About De West

De West, Certified Yoga Therapist, C-IAYT

de-west-2

De West is the co-owner of Studio Be Yoga and the founder of Therapeutic Yoga Practice With De. The Therapeutic Yoga Practice is a movement practice that allows people of all ages and abilities to experience a positive, relaxed and transforming experience in both body and mind.

She has been enjoying the benefits of a devoted yoga practice since 1992. After teaching many intensive athletic-style practices, she discovered that her students seemed to get even more benefits from a quieter, deeply internal and therapeutic yoga practice.

Precision, creative sequencing and deep understanding of anatomy contribute to De’s passion for helping students create more peace, freedom in their bodies. Students leave De’s classes rejuvenated, grounded and infused with a sense of personal and physical empowerment.

De is a leader in the Boulder, Colorado yoga community. Her over 25 years of teaching combines alignment principles and therapeutic yoga. Her years of work with Osteopathic doctors allow her to apply yoga to many different people and conditions.

Therapeutic Yoga Practice with De

Therapeutic Yoga Practice teaches us to work with the natural intelligence of our bodies through a series of gentle, focused and healing movements. This simple, profound approach calms the mind and relaxes the body, creating a safe space for us to build a foundation for creating change.

Therapeutic Yoga Practice with De is a movement practice that allows people of all ages and abilities to experience a positive, relaxed and transforming experience in both body and mind.

The vision of this Therapeutic Yoga Practice with De is to build a community of individuals with a common interest in deepening awareness within themselves and in relation to others through a movement practice. The hopeful outcome of the practice will be a life of greater reflection, kindness and compassion.

The practice and offerings are uniquely designed to be inclusive to all who are interested and open to possibility.

Why Therapeutic Yoga Practice with De?
The practice is about quieting our busy mind. Our busy mind is an expression of our pains, fears, and blockages that bounce around and distract us from what really matters. Therapeutic Yoga poses, sequences, and breathing exercises are our guide to understanding ourselves in a state of well-being that permeates all areas of our lives.

Why is it a healing practice?
The practice allows for better function in the body and a deeper connection between mind, body and spirit. By correcting old patterns and releasing blockages that no longer serve us, we create greater awareness of our physical and emotional health.

Schedule

I take great care to support individualized and healthy yoga practices and encourage students to pay close attention to what is happening in the moment. My over 25 years of experience blends a unique style that is strong yet gentle, and adaptable to the needs of the diverse client population I serve. Regular referrals from physical therapists and medical practitioners underscore my reputation.

Living Your Brilliance Series

This three session series will focus on how we can expand, both individually and as a community of women. We will work on our obstacles and anything that keeps us small and hidden. We will align internally with our greatest vision and mission and how we can fearlessly step forward into our family, community, and the world with our most authentic luminous version of ourselves. We work individually on ourselves, but I truly think we heal in community.

Each week we will focus on different aspect of ourselves creating a progressive foundation for internal strength and well-being. In week one we start working with our Body and then the following week we will focus on our Breath (prana), which greatly affects our communication with others and ourselves. On the 3rd week, we will explore how to befriend our own mind with all its dark secrets and constant dialog and we will take delight in our brilliance and see how much Joy and Celebration we can create.

Since I am at heart a yoga educator, I can’t help but give you weekly practices to support you between our times together. This will include gentle poses and simple breathing practices that you can do at home between our gatherings.
