Trish has had a passion for physical well-being from an early age. As a life-long athlete, she has competed in road races and triathlons and was an avid swimmer, skier and mountain biker. Her passion for physical excellence was dimmed by adult-onset asthma in her 30s. Over time, many of those activities became no longer viable or enjoyable.
Though she had taken many yoga classes over the years, she ‘found’ yoga (or yoga found her) in 2014 and that passion for physical excellence was rekindled. She began a regular practice, reconnecting with her body and expanded her exploration of the mind-body connection.
Trish holds a BA in Kinesiology & Applied Physiology from CU Boulder. She has taught many fitness classes including cardio and group strength training. She sees yoga as an exploration into the body, mind and breath. Her focus is on working with older adults to share the exploration of what we CAN do as we age as opposed to what we can’t do.
Trish has lived in Salida since 2002 with her husband, Mike, and their Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Rennie. They love to travel in their VW Westfalia, and were living vanlife before #vanlife was a thing. They have driven from Salida to Ushuaia, Argentina, and have made many trips down the Baja peninsula. She also works at the Salida SteamPlant as an event planner.
