Our beautiful friendship started in Spring of 2015, and was based entirely on being ‘workout buddies’ at the gym. We knew right away we would be a dangerous combination, as we evolved in our routines and pushed each other to try new things…such as getting lost during a 30k race in the middle of the wilderness (never getting talked into THAT again..) We discussed how to become stronger, faster, healthier, and recruited whoever we could to join us along the way. Through our travels, we were always stumbling upon beautiful studios that gave us an unforgettable workout experience. Taking bits and pieces that we loved from each one and through our personal experiences, we crafted the perfect idea for an Infrared heated studio. A studio that provides a multitude of health benefits, as well as gives a rejuvenating workout, both mentally and physically. We have pioneered our classes to fit any fitness level, and all walks of life. So here we are, Devon, as the lovely fitness instructor, and Jess, the yogi! We hope that you will join us on this journey and enjoy every step of the way as much as we have!
Jess is an avid runner and full time mother of four, free spirited children. Her goal on a daily basis is to simply feel good, be energetic, and be happy. To reach this goal is even more simple: be careful of what you put into your body, get plenty of fresh air, exercise daily, be loving towards others, and enjoy a good craft beer! From track and cross country, to volleyball, basketball, and diving into any and all forms of physical fitness, Jess discovered a love for yoga, and felt inspired to teach others the practice that has benefited her life both physically and mentally. She has a bachelors degree in Sociology and Human Services from Black Hills State University, and is a RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) from the Colorado School of Yoga where she studied under the founder, Gina Caputo, who put her heart and soul into her schooling and taught her students the priceless knowledge of what yoga really means and how to practice it both on, and off the mat. Jess is CPR and AED certified, and has completed continued education courses in both Yin and Chair yoga. Come to class to breathe, laugh, and evolve both physically and mentally.

“I first fell in love with yoga after I received a free week trial at a local studio. I had just recently sprained my ankle and was hoping that a few classes would at least help bring back some mobility. After only three classes, I was blown away by the drastic improvements I experienced, not only in my ankle, but my overall leg flexibility and mental calmness. I’ve been hooked ever since", says Olivia.
