Colorado School of Iyengar Yoga, the longest operating yoga studio in Colorado (29 years), and probably the multi-state area, must close its doors October 31.  The shopping center, our home for twenty-four years, is being demolished to make way for yet another apartment/retail monstrosity…oops, I meant development.

The GOOD NEWS is that we have found a wonderful, nearby Iyengar studio that is welcoming those teachers who want to continue!  Eleanor, Kelly(who will be Kelly Anne on the schedule) , Kevin, Lauren, Dawn(Fit For Life), and I will squeeze some classes into their schedule.  Dawn’s classes are included in your yoga bundle!  Kelly Moore and Steven Norber, long-time friends and associates, are making it possible to bring our students to a beautiful studio at 1776 S. Jackson St., Suite 810, which is two blocks west of Colorado Blvd., and one block south of Mexico(just south of the large Safeway complex). When you come, please be aware of the red and white “Visitor Parking” signs, or park on Jackson St.  Their website, LivingYogaDenver.com will give you all of the information you need.  Click on November to see all classes, and use a credit card(!!!) to buy classes in advance. This will make your first class sign-in a snap.  You may also pay before class, but PLEASE allow plenty of time.  You will feel right at home, as we are taking many of our props with us.  Yes, your favorite pretty bolster will be there!

I will keep this site a bit longer, so, if you have unanswered questions, contact me from here.  This,”semi-retirement” for me means more time to put together the workshops you have been wanting-another Fix Your Feet, Pelvic Floor For Women, Pelvic Balancing for the Unbalanced, and more.

We look forward to seeing you in our new home!

Nasmaste, Y’all!  Jeanne Ann

No More Thursday Noon Class

Unfortunately, Nancy’s Thursday 12-1 pm class is no more!  Her wonderful “real” job doing floral arrangements for large companies is keeping her too busy, as everyone who sees her creations clamors for them.  We will miss her, but will still see her in Thursday 9:15 class, I hope!

Using dumbbells and body weight, Dawn’s goal is to help people gain strength and mobility as well as stay young, healthy and independent as they age. The classes are fun, informative and always different. Great care is taken with technique and there are always alternative exercises for people with limitations.

Workshop Requests Requested!!!

Since the three “Fix Your Feet” workshops I gave in October and November, there have been several requests for another!  In order to accommodate the most students, I’d love to know if I should do a Saturday, for a change, or a Sunday in late January.  Please respond on the “Contact Us” button, and I’ll save your emails to let you know as soon as I know!

I have also had requests for “A Strong & Healthy Pelvic Floor For Every Woman,” “Neck and Shoulders,” ” Fixing Pelvic Imbalance and Its Impact on Scoliosis,” and “Knees.” Please let me know if you are interested in any of these, as well.  My twenty-five years of both teaching yoga and therapeutic bodywork have allowed me to see thousands of bodies and given me lots of experience in helping folks re-align their joints and strengthen muscles that hold us steady.  I’m not a FIXER, but a FACILITATOR, teaching YOU how to fix yourself!  Take your healthcare back into your own hands!     Jeanne Ann

Change Happens!

Change isn’t necessarily “good” or “bad;’ but sometimes that is not immediately obvious.  After twenty-two years in our present location, the buildings have been sold, and the new owners thought raising the rent an outrageous percentage was a good idea.  In order to stay, we have relinquished our “Small Studio” as of November 1.  We are working to squeeze all of the classes and teachers into what is now the ONLY studio, so you will see changes in the class schedule.  We hope to return a couple of Fundamental Series, as well as Fundamentals Crash Courses by the new year, as well as some other, interesting workshops.  Stay tuned!

Fix Your Feet x 2!

 Now you have two opportunities to fix your feet with Jeanne Ann!

Jeanne Ann's Feet

Like a lot of people, Jeanne Ann discovered Iyengar Yoga after several foot issues and unnecessary surgeries. She found that the poses helped her feet and relieved her pain. Over the years (20+!) she developed a program that specifically targets common foot issues such as bunions, fallen arches, plantar fasciitis and debilitating pain due to weight gain.

The Fix Your Feet program is designed with the focus is on you and your foot issues. Jeanne Ann will spend time with you and educate you on how your feet work and give you methods and tips on how to fix and problems. Plus, the two weeks between classes will give you time to practice and formulate questions.

Shoulder Workshop at Park Hill Yoga by Jeanne Ann

Our first SHOULDER Workshop at Park Hill Yoga was a huge success!  Fifteen students of various levels and issues(not EVERYONE had issues!) attended on a lovely Sunday afternoon.  Due to the clamor of many students, we will soon plan a PART TWO.

If you missed the first one, attendance at the second will be fine, as there will be some quick review.  Stay posted!


Sunday, May 18, 1:30-4:00 pm, I will present a workshop to understand and heal shoulder issues.  It will also be good for yoga teachers and anyone who is a yoga practitioner, as it will help make sense of actions needed in many asanas.  There will be a “brief as I can make it” anatomy review, an explanation of shoulder motions, and mostly practical applications to types of poses.  If you have an MRI summary to explain particular issues, please bring them.  Call Deb at 303-377-3508 to register.
