Hello, dear Ashtanga Yoga Denver community:
Hanging in there? We miss you all! We’ve been practicing together (FOR FREE!) via Zoom each morning and it’s going really well.
The Zoom classes are FREE, and are an excellent way to develop a home practice, refine your practice, get re-acquainted with the Sanskrit count, and stay connected as a community. You may practice via a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

(2) Test the Zoom link provided below before the meeting
(3) Sign into the meeting with your email and name
(4) Have your device propped up and be ready for practice

There are 4 different recurring classes:

Click on the link above or enter the URL in your browser, and register for the class(es) you plan on taking. We are trying to keep it as simple as possible so the Meeting IDs should not change. There are no “meeting passwords” required. Once you have registered for a class, then you may attend any future occurrences with ease.
I will not begin the class/start the meeting each morning until the appointed time. Rest assured, I’ll begin on time 🙂 Be patient …
Love to each of you,
Elizabeth & Bill
It is with a heavy heart that we will close Ashtanga Yoga Denver for all classes beginning immediately.
Boundaries have continued to move extremely quickly. The measures of what makes sense and sense to do have changed. We always want to meet both ourselves and information in the present.
When we sent out last week’s email, it was noted that we would monitor a changing landscape daily. Currently, we believe that best practices dictate that we pause classes until more surety enters our community, our minds, and our culture. Let’s error on the cautious side while doing our very best to maintain our community. This situation surely teaches us that we are all one. What each and every one of us does impacts not only our community but also many others we don’t imagine or see as friends or community members. Closing the Shala is our opportunity to make sure that we widen our circle to everyone. We close to treat the world right.
It is our belief that our community members are thoughtful and strong. This current obstacle gives us the opportunity of home practice, which from my own experience during times of injury or stress is one of the most profound gifts that we can give ourselves.
A home practice can be as simple a single sun salute or as complex as you desire to make it. The key is making time and doing this DAILY! For those of you who have not had the opportunity or the willpower, this is that chance.
All of us, as part of this Shala and community, are a resilient crew. Let’s provide that same strength to all of those around us. Feel free to lean on us. We will do our best.
With so much Love,
Bill & Elizabeth
