Aranyani Yoga Studio was founded in 2014. After I finished my 200 hour yoga teacher training (Pranava Yoga Center, Colorado Springs), my mentor and friend, Michelle Truscelli as moving away. She asked me to take over the small practice that started in her basement. We were currently in an office space renting by the hour. In order to not lose what little yoga we had here in Woodland Park I agreed and began teaching classes before finishing my certification. You can imagine how nervous I was! I have never run a business yet here I was starting one. I could feel the need to begin to look for a space that was just ours as we could use our old space 7 hours a week. Good thing as the day I signed the lease on 321 W. Henrietta we received notice about our current spot being rented fully. My husband brought in a whole renovation crew to get the new space going, which had walls covered in carpet.!
My vision was to start an actual yoga studio here in Woodland Park, with different teachers, styles of yoga, workshops, everything a typical yoga studio offers that just was not available here. We have many teachers in town teaching on there own and I wanted to build a true community, a gathering space of yogis, teachers, coming together. I have learned about website building, yoga studio software, social media and more, all to streamline our services for you, our students. I wanted students to be able to come, buy a yoga pass with ease in the studio or online and be able to go to any class with any teacher.
In 2014 we were only able to offer Vinyasa. Now that has grown to include Rocket, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative and Gentle yoga, making us one of the most diverse studios around. We offer workshops, by our teachers and host guest teachers, offer yoga retreats, summer yoga in the park, yoga hikes and more. Hope to see you on the mat!
