Blue Wave Instructors

Qualified Dedicated Instructors

Tammy Bauer

Owner & Head Fitness & Martial Arts Instructor

Tammy's journey into Martial Arts and fitness started because of her children. Out of shape, almost 30 years old and trying to keep up with her two young children made her quickly realize a change was needed.  So one day she decided to stop smoking, (yep I did that) and started running.  About two years later she ran her first half marathon, and began martial arts training with her children.

Quickly she realized that her active lifestyle and martial arts training opened doors to an avenue for stress relief, happiness, confidence, and not just the ability to keep up with her children, but to run circles around them! So, Tammy decided to open Blue Wave Edwardsville to share this experience with the community she grew up in.

Donna Bartley

Yoga Instructor & Admin

Donna Bartley is a 200 hour vinyasa trained yoga instructor.  She has been teaching for 3 years, and is still a student of yoga herself.  Donna continues to expand her knowledge by attending classes and workshops whenever possible.  Donna believes yoga is a way of life and more than just what you do on the mat.  Donna has taught all types of yoga from vinyasa flow to chair yoga. She has also taught Doga classes where students bring their dogs and have a unique bonding experience with them through yoga.  When not teaching, Donna enjoys time with her family.  Which includes her 2 sons and 2 granddaughters.

Chandra Bristol

Banded Yoga Instructor

Chandra's love and appreciation for movement and dance are limitless. She has been dancing since a young child and has always wanted to find a way to share her love for it. The practice of Yoga presented itself in her college years and she was immediately hooked.

Chandra is a Certified 200 hour RYT yoga teacher.

Once she heard of Buti Yoga in 2018 she was compelled to become certified and learn more about the practice. This practice combines her personality and passion and her hope is to uplift others to be the best version of themselves while encouraging that deep and positive connection.  Buti Yoga is a practice of going within to discover your true power and full potential. Its more than just a workout. Its a combination of dynamic yoga fused with primal movement and deep abdominal engagement. It is cardio intensive allowing you to tap in and sweat with intention while transforming your mind, body and soul.  

You are going to love Chandra's fast paced dance infused yoga classes!

Come join our tribe...we are waiting for you!

Jessica Hamilton

Strength Conditioning Coach

Jessica fell in love with fitness when she was in high school. Before this she thought being super lean and eating a restricted diet was healthy.

Fitness helped her realize that being healthy is more than just how lean you are. Fitness thow well you can move and how well you feel while moving. I enjoy teaching people about fitness and also helping them reach their goals. 

Interest: Snowboarding, high intensity training, playing with my dogs, hiking and eating. 

Certifications: CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Student at SIUE getting an undergrad in Exercise Science and plan on getting a masters in exercise physiology/psychology
