VAIL — Former Vail yogi Charry Morris returns to the Vail Vitality Center to lead Love Nuggets, a series of three yoga workshops, on Friday and Saturday.
“We’re excited to host Charry; she was an integral part of the Vail yoga community for so many years and has become an even more inspiring teacher in the years that she has been away,” said Vail Vitality Center Yoga Director Karen Anderson. “It is always a pleasure to have her return to Vail to share where she has been and motivate us all to live our yoga more fully.”
Morris, also known as Charry Shakti Om, will lead a series of three workshops over the course of two days. Each class will include breathing exercises, asana for the body, stretches and a guided relaxation. There will also be time for questions and discussion during the practices, which Morris calls “very relaxed and a fun time of connection and collaboration.”
“People can expect laughter and a joyful experience of the heart,” Morris said. “This workshop is about coming together and creating a potent inner experience. The focus in on love and what that feels like, looks like (and) can be like in real time for them. My hope is that people will learn how to be kinder and more accepting of themselves and others in tough situations.”
Morris is excited to return to the Vail Valley and catch up with old friends, she said.
“I miss the mountains and having Mother Nature as the backdrop for the practice,” she said. “I feel as though the timing is perfect to return and catch up with everyone on the mat. I have been going through a lot on a personal level and the practice has been the guide for that. I am happy to share any/all insights that have come through my personal process with the Vail sangha.”
Morris formerly served as the yoga director at Aria Spa and Club and taught at most of the gyms and studios throughout Eagle County at one point or another. She now runs her own studio, called Plum Yoga, in Dallas, Texas.
“Charry is a beloved teacher because of her incredible warmth and energy,” Anderson said. “She connects with every one of her students and is able to share her wisdom in a way that is meaningful and powerful.”
All levels of yogis are welcome to attend. To sign up for one or all three workshops, visit http://www.vailvitalitycenter.com or call 970-476-7960.
