Young Warriors at The River


Dear Young Warriors Friend and Families,
It is my privilege and honor to share with you the Young Warriors has been acquired by The River Power Vinyasa in Denver, CO. This is an exciting transition for Young Warriors. Your support over the last six+ years has meant the world to us.  Each bit of growth we made was because of your commitment to wellness as a family priority.
The River Power Vinyasa Yoga Studio has family and children’s yoga as a part of their mission.  They provide space and classes for families to make health the same priority as Young Warriors always has.  And of course, Young Warriors has been renting space in The River for over a year now, and it is already our yoga hOMe. Beginning October 1, 2014, Young Warriors will dissolve as an LLC. The classes that Young Warriors offers will now be part of The River programming. All of our drop in classes at 1212 Delaware will remain on the schedule.  Many of our school groups will continue as they have in the past. The biggest change is that beginning TODAY (September 2, 2014) you will now view our kids class schedule, register for programs and submit payment via the River’s scheduling page.
“What about my existing class package?”We will be honoring ALL existing Young Warrior packages through December 31, 2014.  After this point, we all packages will be expired and new ones could be purchased through The River website or at the studio.
“How can I stay connected and involved?

  • Come in to use your existing packages before December 31, 2014. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays we have a 5:30p class parallel to our evening adult classes.  Saturdays and Sundays at 10a we also have side by side classes for the entire family.
  • The River Power Vinyasa Yoga Studio will still host Kid Yoga Teacher Trainings as a part of their trainings each year. Our next training will take place September 13-14.
“What will change?”

  • In mid-September, we will discontinue our scheduling software and make changes to our website that direct you to The River’s sites for all kid yoga programing information and registration.
  • Christen Bakken will step down as owner of Young Warriors, and instead take on a supportive role as Programming Manager at The River. The other existing staff members will continue to teach their existing classes.
  • We have put many of our special Young Warrior programs on pause for the fall. The River wants to see and hear from YOU what programs you would like to see continued.  If you want to see camps, kids night out, adaptive yoga for children, or any of our other awesome programs, you simply have to ask and we will look to make those additions early in 2015, provided there is enough interest. Send your feedback to
In conclusion, the mission of Young Warriors still rings true.  We are trying on a new approach to offering yoga, and by no means are we backing down from the power that children’s yoga holds in our hearts and minds.  We are excited to share Young Warriors with you though the programming of The River and truly thank you for all you have done to support us in the past and all that you will do to support us in the future.
Love & Light,
Christen Bakken
