Yoga Body Bootcamp comes to Vail
VAIL – Yoga Body Bootcamp (YBB) is a new yoga-fitness hybrid, and Vail Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa is hosting a one-day introduction to this new workout on Sunday from 9 to 10:30 a.m. with Tracy Long.YBB is best described as a combination of The Biggest Loser, Amazing Race and Survivor mixed with the inner stillness of yoga. This ever-evolving, total-body workout was created by Deborah Williamson, owner of Midwest Power Yoga and co-founder of Live, Love, Teach (200- and 500-hour yoga teacher training programs).”People can expect the unexpected at Yoga Body Bootcamp,” said Long, YBB trainer. “Between the limitless yoga poses, which we convert to interval stations, and the different mix of people within the group, you never know how the class is going to unfold. Add spontaneity, laughter and a good dose of middle school gym class and that equals a good YBB class.” This one-day class offers a mixture of traditional yoga poses and fitness bootcamp stations.”Anyone can benefit from YBB,” Long said. “If you’re a regular yoga practitioner, you’ll have the opportunity to dramatically increase your strength and cardiovascular stamina, while enjoying a more interpersonal connection than most yoga classes offer. If you love fitness classes and yoga seems a little too ‘spiritual,’ rest assured you will get the repetition you need to master the poses, in addition to a physically demanding workout.”Long is a lifelong athlete who first came to yoga in 2001 in an attempt to stretch muscles made fantastically tight from running. A few years later, she decided to focus on health and fitness and received her initial 200-hour yoga certification in 2008. She then attended her first training in 2009 with her primary teacher Baron Baptiste.Cost for Yoga Body Bootcamp at Vail Vitality Center is $10 in advance, or $15 the day of the workshop. This rate applies to members and guests. For information or to register for Yoga Body Bootcamp on Sunday at Vail Vitality Center, visit http://www.vailathleticclub.com or call 970-476-7721.
