3Gems Yoga offers private, goal-based yoga training that directly addresses your individual needs and goals at your home, your office, or at my private studio 10 minutes from the Cherry Creek Mall. The most authentic Yoga is taught one-to-one or in small groups because every individual has a unique physical and mental/emotional makeup and thus would benefit from a unique set or style of yoga techniques that grow and change along with the individuals evolving needs. The more students in a class and the less aware the teacher, the less effective the instruction. There is certainly a place for large group StudioYoga classes, but unless complemented by individualized training, time spent there will probably not get you much more than physical conditioning.

As youth’s vitality begins to diminish, exercise to replenish it is more essential than ever. There are no ailments of old age that cannot be avoided by proper exercise and eating habits. Because Happy Vyayama focuses on functional mobility and rythmic breathing, it is one of the best ways to remain vibrantly alive. Get Course Details →

What 3Gems Yoga Clients Are Saying . . .
Michael: Pianist and Musical Director, age 39
Bradd introduced me to an old tradition of yoga from outside the Krishnamacharya lineage with compassion and charm. The blend of centered movement and energetic practices as well as novel poses and breath work are incredibly centering, uplifting and a practice suitable for many levels of ability. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Adam: Professional Gamer, age 19
Bradd has been my teacher for 5 months and I have grown enormously with his guidance. We meet twice a week in my home for 90 minute sessions. As a teacher, he is skillful, patient and provides me the right amount of encouragement. I have become more balanced, calmer, and ready to work using skills I have learned that help me control my body, emotions, and energy level. I would certainly say that Bradd is top-notch. Thank you, Bradd, for helping me toward gaining masterful control of my life.
Mike: Lawyer, age 50
Over the past 6 months of yoga sessions with Bradd, I have increased my flexibility, strength and concentration; I have also lost weight and generally feel healthier. Bradd varies the activities, so no two sessions are alike and every session is interesting. Not only does he vary the practice for long range goals, he also takes into account the events of a particular day and varies the routine to address stress or physical ailments. I wholeheartedly recommend Bradd Graves and 3Gems Yoga.
Holly, NIA Instructor: age 60ish
Bradd is my favorite yoga teacher ever!! His gentle guidance, attention to detail, and beautiful voice spoke to my body, mind and spirit. I learned to focus, release and relax. My body was more agile, flexible, stable and strong after sessions with Bradd. I was so sorry he moved from Tucson to Colorado. He rocks!!
Emily: Real Estate Agent, age 58
My husband, my son, and myself are all working with Bradd and experiencing significant health (body) and mood (mind) benefits. Bradd started working with our son, who had an aversion to physical activity of any kind. After working 1 on 1 with Bradd for 5 months he has developed a strong body-mind discipline that he uses to keep himself more focused and energized for his work and studies. Our son’s success inspired my husband and I to start taking privates with Bradd 3 months ago. We love the classes and doing yoga together and we love the results even more; we are more focused, relaxed, energized, stronger, and flexible. And as very busy professionals we find that having the yoga in our home ensures we show up for class even when we may not feel like it. Always on time, Bradd is an experienced, kind and thoughtful professional. At the end of a session, we always feel better in mind, body and spirit, no matter how frazzled or fried we felt at the start. And the Ayurvedic herbs and lifestyle adjustments he recommends to support the yoga have also been very helpful. I can’t say enough good things about the experience of having Bradd and Yoga in our lives.
