Mandy Leonhardt

Instructor

A warrior of light carries a beacon to connect the mind, body, and spirit to a path of growth and transformation. I aspire to bring this light of healing energy through yoga and body work to harmonize the physical body and expand the emotional and mental spirit.

Finding the true, authentic self is yoga. I am yoga and yoga is me, consciously and constantly engaging in this life practice. I am a forever, lifetime student seeking pathways to a higher wisdom and vibrancy. When I am connected to the emotional, mind, and body practice, I find inner stillness and intuitive wisdom. By being a steward of my own soul, I want to impart this gift to others, helping them connect to their true essence that already lies within them.

The body is more than a structure. It’s a complex network, a global community containing channels and rivers of nerves, blood, muscles, organs, ligaments, joints. On a cellular level, signals to our nerves inform our bones and muscles. Answers truly already lie within us–within our DNA. As we come to know our physical structure, we cultivate this extraordinary path to our true self–our Atman.

Body work and anatomy is my zone of genius. I hope to teach students through yoga asana, mediation, pranayama, and energy work to know themselves inside and out like a map, a favorite trail, a familiar home–all allies on the path to growth and transformation.

I have been studying yoga since 1996 and am a certified E-RYT 900 hour Hatha Kripalu yoga instructor, massage therapist, Reiki master and transformative energy worker. My classes are inspired by an integrated approach focusing on the power of the breath, safe softening/opening of the heart, and trusting in one’s own strength, while being compassionate, intentional, and present. Yoga inspires me to share its benefits with the whole community, regardless of age, body type, skill level, or injury. I believe everybody can benefit from the mindful, healing effects of yoga.

Karen Nann

Instructor

Athletics have been part of Karen’s life for as long as she can remember. She participated in and taught tennis, horseback riding, and skiing. She first became interested in yoga after a tennis injury in high school. While attending the University of Colorado at Boulder for her undergraduate degree in 2002, she became certified in Ashtanga Yoga before obtaining her CorePower Yoga certification in vinyasa and sculpt.

Yoga was not easy for Karen. Years of tight muscles made asanas tough to work through. Her personal and physical evolution helps her relate with yogis of all levels and abilities and allows her passion for yoga to grow. Her classes incorporate an athletic aspect and she guarantees a workout for the body and the mind.

In 2008, Karen began working at Better Bodies and fell in love with spin and kickboxing. She was trained in these disciplines and is excited to bring her kickboxing 20/20/20 class to Rakta. When she’s not teaching, Karen is skiing or hiking with her canine sidekick Callie or working as a veterinarian at Pet Kare Clinic. She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine where she also taught vinyasa land yoga, paddle board yoga, and kickboxing 20/20/20. While finishing her veterinary studies at Colorado State University, she taught yoga at Raintree Athletic Club. Karen feels blessed to practice veterinary medicine, yoga, and kickboxing in the Steamboat and Rakta communities.
