JerriLu Atkins

JerriLu began practicing yoga in 2000 as a way to address sore muscles that stemmed from years of running, cycling and skiing.

Yoga has given JerriLu access to countless tools to enhance her medical practice as well as her personal sense of well being and she is passionate about sharing the practice with her students as well as her patients.

Living in Boulder, Colorado for fifteen years gave JerriLu the opportunity to practice with many different teachers and a variety of different styles of yoga. Ultimately Power Vinyasa Flow became her favorite, and she especially likes classes that are set to music. In 2011 JerriLu completed her first 200 hour teacher training at Core Power Yoga in Boulder. After moving to the Vail Valley in 2012 JerriLu quickly found her “tribe” at Revolution Power Yoga.
