When we started thinking about opening a studio, we kept coming back to three things - strength, connect, engage - that we were looking for in the larger yoga community.
There are so many great spaces and teachers in Denver (and around the country) and yet we found ourselves traveling far and wide to tap into those teachers and spaces that we felt truly elevated the practice and challenged us to be better people and global citizens - in each and every class. It occurred to us that if we could create a space that brought those components into one place, and could also deliver a high quality, thoughtful, intentional and challenging class Every. Single. Time. We might just be on to something special.
BBY’s teachers, students, and the neighborhood we live in are all integral to who we are and how we exist within the larger yoga community. Walking in to a class at BBY, whether it is your first time or your 500th, should be a special, welcoming, challenging and completely unpretentious experience.
Our core values are something we come back to time and time again.
1) Strengthen: You will find your power in our space. You will grow stronger in physical body, mental focus, and connection to your breath. You will develop deep and meaningful relationships with your fellow yogis, teachers and your practice.
2) Connection: BBY provides a place to connect to yourself. We will encourage you to connect to your breath, your body, mind, spirit and the world around you. This may even mean asking questions that ask you to look at how you think about the world.
3) Engagement: You will be challenged to engage physically, mentally and spiritually in every single class in some way. We will also encourage you to engage with your neighbors and the community around you.
Every class and each teacher at BBY not only embody these ideals but also, we each strive to show up with our truest selves every single time. It is this commitment to authenticity that allows us to be connected and engaged to our truest selves which, in turn, helps us support our students as they find their truest selves.
As a team of teachers, we are a tight knit group, committed to growing our practice and our studio community. Just like our yoga, we are a work in progress, a journey. Our experience as teachers, facilitators, guides, and as a studio is evolving. We believe in always learning, always growing and always challenging ourselves.
This means embracing the valleys and the peaks, it means we explore our biases, question the way things have always been done, examine our habits and struggles and that we are committed to becoming familiar with that space outside of our own comfort zone. We value feedback, constructive and complementary and we honor each other’s differences, style and experiences because after all, isn’t that what makes life so special? In some ways, it becomes clear that our differences are truly the only thing that unite us.
We EmbracE Different Perspectives
Our life experiences, beliefs and values shape who we are and how we interact in the world. For example, my life lens is from the point of view of a white woman of privilege born and raised in Colorado and the studio owner, means that I regularly question my responsibility to and for issues like gentrification, racism, advocacy and activism. As a yogi, it means I strive to be aware of how my actions affect other people and what it means to truly embrace inclusivity. As a mother, it means I feel a responsibility to raise a kind, brave, and mindful child.
We all have bias - both implicit and explicit. As a studio and teachers, we do our best to be aware of the bias we bring to our interactions and experiences. This - just like our yoga journey - is evolving. It takes practice, a willingness and commitment to try and view things from a different lens than our own.
We respect and value the experiences that make each of us who we are, honoring that we likely haven’t lived that experience and so are committed to finding ways to discuss, embrace and possibly even grow through those ideas that may challenge us.

My mission is to inspire others to self-love. To know that each person possesses greatness in their own skin, soul, and mind. My attitude within my teaching is to serve the students and allow them to find creativity through movement and making new shapes with their bodies. I desire to create uniqueness in my flows and to get my students to try things they didn’t know they could do. I am an E-YRT 200, CPT, and enjoy the edge of yoga meeting plyometric power movements. I have specialized in yin and restorative yoga as well, completing a balanced approach to grounding and intensity. When I am not at the studio, or the gym, I enjoy photography, cooking, and reading.
My classes are filled with breath, heart, warmth and great music. I believe in slowing down and savoring each breath and fully feeling into each movement, both in my own practice, and when leading. I view teaching as an offering, as my opportunity to share what I love and cherish about yoga, which is time for breath and time for feeling alive, empowered and strong. I typically gets on my mat before each class and feel what is needed in my body, believing in the wisdom of our own bodies to guide our practice and dictate what we need. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 sons, friends, family and 2 dobermans. I completed my 200 hour YTT in 2014, under a Baptiste and a Bhakti trainer.
After more than a decade of consistent yoga practice I decided I wanted to share my knowledge and passion for this practice with others. Yoga has provided an outlet that allows me to shed what I don’t need and make space for what I do need. My intention for my classes is to guide students to this sense of balance so they can bring it into their everyday lives. I became certified in December 2016 with CorePower Yoga’s 200 hour training program. I hope to bring a lightness and playfulness to my classes so that my students walk away feeling they have more of what they need and less of what they don’t.
I quickly fell in love with the practice as a way to get fit and healthier and discovered how important yoga was for my physical, emotional, and mental health. As an avid runner, I've found yoga an incredible compliment be able to perform at my best. Through yoga, I have reinvented myself, and have a new life mission supporting others through all of life’s joys, difficulties, and inevitable struggles. Recently, I began the transition to a plant based lifestyle. I'm fascinated with nutrition and its relationship with mental as well as physical health. Running began my journey toward a healthier lifestyle, but yoga and nutrition has allowed me to dig deeper in finding my healthiest and happiest self. I completed my RYT200 training at Asana Studio in Arvada, Colorado.
