New yoga director at Vail Cascade Club
VAIL – Local athlete and dedicated yogi Charry Morris is the new director of yoga programming at the Vail Cascade’s Aria Spa & Club. Morris discovered her love of yoga at Aria Spa & Club upon arriving in Vail in 1998. She has been teaching at the club intermittently for several years and has a dedicated following.Morris enjoyed a collegiate and professional soccer career from 1988 to 2002. She traveled from Colorado to Japan to Georgia, but found her true home in Vail in the midst of her athletic pursuits. During that time, she discovered a passion for yoga as a cross-training option helping to keep her healthy and centered. She began taking classes with Argie Ligeros Tang of Yoga for Athletes at the Cascade and, as her interest grew, her practice soon became teacher training-focused.Morris brings to Aria Spa & Club a decade of teaching experience, 15 years of personal practice and consistent, continuing education in the art of teaching yoga. She also brings an enthusiasm for growing the local yoga community through gentle beginner programs and focused healing options, such as holistic and wheelchair-bound opportunities.”I want to get people hooked on yoga and grow the community from the ground up,” Morris said. “I hope to introduce … yoga to those who haven’t considered it an option: absolute beginners; the disabled; those with medical issues looking for alternative opportunities.”She also hopes people will come to discover the Vail Cascade as a yoga destination.”I’d love to introduce more wellness and holistic options, to broaden the scope of the practice, and to bring in different teachers who offer another view or a unique approach to yoga,” Morris said.While she has practiced a broad range of yoga disciplines and methods, Morris says her style is not dogmatic. She enjoys drawing from the different options to create an open, personal learning opportunity.”Yoga is about not having labels,” she said. “I want students to make the experience their own based upon their own bodies and their own needs. Each individual’s practice should be personal.”Morris begins her new position at Aria Spa & Club immediately.For more information about Vail Cascade or Aria Spa & Club, visit http://www.vailcascade.com or call 800-420-2424.
