Loveland Community Yoga, also known as LC Yoga, based in Loveland, Colorado, was born with the intention to mindfully create community. Eric Holsapple, owner of LC Yoga, began practicing yoga 25 years ago.
“The dream of opening a studio was born on many drives back and forth to other Northern Colorado communities to practice yoga,” he shares.
Eric envisioned bringing a yoga studio into Loveland where he is based. He and his management team saw the need for a yoga studio which would embrace all traditions and paths of yoga.
“Our goal is to make yoga accessible to all so that everyone can experience the powerful effects this practice has on our mind, body, and heart,” says Andrea Crowl, LC Yoga’s Manager.
LC Yoga welcomes all students of yoga and provides a variety of styles like Hatha, Vinyasa, Heated Yoga, Kundalini, Aerial, Beginners, Restorative, Yin, Yoga with Weights, Yoga Wall, Meditation, Pilates, ViniYoga, Yoga for Recovery and Yoga Therapy.
The aesthetics of the studio are beautiful. A large Labyrinth covers the floor in the non-heated studio which was painted by the owner Eric and his wife on their 25th wedding anniversary.
“The beautifully curated space speaks to the level of care we have for the students we serve; we want the best for our community,” says Melissa Morris, business managerfor LC Yoga.
We want the best for our community.
The studio provides two yoga rooms, heated and non-heated, a private room for Yoga Therapy, Massage, Private Yoga and Sound Healing. A wide variety of workshops are offered, as well as teacher trainings, retreats, monthly events like sound baths and summer yoga in the park, along with specialty classes. The studio’s family of teachers has come from diverse yoga lineages, which provide students the guidance and opportunity to grow. Loveland Community Yoga has built a strong community within this short time span of opening and is excited to have celebrated their one year anniversary!
