Christen Bakken

The River, Yoga for Young Warriors

Christen Bakken is uncertain if she found yoga, or if yoga found her, but since 1998 the yoga mat has been Christen’s refuge. Her first visits to the mat had nothing to do with tight hamstrings or shoulders and instead, had more to do with reducing anxiety. Through movement and breath, she began to see the mat as a place to let go, and, only then, strengthen and soften in all areas of her life. In 2006, Christen took her first power yoga teacher training. As important as teaching is to her life, being a student is even more important. She has done many trainings since then; her most recent string of trainings in 2011, 2012 and 2013 with Rusty Wells in San Francisco. Christen hopes to practice beside you as often as she has the opportunity to guide your practice. Christen loves... Read the profile >>

Danielle Barbeau-Cook

The River

For Danielle Barbeau Cook, practicing yoga is way of life on and off the mat. Danielle grew up near Boulder, CO and began practicing yoga over 10 years ago.

Mike Konrad

Corepower Yoga

Mike's yoga journey began 6 years ago when he was encouraged by a good friend to try it out. After a couple of classes, he was hooked -- and shocked -- at how physically and mentally challenging the practice was. Mike suffered from a dislocated shoulder for nearly 5 years. He was told he would never have full range of movement ever again. After his first year of a dedicated yoga practice, his shoulders were stronger than they had ever been before. Mike believes that yoga is a great way to build functional strength in the body - not to mention a healthy way to eliminate stress and focus the mind. After completing CorePower's teacher training, Mike started teaching right away. His class is physically challenging with an emphasis on breath and fun! Read the profile >>
