Special to the DailyYogi Peter Sterios will teach a yoga workshop Friday through Sunday in Vail.

Peter Sterios returns to Aria Spa and Club Friday through Sunday to teach a weekend long yoga workshop for the second time. Sterios brings in a wealth of knowledge and experience in healing athletic injuries through yoga. Sterios was a competitive swimmer and suffered major spinal and shoulder injuries from intense training and competition, which helps him teach to the athletic body. “We are really excited to have Peter come back to us at the Aria Spa and Club,” said Charry Morris, Aria’s yoga director. “He knows how to zero in on low back pain and heal aching joints from overuse injuries through his system of teaching. I hope you come and experience his depth of knowledge.”Sterios currently lives and teaches in San Luis Obispo, Cali., and leads workshops and retreats worldwide. He is a former contributing editor for Yoga Journal. His DVD, “Gravity & Grace,” was selected as one of the top 15 yoga videos of all time by Richard Rosen of Yoga Journal. He also founded Manduka, a leading eco yoga products company in 1997.Sterios will guide participants in very clear and concise ways on how to sharpen their attention and reacquaint themselves with subtle body sensations, often experienced around the heart, the belly and the pelvic floor, which help people heal and overcome injuries. Whether you are currently dealing with injury or have other range of motion issues, the classes will help you build confidence. “You will discover the ever-present tools of gravity and grace, that help uncover physical and mental limitations and through a strengthening awareness of the subtle body, begin a more natural and personal healing of current or old injuries,” Morris said.Bodies go through periods of injury or limited mobility. By design, the practice of Hatha Yoga equips the practitioner with tools to overcome resistance as the result of injury and build strength to return mobility without pain. In addition, yoga has the potential to produce a powerful experience beyond the physical healing, depending on the quality of one’s attention during the practice. This added quality of yoga helps participants overcome psychological limitations as well. This workshop is also for those without any injuries. Students at all levels are welcome.Call 970-476-7400 for more information or to register. Or email
