Amanda Boboltz And Paige Allia

Paige's students and clients describe her as a peace warrior and she brings this passion into her trauma informed classes which range from exploring laughter to learning more about vulnerability and self healing. Paige incorporates sound, reiki, guided relaxation, and yoga poses to encourage her students to explore their bodies and minds to connect to their souls and heartfelt desires. As a cultural anthropologist, exploring the world with compassion and curiosity while making self inquiries to relearn and repattern her own thinking is a key component in all of her travels and yoga retreats. Paige is a 500 RYT and is trauma informed yoga therapy certified. She the owner and founder of Karmic Roots, www.karmicrootsyoga.com.

Amanda had her first “yoga moment” in 2003 amongst a class of fifth graders on an Indian Reservation in South Dakota. She witnessed how the simple combination of breath and mindful movement invoked a sense of calm, focus, and connection. Since then, yoga has become the anchor that accompanies and grounds her throughout all her travels (and there are lots of them!), and all of life’s transitions - big and small. Amanda began teaching in 2007. She currently has 300 certification hours, and is working towards 500-hour status with Janet Stone. Amanda’s students find her lighthearted and positive approach refreshing, and it is not uncommon for laughter to erupt in her classes. She believes in the power of music and sound to help elevate students’ experiences, while also embracing silence when the moment is right. She challenges students to tap into their own innate body wisdom and come to know their inner teacher as they learn what it means to really take care of themselves. She has lead yoga retreats both domestically and internationally, and travels widely to train with influential teachers. Amanda's roots are in Northern Michigan and she is the owner and founder of Elevate Yoga.
