“In Denver’s Historic Cultural Five Points district, Ali Duncan wants to break barriers in yoga for people of color. The Fort Collins native moved to Denver and began searching for a yoga studio but had trouble finding one that had people who looked like her.
“I always felt like I stood out. So, Urban Sanctuary literally created itself,” she said.
Duncan said her oldest daughter also inspired her to open her own studio. “She is Black and queer, and if she had a safe space to go to where it was like a healing space, that feels so good.”
She opened Urban Sanctuary in 2016.
To break financial barriers, Duncan offers free classes for BIPOC communities. These classes are intended for specific communities to create a safe space in a supported environment.”
