Lincoln Yoga Center was founded in 2010 by Sheila Palmquist, E-RYT500, RPYT, RCYT. Since it’s inception, The Center has grown to four studios and a host of community yoga programs, including yoga in the schools and teacher training programs.
Our mission is to light the path as others begin their journey into yoga. With the understanding that we are all different, and have the opportunity to start anew every day, we offer a variety of yoga classes to suit all levels and abilities, from balance and flexibility for foundational security, to Intermediate/Advanced for a playful challenge.
For the next 2 years I became a dedicated yoga student and then began teaching. I moved to Lincoln 3 years ago where a wonderful opportunity for self-transformation opened its doors, under the teaching of Thomas and Tataya Radtke. Going into the Teacher Training at YBB, I thought it would just help me become a better teacher. What I really got was a radical transformation in myself.
My absolute favorite part about teaching yoga is seeing a student connect with themselves on a level they didn’t even know existed AND THEN seeing them carry that connection with them out into the world, off of the mat. Yoga began and continues to be a way in which I rehabilitate my body. But more than that, it is showing up for myself and others and letting go of the expectations I have of the world, of the people in the world, and with myself.
In my class you can expect to laugh, sweat, connect, feel, open, let go, trust, breathe, and most importantly… PLAY!
I have been a childbirth educator since 1999, and took my first yoga training and started teaching pre and postnatal yoga in 2005. I took another training in 2008 with Yogrishi Vishvketu and continued to teach and to lead teacher trainings in pre and postnatal.

Certified in Inner Power Yoga through the Yoga World Reach organization. Hugh believes life’s journey begins with reconciliation with oneself. “I like to offer a practice with inner awareness which can blossom outwardly. Through our practice we can move closer to this sensation of wholeness. It’s an amazing feeling when we experience this deep connection.”
Having spent seven years doing gymnastics and circus skills as a child and teenager, in my 20s I struggled to find another form of 'exercise' I enjoyed... until I discovered yoga.
Initially it was just a physical attraction and we had an on-off relationship for several years. Curiously, I found that whenever I stopped practicing yoga, it always had a way of finding me again!
The last time yoga found me I was in Argentina and I finally started to appreciate the other elements of yoga, especially meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises).
I completed my 200-hour teacher training at Shoshoni Ashram in Colorado where I found myself growing in ways I could never have imagined. I also found that I had to unlearn a lot of what I thought I knew, leave my ego behind and relearn what yoga was all about!
I like to focus on breathing and the correct alignment of poses. I enjoy helping students to connect with their breath to enable them to focus on the present moment. I believe that by practicing yoga we become physically and mentally stronger, we improve body awareness and acceptance... and we can have fun at the same time!
Laura is a licensed and certified yoga instructor and proud to be a graduate of the 200 level Yoga World Reach IPY teacher training program, and feels yoga doesn’t just address the physical workout – but it is a practice that connects the mind and the body.
Laura lives in Lincoln with her husband Kristian and their five children. She loves music, reading, and traveling.
Amy completed her 200-hr Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) training through the Lincoln Yoga Center in May 2013. Her classes are designed around the strengthening, training, and the fine-tuning of muscles for overall fitness and health. Amy’s class style incorporates Vinyasa flow with deep holding of some postures in between flow sequences – perfect for the athlete or active yogi in you! A wine aficionado, Amy also teaches a monthly “Vino and Vinyasa” class that consists of an hour of Vinyasa yoga followed by the community enjoyment of several different brands of the featured wine type of the month. In addition to teaching group classes, Amy is also available to teach private lessons by appointment.
