Our Story

Yoga At The Crossroads originated as Five Peaks Yoga created by Barb Officer and Janice Anderson. Amanda Flowers started working at Five Peaks offering a Rise N Shine yoga class to the schedule as well as Thai Yoga Bodywork. Barb was blessed a new grand-baby and wanted to be closer to her family out of state and decided to create an AirBNB with her family in California. With Barb moving she didn't want the students of Five Peaks to lose a place to come and practice yoga and that is when Yoga At The Crossroads was created. Starting August 2017 Amanda's company of Live Eat Breathe Wellness LLC took over and renamed the studio.

Experienced - 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

I began my exploration with yoga in 2007. In 2014, I completed my first teacher training at Jane’s House of Well-Being in St. Charles, Missouri. I was trained to teach Hatha yoga, using the Dynamic Yoga Method (DYM), under Robin Buck, Sarah Kadel, Matthew and Holly Krepps, and other masterful teacher’s. I registered with The National Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and began teaching soon after.
My teaching style is non-judgmental and always tries to encourage growth physically, mentally, and emotionally. Reminding my students to come back to themselves by getting out of their heads and into their bodies. I keep my students safe in their postures by using subtle cuing, hands-on adjustments, and modifications. This helps to challenge each student to reach beyond their perceived limitations, so they can begin to find and understand their own body. I am great with beginners and strives to make each class accessible for all levels. When I am not teaching yoga you can find me at Lindenwood University, where I am currently working on a dual master’s in counseling, or you may catch me out in nature exploring.
Yoga is about transformation of the self, on and off the mat, finding balance with effort and ease in each posture and with whatever life throws your way. Yoga helps to create unity with your body, mind, and breath in practice and in life. I believes that yoga is more than just about form, it is giving you the gift to truly see yourself and allowing yourself to let go of the “baggage” we all carry around with us.

Kendra Lacy

200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

I am a wife, friend, daughter, sister and soon-to-be mama:  An optimistic environmentalist and a slacker vegetarian.  I currently live in Lake Saint Louis with my fur- baby and my husband, Justin.

A former Division 1 athlete, I’ve been described as an unyielding free spirit who happens to dress in business casual. While it’s true I may be a flurry of contradictions (my favorite quote is Gandhi’s “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” and my favorite movie is Adventures in Babysitting), my unconventional worldview and lighthearted brand of consciousness have become my signature to friends and family.

I grew up in Wichita, Kansas, where my father was a banker and my mother ran a day care out of our home.  My parents’ devotion to the success of their children allowed me to pursue my talents in basketball which ultimately led to a full athletic scholarship at the University of Missouri and the opportunity to travel the country.  My basketball career gave me a passion for lifelong fitness, but it also gave me some inflexible joints and persistent pain.

Suggested by my mom, a long time yoga enthusiast I tried yoga. I quickly saw that yoga also aligned with my spiritual outlook and allowed me to practice mental and physical discipline, which resulted in greater overall balance for me. Having said that, I love a sweaty Powerful Yoga flow. It pushes the limits of your mind and body.

I completed my vinyasa teacher training to earn my 200 RYT in the fall of 2011 and continuing my education hours in Yin/restorative yoga. My deepest passion lies within the power of essential oils on and off the mat.  I believe they are a key element to unlocking our truest potential providing us with the benefits to stay grounded and connected. The growth I have seen in myself and the confidence I've gain since incorporating essential oils into my daily routine have been nothing short of life changing and I look forward to sharing what I've learned with the Crossroads tribe.

Experience 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

Like many she tried yoga for the first time in her living room to a DVD. Soon after she found her way into a studio and then in 2012, she started teaching yoga. Her teaching is dynamic and includes detailed alignment instructions that are easy to follow. Each class has a fresh feel to keep students interested and engaged. Practitioners will work efficiently while being reminded by her kind voice to stay in the moment and will leave feeling open on multiple levels. Erin has studied and trained with Sam Rice, Darren Rhodes, Ellen Niedringhaus, Brigette Finley and Mitchel Bleier. She has completed two 200-hour teacher training and in 2018 she graduated from her 300 hour training with Sam Rice Yoga.

Erin loves spending time with her daughter, Ava, and husband, Lee. She is an artist, loves to read, and soak up the sun. When she isn’t immersed in her yoga and meditation practices you will find her outside playing in the dirt and watching her garden grow.

500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

My YOGA journey first started with a class at the gym. I quickly fell in love with how YOGA made me feel, both body and mind. I knew right away I wanted to share this energy with everyone.

I completed my 200 hour training at Jane’s House of Well-being. Shortly after I continued on to my 00 hour advanced training with Pam Schulte.

I look to everyone and everything as my teacher. As I guide you through practice, I am there to open the door, it is up to you to walk through.

I offer up modifications, and make my class accessible for all. Everyone has a place in my class.

Come practice with me. See you on the mat.
