, former owner of Soma in Denver, was also in the mix of teachers when Alchemy of Movement opened in 1997. She has created an organic and penetrating class filled with graceful momentum and repeated sequences that allow you to drop into the feeling of your movement versus being in your head trying to follow choreography. Jessica is welcoming, challenging and encouraging as she gently guides you into your body – into sensation and out of linear, goal oriented movement/thinking.
, former founder of Alchemy of Movement brought Nia to Colorado in the early 90’s. Carolyne is a high spirited, fiery, unapologetic teacher; she brings a fierce and frisky sauce to her Athletic Soul classes. Her instruction is precise and enlivening as she directs you to lift your chin up and finish your movement. This class will get your heart rate up for sure but is not as high intensity as SoulSweat. Also if you are sensitive to volume levels Carolyne plays her music lower which some prefer:)
