‘Flow’ into winter with Vail yoga workshop
VAIL – The Yoga Studio at The Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa is offering two yoga transition workshops designed to enhance winter conditioning by preparing the body for the coming season. The workshops are designed to compliment one another and students may engage in both for a deeper experience. The sessions include Solar Hot Flow and Lunar Candlelight Flow and both take place Sunday.Solar Hot Flow is a rhythmic flowing series of athletic poses set to fun, motivating music that inspire a natural heat throughout the body. The practice is designed to keep participants in a warm and fluid place within the body as winter sets in. It also is a unique way to approach winter conditioning and offers a great compliment to The Vitality Center’s Winter Conditioning series, which continues in November and December. The Solar Hot Flow class is 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.The Lunar Candlelight Flow practice keeps the moving flow lower to the ground, inviting deeper stretches and longer holds to tone the body and soothe the mind. Afterward, participants will participate in 45 minutes of restorative poses and meditation set to candlelight and relaxing music. This setting and series invites participants to comfortably explore the healing effects of retreat that are inherent in winter. Lunar Candlelight Flow is 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.Cost for each session is $25 or participants may enjoy both sessions for $45. This rate applies to members and non-members. Both the Solar Hot Flow and the Lunar Candlelight Flow are led by Tara Goike, who has been teaching yoga in the Vail Valley for seven years and has received more than 200 hours of yoga training through the Vinyasa flow style.
