Samantha Jean Link, Owner

Samantha has always been a person of movement; engaging in various sports and dance. She truly found her niche in 2010 when she was introduced to the practice and power of yoga. She received her yoga certification in Bali in 2014.

“Yoga taught me to slow down and embrace the present moment in whatever that may be at the current time.”

Samantha is also a personal trainer and believes in the balance of both yoga and fitness. She knows that yoga can bring a certain peace of mind that allows a person to block out the noise and help find direction in life.

“When yoga is combined with weight training it is possible to accomplish all health and fitness goals; which can then breathe stability to all aspects of life.”

Kate Yanke, Yoga Instructor

Kate began her yoga practice in 2002 with a Denise Austin Yoga VHS tape, and hasn’t looked back since. In 2009 she completed her first 200hr teacher training, and began teaching yoga.

Always a student first, Kate has studied Vinyasa Yoga with various teachers, but takes her greatest influence and inspiration from Trish Washburn, Meg Galarza, and Jim Bennit.

With a background in dance and competitive swimming, Kate finds herself drawn to a strong, fluid, and dynamic practice on the mat.

“ I am passionate about the benefits of movement and breath for body, mind, and spirit.”

In addition to living a yoga-centered life, Kate loves to cook, bike, surf, SUP, and spend time with her amazing daughter, Zoe, and best-friend-turned-husband, Scott.⁣


Jeff Herro, Personal Trainer

The word “coach” in the dictionary refers to an old eastern European word from a city in Hungary where they use to make stage coaches! It means to take somebody somewhere, to go on a journey! People ride coach when they ride a train or take a plane! I am a “Coach”!

I believe as a coach it is my great honor to go on a journey with you! My job, my focus is to help you take you to this thing or place that you want! I will do my best to get you closer to the place you want to go!

We are going to go on a journey together, we will define goals, achieve success and feel failure! We will laugh, smile, cry, complain, argue, celebrate and be great! This journey may be long or just a moment in time either way I’d be honored to take you for a ride! “I am a COACH.”


Courtney Krueger, Yoga Instructor


Courtney has a 500-Hour YTT as a yoga instructor. Hear a little bit more from her below…

I started teaching over four years ago, certified in Vinyasa and Ayurveda, after my practice began about eight years ago.
I love a slower-paced style of yoga, incorporating deep healing; asking to hold postures, find your unique breathe pattern, alleviating stress and tension through the body.
I love spending my time with my two boys, a yellow Lab and Great Dane, and can’t wait to practice with you all!

Josh Boos, Personal Trainer

I started my health and fitness journey from an early age playing tennis from age six to the present.

It wasn’t until my senior year of high school where I really started to figure out what I wanted to do for a career. I found a passion in weight lifting and working out.

Through my time in Boy Scouts and helping people, I discovered I wanted to be in an industry where I could push people and watch them grow and succeed. I graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science.

I look forward to creating personalized training programs and fitness classes that help individuals reach their goals and push them to their highest potential.


Carrie Trubenbach, Yoga Instructor

I found yoga through an elective class in college… enrolling to find a new “edge” to improve performance as a competitive athlete.
Since then, my goals have changed quite a bit! 25+ years later, yoga is still in my life and providing me so much more than physical benefit.
I completed my 200-Hour YTT in 2020 to simply deepen my own practice. I have come to realize how practice truly grows and expands through sharing it with others, as a teacher.
I love that yoga practice brings people of such wide experience, background, and ability together to enhance their own well-being.
Outside the studio, I have my own physical therapy and coaching practice. Other fun for me includes outdoor exploring, indoor puzzles & games, and anything that includes time with my husband, our son & daughter.

Nikki Tioni, Yoga Instructor

Nikki’s journey with movement started when she gained 70 pounds after a severe ankle injury. She found fitness and yoga as a way to not only take back control of her health and lose weight, but also as a way to relieve stress.
Her love of fitness and yoga took her to the next step when she left her career as an accountant and became a Service and Operations Manager for a gym. She then became a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor.
“I truly love helping people improve their health through coaching a high energy and sweat pouring class.”
During this time, Nikki was a skater on a local roller derby team and she then found more of the importance of yoga, not only from a physical stand-point but a mental one.
Nikki then hung-up her skates and replaced them with a yoga mat. She completed her RYT-200 in 2020 through Healium Hot Yoga.
“Yoga really helped me get through some tough times and I look forward to growing as a teacher so that I can further bring this knowledge and experience to the community.”
