11-11-11 transformational yoga event in Minturn

Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado

MINTURN: Yoga teachers from Vail to Eagle are gathering together in Minturn Friday to host the local chapter of a global celebration of community. The event falls on the auspicious date 11-11-11 and will be held at the new Open Space, and will entail a full day of yoga, meditation and community.

Local kundalini yoga teacher Onkar Kaur first envisioned an 11-11-11 event last year and decided to start by bringing as many people together as possible.

“This event was created to really bring a sense of community through all modalities,” she said. “We have a lot of yoga and inspiration in the valley, but it’s so spread out. I began to imagine the possibilities of having all of these amazing teachers, healers and students together in one place at one time, and when all was said and done, we had an entire day planned.”

The event kicks off officially at 7 a.m. and runs until 10 p.m., but if 15 hours of yoga sounds daunting, most of the practices actually involve meditation, relaxation, a gong bath and all are accessible to all levels of experience. A snack will be provided during the morning and evening break, and a sit down meal will be provided at the midday break.
