This cooling practice welcomes deep relaxation to the body, to help you unwind and close your day. Long held poses work slowly past muscle to open and release long held tightness and tension, by lengthening and softening connective tissue which creates flexibility.
"May we be the ones who hold the doors, who hold faces, who hold the space for the pain and the brilliance, who hold the light and the salt, the complexity and the simplicity, the silence and the storm, the ones who hold our opinions loosely and love ferociously."
Wednesday & Saturday 9 am
Primarily longer held poses, many breaths per pose, gentle stretching, and stillness to assist in spacious reflection and contemplative meditation. A place to recharge - leave feeling tended to, and yet revitalized from the gift of engagement.

- I could not love Haven more. First of all, you feel you are up above the world in an inviting fairy tale-like tree house. When you need quiet, direction, hope, rest, exertion, challenge, peace, gratitude or just a break from your life, this is the place to come. Each instructor offers a different fragrance of Heaven, of Goodness, of God, and you come away feeling nourished, reoriented, and directed back to joy. Excellent, indeed!!! -Julie
-Haven Yoga Studio is absolutely a physical and spiritual manifestation of the meaning of haven (a place of safety and refuge). It's a slice of Heaven on earth. From the moment I walk through the door I feel an exhale and release of all that I hold too tightly. The quaint and thoughtful atmosphere is so delightful, so safe, so adorable and lovely, such a perfect space for practicing yoga. I find the Restore class to be rejuvenating and restorative for my mind, body and heart and such a mindful way to facilitate communion with the Holy Spirit. The Instructors at Haven are not only excellent and inspiring in the instruction and practice of yoga, but the grace and love and thoughtful intention that flows from them sets them apart. What a special place and special experience! -Sarah
- I was brand new to yoga the first time I visited the Colorado Springs Haven Studio. I loved the look and feel of the room and was immediately greeted with warm smiles from the teacher and the other students. The instructions were easy to understand and join in although I wasn't familiar with the moves. My favorite thing about the class was the spiritual focus on God and His love for us. I came very broken and needy and was accepted with open arms by every staff member. I have spent several months now with my new Haven family and these people have ministered to my heart on so many occasions. Haven is truly a "haven" for those in grief. The teachers have all been very sensitive to my season of life and my personal process. I leave class feeling relieved and peaceful and more aware of God's nearness to me. Haven is a one-of-a-kind place. -Bonnie
-The ladies at this studio are GIFTED. What an amazing sanctuary to go and feel loved, to feel good about my body, and to be led in spirit-led yoga while worshipping the Lord! You can count on, if you wish, getting the perfect adjustments, little massages on your temples, toes, etc., and maybe even prayed over. It's a unique studio, but not so much that you feel like you're not getting in a good workout. You must visit Haven Yoga - it's truly a gem in Colorado Springs. -Rene
