Summer Events and Workshops

Starting June 1, 2023

We're excited to offer in-person events to help you connect to yourself, others and nature, and online workshops for both individuals looking to improve their overall wellbeing and yoga teachers who are ready to take their business to the next level. There's something for everyone with walking, hiking, yoga, and stand up paddle boarding. Satisfy your longing for a connection to nature as you explore all that Colorado has to offer. Tap into nature's ability to inspire.


Experiencing mindful time outdoors to attune with nature's cycles is a powerful way to reduce stress, improve well-being, and find more joy in life! The average American spends 11 hours per day on a screen, and more than 90% of their lives indoors. Unplug and join us outside to rejuvenate your soul.

Stand Up Paddleboard Classes
June 1 - August 31

Experience Colorado's freshest water sport, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), held on the calm waters of Evergreen Lake in Evergreen, CO, and Big Soda Lake in Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, CO.


We'll practice yoga poses to incorporate strength, balance, core, and flexibility. One of the fastest-growing water sports, SUP yoga combines the healthy benefits of outdoor recreation with the fundamentals of asana practice in a way that is accessible to all experience levels. Enjoy the serenity of taking your yoga practice out on the water! 

2023 SUP classes start on June 1.


Join me for SUP Yoga on Thursdays at Evergreen Lake at 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM (alternating weeks), and on Sundays at Bear Creek Lake Park at 8:30 AM. Classes are 90 minutes and include all necessary equipment. 


Register for Bear Creek through Rocky Mountain Paddle Board at this site. Click Book Lakewood and select SUP Yoga.

If you're completely new to SUP and want some time getting comfortable on the board before jumping into yoga, join one of my monthly clinics at Evergreen Lake (held on Fridays June 16, July 14 and August 18 at 3:00 p.m.)

Plan Your First Retreat

Leading a retreat can be a deeply rewarding experience, but may be overwhelming to plan. Firefly can help!


Hosting a retreat is a great way for you as a yoga teacher to develop a loyal following, and provide your current and future students an opportunity for a transformational experience and to get to know you as a person. 

If you're ready to lead your first yoga retreat, but aren't sure where to start, this workshop is for you. Over two days, we'll cover everything you need to think about and plan for when creating a transformational retreat for your clients.


Classes are on Tuesdays June 6 and 13 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Mountain Time. This workshop is offered via Zoom so that you can join from where you are. 


During this interactive online workshop, you'll have focused time to work on details related to organizing your retreat. You'll gain clarity on whether leading a retreat is right for you and who your target market is; learn considerations for selecting a location and venue; how to budget and set a price for your retreat; and tips for effectively marketing your retreat.

Sign up to join us if you're serious about making a difference in the lives of your students, want to travel the world sharing your unique gifts, want to offer a more in-depth experience for students and build a deeper connection, and are ready to take your business to the next level!

1/2 Day Hiking & Yoga Retreat
Date TBD

If you can't get away for a full week or weekend for a retreat, join us for this half day retreat in Evergreen, Colorado.


We kick off the morning with a group hike at Alderfer / Three Sisters Park, followed by a yin yoga and meditation workshop.


There are lots of great options at Alderfer/Three Sisters for hikes ranging from an easy stroll to a strenuous climb. There are restrooms at the trailhead. We'll decide on the trail as a group.


After the hike, we'll move through a 60-minute yin yoga practice to help recover from our hike. This practice is suitable for all levels and involves holding in stretches (on the floor) for three to five minutes. Yin is appropriate for all levels. Class will include a brief meditation to help you get clear on what you want more of in your life.

Registration will open as soon as a date is set.
