Special to the Vail DailyMountain Lotus yoga studio founder Kelly Heath is leading a free yoga workshop in Vail, Colorado Thursday. Heath recently moved to Calif. and is returning to town for the event.

VAIL, Colorado ” Mountain Lotus, the yoga studio at the Vail Athletic Club in Vail, Colorado welcomes back founder Kelly Heath on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. for a free three-hour yoga intensive in the style of her teacher, Baron Baptiste.

Immediately following the workshop, the studio will host a transition celebration to mark the studio’s name change from Mountain Lotus to The Yoga Studio at the Vail Athletic Club.

“I am excited to come back to the studio and reconnect with the community that is so close to my heart,” Heath said. “Moving to Santa Barbara has been such a blessing, but what I miss most are the Vail yogis.”

Heath started Mountain Lotus in the Vail Gymnastics Center in 2006. The studio partnered with the Vail Athletic Club and moved into the space in 2007. Heath and her husband moved to Santa Barbara in March to pursue other opportunities, and Mountain Lotus will now be called The Yoga Studio at the Vail Athletic Club. The same group of teachers remains under the direction of yogi Jessa Munion and club manager Shannon Smith.

“I have worked closely with the VAC to ensure a smooth transition from Mountain Lotus to The Yoga Studio at the Vail Athletic Club,” Smith said, “and, have come to love and trust those who are still there to maintain the quality of teachers, level of workshops, and overall experience clients receive at the studio.”

The VAC is proud to have inherited the legacy of Mountain Lotus and is doing all it can to continue this journey with similar intention for our clients.”

On Thursday evening the Vail Athletic Club will unveil the new name, in logo form, at the event. The evening will also mark the unveiling of the Vail Athletic Club’s new Web site, where clients will be directed to view the online yoga schedule, a new yoga blog and more.

“Thursday evening will truly mark a celebration as we will have Kelly with us but will also be embarking on something new and exciting within the club,” Smith said. “We hope the community will come out and join us!”
