About Yoga & Brews
Welcome to our Yoga & Brews community, where our love for yoga and local, craft beer unites. We are excited to have you join us for practice and a brew or two.
Our studio is a Colorado brewery. Our post-class refreshment is a beer. We welcome all level yogis and beer tasting experiences to our community. Relax its only yoga & beer, nothing too serious. Building the beer loving community one class, one beer at a time.
We like to talk about Yoga & Brews as the combination of things that make us feel good. Feel-good, non-intimidating, all-levels, fun yoga. Local, craft brews, enjoyed in the breweries that passionately make them. And a welcoming community of like minded individuals to gather with friends, new and old.
The idea for this unique concept all started over a couple beers on the porch one summer evening between good friends, and we began classes in September 2015 at Gold Camp Brewing Company. We now host a class almost every day of the week in the Colorado Springs.
Our teachers are all at least 200-hour Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT) and were hand-selected as Yoga & Brews teachers based on their passion for life and yoga. Leading classes with a light-hearted approach. No matter what teacher you practice with you are sure to sweat, have some fun, and earn your beer. The fantastic breweries we practice in embody the values of Yoga & Brews and provide the space for the beer loving yoga community to feel welcome and comfortable being in. And our tribe of yogis, well, they are amazing and the sort of people that you'll want to be friends with.
We would love to have you join us!

Meet Melanie, Founder/RYT 500
Melanie came to yoga in 2013 and immediately noticed how yoga was transforming her life in mind, body and spirit. She was inspired to guide others toward finding their own balance. Melanie's classes are fun and challenging with a dose of philosophy and poetry. Expect to laugh, sweat and maybe learn something new.
When she is not in the studio (brewery) teaching yoga, Melanie enjoys spending time with her friends and family in the outdoors hiking, snowboarding, riding dirt bikes, and gardening.

Kelsey began practicing yoga in 2008. She has spent much of her life linking her love for community and passion for writing to a deeper understanding of wellness. Devoting time to intrapersonal work is what led her to the multi-faceted practice of yoga. Seeking connection to others and herself, she is a lifelong student of intercultural communication and the holistic approach to body, spirit, breath and mind. Kelsey teaches playful, intentionally-themed classes that interweave glimpses of various expressions of yoga. She strives to teach classes that are inclusive and accessible to all experience levels and age groups, and is eager to share yoga with anyone and everyone that wants to learn. When she is not in the studio, she enjoys wrapping herself in rays of sunshine, scanning misty skies for rainbows, and filling her soul by smiling at strangers.
