Total Core Workout - 30min burn
Never underestimate the importance of a strong core! Whether it's holding you upright as you're reading this or powering you through long climbs and tough workouts, your body's core enables pretty much every move you make. This class targets each section of your core through a variety of exercises designed to strengthen your abdomen and back muscles while increasing your flexibility and balance.
The goal is not to experience extreme flexibility but rather mobility (free movement) to allow you to train injury free, recover from long training sessions and increase your mind-body connection as we learn about how breath can influence so much of your movement. We, as athletes, ask our bodies to perform regularly at a high level. Learn to take this 50 minutes to give back to your body and show it some love!
This is an all levels class with an energetic, flowing series of interconnected postures synchronized with breath. In a Vinyasa class, students awaken their inner strength, energy, flexibility, and balance in a fun atmosphere. Every practice is intended to be a complete experience, leaving you centered, grounded, and refreshed.

Kim’s yoga journey began when she took her first Tae-Kwon Do class at the age of seven. She became a Tae-Kwon Do instructor at eleven, and quickly discovered her love for teaching. After well over a decade of practice, Kim had gained both mental discipline and physical awareness that helped her when she stepped into her first yoga class in 2010. At the end of that class she walked to the front desk and bought a membership; she was in love! She found a freedom in simply being with herself, in actively setting aside the stresses of life. In early 2013, Kim decided it was time to combine her love of yoga with her love of teaching. She finished her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training that March at Elan Yoga and Fitness in Fort Collins, Colorado. In 2015 she moved to Auckland, New Zealand, deciding to get her 500 Hour Teacher Training Certificate with Jayayoga.
Kim encourages each student to tune in to their personal experience and invite whatever they need into their practice, finding a balance between effort and easefulness in each posture. Her goal is always to lead a class that meets each student wherever they are in their own journey.
Shelby began practicing yoga in autumn of 2012 and fell in love with all things yoga after her very first class. After strengthening her practice for about a year and a half, an instructor she admired very much sparked Shelby’s interest in Teacher Training, and she was enrolled in just a few weeks. Shelby graduated from the CorePower Yoga 200-hr Hot Power Fusion Teacher Training Program in the spring of 2014 – the same time she graduated from CSU – and was hired as an instructor a few months later.
Shelby’s path as a yoga instructor started slow, as she taught just one or two classes a week. However, with an open heart and a lot of manifestation, she has continued to be presented with more opportunities to teach, take, and learn more about yoga. She now teaches various styles and is always seeking more education and opportunity.
Shelby believes that yoga has the power and ability to be whatever a student needs it to be in any given moment, and she’s witnessed that power in her own life.
Rachel is a student studying psychology at Colorado State University. She is involved in a variety of extracurricular activities including being a member of a Jewish sorority, volunteering for a cognitive psychology research lab and an active member of the CSU rock climbing team.
Rachel’s yoga experience started 5 years ago. At the time she had just been diagnosed with a rare nervous system condition that made everyday living a challenge. So she wasn’t sure if yoga was meant for her. But after attending only a couple of classes she quickly realized that was not the case. It was amazing to have found a judgement free setting that fostered strength in both physical and mental aspects while simultaneously encouraging students to take things at their own pace.
Fast forward two years later when Rachel was introduced to rock climbing upon starting her Freshman year of college. After climbing only a couple of times she joined her collegiate rock climbing team and found that her background in yoga made her a more confident rock climber. Today, Rachel wants to use yoga as an outlet to help students of all levels gain confidence in themselves as well as in their yoga and climbing abilities.

When Pam isn’t teaching fitness or climbing, you can usually find her hiking, cuddling with her dog, and/or cheering for the Pats (sorry, Broncos fans!).
Kenyon has been practicing yoga for 8 years. It became a physical outlet for him as he transitioned away from organized sports. Initially, the physical benefits attracted him the most as he began to see changes in his body. It was also a perfect balance for the other passions he was developing in rock climbing and mountain biking. Eventually, the philosophy intrigued him when he continued to dive deeper into the practice. As the physical benefits helped to relieve pain in his body, the philosophy he learned helped to shape his perspective on life.
In 2011, he traveled to India to attend a 200 hour Hatha yoga teacher training. He has been teaching since then and has developed a love for bringing yoga to as many people as he can. He has experience teaching Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin styles of yoga. Throughout his classes, Kenyon focuses on finding balance, proper alignment, and the development of breath while moving mindfully with the body. He currently teaches Vinyasa Flow, Yin, and Hatha style classes in Fort Collins.
Megan recently moved to Colorado from Venice Beach, Ca after craving a retreat from the city. Her love for the mountains, rock climbing, and a more adventurous environment landed her in Fort Collins. Before Venice, Megan had been backpacking around the world for three years. While abroad, she immersed herself in many different cultures where she learned alternative styles of healing, Yoga, and spiritual practices. As she continued to travel, she was inspired to build her own practice, taking what worked for her from various ancient and contemporary traditions. Megan has been trained in guided meditation, sound therapy, energy healing, and of course, Yoga. Her intention is to share with her community the healing benefits of the mind/body/spirit connection through breath, movement, and sound. She hopes to integrate these traditions into people’s busy lives to help them find not only peace and relaxation, but a sense of personal empowerment.
