"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."

Anne Suarez instructs the following:
HOT! ~ A power vinyasa class emphasizing a dynamic flow of challenging poses. A vigorous practice-YOU WILL SWEAT! Monday 5:45 pm and Friday 8:45 am are 75 minute classes.
Recommended for experienced yogis, although beginners are welcome to participate keeping in mind modifications and pace for your level of activity. Bring a towel and water in a closed container.
This is a 50 minute class. WARM ~ This class is appropriate for all students seeking the benefits of a very relaxing, gentle, and nourishing practice. The soothing combination of gentle hatha and deep restorative work improves range of motion and joint mobility while reducing pain and the effects of stress. Students with injuries, arthritis, or other chronic conditions are welcome in these classes. Practitioners with limitations related to age or size as well as students with a more vigorous yoga practice will benefit from this practice. No prior yoga experience required.
Registration is capped at 15. Pre-registration is highly recommended.

October Book Club will be a discussion of A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder. Light refreshments will be served.
Monday October 22, 7:15 pm to 8:45 pm at Yoga Story.
$5 for members/$10 for non-members

Books not provided. We recommend you purchase and read the book before the meeting, but all are welcome to attend.
Lunch Time Flow
This is a 50 minute class. WARM ~ A slower vinyasa flow similar to hot class but with less intensity and heat. A good break in the middle of the day that won’t leave you a sweaty mess. You will be destressed and ready for the rest of your day. Great for all levels.
Pre–Holiday Relax & Restore Workshop Series
Practice the art of self-care by taking part in a three-week restorative workshop series. Each hour-long session will use guided meditation, breathing techniques and supported restorative postures to encourage deep relaxation.
Restorative yoga practice can promote a greater sense of well-being through the stimulation of the relaxation response. Research has also shown there are measureable benefits of restorative yoga such as enhanced circulation, decreased muscle tension, slower heart rate, metabolism, rate of breathing, and lower blood pressure.
Enhance your life with restorative yoga and join us for this series.
Thursday's - Oct 25, Nov 1 & Nov 8 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Registration is limited to 15. Cost $50 for all 3 sessions or $20 for a single session.
