Andi Oliveira, a Brazilian native, is a passionate entrepreneur who embarked on a journey into the world of hot yoga. With a nutritional scientist background and successful Kumon franchise owner experience, Andi founded ‘Root to Rise Yoga’ five years ago. Her entrepreneurial spirit and deep love for yoga converged to create a warm and inviting sanctuary. Root to Rise Yoga, under her leadership, embodies a beautiful community, excellence, education, and a fusion of science with yoga tradition. Andi’s personal touch can be felt throughout the studio, where she practices alongside her students, tends to the space, and welcomes everyone to her yoga family. Join Andi at Root to Rise, where she invites you to make yourself at “hOMe”.
Yoga and Katie are a seemingly unlikely duo. She can’t touch her toes or stand on her head. The realization yoga was never about that at all was a saving grace for Katie who found a regular practice in her 30s. She moved from a love-hate relationship with yoga to something that she cherishes. It is about mindfulness and presence. It is about letting go of pretense and the illusion of perfection. It is about community, something she adores about Root to Rise, where is it a blessing to be both student and guide.
Kate was training for the 2001 New York City Marathon when she discovered Hot Yoga. Her practice began as a way to compliment her running but quickly evolved into something greater. The physical benefits unveiled themselves swiftly but the true power of a regular hot yoga practice was intangible. The mental and emotional benefits far outweighed the physical. After nine years of practicing, Kate completed her training in 2010. She has taught at a variety of studios in Denver, Colorado and has successfully led teacher trainings. She enjoys sharing her love and knowledge of the practice and encourages her students to be true to themselves, curious and open minded.
Lindsay completed her Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles, CA (Fall 2011). This nine-week intensive course was one of the most challenging things she had been through and looking back, one of the best times of her life. Lindsay has taught in studios all over – from Eugene, OR to Athens, GA, Seattle, WA to Nairobi, KE – and now in Denver, CO. She recently began teaching an Intermediate Hot Yoga class, and looks forward to continuing to advance the practice personally, as well as within her yoga community!
