Tam Burke

Owner | Teacher | Bailey's Mom

Tamara began yoga in 2011 as cross training to distance running. She quickly fell in love with feeling more connected to herself through breath and movement. She surprised herself when she found herself craving the mental clarity more than the physical practice that yoga provided.

Tamara completed her 200 hour Vinyasa training in May 2016

through Charlotte Yoga. In February 2017, Tamara traveled to India and completed a month long intensive 300 hour Vinyasa training. Her time in India was wildly transforming and has called her to bring a more grounding and inspiring energy into her classes allowing her students to connect deeper to themselves and their own light.

Tamara’s intention is to help others recognize the mind-body connection through breath and movement.

Mark Stefanowski

Teacher

Mark is a Harley riding, beer drinking, hard-working, animal loving Wisconsin native. He began practicing yoga ten years ago when he realized that his life needed to change from the path that it was on. After stops in multiple yoga studios exploring his relationship with himself and others he ended up in a teacher training. During that training, he was hit by a realization – he was not like everyone else in the room. That realization pushed him to do something different, to create an environment of inclusivity and to build his unique style of yoga. From his first yoga class in a Harley Davidson repair shop to his current classes, he continues his mission to create an environment where through physicality and community people can love themselves more. His classes are powerful, bold and fun and he challenges you to join him in his outlaw ways.

Keri Wenzel

Teacher

Over ten years ago, in hopes of finding a connection to my physical self & inner spirituality, I discovered a personal yoga asana & meditation practice. What came of it has been an astounding journey into the depths of my physical & mental well-being. It is my belief & experience that by practicing yoga and meditation, we can reach deeper into our Purusha, or Truest Self. During our practice, we learn to receive the space & clarity that naturally arises through the proper alignment of the physical & subtle body. From this, we can allow ourselves to feel & understand our most inherent state of being; peacefulness, contentment, bliss. It is my intention to guide others to find this on their mat, so that we all may act & serve from our truest & best selves in our everyday lives. I am a 500 hour certified yoga instructor. I studied under The talented and knowledgeable Tom Quinn, Quinn Kearny, Geri Bleier, and Claire Mark at Yoga view Chicago. My trainings have had a focus on human anatomy,proper alignment, safe adjustments & assists, as well as yoga philosophy& meditation. My classes are traditional vinyasa flow. During the years of trainings, and in becoming a mother myself, I have also developed a love of teaching prenatal yoga. My enjoyment of practicing Ashtanga Yoga, meditating, & love of music also positively influence my style of teaching. It is with gratitude that I serve others in the practice of yoga asana & meditation.

Sherif Sakr

Teacher

Yoga found Sherif in 2006. Though it was difficult for him to do the postures and keep up with the flow, he got hooked by the relaxation pose (Savasana) at the end of class. For the first time, his mind learned to be still…and he loved it. In 2010 Sherif became a teacher, and in 2012 he opened a yoga studio in south Denver with his dear wife Heather. He taught yoga, meditation, vedic astrology and led numerous teacher trainings and international retreats. You can expect to flow and sweat in Sherif’s classes, and to explore OMing, singing, and living your practice off your mat. Sherif is also an executive coach who works with CEOs and business owners.

After reconnecting with the peace and place of belonging yoga provided after becoming a mom, Carley was drawn toward teaching and got her BUTI Yoga certification and her 200 hour TT through Colorado School of Yoga.
