Rachael Butts


As a high school athlete, Rachael first found yoga to relieve pain from volleyball injuries. Her yoga journey began, in earnest, in Atlanta and after several years of practicing and experiencing the physical and mental benefits of yoga, she began her pursuit of becoming a yoga teacher.

After moving to Colorado, Rachael completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in the Fall of 2013. In 2016 Rachael decided to take her professional yoga journey further and co-founded Meraki Yoga Studio in Fort Collins, Colorado. With 5 years of experience she continues to embrace the challenges of owning and managing a small business while teaching classes and events throughout the week.

Rachael’s continued desire to elevate her teaching led her to complete her 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training. In the Spring of 2018 she completed her training with Gina Caputo and Tracey Garcia of the Colorado School of Yoga in Integrated Vinyasa™. In her classes, Rachael strives to create a space that is approachable and energetically rich while carefully curating classes to support growth through integration and awareness.

When Rachael is not teaching yoga, you can find her appreciating colorful Colorado, enjoying live music and spending time her husband, Jordan and their 2 English Cocker Spaniels.

Adrienne Hoxmeier


Adrienne is a Fort Collins native and formally trained dancer, known for her supportive, creative, and intentional style of teaching. She graduated from Colorado State University in 2012 with a degree in Apparel Design and Production before completing her first 200-Hour Teacher Training at CorePower Yoga the following year. This first training sparked a love for teaching and serving others that has reshaped her journey and career in many ways.

Before opening Meraki Yoga in 2016, Adrienne spent several years teaching in the Fort Collins community while continuing her education with additional trainings and workshops. Since then, she has completed her 300-Hour Teacher Training with the Colorado School of Yoga where she studied under the guidance and mentorship of Gina Caputo and Tracey Garcia. Through her most recent studies, she has gained greater insight into how this transformative practice impacts both the body and the mind and how we can better use both for a sustainable, life long practice on and off the mat.

With almost 5 years of experience in her field and over 10 years in leadership and management, Adrienne has served as a contributor to Mindful Studio Magazine and a mentor for new teachers and young women entrepreneurs.

You can expect a class that is challenging, thoughtful, and engaging that develops your own inner teacher through heightened awareness, curiosity, and exploration.

Off the mat and outside the studio, you will find Adrienne involved in a long list of creative projects, cooking, tending her garden, or spending time outside with her animals and husband, Charlie.
