Jen Valerio

Jen is enthusiastic about promoting health, wellness, and a sense of community through yoga. Over the 8 years that she has been practicing yoga, Jen developed a deep appreciation for the benefits yoga offers for a sense of well-being.

While finishing her Master’s in public health, she decided it was time to deepen her practice and share yoga with others. She completed her 200-hr teacher training at Elan in the spring of 2017. Since becoming certified she has sought opportunities to promote the functional and therapeutic benefits within the community. When she isn’t on her mat, Jen can likely be found with her dog enjoying life in Colorado.

Jill Mollenhauer

Jill was first introduced to yoga when she took her first 200-hr training in 2008. She’s been teaching ever since. Learning how our bodies are all different and keeping her students safe on the mat is her passion. Jill teaches with the understanding that yoga is for every BODY, whether it’s flow or deep held stretches, no matter what age, we all benefit from the practice. Her passion for yoga has taken her to trainings in prenatal, kids and yoga for cancer as well. After teaching for almost 10 years, her desire to keep learning only grows deeper and she counts herself lucky to share that passion with others through the community that is yoga.

Jamie Wheeler

Jamie has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. She experienced the healing aspects of yoga after her 2nd marathon as her neck was in bad shape. Yoga forces her to slow down, breathe and experience the healing that comes with breath. Yoga allows bodies to gain strength through length…a lesson she carries into other areas of life.

She aspires to push the envelope whether she’s setting goals for herself or challenging her students in the studio. Her mantra is that the growth we are capable of is within our grasp, we just have to be willing to be uncomfortable to achieve it. Long bike rides and runs are Jamie’s idea of a good time, and she finds the greatest joy being part of a client’s “Aha!” moment.e…

Kelli Glaze

Kelli began her yoga journey in 2007, ultimately finding her passion in yin yoga. She is passionate about sharing the magic ingredients of yin; time, stillness of mind and body, and finding your first edge! She emphasizes that every body is unique. Kelli is a registered nurse and loves to weave her knowledge of the human body into her classes and workshops.

Kelli strongly encourages self inquiry through meditation and breathwork in postures and an exploration attending to intention. Yin yoga is an inward journey; not just a physical practice. Yin promotes organ health and restoration with the purpose of attaining an optimal level of wellness. Kelli has studied internationally and nationally, with Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers, and at the Depok Chopra center.

Izzy Gingerich

Izzy came to yoga seeking relief from an injury and has not looked back. After cultivating her personal practice, Izzy earned her 200 hour certification from Elan yoga, finding a deeper understanding of the benefits yoga offers for every body. More than the physical aspects of yoga, she finds strength in the mental practice by using breath and mindfulness to be present on and off the mat. This is something she tries to weave into each of her classes. Since earning her certification she has been teaching vinyasa style classes part time.
