A dream turned reality, finding our breathe and movement in the park!
Ever have a dream of an event, you make it happen and it turned out to be a success?!? My vision and dream for Downdog and Donuts was that!!
Nothing better than getting out in the Colorado weather and getting a yoga class in during Bohemian Nights and New West Fest in beautiful Downtown Fort Collins,CO. Nestled in the shade of some huge trees outside our public library is where I held the class. With the sounds of kids playing in the background, music playing about 300ft away, people walking around the class, I encouraged the class to find their breathe and focus on that.
Give yourself permission to take time to breathe, to live life, to give, to love, to reflect, to be present, AND to just be.
I love leading a vinyasa flow that challenges the body, strengthens the body from the core outward, works on balance and increases flexibility and always bring awareness to breathe! This flow even more than usual since the theme was focused on breathe. So many times we forget about breathing during out workout or even parts of life. Breathe is our life force and will help get you through many moments.
The quality of our breath expresses our inner feelings.

What I LOVE even more about these types of events, is it brings the community together! Growing a community through yoga and fitness is my passion. Nothing makes my heart happy than getting a group of people doing yoga! No matter your background everyone can find benefit from yoga! At my class we had momma’s there with lil babies, my daughter was there 3.5yr old doing as much of the class, to college age, and older, it a a force that brings people together for one LOVE, which is YOGA!
My Fav 5 Benefits of Yoga:

I would love to connect with you, if you are interested in learning more about yoga! I teach at 2 studios in Northern Colorado and would love to have you in class! I teach at Om House Yoga in Loveland at Centerra, and Yoga Pod in Fort Collins mid-town near the Foothills Mall. I also do private yoga for businesses, parties, or events and would love to share my love for yoga with YOU!
I couldn’t of pulled this event off without the help from a tribe of people and companies;
Peace, Love and Little Donuts – providing their delicious fresh hot little donuts
Starbucks- Horsetooth and College – providing amazing hot coffee
Rock Fan Sound– did an amazing job with the sound system
Thanks to everyone who came out; my friends, my family and new yogis!
