supporting local

The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health. “Choices” being the optimal word, especially when what we consume is involved. Living and working in Colorado is a choice made by many who want to live a clean, healthy lifestyle. Most of us move here for the amount of sunny days, mountains, outdoor activities, less humidity, and its world-renowned culinary and beverage options. “Ethical” restaurants are also high on the list. Restaurants that source their ingredients from local farms and gardens can take advantage of the surplus of fresh flavors that these ingredients offer—not to mention the improved nutrition, economy benefits, and ethically responsible mandate that many of us support today. Farm-to-table food is healthier than processed…

creative collab

When two life-long friends with a passion for health and happiness join forces—magic happens. The River Yoga’s owner Danielle Barbeau has once again teamed up with local interior designer Jamie Nusser of J Designs (pictured) to design The River Sunnyside, their third location together after their successful launch of The River Five Points. This time, the mind-body duo wanted to create a cutting-edge studio that not only caters to its yoga clientele, but one that offers a distinct place to reflect, relax, and connect. “The studio is very intentional,” says Barbeau. “We want people to come in and wonder where they are; Am I in a boutique?

farming from the ground up

After thirteen years of Air Force Reserves and presidency of GS1, Veteran of Desert Storm Sally Herbert changed her life’s course to the joys of growing local produce, but with a twist.

However, we can’t forget the importance of environment. When you go somewhere that’s serene and beautiful—and welcomes you with open arms—you can’t help but feel calm and stressfree, which aids in your overall wellness. The River Sunnyside’s owner Danielle Barbeau says escaping the daily grind allows you to better focus on centering your mind and body. She knew this sentiment would be pertinent when creating her new yoga space, so she decided to enlist close friend and yoga aficionado, Jamie Nusser of J Designs to help. THE LOOK AND FEEL Bringing the outdoors in was a big part of the design. “Everything was done with intention. We wanted to…
