Keri Bergeron, (E-RYT 200, YACEP, MSPT) is a practicing physical therapist with 16 years of experience and has been teaching yoga and training teachers for over a decade. Keri is passionate about teaching the “why.” She believes that when people understand function rather than memorizing anatomy, they are able to integrate concepts into their practice and their lives.

Jenny Loftus (E-RYT 500, YACEP) is a certified teacher, licensed massage therapist, and registered nurse working in Denver, CO. Her varied experience has led to a deep understanding of how to support healthy aging through yoga.

Arturo Peal is an Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) instructor and a certified Yoga therapist. He co-leads the Therapeutic Yoga Training Program and holds a Master’s degree in Chinese medicine, practices craniosacral therapy, and has been involved in the alternative health-care field for more than 30 years. Arturo teaches A&P for Yoga teacher trainings plus studios, bodyworkers, and other movement specialists. His weekly class in Therapeutic Yoga serves students who are unable to do a traditional Vinyasa practice. He integrates his expertise in anatomy, kinesiology, Chinese medicine, and the healing processes to present a multidimensional understanding of the human body.
