Colleen stepped onto her yoga mat in 2001 for her first yoga practice. After that first class, she knew she had found something incredible. With the guidance and inspiration of dedicated teachers, she continued to explore and deepen her own practice. In fact, each time she stepped onto her mat she learned something new about herself and left feeling lighter, stronger and more at peace. Her thirst for knowledge about this ancient path of yoga led her to enroll in a 200 Hour Teacher Training program. She is certified to teach Power Vinyasa and holds the ERYT 200 hour certification recognized by Yoga Alliance.
In the summer of 2006, Colleen completed Level 1 Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste. It was a week that transformed her practice, teaching and her life. With the support of her husband and three sons, she completed the Level 2 Teacher Training in June of 2007. Studying with Baron and other Baptiste certified teachers reinforces her belief that this practice has no limitations. Colleen states, “Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga opened my eyes, my mind and heart to the power that we have to be our best selves, on and off the mat. We come to yoga for many reasons, we stay because it not only sculpts our bodies but awakens our spirit. The only requirement is an open mind and a willingness to grow.”
Colleen loves to share her passion for yoga and considers it a gift to be a part of the yoga community. She believes in the healing power and therapeutic benefits of a regular yoga practice and has witnessed the transformation that a dedicated practice has brought to her life as well as the lives of others. Each day she is inspired by her students and is grateful for a practice that continues to be a source of inspiration, joy and growth.
In 2010, Colleen received her certification as a Baptiste Power Vinyasa teacher. She recently opened Seva Power Yoga, a studio dedicated to vinyasa yoga in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
