Yoga has been a huge part of Aubrey's life for over 16 years. She found the practice to be both freeing and a great discipline. Yoga became a productive and natural way of dealing with her back pain from scoliosis, and has given her strength where her structure is imbalanced. Aubrey aims to share her knowledge about the postures, alignment, and endless potential of the human body. The mind/body connection that she has gained through her yoga practice is something that enriches her life on a daily basis, and she love to share this gift with others. Aubrey enjoys teaching the power yoga format because she believes it unlocks the inner strength of students that they didn't know they had, and they leave feeling rejuvenated. For Aubrey, giving students a challenging physical workout and rounding it out with a mental and spiritual edge is the whole package.

Carole was born in Leadville and raised in southern Colorado. As a child she knew life was more than just what we see every day. Her love of cycling, skiing, and hiking developed her physical strength quite naturally. As a young adult she began tapping into her spiritual strengths through meditation, prayer and research. Her desire to deepen her beliefs began a life-long exploration of many different cultural and spiritual ideas. After a ski injury, she found herself limited in the physical activities she loved, and was faced with the challenges of growing mentally. She attended her first yoga class in 2009 and immediately recognized a path that might include all three strengths she had come to value - physical, mental, and spiritual. Through yoga, she found flexibility in all aspects of her life, gained strength in ways she never dreamed possible, and continues to deepen her spiritual practice and belief. Carole’s passion has been in teaching Power classes and she has also discovered the deep rewards Hatha has to offer.
Born in Virginia, raised on an island off the coast of New Jersey, she left for Colorado in 1998. She was first introduced to the physical practice at the age of 18 and hasn’t stopped seeking the higher consciousness of what yoga has to offer.

Chelsea Perri started practicing yoga in 2007 while teaching in Washington, DC. As a cyclist, runner and athlete, she was drawn initially to the physical aspect of the practice and in the way of many yogis came to love and rely upon the emotional and spiritual growth that comes through the practice. After difficult days in the classroom, and now the office, yoga provides a way to center, bring peace, find joy and foster the stillness and introspectiveness that come with meditation.
Yoga is when all of the activities of the mind are focused in one intended direction. Through her practice, Chelsea has found yoga off of the mat as well in her art-making, singing, running, and many other daily activities. She hopes to help others find that joy in their practice as well. Having completed her 200 hour teacher training at ONE Yoga, she is honored to teach, and to continue learning, alongside her teachers in the wonderful ONE community.

Motivated by the political activism of Sean Corne and Dr. Chelsea Roberts, the story-telling of Buffy Barefoot, the alignment-focus of Krystal Chesnutt, and Laurie Knight’s commitment to yoga as a path to heal trauma, CJ is passionate about helping her students find their own yogic path. CJ teaches Vinyasa, Power, and Hatha to music with a strong, grounding bassline.
I was born and raised in Colorado, and have an extensive back ground in resistance strength training. I found love at first sight when practiced Yoga in November of 2015. The euphoric sensation of matching breathe with movement quickly became an addiction. Just two months later I was enrolled in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and have not looked back since. By immersing myself in the yoga community I have begun to accomplish my BHAG (Big Hairy Ambitious Goals) and am on track to accomplish my 10 year vision to change the world.
My teaching ranges from Ashtanga and Power Vinyasa, and Yin yoga as well. By being light, loving, and judgement free I create an environment where my students can authentically be themselves. When attending my class you can expect a variety of grounded flows that will challenge you both mentally and physically. Using music as my tool I aim to influence my students towards a moving meditation to help connect inward.
I have found both physical and mental benefits through the cadence of breath and movement and love to share my passion with others. I'm grateful to be apart of such a strong community and hope to see you in my class soon!

