VAIL — This offseason, the Vail Vitality Center invites you to take your yoga practice to higher ground with the Flow and Fly vinyasa yoga workshop on Saturday. The workshop is a combination of flowing postures and inversions, including arm balances, forearm balances and handstands, said Karen Anderson, Vail Vitality Center yoga director.

"It's so fun to have the opportunity to practice these more intermediate poses in the context of a full-spectrum class," she said. "There isn't time for this in a regular one-hour class."

Along with building arm strength, arm-balancing poses can strengthen the core, as well as sharpen mental focus. This is an intermediate- to advanced-level class that will challenge you physically. It will be led by Tara Goike, who has taught yoga in the Vail Valley since 2003 and has more than 500 hours of yoga teacher training.

"Tara is a very skilled teacher and a very strong practitioner," Anderson said. "She has an easy way about teaching, so that you find yourself just flowing into whatever is happening."

The class will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday,. The cost for the workshop is $10 for members and $20 for nonmembers. Call 970-476-7960 to learn more about the workshop or to reserve a spot.
