She is continuing her yoga education and is currently working on her 500 hour level yoga teacher training with Renee DeTar, Regional Yoga Director, Genesis Health Clubs.

Her wish is to bring all the wonderful benefits of yoga to all people of all ages.
As a chiropractic physician for 18 years, Barbara Quadlander has found her passion in helping others improve their health holistically. She began practicing yoga over ten years ago and found that it is a natural pathway toward health. Her aspiration is to encourage others to experience yoga and realize that the health benefits from regular practice far exceed increased flexibility and strength. Barbara began teaching yoga in 2009, is registered as a RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance and is working on a RYT 500. She is also a certified Centergy instructor through Body Training Systems.
I have been practicing yoga since 1997. I came to yoga with a background of more than 10 years of dance training. Then and now, I love that yoga brings strength, flexibility and challenging new ways to move the body. I also treasure the clarity and peace of mind I experience in yoga.
In 2008 I completed the registration requirements of the 200 hour registration with Yoga Alliance. I cherish that as a teacher I am able to help others improve their lives through yoga practice. Yoga is for everyone, whether you choose a vigorous, flowing class or a session of deep stretching. I would like anyone interested in yoga to know that you don’t have to be flexible to start doing yoga. Come as you are. Practice regularly and you will see the benefits.
I am continuing my yoga education under the guidance of Renee DeTar, Regional Yoga Director of Genesis Health Clubs. In my personal practice I love the challenge of arm balances, inversions and backbends. In all classes, safety and alignment are emphasized. I teach Gentle Yoga, Yoga I, Vinyasa and Power classes at Rock Road. I am available for yoga private lessons for those who would like a personalized, focused experience of yoga.
I have been sharing my passion for health and fitness for 23 years. Throughout these years, I have been a certified personal trainer, nutrition coach, and have taught a wide variety of Group Fitness classes. I have had the good fortune of being a guest Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Yoga teacher at various resorts in Jamaica, Curacao, Dominican Republic, and Mexico.
While I truly love all activities that get the heart pumping and the muscles activated, I just can’t get enough Yoga. I fell in love with connecting breath with movement and the clarity of mind, the calmness, and the consciousness that this connection cultivated. My primary teachers are Kathleen & Wade Mortensen owners of Maya Yoga Studio. I completed my 200 hour training with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini.
Witnessing the transformations of students as they grow their practice is a very honorable experience for me. My teaching is firmly rooted in the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga (my personal practice) and I am registered with Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200.
Health and fitness have always been a constant in my life, but I have also worked in the consumer products industry, been the co-owner of a Denver based retail business, and a medical sales representative. I hold a BS in Business from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and an MBA from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I am enthusiastic and hopeful as I witness more and more individuals taking control of their health and coming to the realization that their lifestyle choices are the key determinant of their health, well being and consequently their quality of life.
In my private yoga sessions, I take a simple no nonsense approach to addressing my clients complete wellness needs.

Beth began practicing yoga for the stretching and injury prevention aspect and soon discovered the mind/body/spirit element of yoga to be a holistic and healing approach to living life. She looks forward to sharing the many healthy benefits of yoga: greater flexibility, strength, endurance and improved posture with others, along with the calming and stress relieving benefits that can be experienced through yoga. Beth is available at our Rock Road and East Central locations for one-on-one privates.
