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 transformative 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.

Anna, a St. Louis area native, found yoga in high school and since then has been practicing nearly everyday. She initially came for the physical practice after growing up playing tennis and running. However, she quickly realized that yoga is so much more than the poses. Anna became hooked on the sense of mental clarity and serenity she felt after a yoga class. In 2018, Anna moved to Colorado to study Psychology at CU Boulder. She found her home away from home at SOL 19. In 2019, she graduated from SOL’s 200 Hour Training and currently plans to continue in the 300 Hour Program. Additionally, she has learned Rocket and Hot Yoga styles. Anna loves yoga for the mental clarity, healing, and physical strength it brings to her life. Her intention is to empower her students to live their yoga on and off the mat.
Summer is a former high school teacher and service industry professional turned yoga teacher. She first found yoga 5 years ago, but her love for the practice didn’t blossom until she became a member at Sol 19 Yoga in June 2021.

Sabrina is a Colorado native who grew up doing competitive cheerleading. Throughout years of cheer she was looking for an additional workout that was less aggressive on her body. This is how she found yoga. She practiced on and off for 11 years and loved how it physically made her feel after walking out of a class. In 2019 she made the leap to take SOL’s 200 hour YTT program after many years of debating it. She planned to further her knowledge in the physical practice and then continue into fitness training. However, once she dove into the YTT program she quickly fell in love with the spiritual side that yoga brought to the plate. Sabrina then decided to pursue this path in hopes to share it with others. Her passions lay in exploring the world and spending time outdoors. Sabrina has completed 50 hours of Rocket training, 50 hours of Hot training, and is currently taking her 300 hour YTT through SOL 19.

Ingrid is a recovering journalist and Ironman triathlete who turned to yoga to heal her mind and body after years of stress and overtraining. Multiple injuries and surgeries had left her in near-constant pain, and she found that a daily practice gave her relief from the pain, improved mobility — and returned a little bit of sanity and confidence she’d lost along the way. To deepen her practice and gain a more holistic understanding of yoga, she completed both the 200-hour YTT and 50-hour Hot training at Sol 19 in the spring of 2021. Now in her 50s, Ingrid feels much stronger in mind, body and spirit than she ever has, and loves to share that experience through teaching.

Heddie began her yoga journey in 2015 while still in school at CU.
At first it was for the physical benefits but she quickly discovered how much more yoga has to offer and what she can learn from her practice. In 2016 she stumbled into her first teacher training not really knowing what she was getting into but she signed up for sculpt teacher training on a whim.
She then went down the teacher training rabbit hole and completed 2 more 200-hour teacher trainings. She started teaching in 2016 and is certified in Vinyasa, Hot, and Sculpt styles. She has helped facilitate programs and trainings as she has continued her teaching journey.
Heddie strongly believes yoga gives us the tools we need to help connect/reconnect us to ourselves, how we hold ourselves in our lives off of our mat, and it shows us how strong and capable we really are. She wants her students to feel supported, empowered, and connected in her classes.
Shauna started practicing yoga in 2006 after moving back to Colorado. Being a former dancer, she found the physicality of yoga to be very captivating. Wanting to deepen her practice, Shauna completed a 200-hour Power Yoga Teacher Training in Boulder, Co in 2012. The transformation that took place was so profound, that Shauna felt called to teach and began teaching power in Longmont. Her journey was supported and encouraged by her husband and growing family.
When Shauna started practicing at Sol 19 in 2020, she experienced an ascending shift to her yoga practice. Shauna was overjoyed to discover a studio that supported her personal growth. Once she was bitten by the Rocket bug, Shauna completed her first 50 Hour Rocket Training at Sol in Oct 2021, and began teaching Power at Sol 19 shortly after. In Feb 2022, she completed Sol’s 50 Hour Hot Yoga training, followed by her second Rocket Training in March. Shauna now has 200-Hours in Power, 50-Hours in Hot, and 100-Hours in Rocket. She plans to complete 300 Hours of Advanced Studies to continue her growth as a teacher.