My name is Sarah Edmonds and I am thrilled to be part of this amazing community here at Better Buzz. I am a Colorado native and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I live in Highlands Ranch with my wonderful husband, Nigel, and our 4 kids. I LOVE being in the mountains, especially hiking and skiing - I have found much solace there over the years. I also enjoy going to concerts, traveling, photography and, of course, YOGA!!! I am honored to be on this journey with all of you! Namaste! I completed my RYT200 training at Lifetime Fitness in Centennial, Colorado.
Self-discovery is a beautiful thing, and just one of many facets of yoga that keeps me coming back. I first came to yoga simply as a means to help ease some of the strain I was experiencing in my knees, but found the practice has shaped and changed my life in ways innumerable. It has given my body more strength and endurance, it has challenged me to deeply explore my mental landscape. I believe yoga presents infinite potential for physical, mental, and spiritual growth, and am grateful to be part of this community. I love guiding students through a physically challenging and mentally engaging practice and love all that I learn from and with everyone in our local yoga tribe. Let’s root for each other, and watch each other grow. I completed my RYT200 at LifeTime Fitness in Centennial, Colorado.
Yoga came into my life when years of running and high-intensity no-pain, no-gain workouts started to take their toll. I wanted to find something that would still push me physically but bring me a sense of peace and clarity. I teach empowering classes that emphasize strength training and a fusion of the HIIT exercises I love along with the flow of Power Vinyasa. When I'm not getting my Namaste on, I enjoy spending time with my family and my fur children, hiking and getting out in the mountains, reading, and eating anything I can get my hands on. I'm so blessed and excited to be a part of the dynamic team at Better Buzz and can't wait to slay with you on and off the mat! I completed my RYT200 training at the River in Denver, Colorado.
I've been practicing yoga for almost 15 years. It is woven into the fabric of my being and my passion is bringing the peace, joy, and strength of yoga into my community. I enjoy teaching challenging classes, encouraging students to explore their physical and spiritual edge. My classes offer students the opportunity to take risks and work hard to grow in their practice. I also enjoy having fun and designing soulful classes to some of my favorite artists. It is my sincere hope that taking risks and having fun on the mat translates into students finding their purpose and the strength to follow it off the mat. I am so excited to join the BetterBuzz community and be part of a badass team building strength and love in the Sunnyside neighborhood.
Yoga is a journey. It breaks society’s conditioned norms of checking things off a list, of striving for perfection, of always thinking what’s next. Yoga is presence within the moment and excitement for personal growth. I first discovered yoga as a form of fitness in 2012, but quickly realized it wasn’t just my biceps that were growing - it was my soul. I became addicted to the practice, craving space within my own authentic self for the first time. When I’m on my mat, I get lost in the moment and in growing my light. I hope to provide my students with a space where they can be vulnerable, leave the outside world behind, and look within themselves to find the power of their own inner light. When we all shine we make the world a brighter place. I completed my RYT200 at CorePower Yoga in 2015.
I am a creative. Raised in a family where the hand was an essential tool, my earliest expressions came in the form of musicianship, tactile arts, and visual storytelling. Drawing from my ancestry, I weave my sequences from the wisdom of the Aztecas, and the Cherokee; I routinely use my instincts to support the needs of my students, rarely repeating the same class twice. A born traveler and linguist, I supplement the flavor of my teachings with experiences gathered from far corners of the earth. With hundreds of hours of teaching experience in Vinyasa, Yin, Prenatal, and Bilingual yoga, my empowering sequences will deliver you to numerous energetic peaks. Whether in a public class or private instruction, my supportive assists and fondness of storytelling will leave you feeling fresh, light, and connected. I am an E-RYT instructor with a 500 RYT certification through Kindness Yoga.
Life has a beautiful yet unpredictable cadence. In the past few years, I've lived in different countries, moved multiple times, married my best friend, lost and found important people, started a business (Better Buzz Yoga!) and recently gave birth to the most incredible, brave and kind baby boy, Colden Briggs. Yoga reminds me that no matter what is going on in my world, I know that if I can make it to my mat, I have the opportunity to reconnect, reset and find my center. This practice is about connection for me and I am grateful for the daily reminder of the journey we are all on. I love hearing the collective sigh of letting go, creating union with breath and the simple act of being in a space with others, wherever we are on our path. I find it to be a lovely metaphor for life and I'm honored to have the opportunity to practice with you whenever we may meet! I completed my RYT200 training at Spirit Yoga Studios in San Diego.
My teaching style is light, bright, challenging, playful, inspiring and sometimes upside down. I first discovered Yoga in college where I happily practiced and studied Iyengar. After a long chunk of time my yoga practiced was wakened out of its hibernation when I took my first heated vinyasa class in 2008. The rest is history, one may say. I have a playful way of bringing you back to your childhood and back to your own personal freedom by gently challenging you to declare freedom from all self-made limitations. I will work to always remind you that the world is filled with more beauty and goodness than not and that YOU are perfect!

After spending the last decade cultivating a regular yoga practice, I am passionate about sharing my experience and supporting others on their journey. I hope to become a catalyst for change by creating a safe and loving space for personal exploration. I believe we are a physical embodiment of the sacred source, and our purpose is to not only witness, but to participate in the inexhaustible celebration we call life. By utilizing the power of breath control, I strive to help others reach new levels of awareness and appreciation for the magic and mystery of our world, both internally and externally.
