Hello and welcome to Peaceful World Yoga!
Peaceful World Yoga came to life in 2013 in Westminster, Colorado when a seed idea that had been planted years before took hold and began to take root. Starting as a dream that arose from the space of the heart, to a community of human beings who have built a community who LIVE from the heart. Together, we have built a tribe of members who spread their individual joy and passions out into the community and beyond.
After teaching for 25 years in the public education system as a teacher, a literacy coach and counselor, founder, Melissa Spencer, envisioned and wrote a comprehensive and systematic mindfulness curriculum for youth in schools. The curriculum spans from preschool age children to high school students and beyond. Melissa blended her own personal practices with the youth in her life and saw tremendous shifts in behaviors, concentration, mental capabilities, relationships, social skills, resiliency, to name a few. The programs were shared with pilot schools and provided tools that would engage students, faculty,. and administration. In addition the curriculum addresses the critical needs of stress reduction and self-regulation she observed while working as a classroom teacher. From this vision grew the Peaceful Minds Curriculum, which has been adopted by schools across the Denver Metro area. With a properly prepared foundation, Peaceful World Yoga grew and blossomed and a movement was born.
Peaceful World Yoga has now grown to provide services and programs in mindfulness and yoga for schools, businesses, communities and individuals throughout the Colorado Front Range and beyond. Besides our Peaceful Minds Curriculum, PWY offers a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training (200 YTT), a 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training (300 YTT), a Certified Children's Yoga Teacher Training (RCYT), Diversity-Equity-Inclusion Program. After-school Yoga Enrichment Programs, Yoga and Mindfulness Workshops, multiple discipline yoga classes, and private cognitive/yoga/mindfulness sessions for individuals and groups. Peaceful World Yoga has also expanded into Senior Centers, Nursing Homes, and hospitals.
In addition to Yoga and Mindfulness programs, PWY offers Reiki Healings, Vibrational Sound Therapy, Thai Massage and many Ayurvedic therapeutic offerings. We are also available to work with you to tailor a program in your place of business and create a training to meet your specific needs whether local or out of state. Feel free to contact us to talk about how we can help you change the world!
As Peaceful World Yoga continues to grow and expand, we seek out instructors and community who are living a Yogic Lifestyle, so all teaching in from a place of authenticity. Living a Yogic Lifestyle does not mean someone practices yoga movement. There are Eight Limbs of Yoga that are beneficial for all human beings. As our staff and community grow, so do our practices, our consciousness, and our moral and ethical codes.
