What inspires us
We are dedicated to educating extraordinary yoga teachers and providing valuable continuing yoga education for those who have a hunger for both academic and practical knowledge and are looking to hone their offerings to be passionate, authentic and inspired teachers. Our trainings pay homage to the eclectic and vibrant history of Yoga with a focus on Integrated Vinyasa™ and its applications in modern society.
Integrated Vinyasa™ is a yoga practice rooted in intelligent, natural evolutionary patterns and emphasizes the subtle inner work we access via our physical bodies and movement. It unifies the polarities of alignment and flow, anatomy and energetics, engagement and relaxation, outer and inner, focus and release, structure and spontaneity, and work and play. More than simply a style of yoga, Integrated Vinyasa™ illuminates our relationship with Nature, our interconnectedness and an energetically sustainable approach to living fully.
“Vinyasa” means to place intentionally and we believe a commitment to intentionality in both teaching yoga and living life will lead our graduates to be superlative teachers on and off the mat.
Surpassing the minimum since 2007
We have been a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School in good standing since 2007. Each year we meet and surpass the minimum requirements to maintain our registration and are constantly developing curriculum beyond the Yoga Alliance Registered 200 and 300 hour programs to provide opportunities for continuing education and specialization. All our senior faculty meet or exceed the Yoga Alliance minimum experience requirements.
Gina absolutely lives her yoga and inspires all those around her to do the same. She has a wealth of knowledge and knows how to transmit it with both a sense of the sacred and a sense of humor. These teacher trainings will help you step into living up to your highest potential and then teach others to do the same!

The most depth and organization of any workshop or training I have ever taken. And, this ability to be knowledgeable and passionate about what you are teaching dedicated to the transmission of it, while still being real and fun, is unique to you in the world of teacher trainings.

The Colorado School of Yoga stands out as an institution where yoga teachers, both aspiring and experienced, can explore the depths of the practice in an intimate setting that’s tailored to fit their educational needs. I appreciate the school’s non cookie cutter approach and received far more than I expected from my trainings.

Colorado School of Yoga offers a yoga curriculum that is relevant to the yoga teacher refining their craft and the yoga enthusiast who applies the beneficial techniques of yoga to their personal and professional lives alike. These programs are much more than practicing physical yoga and go beyond learning material; they are catalysts for students of yoga to develop a personal symphony of meaning about why they practice and teach. This training training celebrates the individuality in all of us and ties us together in the comfort of our shared love for the practice of yoga.
