Everyone has a story and has been through some form of stress mentally and physically to their body. Creating a quiet yoga studio at the "Crossroads of the Nation" in Wentzville, MO. We offer Hatha yoga classes as well as Gentle, Chair, Senior, Restorative and Meditation classes for the community. We offer a safe place where you can be YOU and inquire more about yourself and grow as a community with like minded individuals.
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.

I want students to know that you don't have to do all the crazy yoga poses you see online, unless you want to of course. I invite you to come to class, discover more about yourself, your inner self and know that you do what you can in class, your body is your biggest teacher, I am here for guidance. Its okay to come to class and rest as much as you want, or be engaged as much as you want, I will offer and hold a safe space for you to inquire deeper into yourself and your practice. Look forward to seeing you on the mat!

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.

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.
