Yoga found me in 2011 and instantly helped me create confidence and stability not only within the views I had of myself and my body but also in the world I was creating around me.
I found Container Collective in Lakewood Colorado in 2016. There I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training through Baptiste Institute's Expand Your Power.
As a yoga instructor, I am committed to creating an open energetic environment for my students to creat space for their truest form and learn to love and express their breath, bodies, and voice.
As a being, I am committed to being an avid participant in nature, and sharing my love and light with everything and everyone, especially my daughter and 2 puppies. As well as learning how to love and not urish myself and share that knowledge with those around me.

Hannah has been practicing yoga for 6+ years. She recently graduated Minnesota State University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She has always found passion, joy, and life in movement. After dancing competitively through high school and into college she retired her leaps for sun salutations and so began her love of yoga. Although yoga for Hannah began simply as an asana practice, it quickly developed into so much more. She began taking Ashtanga yoga classes and fell in love with idea that yoga can be not only a physical workout, but a way of life. She was first certified in 2016 as a 200-hour RYT in Hot Vinyasa Yoga. Two years later she traveled to Mysore, India where she completed her training as a 300-hour RYT in Ashtanga Yoga. Hannah has been teaching for two years. She has experience teaching Vinyasa, Bikram, Ashtanga, and Restorative Yoga classes. It is her dream to combine her love of yoga, pranayama, meditation and background in psychology to help people live their healthiest, happiest, and most thoughtful lives.

Laura first started practicing yoga while working as a civil engineer in Houston, TX. She then relocated to Denver, Colorado and eventually Zurich, Switzerland. Her yoga relationship deepened when a friend introduced her to an Ashtanga Primary Series class while living in Switzerland, love at first breath! It was at this point that she decided to focus her studies on the Ashtanga Yoga Tradition. Laura then moved to Golden, Colorado and continues to further her Ashtanga studies under the guidance of prominent teacher Richard Freeman in Boulder, Colorado. Her interest in expanding the body-mind connection led her to study Zen Meditation which she continues to practice. Her teaching style strongly focuses on imparting the soothing and therapeutic effects of Ashtanga yoga to make the practice fun and accessible to students of all levels.

Inge is a certified ParaYoga teacher whose passion is to help people embody their divinity through yoga, the mindful union of body, breath and consciousness. Her classes offer an enlivening flow combining asana (poses) with pranayama (breath and energy work) followed by deep relaxation and meditation. The focus is to harness prana, the lifeforce, to create balance, promote healing and, ultimately, awaken to the inner teacher. Inge came to ParaYoga, a Himalayan tantric hatha yoga system, after many years of spiritual seeking in order to deepen her meditation practice. She found so much more: a beloved and trusted teacher, a personal relationship with the Divine Mother, a sense of belonging to an ancient lineage, the fellowship of like-minded spiritual seekers, and restored physical vitality that had been depleted by cancer treatment. She is most grateful to have been initiated into the Sri Vidya lineage by her teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker, and to have visited the Sri Vidya shrine in India with his teacher, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait of the Himalayan Institute. Inge also is trained by Judith Hanson Lasater as a Relax and Renew restorative yoga teacher, and in ParaYoga Nidra, the practice of enlightened sleep. In addition to teaching yoga and meditation, Inge is a licensed clinical psychotherapist and Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner who specializes in the treatment of disorders of extreme stress. She promotes a practice of embodied psychology and embodied spirituality. Rather than transcending the human, she wants to help her students embody the divine in human form. Her favorite quote by Swami Rama of the Himalayas is: “The goal of sadhana (practice) is not to see God or to become divine. You are already divine. To experience your divine nature, first you have to become human…the human within you will pull the divine toward you.”
