in Lake Geneva at Indigo Yoga Center.  

 

Nikelle also practices massage therapy and a specialized bodywork technique called Coaching the Body (formally Therapeutic Thai Bodywork). This bodywork blends Traditional Thai Massage, Trigger Point theory, and Yogic Philosophy.  She believes that movement and breath can often re-train the neuromuscular system to restore proper range of motion and joint mobility. Yoga is integral in this process. 

 

Nikelle’s knowledge of functional anatomy allows her to facilitate movement and breath to create a balance between strength and ease. Her Ashtangasana style can be modified for every student’s intention.
