About Us

Shamrock Wellness is a family owned yoga and massage therapy studio in Carmel, Indiana.  Linda, Amy and Eric Banter are excited to have the opportunity to fulfill their vision to integrate the modalities of yoga and massage into medicine. With the help of Amy Banter, MD and Riverview Hospital, this vision is now in motion.

Most recently, Lucy Banter has joined the Shamrock team becoming a certified yoga instructor at just 13 years old!  This makes the age range of our staff now 13-71 years old!  It also means that 3 generations of the Banter family are now actively involved involved in the business.

Whether you are looking to improve the health in your body, the stability in your mind or accelerate your spiritual growth, the ancient art of yoga can take you down any or all of these paths. We offer yoga classes in Carmel, IN seven days a week as we are happy to share the art of yoga with the community.  After just a few sessions, you should reap a multitude of benefits. The goal of yoga is to create body awareness, which usually results in people becoming more mindful, present and aware of their lives and actions.  Many describe this as the “spiritual” aspect of yoga – the basic mindfulness that balance can bring to our lives!

Jackie Stein

Angie Musselman

Angie Musselman Yoga Instructor

I was introduced to Yoga by my mom when I was 16.  She had bought Ali McGraw’s “Yoga, Mind & Body” DVD, and this is where I started to fall in love with yoga. I was not an active teenager and was full of anxiety. Yoga gave me a more purposeful form of physical activity that I was craving. As life moved on, I phased in and out of a regular practice.
After a back surgery and losing two loved ones too soon, I found myself evaluating what my passion is and what I have to give back to this crazy world.  Becoming a yoga instructor had been in my heart for sometime, but finding the bravery to do it was what I had yet to discover. And with the encouragement of friends and family, I graduated Shamrock Wellness’s YTT200 in May 2016.
Yoga is this amazing vehicle that makes everything a little clearer in life. It can focus the lens of your mind’s eye and decrease the static on your receiver. I believe I am a better mother, wife, friend, and more focused in my faith. I am not always pleased with what I learn through this eyes wide open journey, but I am better changed and able to make the world around me just a little brighter.
I hope to teach a practice that will challenge you physically and mentally, allowing joy to rush into the open spaces that your practice will reveal!
Annie Fellmeth

Annie Fellmeth Yoga Instructor

Annie Fellmeth had been a dancer her whole life before she found her true passion in yoga. Immediately drawn to the physical movement and the flow of Vinyasa, she found a peaceful place to finally feel physically and mentally complete. After her very first yoga class, she knew she wanted to be a certified teacher and she studied yoga at Shamrock Wellness Center under the instruction of Eric Banter and Linda Banter.

Annie is enchanted by the comprehensive nature of yoga. Yoga is for everyone, everyone can practice, and everyone can find a niche to heal physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. She is excited to teach because she is so grateful for the amazing things yoga has done for her and feels honored to share yoga with other people and help guide them through their own journeys.

Hi, I’m Vicky. In November 2012, I joined the Shamrock Wellness team as a massage therapist. I am very grateful to share my passion for relieving pain in an effective, healthy manner with others who are equally passionate about you feeling strong and healthy.  Low back pain does not need to limit you.  At the clinic, you are able to benefit from my 18 years of experience through neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, trigger and point therapy, and positional release.  Whether for pain relief, post-operative rehabilitation, enhanced sports performance or relaxation, you will feel the difference from our session.
