Meet Kimi Rae

Hi y’all! My name is Kimi Rae. I grew up a bun head dancing my way through school because the books were a bore. I had deep passion for self expression and movement as a child and as I matured Yoga became my outlet for all things right. My most important job is a mama, a yoga-mama, that is. I am a hustler. Whether I am juggling my 3 vivacious boys or dealing YOGA locally, I am on the go, always. I have learned the importance of unplugging and my greatest gift is sharing my love and knowledge of Yoga with others. I am the teacher trainer ERYT 200 YOGA ALLIANCE at Yogaja Yoga and I ran my own studio called, TONIC for 3 years. I am the Yoga Ambassador for Wingate Wyndham Hotels. I am certified in Power Vinyasa RYT, Prenatal, Pilates CPT, ACE, Barre, Reiki, and I am constantly continuing my education on the practice. I believe I am always a student and my greatest teachers are my children and yoga students. I am innately a lover, a giver, and healer. I am blessed beyond measure and wiser from my lessons in life. I truly believe we are all perfectly imperfect. Traveling and Yoga are my two favorite things…and Sami is my favorite yogi… together we have created our dream retreat and are honored to share it with you!

Meet Sami Lea

Sami graced the cover of Colorado Yoga Magazine in the summer of 2015 and has been featured in various national yoga and wellness publications. In 2014, Sami was selected to teach yoga at The White House as part of the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Out of the studio, Sami has served as a creative director and brand strategist for Yoga + Life Magazine, Time to Yoga, Origin Magazine, Mantra Magazine, Baptiste Institute, and more.
