What is Spirited Vinyasa Yoga?
Spirited Vinyasa Yoga is just our playful way of connecting the “Mind-Body-Spirit” aspect of Yoga to our very own Spirits that are created onsite. At Five Saints Distilling, we believe in creating a casual space for our community to gather, socialize and connect. This same mentality transfers into our Yoga Classes!
An “All-levels” Vinyasa Yoga practice is held every Tuesday and Thursday Night at 7pm in our beautiful newly renovated third floor event space (All ages welcomed!). Our trained Yoga Teachers will guide you through a 60 minute yoga class designed for everyone! Whether you’ve been practicing for years or this is your very first yoga class, you’re in the right place!
After class, continue to unwind on our first floor with one of our hand-crafted spirited cocktails. (21 and over only – no one under 21 is permitted to sit or order at the bar).

Monica’s history as a yoga instructor started to take shape when she was training in Pilates and became an instructor for matwork as well as Full Studio Apparatus (2006 in Albuquerque, NM). In the following years, she went on to train and became certified to teach in the GYROTONIC METHOD (TM) and GYROKINESIS (TM) a spiraling flowing form of yoga practice as well as in the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education (R) (2008-2012 in Santa Fe, NM). Each experience cultivated the joy Monica feels moving with awareness on the mat. She is delighted to bring her yoga practice to Five Saints, and looks forward to the community brought together through these classes. Share the yoga, Share the spirits!
What to Expect in Monica’s class: “In this practice, we move and breathe through various yoga poses, or asanas. Each pose provides a new opportunity to let go of tension, stress, worry, and frustration, making way for strength, peace, joy and love. With each mindful practice, we learn to observe ourselves and to overcome perceived limitations. We share experiences of increased strength and flexibility as well as improvements in our balance, posture, coordination and circulation— and many other benefits to our overall wellness! I provide options and variations to make poses more accessible and also more challenging, allowing your practice to unfold at your own pace.
Jenn began her yoga journey in 2012 after back pain started as a result of having a desk job. Since yoga has helped her in so many ways – not just physically, Jenn enjoys sharing the many benefits with others. Wanting to take her practice to the next level, she completed her 200 hr. Yoga Teacher Training in 2018.
What to Expect in Jenn’s class: “My style of teaching is rooted in Vinyasa. Our typical class begins with about a 5-min meditation to center the mind. A warm up to get the body moving proceeds about three rounds of Sun Salutations. From there we will continue to move the body, paying close attention to the breath. All-levels are welcome! Whether it’s your first class or you’ve lost count, there is something for everyone! And don’t worry! I always make room for yogis to explore and play around. Yoga should be fun! We always end class by cooling down the body before falling into the best pose of class: Savasana.”