She is truly an alchemy of flow and form. She loves to bring movement, alignment and energy to all her classes.
To narrow down the seemingly countless benefits yoga has enriched Deb’s life with is virtually impossible. Self-acceptance, physical and mental strength, clarity, patience, grace, fitness, anxiety control, trust, confidence, and fun are just a few.
As a lifelong athlete and competitive gymnast, she yearned for a physical means to connect with her body through breath, focus and movement. Mission accomplished. Deb feels her most light hearted, beautiful and true during her asana and meditation practices. As a huge advocate for listening and respecting where your own body (and mind for that matter) is each and every day, she hopes to share that with her students through a challenging, lively and compassionate physical practice with focus towards nurturing and empowering her students to begin to explore the breath, physical, mental connection within their own bodies and minds…and hopefully providing a few laughs and some good tunes along the way!
Yoga struck him as awkward at first, a place where people went to stretch. However, his assumptions were quickly proven false. Drake found the yoga practice a means to tap into the inner dimensions of his life and he is constantly humbled every time he steps onto his mat. “Yoga has the capability to strip the false layers of oneself that many of us project as our own, and as we move inward into the path of self-discovery, we become witnesses to our own Divine potential.” Drake became a qualified Reiki practitioner in 2011 and finished his 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training in May 2012. Together, these healing arts have assisted him along a magnificent journey filled with miraculous blessings. Drake teaches his classes with the intention of drawing awareness inward in order to expand beauty outward. He believes that everyone can achieve peace and harmony in their lives by tapping into their highest wisdom & strength on the mat in order to compassionately unveil the infinite Universe that lives within.

My name is Jenn Kirkpatrick, and I have been teaching yoga in the South Denver and Parker areas since the Spring of 2008. My experience and trainings include Power Vinyasa, Hot Yoga variations, prenatal yoga, alignment based yoga and meditation practices. I am ver grateful for all of my teachers and feel blessed to have trained with and been influenced by some incredible women, including Christina Sell, Gioconda Parker and Michelle Marchildon. I believe that yoga is not a race or a competition, but rather, a place to move, breathe and plug back in to all of the possibilities within who you are - it is about the "becoming." As a mother of three young women, and a lifelong athlete, I believe that both the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga are a vehicle in one's own "becoming." By choosing to receive growth while on our path of practice, we can find the challenging, yet compassionate space needed to support the "becoming" of our best self.

Matt found his connection to yoga at ONE Yoga Denver.
Matt played basketball in college. And for many years afterward he played pick-up ball in Denver area gyms. In his forties he found that the bruising contact from all those games was starting to take a toll. His body felt tired, stiff and worn-out.
He began to attend hot Power Yoga classes over his lunch-hour to burn through the stress of his workday. And he discovered that yoga was not only a great workout, it also brought about a transformative sort of peace and resilience to his body and his mind. He was hooked!
Over the past couple of years, Matt's become an evangelist, of sorts, for the transformative power of yoga, especially for men. And he is now a 200 HR RYT teacher.
Matt Goebel and his wife, Karey, now own ONE Yoga. They hope that you can find a similar peace and vitality here at ONE Yoga, too.

Tapping into her experience in corporate America, Natasha has the ability to sense the stress and frustrations of daily life for her students and guide them into a calm, peaceful state by the end of class.
In 2009 I took my first yoga class and had an immediate passionate connection as a compliment to my dance career. My longtime life passion has been performing, teaching, and choreographing modern dance. The similarities between dance and yoga in regard to energy channeling, breath control, and alignment are very kindred indeed. The more I practiced, the more I was astounded by the access that yoga offered to the mind, body, and spirit connection and how emotionally and energetically therapeutic it can be. I have always found my yoga mat to be a safe, sacred portal to release that which does not serve me and to bring clarity to that which is calling and guiding me. My goal is to provide my students the same environment to allow you reveal and empower your true natural self. My classes have a creative flow to feed my choreographic passions, a deep connection to breath and pacing, and a solid focus on alignment and protecting the body.

Zaphne’s love for yoga grew during times of its absence. When she wasn’t practicing she would notice that things as simple as sitting in an easy pose were not as easy and overall life was less peaceful. In 2010, yoga became a part of her daily life.
