INSTRUCTORS

 

Trinity Wellness Studio instructors and therapist all take pride in their journey that has brought them to teaching the art of yoga and Pilates.  Our training and experience has taken us to some amazing places both physically and mentally and we enjoy sharing our journeys with those who come to the studio.

 

Our boutique style studio allows for smaller class sizes to create a more intimate experience and allow for more hands on attention to the client or student.  

Stacey Underwood Holzer

OWNER/Certified Pilates & Yoga Instructor

 

Stacey acquired Trinity Wellness Studio in October 2010 after a 10yr career in the ski industry with Intrawest.  During her corporate career, she completed her 200hr yoga teacher training certification after a friend recommended the program from CorePower.  

In 2012, she received her Pilates certification from the PhysicalMind Institute.  Her training has continued with the most recent certification as a Prenatal Yoga Therapist.  In 2014, she gave birth to her daughter, Zoe, who has continued to inspire and contribute to Trinity as an aspiring yogi and Pilates instructor. 

 

She is currently working on her certification for C.A.R.E (Center for Aromatherapy Research & Education) to become a certified teacher in both Vita Flex and the Raindrop Technique.  In 2019 she completed her certification as a Health and Wellness Coach. 

Emily Klipa

YOGA INSTRUCTOR

Emily has moved to Boulder.  We hope to see her back at the studio to teach some workshops in the future.

Emily completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training through Yoga On High in Columbus, OH in 2017. Her classes aim to provide students with a welcoming and gentle environment where they can develop self-love, wellness, and the strength to recharge for their busy lives. She hopes her students will find community together and learn more about their true nature in the process. In her spare time she enjoys being outdoors, traveling, and making memories with loved ones.

Kate Dupays

YOGA INSTRUCTOR

Kate will be moving back to France this month...we're looking forward to having her teach her again in the near future!

Kate, a Colorado native, has been a yoga practitioner since 1999.  She was certified in 2003 with a 200 hour Hatha yoga training in Denver, Colorado.  Impassioned by the healing potential of yoga, Kate went on to study 500 hours of Structural Yoga Therapy (SYT) under Mukunda Styles. SYT training provided Kate with a solid foundation, based on practicing with ‘respect and love,’ and focusing on breathing, alignment, and adapting each yoga practice to the individual.  

 

Kate’s practice has a strong Anusara influence after having spent several years attending Anusara classes and workshops in the Denver area while completing her BSN nursing degree at Regis University in 2008.  Kate appreciates the life affirming and joyful philosophy of Anusara yoga with its focus on balanced action informed by the breath and physical alignment principles.

 

Given Kate’s history of following yoga teachers John Friend (founder of Anusara) and Desi Springer, she feels that her most recent training in April 2018 with the new Bowspring postural alignment method was somewhat inevitable and overdue.  Also, having some hip pain with her traditional asana practice, Kate was ready to explore new ideas on functional movement and our standard model of alignment.  Kate completed the Bowspring Level 1 teacher training and is feeling the healing benefits of this new daily practice.

 

Currently visiting Summit County with her husband and three sons, Kate lives permanently in the Savoie region of the French Alps.  Since 2010, Kate has been developing yoga classes in the Trois Vallées ski resort and surrounding villages.  This cultural adventure has helped Kate communicate more effectively with all levels of students in both French and English.  She says the experience has been humbling and required her to look closely at the yoga tradition and the lifelong learning it entails.  In France she enjoys her all-level community classes and workshops with all ages.

 

Kate typically incorporates slow vinyasa, longer holds with pranayama, and work with the bhandas in her classes.  She is also now teaching level one Bowspring classes. Kate's mission in class is to create space for her students to cultivate freedom, balance, and trust in their bodies and lives.  Kate believes it is an important part of her role as a yoga teacher to empower students to carry yoga into their daily lives.

 

While Kate is visiting Colorado she is available for private lessons for individuals desiring One On One guidance with asana and breathing techniques to improve physical and mental/emotional health. Kate is also excited to introduce the Bowspring.

 

‘The Bowspring is an ideal template of the body’s dynamic postural alignment which anyone can learn for increased functional movement, agility, and springy power.

 

Bowspring method is a new postural system for optimizing everyday functionality through dynamic, open, and curvy posture’.

 

To learn more about the Bowspring method before joining Kate for a Bowspring class, please read through the information on the official Bowspring site.

Kate hopes to see you soon!
