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.

Studio Dog

Don’t be surprised to see our favorite furry friend lounging around the studio or giving you licks when you walk in the door. Bailey came into our lives seven years ago and what a blessing she has been. We have learned countless lessons from her and love her like a child. We hope you enjoy having her around as well. BEWARE: Fierce Cuddler on the Premises… But seriously, if you are not a dog person, just let us know and we will be courteous.

Mark Stefanowski


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.

Kevin Flynn


Kevin views yoga as an experimental process that ultimately provides tools for the practitioner to uncover the higher Self. He draws inspiration from a range of yogic traditions to create an intentional alchemy behind each practice. By cultivating a balance of effort and ease, students are provided a nurturing yet encouraging environment to find self-growth. While Kevin’s goal is to hold sacred space for self-exploration, he urges students to find a sense of discipline and curiosity within their practice. Equipped with Yoga Teacher and Health Coach Certifications, he provides a well-rounded approach to living a healthy lifestyle off the mat. When he isn’t teaching, you can find him in the mountains.

Keri Wenzel


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


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.

Amanda Meader

Amanda A. Meader


Hi! I’m Amanda Meader, a Yoga Alliance e-RYT 200; currently working on my 300 Hour Yoga Certification at the Colorado School of Yoga.

Employed as an IBM Project Manager with a passion for health and fitness led me to become a certified fitness instructor; that was almost 20 years ago; yet something was missing, I needed another outlet physically as well as mentally. After my introduction to Bikram Style Hot Yoga in 2004, I was hooked! Since then I have been a practitioner of Hatha Yoga.

I am inspired by the mental and physical challenges yoga provides, along with the spiritual and intellectual clarity possible through practice. With my newfound passion for Yoga, I wanted to take it deeper and share it with others; as a result, I completed my 200-hour teaching training in 2015.
With my health and fitness background, I believe it’s important to not only reveal and emphasize the proper form and alignment of a posture, but the mechanics behind it.

I strive to provide a class where my students feel challenged yet in control, so what they learn on their mat empowers them to take on anything they face off the mat!

I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes soon!

Erin Wilson


I know yoga to be deeply healing because of the profound impact it has had on me personally. Yoga found me in 2007 during my late teens, a tumultuous time in my life. As a lifelong gymnast and dancer having sustained career ending injuries – I found yoga to be not only therapeutic physically but also powerfully transformational inwardly. I aspire to share this same awareness and inner alchemy with students through alignment based asana (physical poses), pranayama (breath), mantra and yogic philosophy in classes accessible to all levels. In 2016, I traveled to Bali, Indonesia to become certified in Sivananda lineage Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, followed by advanced training in Universal and Forrest Yoga in 2018. I am also a certified Usui Holy Fire lineage Reiki Master and enjoy incorporating energetic aspects and hands on assists to help students deepen their practice. I am grateful to be a part of the community at Sol19 and look forward to meeting you on your mat.

Jenny Landis


My love of yoga stems from my background as a pharmacist and the awareness that many things we medicate people for could be alleviated with lifestyle changes. Yoga is the most amazing therapy for mind, body, and soul. I know of no other practice that helps achieve balance and supports the body’s natural defenses so effectively. Anyone can practice yoga, and yoga can challenge even the most elite athlete. My goal is to provide an environment where students deepen their life force breath and tap into their innate wisdom. Part of the blessing that is yoga is it’s simplicity. At times in the stillness of savasana we see ourselves in a new light – and that has the potential to change everything.
