If you are a beginner or advanced you will enjoy the challenging classes Heather provides. They are mixture of Vinyasa Yoga, strength training, and mobility Work. Her class atmosphere is easy going with lots of laughter. Heather also enjoys being upside down doing inversion postures and holds many workshops throughout the year.
Jonathan began experimenting with yoga on and off in the late 90s as a way to feel better after long hikes and innumerable skateboarding falls. It wasn’t until 2009 that he began a regular practice. He thoroughly enjoyed the physical benefits, and the sense of being fully in the present moment that appeared each time he unrolled his mat.
In addition to a 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2018, he has completed trainings in restorative yoga, and both Detour Method Online and Detour Method Synthesis with YogaDetour. These additional trainings have fundamentally shifted his approach to teaching movement, with more attention devoted to mobility and exploration of movement for a sustainable lifelong practice.
Jonathan is eager to share the practice of yoga and help others find balance in their lives by connecting the elements of stillness, balance, movement, effort, and ease.

Outside of the studio, Jeremy is an avid gardener, loves to cook, can food, and go hiking!

Born and raised in northwestern Montana, my family moved to Colorado in 2000. I attended college at UNC where I fell in love with group fitness. The atmosphere and camaraderie kept me coming back and I ended up meeting some of my closest friends at those classes. After meeting my husband and moving out to Weldona, I sought out a new, local gym and began taking classes. Not long after, I made the leap to the other side of the mic and started leading my own weekly class. I received my initial group fitness training through AAAI in 2010, Barre certification in 2017, Indoor Cycling certification in 2020, and Power Pilates Mat 1 in 2022!
