Signe Hartmann
I have always been an active person. I grew up cross country skiing and running. Then in college I rowed for the University of Wisconsin and then for the U.S. Women's Lightweight team. When I came to Colorado I was excited to find the mountains and yoga. Iyengar yoga gave me an opportunity to move inward and become more meditative, reflective and spiritual in my movement. I love teaching Iyengar yoga and helping others learn more about their body and the union between their own body, mind, and spirit.
