Be Present workshop at Dogma Athletica in Edwards on Saturday
EDWARDS — Yoga instructor Amy Baker will return to Dogma Athletica for a two-hour practice on Saturday. Baker, who now lives in Denver, served as Dogma Athletica’s yoga director for several years, so the studio has a special place in her heart.
“Dogma is my home. It’s where my teaching career began,” Baker said. “The people who belong to Dogma are some of the most amazing people that I know. I can’t wait to see them.”
YOUR BODY’S ‘JUNK DRAWER’
This two-hour practice will break down more challenging postures with plenty of modifications available for participants.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“I like to call hips and hamstrings the ‘junk drawer,’” she said. “It’s where we put our emotions when we don’t know what to do with them.”
Attendees can expect a rigorous practice, focused on opening these areas and staying with the sensations that arise, whatever they may be.
When asked what being present means to her, Baker said “Right now, being present means being OK with everything just as it is — the good, the bad and the very, very ugly. When you begin to open the hips and hamstrings, things definitely come up. I want people to be curious about those things.”
The class is offered to Dogma Athletica members at $25. Pricing for non-members is $35 per person. Space is limited; contact Dogma Athletica’s front desk at 970-688-4433 for more information and to sign up or email Anne@dogma athletica.com.
