Braden Wilson calls the mountain town of Steamboat Springs home.  His love for rivers and all things water were cultivated as a child on river trips on the Rio Grande through the Taos Box in northern New Mexico.  Braden went on to become a rafting guide and kayak safety boater working in New Mexico, Colorado and Costa Rica.  Standup paddleboarding has reignited his love for being on the water and he is passionate about sharing this love with others, especially his daughter, Isabel.  When not on local waterways, Braden teaches Spanish at Steamboat Springs Middle School and leads student groups to Central America and the Caribbean to work on community development projects in underserved communities.


  Becca Shaw  became immediately entranced by yoga while traveling abroad in high school in 2009. She finally felt a way to focus her high energy and find a sense of peace! After a year of intensive practice, she wanted to further her education on the subject and went through a 200 hour training at Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja, Mexico.

She loves the philosophy of FUNctional fitness and staying light hearted, while allowing oneself the gift of relaxing not only the body, but the mind as well.
