Thai Yoga Massage - Need a little assisted stretching? Thai Yoga Massage is just that. Reputed to have been developed by the Buddhas own private physician thousands of years ago, this style of massage is done clothed (in loose yoga-type clothing) and does not utilize oils. It is surprisingly effective and relaxing and can be done either on a massage table or, traditionally, on the floor. Contact me, Carrie, 720 223 8188 to book your massage now! $45 / hour

Private Yoga sessions - Every body is unique. Traditionally yoga was taught one-on-one with  a teacher. Group asana (poses) classes are a fairly recent Western spin on yoga. A private session can really help kick start your practice  by designing a program that focuses on your specific needs. A one hour private session with a written  and illustrated program is available by appointment. For $25 you will get a private half hour session + written program to take home.

Yoga Music - Some students have asked me to suggest some ‘yoga music’.  Im some ways, I’m new to this idea. I originally studied yoga in the Iyengar tradition and my teachers did not use music during class. And of course, yogis did not have DVD players 5000 years ago. But today, we tend to think of music as being an integral part of the typical yoga class. Music is incredibly powerful for setting a mood and calming the mind, so why not?  As Patanjali says in his yoga sutras (1.2)”The main purpose of yoga is to calm the thought waves.”  So use music as part of your home asana practice, meditation and relaxation. Some people and even like to fall asleep to some calming tunes.
Today Yoga music is its own huge genre that can  include ‘World Music’, ‘Fusion’, and ‘Electronic Kirtan’ (Kirtonica) as well as the more traditional mantra chanting and kirtan. Here is a great website to learn and experience yoga music:
One artist that I really like is Deva Premal, a German-born yogini, vocalist and classically trained musician. Pandora even has a ‘Deva Premal Radio’ channel:
