Before opening a yoga and cycling studio, owner Sarah Russell was hit by a car while biking, seriously injuring her back. Sarah credits the rejuvenating power of yoga with saving her spinal cord, and her life. Today, she inspires others to meet their wellness goals through a lineup of mind- and body-nurturing classes.
Sarah and her brigade of enthusiastic instructors lead handfuls of classes each day for students of all fitness levels. The heart-pumping and vigorous cycling classes help patrons to improve their endurance while building muscle and strength. Complementing these physically demanding workouts are yoga classes for different skill levels that challenge the body in different ways, testing patrons' physical and mental focus through empowering posture series and healing stretches.
At over 100 locations throughout the country, CorePower Yoga (CPY) invites students to creative classes that meld movement, breath, heat, and music into entrancing routines to energize the body and mind. Signature CPY classes are taught by approachable certified yoga instructors who lead students through dynamic, Vinyasa-style flows with demonstration and verbal cues, helping pupils of all experience levels tone core muscles and cultivate balance. CPY also offers teacher training and lifestyle programs to empower students to become yoga instructors or to just advance their individual practice. During construction of all its new studios, CPY strives to use recycled content, install eco-friendly and efficient mechanical systems, and ensure that any waste created doesn't end up in landfills or just piled in Mr. Henderson's garage.
Teal, purple, and blue mats neatly line the wooden floor of Iyengar Yoga Center of Denver?s studio as another class begins. As always, the teachings of hatha yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar are relayed to students by one of the studio?s seasoned instructors, who are either certified or working toward certification through the Iyengar method. Several of these instructors have more than 30 years of experience. Iyengar yoga focuses on precision in physical alignment in order to bring the body and mind into balance.
Body Mind Energy Center's staff is experienced, but massage isn't the only technique they use to relieve their clients' pain. The staff also draws from Eastern healing techniques such as craniosacral, acupuncture, intuitive healing and reiki, a method of manipulating the body's energy in order to treat a wide range of maladies. The studio's repertoire includes acupuncture, teaching yoga, Pilates, foam roller, and holding Qigong workshops.
BYSE4 takes its name from the four types of classes offered at the studio. Barre classes build workouts around ballet moves. Yoga, meanwhile, uses Vinyasa poses to increase flexibility and strength of mind. Combining elements of different exercises, Sculpt pairs physically challenging yoga posses with light weight training, and Evolve classes focus on strength training, core strengthening, cardio, and plyometric movements.
