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 is an E-RYT500 and has completed over 1000 training hours in various yogic studies

Don’t be surprised to see our favorite furry friends 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.
Rocket is the newest addition to our SOL Squad and she is aptly named after Rocket Vinyasa, she is as spicy as can be, and in the next moment cuddling like a queen. She has been a bright light of love during what felt like a very challenging time in the 2020 pandemic.
BEWARE: Fierce Cuddler on the Premises…
But seriously, if you are not a dog person, just let us know and we will be courteous.

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!
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.
