Atlas Encourages Total Wellbeing with Weekly Yoga Classes
Yoga offers numerous physical benefits including*:
- Lessening chronic pain
Increased muscle strength and tone
Improved respiration, energy and vitality
Maintaining a balanced metabolism
Cardio and circulatory health
Improved athletic performance
Protection from injury
In addition to a wealth of health benefits, yoga also contributes to mental health in positive ways. Regulating breath and meditating during yoga helps focus on the mind/body connection, lessening stress and strengthening mental clarity and calmness. Stress can manifest in different ways, from chronic pain like head and body aches to sleep problems, difficultly focusing and more. It is critical to have tools that can help eliminate stress and create a positive outlook.
Atlas recognizes these benefits as critical for success, both personally and professionally. Join our team each Wednesday at 12pm to regroup through yoga.

I was born and raised in Colorado, and have an extensive back ground in resistance strength training. I found love at first sight when practiced Yoga in November of 2015. The euphoric sensation of matching breathe with movement quickly became an addiction. Just two months later I was enrolled in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and have not looked back since. By immersing myself in the yoga community I have begun to accomplish my BHAG (Big Hairy Ambitious Goals) and am on track to accomplish my 10 year vision to change the world.
My teaching ranges from Ashtanga and Power Vinyasa, and Yin yoga as well. By being light, loving, and judgement free I create an environment where my students can authentically be themselves. When attending my class you can expect a variety of grounded flows that will challenge you both mentally and physically. Using music as my tool I aim to influence my students towards a moving meditation to help connect inward.
I have found both physical and mental benefits through the cadence of breath and movement and love to share my passion with others. I’m grateful to be apart of such a strong community and hope to see you in my class soon!
