Yoga & Brews has changed the landscape of Yoga Classes in Colorado Springs

About Yoga & Brews, LLC

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, and are expanding quickly as more locations are set to open in Spring of 2018.

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 Morgan

RYT-200

Morgan Lavender found yoga as a way to heal her body from multiple dance injuries, develop a spiritual practice, practice mindfulness, connect with communities! After completing her 200hr teacher training in Costa Rica in 2017, she has taught classes in Florida and Colorado in physical therapy offices, apartments, rock climbing gyms, breweries, and as a University Professor. Morgan loves flowing with fellow warriors that help build each other up through a little bit of sweat and a lot of smiles.
In May 2020, Morgan graduated with her Master's in Health Promotion at UCCS, guided by her passion for the holistic approach to wellness. This once-upon-a-time-beach-goer now consistently finds joy in the mountains. In her free time, you'll definitely find Morgan outside (most likely with her pup) hiking, mountain biking, camping, snowshoeing, skiing, and enjoying the fresh air! Come flow with Morgan - let's sweat together, cheers together, and build a community together!

Meet Ari

RYT 200

Ari began to practice yoga in 2016, shortly after moving to Colorado, and completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program at Cambio Yoga in March 2018. Ari's classes are designed with the goal of students walking away having learned something, with a special focus on how to look beyond the physical asanas, and take the practices of yoga off the mat. Ari's belief is that being able to do full splits or nail a handstand probably won't help you get through the stresses life can bring, but focused breathing or meditation techniques sure might! Ari seeks to always emphasize the sensation of poses over physical appearance of poses, thus allowing students with any level of mobility, ability, or experience to feel welcome as well as benefit from the practice.
When she is not teaching or practicing, Ari works full-time as a speech therapist. Ari believes that communication is one of the most fundamental things humans do, and seeks to honor all communication in her work and her yoga classes. Yoga allows communication channels to open so practitioners can become more attuned to their true selves and interact more authentically with the world. Yoga for Ari began with the physical benefits of an asana practice, but she was quickly captivated by the deeper benefits - clarity, calmness, and self-acceptance she strives to share with  clients, patients, and yoga students.
* Ari is currently sub teacher for classes as needed.
Jessica Ralph

Meet Jes

 RYT-200

Jes found yoga about 10 years ago during her husband's first deployment.   She quickly learned it gave her the calm she needed and was the perfect balance to her weightless journey. Once losing 90lbs she became a personal trainer through NASM.  After training for several years, moving frequently as an Army spouse,  and having some health issues it became clear that yoga was her constant and true calling.  She completed her 200hr teacher training through Cambio in 2018. Jes truly believes in the 8 limb path and tries to live by example daily.

Nature is her happy place. You'll frequently find  her hiking with her family,  gardening, or just taking her love of exercise and yoga outdoors.
