Erica Porter

Growing up in Colorado, Erica has always loved getting out into the outdoors. In 2006 she started cycling after spending years playing team sports trying to find a new sport she would love. She started into yoga after finding that she was having back and shoulder problems from cycling. Learning that by combining a yoga practice with her cycling she was able to strengthen as well as improve her posture and balance on a bike. 6 years ago after a bad bike accident on her bike she decided to go beyond traditional physical therapy and immerse herself in yoga trainings in Costa Rica. Through her time there she was able to regain her strength and functionality.
 
Her journey through 4 yoga trainings (Interdisciplinary yoga, Children’y yoga, Restorative yoga and Innerquest) taught her the use of modifications and new postures to not only regain her functionality but also grow her practice and help others. She has enjoyed the challenge of working with people with injuries and disabilities as well as high school sports teams to help them minimize their risks of injury through improved strength and flexibility.
 
She loves biking, hiking and other adventures when she’s not in the studio!

Janelle Worthington

Janelle has practiced yoga for over 14 yrs, which has played an integral role in her life’s journey. Growing up, her yogi aunt and uncle were her inspiration. Yoga has helped her find balance, increase awareness and manage chronic pain. She has a passion for discovery and adventure and when she is not doing yoga, you will find her enjoying the great outdoors, traveling and exploring ancient ruins (or at least wishing she was), cooking, crocheting or making jewelry. This same passion fuels her desire to deepen her understanding and practice of yoga.

Janelle has a Masters degree in Public Health (Global Health) working to help people create a lifestyle of balance and health with education and wellness programs that address nutrition, quitting tobacco, stress management, weight loss and physical activity.

Janelle grew up in California, Colorado and New Mexico before heading to Washington for college.

In 2013 she and her partner relocated from Seattle to Denver and she decided it was time to do what she had always dreamed of doing, become a yoga teacher.

In March 2014 she graduated from Heritage College Yoga Training School & Studio in Denver. She looks forward to sharing her passion and excitement for yoga with you!

Heidi Pachner

Heidi appreciates the mind body connection that both barre and yoga have to offer. She also believes that fitness is for everyone and it is not a one size fits all undertaking. Heidi invites potential clients to embrace barre and yoga and the benefits that follow.

Paula Stephens

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!

Jen Feehan

Jen’s journey to yoga began when a friend of hers invited her to a free community class. She found herself coming back week after week. Her body, her mind, and her attitude began to change. Jen loved how yoga created a space to relieve her anxiety and also gave her the physical strength and mental courage to do things she never thought were possible.

Her yoga teachers’ passion for the many layers of yoga sparked Jen’s curiosity and encouraged her to pursue the 200-hour yoga teacher training through The Cycling Yogi.

Jen strives to create a class atmosphere where everyone laughs when they fall and smile when a pose is challenging. She loves teaching classes aimed at improving not only flexibility and strength, but also mindfulness and courage. She encourages students to ask questions throughout the practice and during adjustments to promote community, learning, and a safer practice.

Outside of yoga, Jen can usually be found with her head in a book, cooking delicious food, painting, or outside indulging in the fresh Rocky Mountain air. One of her goals this year is to successfully complete National Novel Writing Month.

Patsy Juarez

Patsy, the owner of The Cycling Yogi and a Colorado native, grew up in the mountains of Colorado leading an active lifestyle. She enjoyed lifting weights and Rollerblading almost daily. Working the evening shift at the hospital, her philosophy was to “play” at the beginning of her day when she was energized and to earn a paycheck while she “recovered”. She moved to Denver in 1996 and earned her B.S. in Business Management from the University of Colorado. She is passionate about wellness and nutrition and enjoys studying these topics. Looking for a new workout, she discovered yoga. She attended classes for the exercise and found herself driving home afterward in a state of bliss. With regular practice she experienced less stress and back pain.
 
After falling in love with cycle/yoga, she began her training in the Fall of 2009 with the intent of opening her own studio to bring yoga to her community.  She has since been trained in yoga sculpt and is certified in TRX, Barre, Tabata Bootcamp and a 2nd 200 hr yoga certification.
 
Patsy enjoys teaching new students and gets excited when a student accomplishes something they didn't think they could do.  

Amy Ludwigson

Hooked since the very first time she came to the mat, Amy can’t imagine her life without yoga. Her practice has been a great complement to her active lifestyle, relieving aches and pains after a day of playing outdoors and has given her the physical and mental strength to progress further in all her endeavors. Most importantly, it has taught her to trust her intuition and live a life more true to her heart.

Amy teaches vinyasa and restorative yoga. In her vinyasa classes, she guides students through a challenging series of postures, connecting the breath with every movement, while encouraging self-acceptance, and providing students the opportunity to make new discoveries by stepping outside of their comfort zone. Her therapeutic restorative classes include passive, prop supported poses, meditation, relaxing music, and a bit of Thai yoga massage to gently open up the body and calm the mind, relieving both physical and emotional stress.

Amy graduated from George Mason with a BA in psychology, received her 200 hour teacher certification & restorative training through Qi Yoga, and kids yoga training through Yoga for Young Warriors. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and is currently pursuing her Thai Yoga Massage certification.

Amy seeks to carry the awareness and gratitude she’s found through her yoga practice into all her experiences. She loves early morning sunrises, the mountains, and especially loves spending time with her wonderful family and friends. Her favorite activities include skiing, hiking, cycling, reading, listening to music, watching the faces of her kids light up on a ball field, and cuddling with her dog Daisy.

 

A series of flowing poses linked together with breath. This class is designed to open the body through movement while quieting the mind with breath. Working together, they create a meditation in motion.
