She’s the owner. She grew up in Michigan and moved to Boulder, Co in her early 20’s. She was introduced to Power yoga in Boulder and was quickly encompassed by the many benefits of the yoga practice.

It also allowed her to find self confidence and personal power for the first time in her life. After completing her first 200 hr Teacher Training at Core Power in Boulder she decided that teaching was a must in her life. She love…… READ MORE

I am a native of Virginia Beach. I am many things in life: I am a trainer, a competitor, culinary student, yoga teacher, and student. Yoga has always struck my curiosity since I was a teenager. Always stepping on the mat for a more physical aspect, not realizing that was just scratching the surface. I did not fall deep into yoga until about 7 years ago when I visited a close friend in Carlsbad CA. Everyday I tried a new studio with a different style experiencing some of the different dynamics of yoga, but the philosophy aspect is what drew m…… READ MORE

Originally from a small town in New Jersey, at the age of 21 I decided I needed to get out of my comfort zone and move onto something new. I bought a one way ticket, packed 2 suit cases and headed to Hawaii. While on the beautiful island of O’ahu, my eyes where opened to a different type of life. I began to find different ways to better myself and others. It didn’t take me long to discover I wanted more! I found myself in a beautiful town in Arizona surrounded by red rocks and filled with people that shared my passion. I couldn’t have …… READ MORE

A native Canadian, I discovered yoga while living in Vancouver, BC in 2006. At the time, I was a bit of a gym rat…always dragging myself to the gym to lift weights, skip rope, run…it was a grind!

Nothing but yoga.” I was sold. I began yoga the next day and never looked back.

What I discovered from yoga was so much more than just a lean, strong fra…… READ MORE

I am a Virginia Beach native. Growing up I played many sports and loved being part of teams both in my community and also for my junior high and high school. As I “grew up” and no longer played team sports, my interest in physical fitness and living a healthy and balanced lifestyle increased. I stayed active by running or walking outside, workouts at the gym, or swimming laps at the Rec Center. Physical activity and exercise has always been my outlet for releasing stress from my demanding career as a public school teacher for middle scho…… READ MORE

I first came to step onto a yoga mat in September 2011 looking for a way to heal. I really didn’t know anything about yoga and the wide range of benefits that I have been learning come from a strong, consistent practice. Like many folks, I began my journey with almost no flexibility and little balance. I chose to approach this new
experience with an open mind and a strong will. As my practice has been growing, I have been truly
fortunate to have practiced under the guidance and along side some wonderful teachers.
I receiv…… READ MORE

He has trained with some of the most prolific movement therapists in the world and continues to find inspira…… READ MORE
