Saraphina Mesmer

Saraphina is a renowned and beloved teacher of Yoga since 2007 in the Denver area. To hundreds of students, she provides core instruction for Yoga Teacher Training. Saraphina Yoga’s signature style is dance-influenced flow through sequences of poses. A life long dancer, Saraphina inspires deeper breath with spinal motions and fluid movements throughout the body. In this practice, the subtle motions between each Asana are given as much attention as individual forms.

Bhakti Yoga is being in the service of love and devotion. Saraphina hosts regular sacred singing events at Shiva Sai Mandir, Denver focused on group participation and experiences, more than performing. In singing Bhajans, songs sung in Kirtan style, we can be in a state of union. Saraphina studied raga with Chaitanya Kabir and offers regular bhajan gatherings.

Saraphina’s training includes a decade of meditation immersions at an ashram in Penukonda, India. Bring the essence of ancient knowledge into your practice of yoga and connect back to your inner self. Saraphina has received advanced training in Sai Shakti Healing meditation techniques.

Guest Instructors

Annie Martens


For over 11 years Annie has been formally practicing and studying yoga all over the world. In 2017 she received her 200-HR YTT certificate in Rishikesh, India and has since studied in Los Angeles, Boston, Cambodia and now her hometown of Denver, where she considers herself a student just as much as she does a teacher. In 2019, Annie returned to India to study Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda. The perspective she has gained from learning in both Eastern and Western environments continues to reaffirm to her that yoga can look like many different things, and it is ultimately a practice of Self-discovery.

Annie’s intention as an instructor is to provide students with practical ways of how to make yoga part of their everyday life, rather than just something they “do” when they are at the studio. Her Hatha-based classes are appropriate for students healing from injuries, beginners, or long-time students looking to be re-inspired by the roots of their practice. Annie stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement and is an advocate for her fellow LGBTQ+ community. Ultimately, she believes when we take better care of ourselves we are taking better care of the planet.

More guest instructors will be announced closer to the start date…
