About Colleen Boyd

I started practicing yoga regularly over 25 years ago (almost 50 years ago if you count the times I practiced with my mom on our living room floor with L ilias on PBS TV)!  I was a reluctant gym-goer, so the first time I did Hot Yoga,  I was delighted...

I started practicing yoga regularly over 25 years ago (almost 50 years ago if you count the times I practiced with my mom on our living room floor with Lilias on PBS TV)! I was a reluctant gym-goer, so the first time I did Hot Yoga,  I was delighted to find something that made me feel so good and it kept me coming back. Over the years, I found many other styles of yoga that I like and realized the added benefit of the practice; not only does it de-stress my mind, but I have also connected to something greater than myself. It became my passion and lifestyle. I did not seek out to own a yoga studio, it found me.  We offered yoga to many in our community, but I couldn’t truly say that I felt comfortable having just anyone come in.  If they were not fairly fit and flexible, I found it very challenging and frustrating to know what to offer them and have them leave my class feeling like they had a great experience.  Fortunately, I was introduced to Functional Movement then I completed my advanced 500 RYT Training in 2017 with Shawn through Open Doors (with many of the other  instructors) that had an emphasis on therapeutic essentials which means I can now offer yoga to most anybody regardless of their physical ability, body type, or age, but also to folks dealing with trauma, anxiety and/or depression. The teacher training we offer at  isn’t focused on any particular style of yoga but has an emphasis on Functional Movement.  We have become known as a studio for almost  and everyone. 

 

I am a mama to Maxwell and life-partner/wife to Jay, and architect. As the owner, instructor, & team leader at ddy, it is my intention to create space for those who also have that appreciation and passion for sharing and practicing yoga. I could not do it without my family, friends, students, and team who have helped to build this amazing community here in Las Cruces.

As I like to remind myself and my students, “There is no there, there” and just keep showing up to practice, practice, practice this thing we call life.
