Kyle Baxter Director
Graduated Bikram Yoga teacher training fall 2003.

I was an Arborist for a decade in Boulder County. Being a professional tree climber was hard on my body, so I started doing yoga. I started Yoga at the YMCA in Boulder and then moved on to try many types of yoga, but fell in love with Bikram Yoga. My two favorite students are my parents.






Corbin and Bridget Baxter

I am originally from Pueblo Colorado, and graduated from Pueblo East High School in 1994. While in High School I enjoyed running cross country, playing basketball and running track. Lettering 11 times qualifying for state 3 years in cross country and all four years in track, I was a state champion in 1992 in the 800 meters. I am currently in my high school hall of fame.

In January 1999, I tried my first Bikram Yoga Class. After a college career of running cross country and track at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana "my body hurt". I had no feeling in my feet or calf muscles. After a couple of months of practicing Bikram Yoga my feet and calf muscles started to having feeling. I was hooked!!  

Running and competing was all I knew. Bikram Yoga gave me chance to learn about me. How to control my breath, what my limits are and that I am the only person that I am responsible for. I enjoy teaching Bikram Yoga - I have the best JOB in the world. I hope to see you in the room soon.

I attended Teacher Trainning Fall 2005. Then I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado where I started teaching 15-20 classes a week, and bought the studio in September 2006.

Wendy Woods Wendy graduated from Bikram Yoga’s College of India in Spring of 2003. I started practicing Bikram yoga in San Francisco in the fall of 2000. I was living in San Francisco in the height of the dot com craze. Needless to say, life was very hectic, I was very stressed and had a job that demanded a lot of travel from me. My body started to show the signs of the fast paced lifestyle I was living. I had gone to a doctor to seek treatment for the various “ailments” I was feeling. He suggested I start taking vitamins, as the older you get, the more “help” your body needs. I was thinking at the time, “I am only 32 years old, what happens when I turn 42? 52?” I wasn’t ready to accept that my body was “breaking down.” 

        A friend recommended I try Bikram yoga. I must admit, I was not hooked during my first class. But the benefits my body was feeling from the practice were truly amazing. Not only did I not, nor do I still today, take vitamins, but I have more energy and vitality than ever before. I attribute yoga to helping me in other areas of my life as well, especially biking.

    I grew to love the yoga so much, that 2 ½ years later I decided I wanted to share my experience with others. I decided to become a teacher of the yoga that I love still so much today! My goal is to help students realize ALL of the benefits of yoga, not just the outward physical appearance. After 11 years, I am still trying to wrap my left leg in eagle, but I still enjoy the practice and have given up the feeling of frustration I used to have. This too, has been a tremendous benefit in other areas of my life.

     When I am not doing yoga, you can find me on my bike or walking “the prettiest dog in the whole wide world,” Lexi.




Karen Alvarez 

Karen has been practicing yoga on and off since 2002, but It was not until she stepped back onto a mat at Bikram Yoga Fort Collins in Old Town with a messed up mind and body that she realized how much she really needed and wanted this yoga… not just any yoga… Bikram yoga! Within 3 weeks of starting practice again her pain and immobility from an old shoulder injury was completely gone and she was already weaning herself off of her anti-depressants.

In the summer of 2009 Karen decided the next step in her journey was to go to teacher training. So, she thought about it, talked it over with her husband, then made up her mind and she was off to Las Vegas for the Fall 2009 Bikram Yoga Teacher Training session. She has been teaching since December 2009 and has loved every minute of it. She says every class she teaches is an absolute honor, pleasure and joy.

Yoga has helped guide Karen on her life journey by enabling her to recognize her authentic self as well as the immense importance of balancing the mind, body, and spirit. More than anything, Karen would like to inspire others so that they too can feel the same bliss she feels upon completion of a Bikram yoga class. She does her best to teach her classes with the knowledge she gained at teacher training, from the senior teachers that ran the training as well as from Bikram himself. Karen hopes that everyone that she has the opportunity to teach leaves with a new union and sense of self. That they may have greater physical and mental strength, balance, and flexibility not only while on the mat, but in every aspect of their lives.

Outside of practicing and teaching yoga, Karen is a full-time mommy and works part time from home with her husband in the field of Real Estate Investing and Property Management, and enjoys many hobbies including, but not limited to traveling, reading, hiking, biking, and spending time with her children, family and friends.
