There, he studied yoga as a holistic system that included: asana, pranayama, meditation, bandha/mudra, fasting, periods of silence and early morning dips in the Ganges river.  The trip introduced him to spiritual practice and set the tone for his adult life.

He went on to be a student of the Iyengar method for eight years; and a dedicated student of Richard Freeman, Tias Little and Rod Stryker; completing multiple yoga teacher training courses along the way.

In 2001 he became a full time yoga teacher, accumulating over 10,000 hours of experience instructing workshops, retreats, and YTTs. Additionally, he is a professor of yoga at Metro College, founder of Denver Yoga Underground.

Lauren Bleck

Lauren Bleck

After earning her degree in college, Lauren moved around living in a van and riding bicycles. After a deeply vulnerable heart break, she felt her heart being pulled towards India. Lauren went on a life-changing spiritual quest at the age of 25, which led her to a 200-hour Yoga Alliance training in the heartland of India, where her vigilant Guru reminded her of her essence. She felt the energy there and found out that she connected deeply with Reiki.
She continued on with an RYT-500 through Yoga Alliance, with a focus on Kundalini energy. Being that music connects human souls together, Lauren has been teaching Harmonium and Mantra chanting to yoga instructors via zoom since early 2020.

Her goal on this earth is to bring that Divine energy from India to each of her students.

My name is Maggie Lightner and I’m an Advanced Yoga Educator and Teacher based in Denver, Colorado. I was lucky enough to discover yoga at the age of 14 while playing competitive club soccer. Although I originally fell in love with yoga for its physical benefits, over time the deeper practices of yoga began to broaden the experience of my faith and spirituality. Today, as a teacher, I aim to help my students reconnect to the truth that they are a multidimensional being: body, mind and spirit. My classes aim to promote a synergistic relationship between ancient yogic wisdom, pranayama and modern postural practices to promote balance and healing for the whole being. A mantra I aim to live by is “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I look forward to caring for and supporting you on and off your mat!

Sigrid Strebe

Sigrid Strebe

Owner of Transitions Yoga, Transitions Yoga at Balancing Goat & Transitions School of Yoga

Sigrid began her yoga journey in 2001 after being recruited by friends who were trying to gather enough people to get a class started. Barely able to touch her toes and never really “exercising” before, she took the bait and joined. Little did she know how Yoga would change the course of her life.

After teaching at various studios and fitness centers across the country since 2007, she opened Transitions Yoga in 2015. Starting her own studio created opportunities to expand her teaching and mentoring of students and teachers. The small 6 person studio has since expanded to a new space, added a regional 200 hour Teacher Training, retreats, and an additional aerial-based studio at Transitions Yoga at Balancing Goat in February 2020.

Sigrid’s mission is to encourage others to be the best version of themselves, to dream a little bigger and make you laugh with one of her terrible jokes. She believes that as business owners we are stronger together. If COVID taught us anything, it’s that we need to learn to collaborate, be creative when thinking about how business runs and that business as usual is unusual during challenging times.

And in case you’re wondering, Sigrid can now touch her toes, completed her first Ironman and survived a heart attack.

Stephanie Strand

Stephanie Strand

I started my first yoga class in college as an extra credit class with my friend and loved it. I then took my first training in Minneapolis with YogaFit and started teaching at Cross-Fit gyms. I traveled west after college and did another intensive training with Jaya Yoga for their anatomical and fundamental movement-based practices. Wanting to continue along this path and feeling there was so much more to explore, I completed another training in Minneapolis with Devanadi and than progressed through to a Yoga Therapy program with Yoga North.

My passion is making creative sequences that blend together and move into a flowing meditation. Holding space for functional movement is what I want for students, so they can tune in to their own creative side and find their yoga path. With this life experience, I want to inspire connection, healing, and wholeness, where people are gathered to breathe, sweat, move, and achieve more than just a physical workout. Yoga is all about the balance between strength and flexibility, holding and releasing; with music and syncing of people as a community that creates a whole new experience, you can’t get anywhere else.
