Meet Christopher Maestas!

“I was born and raised in small town Wyoming. I moved to Fort Collins in 2016 which is where I discovered and fell in love with my practice. I completed my 200hr TT in 2018 at the Yoga Pod Fort Collins studio and have been teaching ever there since. I am also certified in podHot, yin, and podFit. I just recently moved to Denver and as sad as it was to leave my home studio, I am very excited to still be a part of the Yoga Pod family and become a part of your community.”

What you can expect from his class:
“I always want my students to feel like they’ve been to outer space and back haha! My students can expect to be challenged, yet find ease in their practice as well. Students can also expect the most delicious, restful svasana they’ve ever had ;)”

Virtual Studio


Yoga Pod Denver West

At yoga pod Denver West, we provide a welcoming, all-encompassing environment for yoga practitioners of all types. With more than 60 classes to choose from each and every week, you’ll find a time that works for you to fit in your practice.

podFLOW 1

Ideal for: All Yogis

The podFLOW 1 practice is designed to bring the true spirit of vinyasa yoga, including proper alignment and safety, to the forefront. This class is designed to synchronize your breath with your movements while also utilizing progressive sequences to build strength and improve flexibility. podFLOW 1 classes are physically challenging, yet suitable for all levels, and are performed in a room set to 80 degrees with no humidity.

podFLOW 2

Ideal for: Intermediate and Advanced Yogis

With podFLOW 2, you’ll see just what we mean by breath, strength, and sweat. Set to music with dynamic and more challenging posture sequences, this class is only for those who have achieved perfection in podFLOW 1 and are looking for an added inspiration. Each teacher brings their own unique element to podFLOW 2. Also available as a podFLOW 2 Heated class


Ideal for: All Yogis
If you want an intense workout, podBARRE is the yoga class type for you. During podBARRE classes, we focus on sculpting, lengthening, and creating lean muscle groups, especially focusing on the core, arms, and thighs. Try out this high-energy and powerful workout today to build strength for your yoga practice.

Tip for podBARRE: Keep an open mind during this class, as it definitely isn’t your traditional vinyasa flow yoga class. Be prepared to sweat, work out, and wake up sore the next day. A mat is needed for this class; they are available to rent for just $2 for non-members and $1 for members.


Ideal for: All Yogis

The benefits of hot yoga include detoxification and a rewarding, strength-building sweat. podHOT classes are practiced in a room set to 105 degrees with 60 percent humidity in order to build strength, create balance, improve flexibility, and promote a detoxifying sweat. With breathing exercises, standing series, and floor series, this 60-75 minute class is suitable for all levels. Remember to hydrate, bring a towel, and water.


Ideal for: All Fitness Gurus

With physical fitness being part of our core principles, our Denver West yoga studio finds that podFIT aligns perfectly with our mission. Starting with a full body warm-up, students will progress through a full body workout designed to improve strength throughout their core and all major muscle groups. Students can expect a challenge with resistance training, bodyweight and cardio exercises, and more — all with a high-energy music soundtrack.

Ideal for: All Yogis

By applying moderate stress to the body’s connective tissues for two to five minutes at a time, along with support from props and blankets, YIN yoga classes are designed to increase joint mobility and overall flexibility. Yogis of all levels will enjoy YIN in a dimly lit room with soft music throughout each class.

Sweat. Heat. Beatz.

Ideal for: All Yogis

Do you have the flow, love music, and love to have fun? We love the flow, the music, and the fun in yoga, it’s what makes the movements come alive. One way we encourage students to feel the flow is through Sweat. Heat. Beatz. It’s a class that focuses more on flowing through the poses yet to decidedly “unyogic” music. Other classes help perfect alignment, but Sweat. Heat. Beatz. brings together all levels in a room where people can move to their own beat. We pump the heat and the music, take it back a notch on the cues and the verbiage, and let students zone in on their own meditative flow through the class.


Ideal for: Intermediate and Advanced Yogis

Level 3 classes are for those looking to take their yoga practice further with a demanding practice that includes advanced postures, detailed alignment principles and yoga philosophy. Expect firm, direct instruction as you move through breath synchronized movements. This class will start off slow before moving into a more intentional and individual experience.You must be comfortable with the use of props as well as hands-on adjustments. And last, but not least, you must bring an attitude of curiosity and compassion. The class is gently heated to 90 degrees with no added humidity.
