Paula Bayer

CERTIFIED AMRIT YOGA INSTRUCTOR II

I believe with yoga first, everything else will fall into place. My intention is to help students learn how to create and experience an energy of peace, on and off of the mat, restoring, continuing health in body, mind and spirit, where with practice peace of mind can truly become a choice and just a breath away.

Welcome to Yoga Happens Here

Experience the Life Changing Benefits of Yoga



Yoga Happens Here Studio
The Studio

In this peaceful downtown studio, classes include individualized attention. This is a non-competitive, meditation in motion, with a powerful awareness component, called the Posture of Consciousness.

You will learn a series of mindful yoga stretches, postures, and the transformative impact of conscious breathing, pranayama. All shapes, sizes, ages and conditions will receive great benefit with practice as we focus on proper form, alignment, and the breath, not perfection… learning how to relax into what is… how to truly let go.

Your journey begins from where you are, not from where you are not.

Paula Bayer

CERTIFIED AMRIT YOGA INSTRUCTOR II

Yoga started changing my life many years ago resulting in a new life and new beginning. Before yoga, a stressful work environment plus other challenges led to a breakdown in my immune system which represented a major lack of energy, balance, and quality in my life.

Through continued practice and experimentation of authentic yoga techniques, I feel and live life with a new inspiration, energy and fulfillment, allowing my life to unfold.

TESTIMONIALS

I have known Paula for over 20 years. She is a wonderful teacher, dedicated to her discipline, caring and compassionate. Her enthusiasm and love of Yoga and its benefits are obvious from the moment you meet her. I have experienced that joy myself as one of her students!
Dr.Lewis Mock Chiropractor - Colorado Springs
I've been taking yoga classes with Paula since she opened her studio in Manito. I can no longer imagine my life without yoga with Paula! I have rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic back pain. It's the perfect exercise for me physically, emotionally and spiritually! Yoga actually lessens my pain, strengthens my body and calms my mind. I could go on and on about the benefits of yoga but I would just encourage everyone to try it for themselves.

Paula is so sweet and is such a wonderful person and teacher!! Would highly recommend !!!
