Paula is a Colorado native having been raised on a peach orchard in Palisade. This cultivated a deep connection to being outdoors and appreciating the gifts of nature.
Her first yoga experience was in 2000 when she tried a Bikram class. It wasn't the class that sold her on yoga, but the teacher who influenced Paula to explore what else yoga had to offer and ultimately pursued her teacher training in Yin & Vinyasa styles of yoga. Paula's favorite part of being a yogi is there is a yoga for all ages and stages of life and feels like her practices is always evolving based on her own life's experiences.
Paula holds a masters degree in exercise physiology and teaches in the Human Performance & Sport department at Metro State University. She is a certified Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer, but her true education has come from raising four boys!
