find your inner sunshine
through trauma-sensitive yoga 

serving Summit County Colorado and Front Range

About

hello!
my name is Summer

Based in Colorado I am a former high school teacher and service industry professional turned yoga teacher. Many moons ago I embarked on an adventure to Costa Rica. Where I stayed for three months and graduated with my 200 RYT certification. I have been teaching yoga ever since! 

 

Yoga has become my own form of therapy and has been a healing journey. It has brought me home to my body, sparked my creativity, and warmed my heart. On top of that, it has allowed me to recognize my anxious and fearful tendencies, see and let go of past traumas and ultimately taught me how to view myself through a lens of compassion.

 

Because of my own experiences and how yoga has helped me, I utilize trauma-sensitive yoga in my classes, it is an approach to yoga that prioritizes creating a safe and empowering environment for individuals who have experienced trauma, emphasizing choice, mindfulness, and sensory awareness. It aims to help participants reconnect with their bodies, reduce trauma-related symptoms, and promote healing through modified and consent-based yoga practices.

Being someone who has always been in a profession that serves people I have learned that I love connecting, forming community and being a helping hand to those in need. I have always said that my superpower is my empathy for others and you will find that deeply rooted in my yoga classes.

My purpose: I want to make a difference in the world by spreading love and helping people find and recognize their inner sunshine.

"I met Summer at a week-long retreat for young adults who have faced a cancer diagnosis. Summer was our yoga retreat guide and facilitator and we started each day in the morning in the yoga studio. She would check in throughout the day and at the end of each day we would do mindfulness and meditation practice. Summer was attentive to each of us and aware of our different needs. Summer was mindful of our different skill levels and the accommodations needed for each individual. She was creative in what she offered us each day; her warm, inviting nature allowed us all to feel more comfortable and be present. She is a natural leader and I am so grateful for all the memories made that week. She made my week unforgettable; there were plenty of laughs shared along with tears shed. She allowed our group to open up and learn ways to trust our bodies again, despite everything we had been through. Her knowledge and insight was extremely impressive and she taught me so much that week. I encourage anyone seeking to learn more about themselves to reach out to her and experience it for yourself."
