Beth Kearns, Acupuncturist
I’m a lifelong learner and adventurer, and I’m passionate about helping others to heal and feel their best. Since 2000, I’ve been fortunate enough to accompany my clients on their journey to wellness which includes improved relationships with friends and family, getting back to hiking and skiing, and being free of pain!
Inspired and influenced by nature and Eastern medicine, I completed the four-year program at the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture (ITEA), where I was trained in the Classical Five-Element Acupuncture school. I’ve been on the faculty at ITEA since 2011 and teach point location and theory.
One of the cornerstones of my practice is trust. Our sessions can be extremely enlightening, and you may discover areas of your life that are not making you happy, whether it be an unfulfilling career, an unhealthy relationship, or constant chronic pain, either physical or emotional.
A tenet of Five Element Acupuncture training combines the energy of the body, mind, and spirit. In doing so, I am able to work with my patients to treat not just the symptoms but join them as we, together, discover the root causes of pain, discomfort, and lack of fulfillment.
I’m grateful to be pursuing my passion and witnessing my clients as their lives transform, their pain disappears, and a sense of ease returns to their mind and body. Because of this and my love for learning, I continue to take more than the required continuing education and advanced trainings.
I’m a certified Diplomat (Dipl.Ac) by the National Certification Commission in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I’m fully licensed in the state of Colorado.I’ve trained with the founder of NST and received my advanced certification.
Michel Barta, M.Ed
Reiki Master Teacher
Peace Bridge Reiki
Michel first became introduced to Reiki over 25 years ago when she worked with a psychotherapist who recommended she try Reiki as a complement to their work together. Since then, integrating traditional and holistic methods has been her cornerstone for experiencing well-being and personal growth.
Naturally curious about organizations, people and cultures, she has served professionally in corporate and private business, education and social services. She received her Masters in Education Administration at Arizona State University, and has obtained several business and educational certificates.
With Reiki, Michel has helped people experience ease, inner peace and healing during times of personal and professional transition. Stress in our bodies, mind and spirit often accompanies transition. Michel sees herself as a companion with clients as they recognize shift occurring and the wisdom of their inner guidance as a result of the Reiki. She is well-regarded for creating a safe gentle space of non-judgment and meaningful connection.
Michel is a Master Teacher of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. She is the founder of Peace Bridge Reiki, and is a member of the Reiki Healing Association.

Kate has walked a complex life of different layers of healing she has had to embrace. On this walk, she has met many teachers who've reminded her to stay true to her healing path.
Over the last twenty five years, Kate has practiced many styles of yoga as a vehicle to support her healing and evolution. Kate’s great love of yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life and spirit, and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. She completed Hot Yoga Teacher Training in December 2008. Kate went on to train with Ana Forrest in October of 2009, which was one of the most pivotal experiences of her life. Ana Forrest reminded Kate of the healer she was meant to be by providing a space for her to take a deep and honest look at the protective barriers holding her back in life.
In her 30s, Kate faced a crossroads where she knew she had to break out of how she was walking in her life and choose a new way of being which allowed her to be free in her life, in a fuller, more authentic way. During this experience she met her spiritual teacher, Trudy Welty. Trudy is known as a wisdom holder of working with nature in a sacred way. Trudy taught Kate methods of living as a sensitive being in this world by building a bridge working with Mother Nature and the human experience in a cohesive internal balance. She continues in her studies with Miss Trudy.
As Kate continued teaching and evolving in her healing ways, how she taught yoga shifted, and through her healing evolution, Kate was guided and then inspired to create a yoga style that worked with the elements of nature. Kate began creating a style with the support of Kelly Kessen, a teacher of Five Elements Acupuncture, and Earth Ways Yoga began. Kate invited Trudy Welty, a well-trained naturalist, to add even more depth of relationship between the natural world and humans' evolution toward walking in balance on this earth in honoring all the relations. Earth Ways Yoga builds the bridge between Mother Nature and the human experience through yoga, meditation and ritual. Kate and Trudy are honored to be able to stand together to offer these trainings to others who are ready to stand in an authentic way as a teacher in this world.
Kate's teaching will help unlock barriers that have held you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is honored to be able to bring her great passion for the art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios where she teaches, including Yoga Pod and Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder Colorado, Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver, and guest teaches at Ra Yoga in Southern California. Kate also facilitates healing circles in her community which incorporate the Seven Directions, the 5 Elements and relationship building with the Natural World.
Kate has a flourishing private practice in Boulder, Colorado. These sessions incorporate guidance through deeply intuitive energy work and breath work to live in a better way with mind, body and essence as a sensitive being in this world. Kate provides a sacred space and tools to help her clients facilitate their own healing processes.
