VAIL, Colorado – The Yoga Studio at the Vail Athletic Club hosts Denver-based certified baptiste power vinyasa yoga teacher Dave Farmar as the guest teacher of its weekly master series class on Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The series is an intermediate-level class where students with a passion and curiosity for yoga have the opportunity to explore their practice on a deeper level, under the guidance of a senior teacher. This practice is open to the community and costs $30.”Dave’s extensive training with Baron Baptiste, combined with his playful style make him ideal for our master series,” says Studio Coordinator Jessa Munion. The baptiste style is the leading philosophy embraced by the studio, which offers over 20 vinyasa classes per week. Munion said participants can expect a rigorous experience. “Both the body and spirit will get a work out,” she said.Farmar left a full-time architectural career in 2005 to pursue yoga; since then, he has led workshops across the world, and his power yoga with Dave Farmar podcast has become one of the top-rated fitness podcasts on iTunes. Farmar is also an avid triathlete and cyclist.”While I know our yoga enthusiasts will be excited about Dave’s class, I also think many local cyclists will be interested to find out how his practice can help them improve their performance,” Munion said.In 2008, Farmar’s Yoga for Cyclists workout was featured in Bicycling magazine.The Yoga Studio at the Vail Athletic Club is located within the Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa, at 352 East Meadow Drive.
