EAGLE-VAIL — Revolution Power Yoga in Eagle-Vail hosts ’80s NITE on Friday evening. Expect a fun-filled event for people of all ages and yoga levels. The intention of the class is to have fun, rock out to stellar ’80s music, sweat and dance. The class begins at 7 p.m., followed by a dance party at 8:30 p.m.
“We encourage participants to come dressed in their most gnarly ’80s attire: leg warmers, leotards, bright colors, headbands, etc.,” said Amanda Leavitt, class leader. “The teachers and ambassadors will be all decked out, so no need to hold back.”
“New to yoga? Totally rad, come join us,” Leavitt continued. “This is an amazing opportunity to make light of a new experience with laughter and fun. Yoga fiend? Awesome, join us for some fun variations of poses you know and love.”
Leavitt will will be joined by teachers who are new to Revolution: Emily Selonick, Molly Holmes, Kady Warble, Mary Gavin and Karlie Cummins.
Leavitt has studied yoga at the Pavones Yoga Center in Costa Rica and with Baron Baptiste, of Baptiste Power Yoga. Her multidimensional approach is based on Baptiste methodology, nature-inspired yogic principles, mindful awareness and the underlying anatomical structures of the body. Her high-energy flows are paired with deep musculoskeletal release, exploration of habitual patterns through awareness and a playful mindset.
Donations made during ’80s NITE will go toward Leavit’s goal of becoming a teacher of teachers by 2014. Leavitt has been invited to assist a 200-hour yoga teacher training program in Costa Rica. While there, she will begin a 500-hour certification process.
“Amanda is unique because she has training in both Power Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga,” said Mary Jane McEachron of her experience practicing with Leavitt. “With her beautiful personality, her quiet demeanor along with the tender loving care she gives to her students, one will have more than a spectacular experience practicing under her guidance.”
A donation of $10 is suggested.
Company officials say every aspect of Vail management is now focused on attaining the company’s goal of achieving a zero net operating footprint by 2030. Vail Resorts calls the plan their “Commitment to Zero,” and defines it a zero net carbon emissions by 2030, zero waste to landfills, and zero operating impact on forests and natural habitat.
