Kimberly Manthey, Owner
Passionate About Inspiring Others
In a world filled with distraction and high tech stressors, meditation and yoga are a great way to hit pause, pay attention and return to the present moment by focusing on what is directly in front of us. This practice of intentional being allows remaining clear on what is important in our lives while still being able to accomplish a balance of work and home life.
My name is Kimberly Manthey, and I have over 20 years of hands-on teaching experience. I am trained in advanced Asana techniques (yoga poses), anatomy, body alignment, Pranayama (breath work), advanced meditation techniques, mindfulness, yoga philosophy, and Ayurvedic principles.
In addition to leading several yoga retreats locally, nationwide, and internationally, I have also taught Mindfulness, meditation and motivation to sales teams, workshops on stress reduction, and specialized yoga techniques.
I have been a motivational speaker and have worked with a variety of ages, genders, and limitations, making sure to customize training and teachings to the specific needs of individuals or companies

Dirty Feet Yoga Instructors
Sarah Sobel, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Sarah tried yoga on and off for a while but for some reason, it never stuck. Then she was introduced to the Vinyasa style and was able to quickly incorporate it into her life. She suffers from difficulty breathing, so finding a physical outlet that focuses on incorporating breath into movement was refreshing, and her favorite part of the practice. Her goal now is to create fun, creative, challenging, yet accessible-to-all classes for her students that get them as in-tune with their breathing as she is.
Cheryl Kornburger, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Cheryl began practicing yoga in 2013 because of lingering tension in her shoulders as well as recurring Piriformis Syndrome for over a year without relief from conventional medicine. Incorporating a regular yoga practice into her life has resulted in being symptom free for several years. Wanting to integrate her body, mind, and soul, she decided to learn more about yoga by becoming a 200 hour Vinyasa RYT instructor, completing her training a year ago. As someone who came to this practice later in her life, she focuses on making yoga challenging, but accessible, so her students leave feeling empowered.
Tamara Sprenger, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Tamara began practicing yoga to manage back pain and strengthen her back following an injury. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2013 with Meg Galarza at YogaOne and has been teaching weekly classes since. She offers strength-based, challenging classes that are balanced with a playful, fun spirit, always encouraging her students to try new things while at the same time honoring their bodies. When she’s not teaching yoga you might find her enjoying the outdoors or cheering for her son at a hockey or lacrosse game around town.
Lou Ann Peterson, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Lou Ann has been an active member of Yoga Alliance since 2009 teaching a blend of yoga incorporating breath, body alignment, and vinyasa flow. She enlightens your yoga practice with a wealth of knowledge about the body and the principles of movement from her career as an Occupational Therapist. Lou Ann believes yoga is a wonderful way to support and enhance your mind and body at any stage in your life.
Hadley Pape, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Hadley began practicing yoga in 2011 as a method for weight loss and to increase general fitness. She quickly realized many other wonderful things yoga has to offer, including spiritual, mental, and emotional wellness. After a few years enjoying the benefits of regular yoga practice, she completed her 200 hour teacher training so that she could share it with others. Hadley uses breath work and asana to help you cultivate a calm and peaceful inner landscape. Her focus is to encourage you to reconnect with your physical self as a way to enable a deep and meaningful connection with your non-physical, energetic self.
Dana Thomas, Vinyasa 200 RYT
Dana began her yoga journey in 2007 while living in Hawaii. She has since received her RYT 200 hour certification through Yoga Alliance At Yoga on the Lake Studio in Kohler, Wisconsin. Health and wellness have always been a big part of her life from growing up with an active lifestyle to her career in healthcare. She likes to focus her classes on mind, body, and spirit through breath, alignment, and meditation. Forever a student, Dana enjoys attending workshops and exploring the many branches yoga has to offer.
Paula Evans, CYT, RYT E200/500 YACEP
Paula teaches from the heart, rooted in the tradition of Ashtanga and inspired by the students she guides. She is dedicated to offering yoga instruction that is accessible to everyone.
