Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Rachel Malo

"Earlier in my life I fractured a vertebrae.  I recovered to return to an active lifestyle, but still had residual pain and limited mobility. Then a life-changing mountain bike accident left me with debilitating back and hip pain. Through these traumas, I found yoga and learned to take a holistic approach to my own healing. This has given me a sincere desire to help others overcome their own personal challenges, whatever they may be."
 
Off the mat Rachel enjoys walking,hiking, reading, meditation and spending time with her family.

Stephanie Kelly

“I embarked on my yoga journey in the beginning of 2010, and have been actively engaged in my practice ever since. Driven by depression, and mundane day to day life routine, I summoned my out of shape chunky self, to search out something that might spark some hope in my life…..YOGA! I quickly realized that my mat was my sanctuary, and that my practice was providing me a platform to evolve, change, and eventually flourish. Self confidence, self discovery, self love, and happiness were just a few of the remarkable changes that began to take shape in my life.”

When she's not on her mat, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their 3 dogs. She loves being outdoors, working in her garden, tending her chickens, growing dahlias, riding her bike, and laughing out loud.

Sharlotte Fedewa

My yoga journey began in 2008 when I found out that my college dorm offered free yoga classes -- after the first class, I was hooked. I loved the way my body felt after doing yoga. Even to this day, nine years later, I still love how I can always come to my mat and melt away the world for an hour or two. Yoga helped me concentrate better in school and manage the stress of my job. On my 22nd birthday, August 29th, 2011, my life took a life transformational turn when I dragged my sister Katie, with me to Italy for an intensive 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training. After a month of waking up at 6 am for the Ashtanga primary series and learning that yoga was much more than just asana, I became a yoga teacher. My life was absolutely transformed, and I decided I wanted everyone to feel the way I felt when I practiced yoga.
 
Besides yoga, Sharlotte loves hanging out with her family, her daughter, Roslyn, son, Sage and her amazing husband, Joshua. In addition to hiking, hooping, cooking, crafting, and (her very favorite) traveling! She's also learning to play the ukulele.

Anne Suarez

"As an avid runner and fitness enthusiast, I walked into my first yoga class while on vacation in Colorado. I was curious to experience what yoga might be like. Could I become more flexible? Would I be able to move into the physical postures as instructed? It was during this yoga class within full view of Pike's Peak that something clicked from within my body--I felt connected in a profound way, breath, body, mind and spirit. As my yoga practice grew, I knew that I wanted to learn more about yoga. In 2014 I received my 200 HR RYT. Ever the student, I completed my 500 HR RYT with an emphasis on Yoga Therapy Level 1. Further studies include: Balanced Athlete Level One Certification, Yoga Nidra, Yoga of the Heart--Cardiac and Cancer Certification, and LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training for Depression and Anxiety. I am grateful to the many wonderful teachers and students that I have worked with--the gift of yoga is meant to be shared."
When she's not on her mat, Anne enjoys spending time with her family and Westie, traveling, exercising, hiking, reading and being a foodie. Walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela is her next major endeavor and dream. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” - Rumi
