A Woman in Harmony with her Spirit is like a river flowing.
She goes where she will without pretense...
and arrives at her Destination,
prepared to be Herself and only Herself.
At Sisterhood Yoga, our mission is to offer specialized yoga, dance and fitness classes that focus on strengthening and empowering the body and mind. These classes are not strictly for women; however, most of the classes currently taught are women-specific. We want to support and build up our sisters - be they students, family, life-long friends and/or new acquaintances. At Sisterhood Yoga, the focus is on providing women, adolescent to mature, with strength, recovery and fearless empowerment!
Who We Are
Kandee Khodl, RYT
Kandee has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than 10 years. Her education includes an M.A. in Physical Education and Yoga Training including: RYT 200, Prenatal, Pre/Post Mommy & Me, and Tots Yoga. In her former life (pre-littles), she started her own high school yoga and dance programs as well as coached state-championship cross country teams. Since then, she’s welcomed three beautiful littles into her life and spends her time following, laughing and learning with them every day. As a student and teacher she has sought out more and more opportunities and experiences to learn and grow.
Her passions have changed with the birth of each precious family addition. From vinyasa flow to a more mother-centered prenatal and postnatal practice, she reaches out to all women. She has since expanded her teaching into Babywearing Dance classes, creating a safe, sacred and fun dance experience for you and your baby.
In her everyday search to find, create and share a "Village" community for all women, she started Sisterhood Yoga. It is here that she hopes to give all "sisters" an opportunity to share, support, learn, love and empower each other.
Lead Tots Yoga Instructor
My name is Anna Jantsch-Doerr and I have the privilege of being a tots yoga teacher. I came to yoga when I moved from my childhood home and into Colorado Springs on my own. Yoga helped me find community and showed me how wonderful it was to move and stretch. Along with yoga my favorite pastimes are cuddling with my dog, baking and knitting.
I love working with kids I think they hold so much for me to learn from and grow from. I love the stories they share and the joy they bring. I have been coaching gymnastics to kids all of all ages for the past 6 years. Toddlers are one of my favorite age groups to work with since they soak up everything like a sponge. I love their willingness to learn.
Tots yoga is the perfect combination of fun and movement that is the most fun I have ever had working. We sings songs, play games, run, roll, and preform yoga at its best.
Franziska "Fran" Beeman
Assistant Tots Yoga Teacher
My name is Franziska Beeman but I go by Fran. I am 34 years old and live on Fort Carson with my husband Bud. I am from Germany and moved to the U.S. in 2007. In Germany I was a Kindergarten Teacher for children ages 3 months to 6 years. I finished my studies in early childhood development and social assistance and taught at various German Kindergartens from 2005 to 2007. I have gone back to work in Germany a couple times when Bud was deployed.
Some of the additional training I have includes child first aid and CPR, Montessori training from ages birth to three years, instructional Montessori art class for children, a weekend course for instructing Himalayan singing bowl (musical development for children), and annual hygiene and food handling courses.
I am very passionate about childhood development and am always looking for new and fun ways to expand my skillset. I also consider myself an animal lover. I have volunteered at animal rescue facilities because caring for animals is something I truly love to do. I have a dog named Sadie and a cat named Lilly that were both rescues. Some of my other hobbies include yoga, reading, and hiking with Bud. We are expecting our first child in May and can’t wait for her to arrive.
We are very fortunate to have a bunch of amazing teachers helping to cover classes. Get to know these wonderful mamas by signing up for our classes.
