VAIL — In honor of 2016, the Vail Vitality Center is hosting New Year’s Evolution, 30 days of yoga, meditation, ayurveda and journaling to ignite your passion and purpose.
“Whether it’s your health, career, relationships or passions, we’ve all felt the pull to make changes in our lives during big milestones like the new year,” said Julia Clarke, the Vail Vitality Center’s yoga studio director. “Too often, though, our motivations dwindle with the busy tides of life, and before long, your good intentions are nothing more than a distant memory.”
Research shows that resolutions are most successful when clearly outlined, undertaken with a group and focused on a specific timeline. Join Clarke, a certified maharishi ayurvedic wellness consultant and Karen Anderson, a certified meditation instructor, for this supportive, guided program designed to rekindle your sense of passion and purpose through four time-tested tools, including:
• Yoga to build fortitude.
• Meditation to clarify your mind.
• Ayurveda to cultivate vitality.
• Guided journaling questions to inspire your journey.
Clarke led a similar 40-day program a few years ago, she said.
“The feedback was fantastic, and many people have asked me to do it again, and now I am,” she said.
GOOD FIT FOR BUSY SCHEDULES
This program is offered entirely online, with full access to yoga classes at the Vail Vitality Center, making it a good fit for even the busiest schedule.
“What sets this apart from previous programs is that rather than having a weekly meeting, it is all online,” Clarke said. “(Sometimes,) people don’t sign up for the longer programs because they can’t make the weekly meeting, so we’re hoping this makes it more accessible.”
Social media and in-studio classes will keep the community vibe and group support firmly intact, Clarke said. Attendees will receive meditations via email each day.
“These will follow the new year cycle of releasing old patterns and identifying new goals, etc.,” she said.
Anderson and Clarke have been teaching yoga in Vail for a combined 23 years and are ready to help you break a habit, fulfill a resolution and recharge your life.
