CANCER WELLNESS YOGAcancer-patient-doing-yoga

Cancer survivors who develop a yoga and meditation practice report they are better able to manage treatment and enjoy a healthy survivorship. Yoga makes me feel so strong and healthy and is a major key to my healthy survivorship.  This gentle style of yoga allows you to connect with other survivors, strengthen your body and mind, clear out toxins, increase blood flow, stimulate your lymphatic system, relax and improve your well being. Cancer survivors who are cleared by their doctor to exercise, can function independently and get up and down from the floor easily are welcome to attend. Caregivers are also welcome to attend with (or without) their survivor.  A medical history questionnaire and release is required prior to attending your first class.

Colorado Springs or via Video Chat. Yay for technology! Private and small group Cancer Wellness classes are available in-person or online.

Vinyasa classes marry postures with your breath to help you find the joy of mindful movement.  We take time to break down the postures to ensure proper alignment.  Practice space is not heated.  In-Person Private Vinyasa for Beginners classes are available for individuals and small groups in Colorado Springs.  I teach in-person Vinyasa classes in Colorado Springs at Cambio Yoga Studio as well as online via live video.

kids yoga 2.jpgKids are natural born yogis! Imagine a world where we all learned yoga principals at a young age!?!  Kids classes focus on fun, balance, self control, breath, cooperation and kindness. I teach Kids & Family classes at the location of your choice and in classrooms, churches, clubs and fitness facilities around Colorado Springs.

I’m certified by  Healthy Me! The Balanced Classroom to teach yoga and mindful movement to children.  This organization brings yoga classes to schools in and around Colorado Springs.  Classes combine breathing exercises, games, yoga poses and stories, crafts and quite relaxation.  Themes support physical, mental and emotional health in a safe, fun environment.  STEM themes and Literacy skills can be worked into the curriculum.  If you would like to bring yoga to your child’s school, please contact me at and we can arrange a meeting with your school.


Yoga Birthday Parties are themed around your child’s favorite things (movie, book, animal, pretty much anything he/she loves can be turned into a class theme).  Rates start at $100 and vary based on the age of the kids,  number of guests and location of the party. They are SO MUCH FUN and create a unique, memorable experience for all.


yoga-at-workTurn your conference room into a yoga studio. We don’t need a lot of space to practice yoga at your place of business.  Employees who do yoga regularly are happier, healthier and more productive.  Employers who offer workplace wellness activities to their staff have lower turnover and higher worker satisfaction scores. Yoga at Work classes are offered to businesses in and around Colorado Springs for a flat rate of $60/class for up to 6 people, or $10/person per class for groups of 7 or more. Lunchtime usually works best.

Christian YogaTurn your yoga practice into a moving meditation focused on God.  Heal from the inside out.  Christian Yoga classes explore themes from the bible and incorporate scripture into each class.  Popular and traditional Christian music is infused into the practice to set your heart, mind and soul on Jesus. Christian Yoga classes are available for adults, children, seniors or mixed-age, family classes.  Christian Yoga classes are typically held in churches but schools, fitness facilities, office spaces and parks work well too.  Private sessions and online sessions are also available. Contact me to set up your class.

Chair YogaI originally started teaching chair yoga to Cancer Survivors but it’s also great for seniors, anyone rehabbing an injury or those who want to learn how to use this powerful prop to deepen their yoga practice.  I offer chair yoga classes in studios, adult living facilities, fitness centers, offices, churches and to private clients in their homes. I am a certified SILVER SNEAKERS fitness instructor. Contact me to set up your chair class.
