Strengthen, Unwind And Restore
Each of our yoga classes is specifically designed to fire up your strength, reset your mind and restore your energy. Yoga classes are taught by some of the best yoga instructors in the area and tailored to fit every experience level.
Strong classes combine invigorating and vitalizing poses which improve strength, flexibility, balance and mind-body awareness. The breath is harnessed as a tool to improve focus during yoga, climbing and other activities. Poses range from moderate to difficult and modifications are offered to appeal to beginner and advanced yoga practitioners alike.
Relaxed yoga classes focus on releasing tension and lengthening muscles through gentle movement and deep breathing. Students will leave class feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Meet the Instructors
Being in the body, the mind and in emotional presence without relenting to the desire to escape challenging feelings brings growth. In committing to this process, Annette has found relief from physical and emotional pain and has gained more connection to self, others and her beloved activities. She began sharing her love of movement in 1996 with a degree in kinesiology. And her years as an avid outdoor enthusiast furthered this desire to help others find joy in movement. For 20 years she has worked as a corporate health manager, a trainer and an exercise physiologist for ortho and cancer patients. She has focused on improving quality of movement and tending to all aspects of the human experience. Her yoga study began in 2009 with Anusara. What has grown from this study of east/west is the marrying of biomechanics, yoga and somatics to create a unique tension release and empowerment program called MoYo Movement.
Annie was first drawn to yoga through her years living as a climbing bum in the American West during the mid ‘90s. She was attracted to the physical challenge of a strong asana practice and mentally challenged by the inward nature of yoga. Through the practice of yoga, Annie has been able to overcome the mental and emotional challenges presented in climbing, yoga and life. She is now a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher [CIYT] and Certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists [C-IAYT]. She has been teaching yoga for roughly 10 years and continues to study and work with students aspiring to certify in the Iyengar tradition. Annie’s teaching is full of cues which assist in leading one deeper into the poses and to a meditative state. In class she explores the connection between body, mind and breath and works with gross and subtle movement to subdue the mind. Off the mat, Annie enjoys being outside exploring rivers, rocks and canyons. She is an avid telemark skier, whitewater rafter and enjoys a good climb!
Michelle has been practicing yoga for 18 years and teaching for 8. She completed her 500-hour certification with Yoga 4 Life (Para Yoga) and nationally graduated in Yoga Therapy. Michelle uses the principles of alignment to restore balance, increase strength and manage personal awareness. She adapts smooth, yet powerful yoga techniques, movement, breath work, meditation and relaxation to mindful grounding and postural ease with a deep connection of the heart wisdom. She works actively in medical clinics as a Yoga Therapist.
Michelle moved to Colorado in 2014, leaving behind her a busy corporate career to dedicate herself to the teaching of yoga and yoga therapy. She is an outdoor person and has found her groove in mountain living.
Missy became a dedicated practitioner of yoga in 2007, and in 2011, she completed her with Vital Yoga. She teaches what she likes to practice: rigorous and playful Vinyasa style with introductions to advanced postures, and she encourages her students to focus on proper alignment. She provides a fun, welcoming environment for students of all levels to practice, and she encourages students to push themselves to their own limits. Missy has done deep spiritual work opening her heart, and she guides students to do the same.
Missy was raised in Colorado and enjoys being an active skier, hiker, and yogini. In addition, she owns Free to Fly, a business focused on helping you break through any blockages keeping you from your full potential.

Lucie Geraci has been active in the yoga community for years as a student and teacher. Her mission is to encourage students to explore their unique spirituality through a physical practice. With creative, challenging, and “custom fit” classes, Lucie hopes to apply her yoga practice into any flavor of fitness-off the mat and into the world. She has received her 200-hour certification through Charm City Yoga under Kim Manfredi and Emily Lodge in 2015 and her 300-hour certification in 2016 through Yogaworks under Kim Manfredi and Sarah Cook.
Brittany began her journey with yoga in 2012 after her first yoga class in Austin, TX. Since then, she has completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training, yoga anatomy training with Leslie Kaminoff and various workshops that have given shape to how she now leads her classes. She loves to teach climbers and newcomers the foundations of yoga through asana, pranayama, and philosophy. You can expect to be challenged and sweetly held in a safe container of self-expression. With inhalation and exhalation being the focal point of practice, you will be guided through longer position holds, which will challenge the body, mind and breath to slow down. You’ll have a conscious, full-body experience of being in the present moment. When she's not teaching, you can find Brittany in the bouldering gym, on a slackline, in the kitchen whipping up dank food or behind the turntables DJing for various movement and art events.

Misty is a traveler, adventure seeker and nature lover. When yoga found her at the age of 17, she fell in love with the spiritual connection, newfound self-love and body awareness. She became a massage therapist in 2012, which fueled her interest in anatomy and movement.
Her goal is to inspire others to live their best lives. By assisting others in stepping out of their comfort zones, they can cultivate growth at their personal edges. Misty enjoys taking yoga outside of the studio. She has taught at The Wild Animal Sanctuary, breweries, parks, on hikes and is also SUP yoga certified. When she is not on her mat, you can find her working with her natural products company, The Flowered Life.

Tiffany is a lifelong student and a yoga teacher since 2004. Teacher trainings at YogaWorks (Iyengar & Astanga), Esalen Institute (Trauma-Informed yoga & philosophy), and Om Time (Vinyasa & Anusara) provide a solid foundation for her balanced teaching style. Ongoing study of anatomy, trauma-informed yoga, various bodywork modalities, meditation, and Tantrika philosophy inspire her to refine. She is especially delighted to teach to fellow climbers and to learn from the creative movement, focus, and breath connection required when moving on rock. In an alignment-based Vinyasa class, we practice mindful precision in body awareness, and rhythmic, creative movement guided by the breath's pulsation. Beyond yoga, she loves climbing, snowboarding, hiking, gardening, cooking, and exploring the wild world with her husband and pup.
Tiffany is also our Yoga Program Manager.
