She is currently working towards a degree in Yoga Studies and Psychology at Naropa University and plans to continue on to become an IAYT (Yoga Therapist) for mental health.
I began my yoga experience at a Bikram Yoga Studio in my early twenties while still in college. At the time, I was inspired to continue practicing yoga, mainly for the physical benefits. Many years later, I underwent yoga teacher training with Rebecca Sathre of URU Yoga & Beyond and began the journey of connecting to my true self. A shift occurred in my practice and I was able to give myself permission to be authentic, love the way I am, and connect with others more openly, consciously, and deeply. Yoga has taught me so much, and I hope yoga can do the same for you. Om Shanti.

Lokah samasta sukhino bavantu. May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may our thoughts, words, and actions contribute to their happiness and freedom for all, Namaste.

I started my exploration of Yoga in early 1990s while living in England. My interest in Yoga grew rapidly and eventually after several years of studies, I have completed requirements for certifications to become a Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist but learning continues.
I have learned from my studies and my own practice that true empowerment can only be achieved when the approach to Yoga is modified based on our needs. Movement from posture to posture has many elements, each affecting each one of us in a different way. I emphasize this uniqueness to help my students to find their own path on this journey. I teach gentle, traditional Yoga, focusing on the deep inner experience where the physical body alignment of each asana is just a beginning, a door which leads to deeper exploration of all associated sensations (physical, emotional, spiritual). My classes enable the students to reconnect with their bodies, to become aware of life of their body and of its wisdom and to develop understanding of one’s abilities and limitations to make the practice more effective and beneficial in support of the spiritual path and physically and mentally healthy life. I welcome everyone who comes to my classes, without exceptions, as I know that Yoga is good for everyone and that everyone is good for Yoga. We are all where and how we should be and that is a perfect starting point in one’s individual journey of Yoga, so come embark with us on this journey, at the Elevated Yoga Studio!

Born in Mexico City and raised in a small Kansas town. I moved to beautiful Colorado in 2015 after spending five Winters in the Minnesota tundra! I have been a student of Yoga for many years, and obtained my 200-hour RYT certification from the amazing TT course at Elevated Yoga Studio in 2018.
My approach to teaching is compassionate and gentle. I teach humbly and with deep respect to each individuals’ personal practice. I focus on the breath, letting go and letting be. I believe that each practice allows us to connect deeply with ourselves, and it allows us to grow and transform from within so we can find our peace.
Off the mat I live a very active lifestyle. I do HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and practice the beautiful art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. I am an avid traveler, and I love spending time with my wonderful husband, step-son and our fur baby, Dublin.
Here are our teachers and therapists - we will be adding more special teachers soon!
Sue Young has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. She is a first generation Kaiut yoga instructor studying directly with Francisco Kaiut, the founder of the Kaiut lineage. As a world class ultra endurance tri-athlete, Sue has gained a very rare and direct understanding of the mind-body connection. She believes that going deeply into the body, and ultimately through it, is how lasting inner peace is achieved. This is a wisdom that is available to all, and informs her Kaiut teaching. Sue is a world traveler, joyful mother, ex-fortune 500 executive, and an exuberant, but sadly lacking in skill, karaoke singer.
