Denver Yoga + Barre

Open your hearts and evolve together

Evolution starts at home–In the body, through the breath, in community

At ʻOhana our mission is to evolve. To open our hearts in ways we didn’t think possible. This starts with the journey to loving ourselves and our bodies then expands to loving those around us–Especially those who have been marginalized and oppressed.

Our invitation to you at this Denver yoga and barre studio is to connect with your body and breath, to move as one as we create a community that’s truly welcome to all. While we have been a predominantly white space throughout the years we’re here to do the work, open our hearts, and evolve in a way that liberates us all–Because one cannot be free until we are all free.

Join us in this evolution

Movement has been a major modality for healing in my life, pre and postpartum, and I am so excited to share that love with you on the mat. After leaving a career on Capitol Hill in D.C. and earning my MBA at CU Boulder, I have since been embracing a softer phase of life as a mother and movement teacher. My classes are designed with intention to help you feel your rhythm and find your joy. I teach for every type of person and every type of body – expect great beats and a great sweat in a fun, accessible environment!

As former athlete, yoga became active recover for me. Movement is mandatory as daily routine for my mind and body. You will typically experience a fiery flow, where I believe vinyasa is a form of meditation. Let’s breathe and move together!

Whether at the barre or on my mat, movement is my medicine!  It is an essential part of my lifestyle in both personal practice as well as what I feel deeply called to share.  I hope to spark your curiosity and encourage merriment as we explore the spirit-body connection.

Hello friends! I love guiding classes and holding space. I love throwing down a challenging class and I love getting upside down. More than anything, the connections that are made is what drives me. My love for yoga began in 2006 and I plan to be handstanding well into my hundreds! When not on my mat, you can find me in the mountains being nurtured by nature.

Ever fascinated by the interplay between structure and creativity, I, a white, heterosexual womxn (she/her) satisfy my life-long exploration of this duality by practicing + teaching yoga as well as practicing as an Architect. The intersections of these two worlds are vast. Join me in flow to help draw closer to yourself and to stoke the spirit of inquiry that lives within each of us.

Yoga has been a steady force in nearly all of my adult life. I have been teaching intermittently since completing my 200hr RYT in 2015 and I feel incredibly grateful to call the Ohana community home. My vinyasa & restorative classes are a blend of stillness and movement, focus and alignment, power and softness.

Josh Harding-Lewis

Josh Harding-Lewis

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Growing up as a cisgender black Native American male, I quickly grew a passion for all things sports. During my tenure as a collegiate athlete, I sustained a low back injury where yoga became part of my physical therapy. My yoga practice became a new frontier for physical prowess, which led to 13 years of experience. In 2017, my medical profession took me from Phoenix, AZ to Denver, where I began to hone his ability to teach yoga. My goal is to leave you feeling invigorated with a side of bliss.

I (she/her) fell in love with movement at a young age. Growing up within a diverse community north of Boston, I was exposed to many cultures and modalities of movement. My own Lebanese heritage influenced my love of dance and now I get my fix of moving to music through barre! As a mom of three and a leader in the pre/postnatal fitness industry, I feel the call to help others fall in love with moving their bodies in a holistic way. I hope you leave my classes feeling aligned, empowered, stronger and smiling.

I (she/her) took my first yoga class in college and was immediately drawn to the yoga community. Over the last decade, I have been teaching both in-person and virtually. My classes will encourage you to cultivate deeper mind and body awareness. They will challenge you to build strength from within. Most importantly, they will inspire you to connect to the most authentic version of yourself!

Kathy Sietos Sound Healing Denver

Kathy Sietos - Sound Healing

My greatest passion to date is to witness and help facilitate deep energetic and emotional healing within a group setting. When 2 or more people gather together in ceremony and ritual a beautiful amplification of energy manifests. Each session is unique but all sessions will incorporate herbs, smoke clearings, guided and impactful healing techniques that are intermixed with a symphony of sacred frequencies and sounds.
