Thinking about starting yoga but don’t know how to begin? Or maybe you’re stuck in a rut and want to switch up your routine? No matter where you're at, there’s plenty of good vibes to go around in the greater-Boulder area.
Here’s a guide to some of my favorite studios, must-try instructors and some of the coolest classes in town!
Instructor: Joy Shanley Miller
Class: podFLOW1 - Fridays @ 1:30pm
Joy truly embodies her name. She is a friend to all and a great teller of stories. Her podFLOW1 class is the perfect place to start if you are beginning your yoga journey. While giving great setup cues and loving adjustments for alignment, she always teaches a relatable lesson. Joy has a style that many try to replicate, but none have mastered and nothing in her class is forced—it always seems to be just what you need to hear. Joy’s environment of inclusivity has a real strength in building community, both on and off the mat.
Instructor: Noelle Pierrat
Class: podFIT - Sundays @ 10:30am
Noelle always packs a full house—and that’s because she packs a mean, sweat-worthy punch! If you are looking to whip your body into shape before Savasana, then this is the class for you. PodFIT is not your traditional yoga class; this workout challenges your body by incorporating cardio and weight training into your practice—which most experienced yogis would say is essential for keeping you stable, strong, and safe!
Instructor: Suzanne Spiegel
Class: YIN - Wednesdays @ 1:30pm
There are few people that I’ve encountered who know more about the practice of Yin Yoga than Suzanne. Her deep knowledge of Yin means she knows and understandings the best modifications for every body type during every flow—and she can adapt to what her students want and need, both mentally and physically. Plus, Suzzane’s classes never feel monotonous. During your flow, her use of props ensures that you have a complete immersion into your connective tissues. And as they say, the “issue is in your tissue”; so Suzanne’s class is a perfect place to safely delve into these spots in our bodies where we may be hanging on to extra (and stressful) stuff.
Instructor: Lauralyn Sullivan
Class: Yoga Nidra - Saturdays @ 6:45pm
Lauralyn’s mission is to transform suffering into compassion, and she excels at this. She has completed trainings in Nidra with some of the leading teachers in the industry and her voice was made for leading students into a calm Nidra practice. We are so lucky to have her in the Denver metro area. Lauralyn also teaches a wide array of courses at both of the River Yoga’s locations on Delaware Street and Welton Street. In the times we live in, rarely do people take the time to slow down and relax, so do yourself a favor and book this incredible class.

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.
Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.
We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.
Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.
If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
