Meet our Teachers

is a native to Boulder, Colorado, and an established yoga instructor specialized in prenatal and postnatal yoga, mindfulness and biomechanics. Her love for this work shines through her ability to wholeheartedly support each individual's unique process physically, mentally and emotionally. 

 

Kelly came to teach through her personal experience of what science has recently observed with meditation and mindfulness - that we can literally change the neurological configurations of the brain, repattern the nervous system, heal our body and more. Her practice has inspired her teaching over the years primarily through the experience of finding freedom and genuine happiness - she couldn't imagine keeping the path to herself. Her hope is to offer the framework, the practices, and the space to explore the possibilities of new ways of engaging in life that may relieve the unnecessary struggles with what-is in ones own human experience. She believes that it is entirely possible for everyone to find their own unique path to freedom if they so choose. It's not about perfection, it's not about having a silent mind 100% of the time, and it's not about arriving at some enlightened plateau where nothing can touch you. No, it's about transforming hard times and heart ache into gifts designed to motivate growth, insightfulness, and a new degree of unwavering inner strength. It's simple, but not always easy. 

Founder

Kelly Roche Sproul

discovered yoga in 2000 when she took her first astanga-style class, which proved to be both mystifying + challenging, and left her curious to learn more. As a nomad who has lived in 8 different states over the years, she has had the good fortune to gain exposure to many different styles of hatha yoga and has had the privilege of learning from many exceptional teachers along the way. Now as the parent of 2 busy young children, she appreciates both the calming and the playful aspects of the practice in her own life and loves using yoga to gain a different perspective on things when life gets challenging. 

 

Ashley has trained with Anusara teacher Michelle Synnestvedt in Philadelphia, PA, and most recently in the vinyasa flow style with Jacqui Bonwell of the Boston-area Sacred Seeds School of Yoga. In 2012, Ashley received her Children’s/Family Yoga certification through ChildLight Yoga of Dover, NH. She has worked with children and families in daycare settings, schools as well as through the Brookline, MA Department of Recreation. Ashley has taught Family/Toddler + Me classes in Boulder since returning to Colorado in 2014.

Sarah Vogel

RYT & RPYT, fell in love with yoga nearly two decades ago. Her first yoga teacher was a sweet old lady broadcasting gentle hatha classes on Vermont public access television just before dawn. Erin soon moved on to actual classrooms with in-the-flesh teachers, and gravitated toward vinyasa, Anusara, women's yoga, and prenatal yoga. 

 

Erin is a natural teacher, and was a licensed secondary educator before she committed to the yogini path. Her own journey through pregnancy and birth led her to focus her passion on serving women through this monumental transition, both as a prenatal yoga teacher and as a childbirth educator. 

 

Erin is always seeking to grow her capacity for conscious embodied presence, on and off the mat. Her warm, relaxed approach offers students plenty of space and support to dive deeply into their own unique physical and spiritual experience.

Faith Davis

took her first yoga class in 2008.  After feeling the freedom of anxiety lifting and strength building both inside and out, she felt called to certify as a yoga teacher. She graduated from Denver’s Samadhi Center of Yoga in 2009.  A month later she moved to Canada and began teaching various classes including vinyasa, mommy and me and hot yoga.  Pregnant at the time, she quickly found her love for prenatal yoga growing and was mentored by a master teacher and gathered more techniques from a number of other wonderful teachers.  It didn’t take long to learn that she had started on her mama-loving path.  In 2013 she completed her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Yo Mama in Boulder.  She has a deep respect and adoration for mamas and babies - on the inside and out - and enjoys nothing more than leading these women through a class filled with love, laughter, asana and relaxation.

 

Shortly after having her first son, she was called to be a birth doula.  After having her second son, she finally got certified and started serving mamas through this incredible experience.  She is truly honored to do this work and is humbled by each birth.  


Janine has her BS in Early Childhood Education and is working on her Childbirth Educator Certification.  She lives in Longmont with her four amazing boys - one husband and three young sons.  She spends her free time running, baking and attempting to sew.

Jessica Fawcett

is a mama of two and Art Therapist specializing in pregnancy and postpartum, and she is the facilitator of our monthly MaMa Love Village meet up! She moved to Boulder 6 years ago and has never looked back. In 2015, Kelsey graduated from Naropa University with a Masters in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology: Art Therapy. After spending time working with survivors of the sex trafficking industry in Cambodia, Kelsey worked at a middle school in Denver supporting adolescents to find their balance through art-making during that time of transition.

 

Since having kids, her focus has shifted toward supporting women. The huge identity shift that comes with pregnancy and postpartum is amazing and intense. Creating community through art was a huge resource during both of her pregnancies, and she is excited to offer that same resource to the Mama Love community. Kelsey radiates gentleness, exuberance, and warmth. Emphasizing the uniqueness of each mama's experience is important to her, ensuring that everyone will feel heard, connected, and validated through the Mama Love Village.

 

Having two kiddos 18 months apart is a handful, but being a mom is her favorite thing. Art-making of any kind, gardening, baking, and playing outside are also in the list of top favorites. She's excited to become a part of the Mama Love team after taking just about all of the classes they offer throughout her own pregnancy and postpartum experience.

MaMa Love Village Facilitator

Kelsey Fatsi

Her first yoga teacher was her mother. She grew up immersed in yoga, with the understanding that our thoughts are powerful and so is our ability to create healing for ourselves. As a kinesthetic learner, she loves to move and has a deep curiosity about how and why our bodies work and the subtle actions of yoga asana. It was this curiosity that led her to her first teacher training in 2007 at the Shambhava School of Hatha Yoga and has inspired her practice and study over the last 12 years. Yoga has enriched her life in many ways but she took it for granted, as the young and healthy often do, until the birth of her daughter in 2009. Yoga was her lifeline, keeping her grounded and connected as her entire world shifted around her and within her. Jessa's experiences of empowerment and healing during pregnancy, birth and motherhood, inspired her to share the powerful tools yoga provides with other women. She believes that living our most joyful and embodied lives is an inside out process. Yoga invites us to become aware of our unconscious movement and thought patterns that create energetic blocks in our bodies and our lives. This awareness empowers us to be the change we want to create in our lives. We are more powerful than we know! Jessa is passionate about supporting her students on this journey of self discovery. She specializes in Yoga for You private sessions and pre/postnatal yoga.

Jessa's classes are an invitation to slow down, breathe deep and come into alignment, both physically and energetically. When not on her mat you can find her in the kitchen, curled up with a good book or out outside exploring the world with her 7 year old son and 10 year old daughter.
