Yoga to ‘empower the collective heart’
VAIL — Former Vail yogi Charry Morris returns on Friday to the Vail Vitality Center through Sunday to lead a series of workshops devoted to “empowering the collective heart.”
The four workshops will focus on breathing exercises and sleep-based meditations, as well as gentle yoga poses. Each session will build on the previous one for a cumulative effect of unwinding and relaxation. If you only have time for one or two, then each session will stand on its own as a complete practice.
“This is a great opportunity to relax, restore and reorient ourselves toward heartfelt engagement in the world,” said Vail Vitality Center yoga director Karen Anderson.
‘For the Greater Good’
The weekend is designed to realize the support of the community. The cost is $30 in advance or $35 the day of; purchase all four for $100.
“We have elections and governmental decisions and social media platforms that are the manifestation of the world at large,” Morris said. “We can, individually, work to find greater harmony for the greater good. This is what we are cultivating over the weekend — a group practice where each individual effort informs the collective heart.”

Morris, also known as Charry Shakti Om, formerly served as the yoga director at Aria Spa and Club and taught at most of the gyms and studios throughout Eagle County at one point or another. She is now based in Dallas.
“Charry is a beloved teacher because of her incredible warmth and energy,” Anderson said. “She connects with every one of her students and is able to share her wisdom in a way that is meaningful and powerful.”
All levels of yogis are welcome to attend.

“We’re excited for Charry to return to Colorado to offer us a weekend of yoga,” Anderson said. “She is an inspiring teacher and these workshops will help us not only rejuvenate from a busy winter of work and play, but also reconnect and empower each other around the current political environment.”
