Meet Ali Bullano of Zenver Yoga in The Highlands

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ali Bullano.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Ali. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Zen Buddhism was the only class I ever received an A+ in during my undergraduate college years, which was quite the foreshadow. After graduating with a degree in psychology in 2010, I traveled the country seeking purpose. What I found was a deep desire to immerse myself in yoga, meditation, and spirituality.

During the winter of 2012, I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training and I haven’t looked back since. I went on to teach at a studio in Richmond, Virginia, Hot House Yoga, for a few years and began hosting yoga with live music pop-ups, coined Groovinyasa, all over the country. I completed my 500-hour teacher training in 2014 and moved to Denver the same year. After just a few months living in Denver, I stumbled across an opportunity to help open up a small yoga studio in the Highlands. It was exactly what my entrepreneurial heart desired.

Soon enough, the [then] owner asked if I would be interested in taking it over. I didn’t think twice about accepting her offer and Zenver was born shortly after. Zenver is an intimate, welcoming, and tranquil space to practice yoga, meditation, and spirituality. We offer a variety of workshops, retreats, and teacher training designed to ignite your practice and inspire your life.

Has it been a smooth road?
An entrepreneur will tell you the road is never smooth. There have been many ups and downs along the way but I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world. Things get hard, you learn from them, and you move on. There will always be struggles, but there cannot be beauty without pain, right? You just have to keep moving forward and trust the process.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Zenver is an intimate, inclusive, and tranquil space to practice yoga, meditation, and spirituality. We offer a variety of workshops, retreats, and teacher training designed to ignite your practice and inspire your life. The yoga we offer at Zenver is unique because we start each class with a guided, seated meditation and we end each class with at least 5-10 minutes of a candlelit savasana set to ambient, relaxing music. We offer more than just the physical aspects of yoga and encourage going inward to experience the peace and stillness that is always within you.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, Denver is a great city for businesses like Zenver. It has been said that an estimated 80% of doctor’s visits are due to stress. By offering a place to find peace in the city, we are offering a way out of the stress-driven culture we are accustomed to. Yoga, meditation, and spirituality are tools that anyone can use to tune into themselves, increase mindfulness, and ultimately lead a healthier, happier life. I would definitely recommend people starting out their yoga or meditation journey with us. Most of our classes are all levels and we offer a trauma-informed, inclusive approach to yoga where anyone will feel welcome. You’ll feel right at home the moment you walk in the door.
