Morgan Ballinger

Owner, Teacher, Student

Baptiste Power Yoga Instructor, 200 RYT

Morgan grew up in Colorado with a love for all things wild, free, and adventurous. She has been active for her entire life, doing gymnastics for 20 years, cheerleading for 18 years, and mountain biking for as long as she can remember. Its no wonder why yoga naturally came into her life 10 years ago.

Morgan loves Baptiste Power Yoga for the space, clarity, and freedom it creates within her body and mind. Her practice is the perfect cherry on top of all her big days on the mountain or low key days at home.


As a certified Baptiste Power Yoga instructor, Morgan's classes bring a special kind of upbeat energy, playfulness, and adventure to them. She aims to show students that anything they want for themselves and their lives is possible!
