yoga

At GLDDST we believe yoga to be an integral part of any fitness routine. Whether you’re training as a professional athlete, starting a weight loss routine, or just looking to improve your overall well-being, yoga will help. Everyone is able to do it in some form, regardless of age or fitness limitations. We currently offer free classes around the Denver metro area and look forward to opening our Yoga Box concept in the near future. Feel free to contact us about hosting a class or a private lesson.
