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.  
Allie discovered yoga while training as a dancer in adolescence. She found it was a complimentary practice and helpful in grounding and reducing anxiety prior to preforming as well as increasing the body mind connection.

She completed her 200 hour training in Vinyasa and currently teaches at an addiction recovery center where she also works as a psychotherapist.

Join Allie for a fun and challenging class that will increase flexibility, strength and leave you feeling centered and rejuvenated!

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.

 
April completed Yoga teacher training (200 hours) with Catherine Deans at Halfmoon Yoga, and is also a member of the Yoga Alliance and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. April is Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki practitioner, vegan, dog lover, and outdoor enthusiast.

After experiencing the benefits of Yoga first hand April decided to complete teacher training in order to share the transformational practice of Yoga with others.

April’s classes are accessible to all skill levels, and beginners are encouraged to attend. April teaches Vinyasa Yoga and Restorative Yoga.

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!
Heidi joined the Cycling Yogi team in November 2016 as a cycling instructor. She has spent the last 30 years of her physical therapy practice working with children who have disabilities and their families to enhance community participation and independence. She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and Doctor of Philosophy in Pediatric Science degree from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. She is an Associate Professor at Regis University and has worked with community rehabilitation teams in the United States, Nicaragua and Peru.
 
Her work and life experiences have taught her to have gratitude for her health, family and community.  In her free time, she is skiing, cycling, running, swimming and spending time with her husband and 3 children. She is excited to share her love for health & wellness with the Cycling Yogi community.

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!

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.
