“I recently did my 200-HR Intensive Yoga Teacher Training with Colby at the Elevate yoga studio… A m a z i n g ! I feel like I have taken the plunge into the depths of the ocean (being Yoga studies & life)! Now, better equipped than ever before with the tools & strength (everything I’ve learned in this training), that I will always have and know how to use to brave the sea, whether the waves are calm or rough.

I thank you Colby, so much! This opportunity to study the sacred practice of yoga with such a skilled teacher is truly a blessing and I have to say, it has changed my life.”

Deep Gratitude & Many Blessings,


Meet Colby:

Colby has been following her passion for the last decade teaching group classes, workshops, and international yoga retreats. She also works one on one with individuals as a Personal Mastery Coach and Energy Healing Practitioner and Teacher helping them to cultivate greater peace, fulfillment and joy in their lives.

“Teaching yoga truly is my heart’s passion and purpose – and my practice, an intimate act of relationship to life and the breath, and connection to spirit. I love helping people unlock the magic and mystery of their breath, body and soul, bringing greater presence, depths of love and connection and authentic, inspired action forward in their lives.

I was first introduced to yoga through a Bikram class on the Upper East Side in New York City, in which I left feeling profoundly transformed in some beautiful and freeing way.  Being a classically trained dancer of 25 years, this new and exciting way of breathing, being and moving deeply inspired me. This led to my 500-HR training with senior teachers Chrissy Carter and Jodie Rufty of YogaWorks NYC and to my decade of studies with spiritual teacher Derek O’Neill, who has profoundly and positively impacted my life in ways I could not have imagined.

My practice and my teaching consist of purposeful, precise, passionate, pranayamic-based fluid action and movement.”



Meet Lauren:

Lauren is a native to the Hudson Valley and was drawn to her yoga mat after a very difficult time in her life, after losing her father, who was her best friend, in hopes of feeling whole again. She fell in love with the practice & connecting with the body through the Breath. Lauren realized the benefits of not only the asana, but especially the spirituality, relaxation and peace that only yoga has allowed her body and mind to settle into, while on the mat and long after class ends.

Lauren has been a student of Colby’s since 2013, and was instantly drawn to her teaching style & energy. When Colby announced an upcoming retreat in Costa Rica back in 2014, Lauren knew she needed to attend. Timing did not align for the 2014 retreat, but right there on her mat she made a promise to herself that she would embark on the lifestyle changes necessary to make sure she would attend Colby’s Costa Rica retreat in 2015. That retreat planted an even deeper connection to yoga & she went back the following year and received her 200 HR Hatha Vinyasa teacher certification in Lake Arenal Costa Rica, under the guidance of the inspiring, Lori Myles-Carullo. Lauren is very passionate and excited be a co-leader in Elevate 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training Program.

You can expect a balance of sthira (steadiness) and sukha (ease) in Lauren’s classes. She hopes to create a space where you feel supported and leave class relaxed, aligned & empowered. Her hope is that you will learn to practice yoga on your mat & also live out its teachings in the real world.


Meet Kaylan:

Kaylan’s love for yoga started when she took her first class in high school on Nantucket Island. Years later after attending a yoga retreat in Costa Rica with Elevate Well’s very own Colby & Ray Rolando, she was hooked. The benefits it had on releasing her feelings of anxiety & the amount of growth & inspiration she gained from this experience were life changing.

That winter Kaylan made a promise to herself to follow her heart and deepen her practice. She returned a year later to complete her 200 hour teacher training at Mystic Yoga Academy under the amazing Lori Myles-Carullo. Kaylan is inspired to take her teaching to the next level as a co-leader in Elevate’s 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training!

Kaylan’s intention is to teach a gentle practice to create healing through physical, emotional, & spiritual awakening. She believes in the power of aromatherapy and incorporates it into all of her classes. She is also a certified Reiki healer. Kaylan’s classes will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and renewed. Join Kaylan and allow yourself to let go breath by breath creating more space deep within your soul.
