Trista Winder

Massage Therapist & Yoga Instructor

My love for wellness has led me on rich and diverse path. I am an E-RYT Certified Yoga Teacher, 500-hour Dana Baptiste Flow Certified, Anusara 200-hour Teacher Training & Immersion graduate of Tiffany Wood, and I completed an 80-hour intensive Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with Alicia Poldino. I have a degree in Massage Therapy with an apprenticeship in Deep Tissues Massage and completed a 1 year intensive Self-Awareness Coaching Program with Rise Leadership.


My training has proven to me that aligning the body through movement and bodywork, sets me up for optimal performance as a competitive mountain bike racer!

Dawn Young

Yoga & Ayurveda Instructor

I am a senior practitioner at Rocksteady offering regular yoga classes, individually tailored private sessions, and Ayurveda workshops. We are all individual in our learning styles so having multiple ways to soak in the practices of yoga, meditation, breath work and Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga) is so very beneficial.


I have been teaching yoga for 10 years and practicing for 20. As a student of Anusara Yoga, Ayurveda, and the beautiful Sankhya and Tantric philosophies, I teach an alignment based, lifestyle enhancing, and philosophy rich practice. My belief is that by being an attentive student in your body and mind that you can make the most balanced and healthy choices that will serve you on your journey 


As a rock climber of 20+ years, I know first-hand that it is crucial to take care of myself in intelligent and thoughtful ways. It is the only way to make it through the challenges that come up, whether physical, mental or emotional. Yoga, meditation, breath work and Ayurveda have been my personal wellness package. 

Sloane Pitman

Yoga & Workshop Instructor

As most know, I am an energetic instructor teaching classes, series, and workshops at Rocksteady. Over the years, I have studied and taught Pilates, TRX, group fitness, and myofascial release. Through this process, I have developed a passion for the biomechanics of healing. My study and practice has shown me time and time again that movement and adaptability are huge components to healing and preventing modern illness and injury. I am committed to using my classes as a pathway to help students tap into their natural mobility and vitality and athleticism; at the same time help open their minds to more free and easeful ways of moving through life. I teach many levels of yoga and myofascial release here at Rocksteady to assist anyone in moving their body more sustainably


As a former Division 1 swimmer, yoga introduced me to the idea of balancing brain and body. Over the last 10 years, yoga has remained a way for me to put my body back together after long bouts of training for trail & road marathons and long missions in the Wasatch range. I can help you do the same.
