Vali Soul Sanctuary was created on a dream... literally.
Sadhna had a dream that he needed to build a temple connected to his home to serve people. "I have no control over inspiration. The cosmos just flowed in. I wanted a safe place for souls to gather." With that, he created the temple space now known as Vali Soul Sanctuary.
The definition of Yoga literally means unity. Unite with yourself!! The studio is a space for music and yoga of many different genres. We host teachers from across the region to serve you. Yoga, Kirtan, meditation, and martial arts, are a few classes we offer. We also host support groups that integrate yoga. Our extracurricular activities comprise of a variety of musicians, fundraisers, dance events and festivities. Vali Soul Sanctuary is about self-healing in all the ways that it can be manifested.

It's a place filled with a network of others walking the same path and expressing their brightness and more! We value community awareness and this is a sacred space to be you.

I am Yuki Tsuji, a licensed Thai Massage therapist / teacher and yoga instructor. I also have a background in acrobatics and am one of the leading AcroYoga teachers globally.
I have been a teacher and a coach in many different disciplines for the last 15 years, including yoga, Thai massage, AcroYoga, handstand / acrobatics, skydiving and body flight. In addition to my therapeutic practice, I instruct Thai massage, yoga and AcroYoga and offer workshops and private coaching both locally and across the United States.
My path to Thai Massage was through my AcroYoga practice in 2008. Prior to that, massage had not been a regular part of my self-care routine and I had no idea of how beneficial it would be to me, or how much I could enjoy giving and receiving Thai Massage. My focus used to be on participating in the activities and pushing my body to the limit, not considering the recovery and self-care. In the end, I ended up with some injuries that are results of neglecting my body’s warnings. After receiving some Thai massage sessions, I knew that I wanted this healing modality to be an essential part of my life to heal myself, and also a way to help other athletes and active people feel better in their body.
Through receiving Thai Massage I not only relieved pain and tightness but also started to feel more balanced in myself and, through giving Thai Massage, I feel a great sense of calm and of being grounded, while also feeling more open physically. I found myself enjoying being more nurturing through giving and I felt ready to explore the softer side of myself.
Thai Massage gives me even deeper connection with people, it involves my movements and breaths synchronizing with theirs, mutually creating a flow and rhythm that we call the “Thai Massage dance”. It brings me a great sense of freedom as well as empathy. I am happy to be able to share the enormous benefits I have experienced with others and to witness the positive effects on my clients.
Outside of Thai Massage and Yoga, since growing up in Japan, being active has always been a huge part of my life. Yoga practice became a major part of my life later, when I moved to the United States for college. I used to be a certified skydiving instructor and have competed in skydiving at both the Collegiate Nationals and Nationals. Since moving to Boulder, Colorado, the mountains have become a major part of my life and climbing, backcountry skiing and trail running have become my major passions outside of my yoga and massage work.
We are hands-on clients most days. Because of this, please allow a little extra time to get back to you! Typically we respond in 24-48 hours and are away from our business email and phone over weekends.
My personal yoga practice was my gateway into the world of bodywork. By way of listening attentively to my breath and working with form through asana practice I was cued into experiencing subtleties about myself that I had never been aware of. My postural, emotional, and mental patterns were exposed and I saw a glimpse of how working with these patterns via the breath could allow me to work towards a more calm and clear state of being. These glimpses intrigued me to dive deeper into the unseen yet felt conditioning that often unconsciously governs our posture, emotions, minds, and breath. Our lives.
In 2007 I began studying at Earthwalk School of Energy in Bellvue, WA and I graduated from their 560 hour Advanced Vibrational Medicine program in June 2009. This was an extensive training on the subtle energy system of the body and various modalities of working with it. Throughout this time period my Ashtanga yoga practice gave me a great template to observe the subtle and gross representations of what I had been studying on a personal level.
In November of 2009 I completed Richard Freeman’s 200 hour Teacher Training Intensive and settled back to my native home of Colorado. In 2012 I graduated from Denver Integrative Massage School with a 600 hour training in Thai and Western massage modalities.
The cumulative and integrated practice that has formed from these experiences is what I invite you to explore with me. I wish to create a space that informs each client or student a little more about themselves to experience a more clear and comfortable way of life. Whether the most helpful platform for you is yoga, massage, or energy work, the viable element is the breath, which is what every treatment or class I offer is built upon.
no expensive drop ins, pay what you can. just come as you are.
Sam and Irene have been dreaming about opening a donation-based studio for the past three years. Finally, all of the pieces came together to allow their dream to become a reality. Sam and Irene found a humble little second-story space, and began turning it into an oasis where all are welcome. Their goal is to create an inclusive environment that is affordable for EVERYONE.
