Power Beats


This class is taught by:

Kristen Burns

Kristen grew up in the east coast and moved to Colorado in 1993 to attend Colorado State University, where she earned a degree in Natural Resources Recreation & Tourism. This led her to the Vail Valley. She fell in love with yoga in 2006, when she was introduced to Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. At first it was all about the physical challenge, but eventually yoga turned into more of a spiritual journey for Kristen. Once she started to feel and experience all the benefits yoga has to offer, Kristen became hooked. Yoga has truly changed her life. She completed Level One training with Baron Baptiste in 2011 and Level Two in 2012, where she learned to grow, teach and live from her heart. Kristen is committed to sharing herself fully and supporting others in their growth. Now a certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, she uses her warm spirit and big smile to guide you through a powerful, heartfelt and joyful class. Off the mat, you will find Kristen playing outside with her little girl Hannah and puppy Bailey.

Julie Kiddoo

Julie lives in Eagle-Vail, (Avon) Colorado with her husband, Tom, and their two children, Charlie and Catie, and their Golden Retriever, Nala.  Julie is the owner Revolution Power Yoga, a Baptiste Affiliate studio.  She is a 500 hour certified Baptiste Yoga teacher and a LifeForce Yoga Level 1 practitioner. Julie loves being on her yoga mat, spending time in nature, road trips with her family and having fun with friends and family.
After her first Baptiste Yoga class in 2007, Julie felt something different. She was touched, moved and inspired in a way that she had never been before. Through experiences on her mat, Julie learned that ultimately she was the only one who had the power to change her life.  Julie’s intention for her students is to inspire and empower so that they expand the boundaries of what they think is possible for themselves on and off their mat.

Bree DiBernardo

Originally from South Florida, Bree came to the mountains right after college, to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. Eager to continue her yoga practice in her new state, she stumbled upon Revolution Power Yoga. Initially coming to the studio for the yoga, she ended up staying for the community. After two short weeks, and a great deal of inspiration gained from the teachers at Revolution Power Yoga, the decision was an easy one when it came to signing up for the 200 HR teacher training. When Bree is not practicing yoga, she enjoys snowboarding, hiking Colorado's 14er's, taking painting classes, traveling, and relaxing on the beach whenever she is back in her home town. You can find Bree in the studio leading a fun, upbeat flow!

JerriLu Atkins

JerriLu discovered her passion for yoga when she moved to Boulder in 1998. While there she practiced yoga in a variety of disciplines including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara, Bikram, and Power Vinyasa. She completed a 200 hour teacher training at Core Power Yoga in 2011. After moving to Vail in 2012 JerriLu joined the RPY community and in 2015 completed Advanced Art of Assisting and the 200 hour Baptiste Teacher Training.  As a family practice physician JerriLu is constantly intrigued by the interrelationship of mind, body, and spirit, as they relate to health, wellness and disease. She is fascinated and in awe at the infinite power of the yoga practice to impact these axes in positive ways. She loves putting her personal yoga knowledge and experience to work in her medical practice by empowering patients to take ownership of their health, and by guiding them with compassion through illness or injury.  When she’s not on her mat or at work JerriLu likes to be outside running, hiking, biking or skiing with her husband Dale. They have two beautiful grown kids who she hopes you get to meet some day!
