Toren Wagner

Monday Classes
6:15 pm – 7:15 pm

Toren grew up in Florida, spent most of his adult life in California, and has only recently become a proud member of the Grand Junction community. He first started practicing yoga in 2012 while living in Los Angeles, CA. He kept active with soccer, tennis, hiking and beach volleyball, but was looking for another outlet to strengthen his body with less impact on the joints. Little did Toren know that while yoga is a great practice to build physical strength, it is also an important way to build mental strength and mindfulness. He was first introduced to yoga at a hot studio and now it’s his favorite environment to practice in. 

Toren completed his RYT 200 hour certification in early 2019, with an emphasis on a Baptiste influenced training. Though power flow yoga is a favorite flavor, he would also like to teach a Yin style yoga as well. Once upon a time, Toren taught ballroom dance and attributes a lot of who he is today to dance and yoga. His goal is to help spread his love of yoga to the world, as it is not only a great activity but a wonderful way of life.

Sarah strive’s to provide a safe space for all to feel and explore themselves intimately, to get comfortable with discomfort, to be lighthearted, to learn, and to grow physically and spiritually.

Sabrina

Subbing for Sarah Estabrook Yin Classes 7:30 – 8:30 pm
October 14, 16, 21, 23

 

Sabrina has been a student of yoga for over 20 years! Motivated to get back into shape after having her daughter, she tried yoga and immediately fell in love with it! Yoga resonated within her, not just on a physical level, but on a spiritual level as well. The intricate dance between breath and movement fascinated her. It was her curiosity and interest in deepening her own practice that she went through a teacher training. She never had any interest in becoming an instructor, but here she is almost a decade later. Sabrina is a Colorado native straight outta Clifton. She moved from Grand Junction immediately graduating college; she never took the dirt. The call to come home followed her throughout her adventures. In 2010, she was laid-off from her big corporate job. She was terrified and excited at the same time. It was right then she made the decision to focus her energy on projects that were more in align with her beliefs. Since then Sabrina has lived from coast to coast and everywhere else in between doing what she loves; teaching yoga and nutrition. Sabrina is Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200, a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, and is currently working on getting her 500 hour yoga teacher certification. She completed her first 265 hour teacher training in 2010 and has over 1200 hours of yoga teacher training under her belt. She’s completed Corepower Teacher Training Level II, Yoga Pod Hot Yoga Teacher Training, YAS Certified Yoga Teacher Training, Baron Baptiste’s Unstoppable Youth Yoga Program and Buti Yoga. She’s studied with Gina Caputo, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Shannon Paige and many more! Sabrina has a Master’s in Clinical Nutrition and loves to nerd out about food and alternative health.

Kaila & Ben

Tuesday Classes

Ben is a Grand Junction native who loves everything the western slope of CO has to offer…except its proximity to the great ocean waves (although he has been known to surf the local river waves). He is a certified Acro yoga teacher through Acro yoga international. Along with his very talented acro partner, Kaila, he is excited to share his knowledge with the local community. He wants you to put down your phone and pick your friends up!

Kaila is originally from Missouri, but the mountains and desert were calling her to the place she’s spent the last 7 years of her life. She is somewhat new to grand junction after moving here from Glenwood Springs. She is always down to make new friends! Climbing is her number one passion, but Acro yoga is her second favorite challenge.  Kaila was introduced to Acro yoga on her & Ben’s first date, and continues to fall in love with both! She is very excited to co teach Acro yoga to the local community!
