Shadow Yoga Basics: Stepping into Strength
Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the fundamentals of shadow yoga.  Shadow Yoga, founded by Shandor Remete, is a Hatha Yoga system that utilizes rhythmic breathing, bandhas (energetic locks) and the system of marma (vital junctions) to free the peripheral body of its energetic obstructions and to ignite our inner fire for healing and meditation. Shadow Yoga consists of circular and spiraling movements, warrior stances, and sun salutation forms that prepare students to safely and effectively practice the more advanced limbs of Hatha Yoga.

The Yoga Lab: NEW Alignment Fundamentals
Limited Capacity seats available

Given the uniqueness of each of our bodies, there are no absolutes in yoga posture alignment. Poses don’t have alignment, bodies have alignment! However, in group classes, we explore postures together that have a defined aesthetic and expression. In this Yoga Lab, we’ll explore some blueprint poses in each family of postures to better understand how to find your informed yet unique expression through the Integrated Vinyasa™ alignment principles of balancing polar key actions, observing tension and load on our tissues, and understanding the impact of our nervous system on our ability to experience change in our bodies. Includes lecture and “workshopping” of asanas. Great for both students and for teachers who want to learn how to invite students to explore their own alignment.

Hike the Famous Telluride Via Ferrata - [$]
Limited Capacity seats available
Please purchase a $175 Climb the Via Ferrata ticket here: Climb the Via Ferrata
For a breathtaking, unique adventure, look no further than the Telluride Via Ferrata. The route precariously traverses rock faces up to 600 feet above the forest below, exhilaratingly exposed in sections that would be impassable without the steel cables and scattered steel holds along the way. The Telluride Via Ferrata provides unmatched views of Bridal Veil Falls (the highest free falling waterfall in Colorado) the town of Telluride far below, and the surrounding peaks of the San Juan mountains.  Think of it as a hike along a sheer cliff, with steel rungs to hold onto when the going gets steep.  

Mountain Trip is Telluride's only guide service accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association and when accompanied by our highly trained and experienced guides, the Telluride Via Ferrata is a perfect adventure for visitors of a wide range of abilities, albeit not particularly for those who have a fear of heights.

Mountain Trip will provide you with bottled water and snacks such as granola bars upon request, but ideally bring your own water bottle. We suggest you wear comfortable clothing appropriate for a half day hike on the day of your trip. It is important that all guests wear closed sole shoes with good traction, such as trail running shoes or light hiking boots. If there is a chance of precipitation, please add a light rain jacket to your kit. If you'd like to bring a daypack to carry extra items, please do so. We will have some light daypacks to loan out, should anyone want to borrow one. Definitely bring a camera or smart phone, as the views and setting is stunning!

Gratuity is never expected, but always appreciated. If you had a great time and feel that your guide did an exceptional job, a small demonstration of your appreciation would be welcome. Rough guidelines on gratuity would be roughly 10-15% of the trip cost.

During the ceremony we will HONOR the 7 Directions. With each direction of the 7 Direction Cycle there will be space to revisit intentions planted at Winter Solstice from the as we ask for clarity on actions needed to bring these intentions to fruition in this vibrant energy of Summer Solstice and clarity on what do we need to let go of so we can grow abundantly in our life and the path we are choosing to walk!! We will then move into a self-reflective YOGA and we will finish with a vision quest that will allow you space to go on a soul’s journey through a guided meditation.

Enhance your transformational weekend with a Sound Bath Shavasana where your body and mind are immersed in live meditative vibrational sounds of a Paiste gongs, quartz crystal and bronze singing bowls, as well as other ancient instruments. The sound vibrations emitted by the gongs and the Tibetan bowls send signals that are interpreted at the biological, energetic and emotional levels, directing the cells to develop in a homeostatic rather than unbalanced manner.
Gong Baths bring an intense sense of well-being and re-stabilize the balance of energies.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”

Somewhere along the way, Flow-style classes largely lost the emphasis on cultivating whole-being balance and some sequencing became more sweat oriented and haphazard. Gina’s Integrated Vinyasa™ restores balance between effort and ease, gross and subtle, anatomy and energetics and alignment and flow for a sustainable, intelligent practice that supports your entire body, mind, spirit complex...all in a extremely fun and playful way that will leave you energized and wanting more of Gina and DJ Drez.

MC YOGI specializes in a mystical fusion of styles that skillfully combines his love of yoga and hip-hop.

At 18, he experienced a life-changing meditation session with a famous Indian spiritual leader. He spent the ensuing two years immersed in the studies of yoga, devotional chanting, and philosophy but he never lost his love for reggae, electronica and hip-hop.

His latest singles “Golden State of Mind” and “Spiritual Graffiti” are currently available on all music platforms. His last album, RITUAL MYSTICAL (feat East Forest), made history by going #1 on the Electronic charts — Aug. 2016.

Return to the roots, fluidity, and foundation of your yoga practice in this alignment-based floating SUP Yoga workshop on Elk Meadows Lake. Creating space to breathe, pause, and slow down in our practice allows us to more intimately explore the quality and extension of our breath, and the subtleties and intricacies of our pranayama and asana practice. Together we'll surf the pranic waves of our inner oceans one breath and one asana at a time.

GENERAL SUP YOGA INFO
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga fuses the timeless practice of yoga with an exciting water sport and adds a challenge away from our mats that most of us take for granted. Students first learn the basics of SUP by becoming familiar with mounting the board, paddle stroke and core stabilization. Once anchored, class begins with pranayama and meditation to integrate the pranic movement of the water element into the practice, followed by low center of gravity poses and continuing further into a vinyasa practice from there. *This class is open all levels of practice and SUP experience. **For those interested, session will end with photos of you in your favorite poses on the board so you have a memory to take home with you.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

SUP Yoga: The Basics & Beauty of Yoga on Board [$]
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.
To add this class to your schedule, please purchase a $25 Specialty Class ticket here:  Specialty Class
Take your practice to the water! In this fun, refreshing, dynamic, and introductory SUP Yoga Workshop you'll be transported to a fluid and easeful plane of practice and being to explore, break down, and learn all of the basics and beauty of yoga on the water. We will enjoy floating through our nature-inspired practice in a nourishing and sustainable manner. We'll challenge ourselves to shift our perspective as we take our yoga practice from the mat and land to the water and flow with grace, mindfulness, and strength.  

GENERAL SUP YOGA INFO
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga fuses the timeless practice of yoga with an exciting water sport and adds a challenge away from our mats that most of us take for granted. Students first learn the basics of SUP by becoming familiar with mounting the board, paddle stroke and core stabilization. Once anchored, class begins with pranayama and meditation to integrate the pranic movement of the water element into the practice, followed by low center of gravity poses and continuing further into a vinyasa practice from there. *This class is open all levels of practice and SUP experience. **For those interested, session will end with photos of you in your favorite poses on the board so you have a memory to take home with you.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

A Photographic Exploration of the Power of Yoga to Unite People Across Cultural and Physical Divides
Limited Capacity seats available

Join world-renowned artist/photographer, Robert Sturman, as he and his camera take us around the globe. This photographic exploration highlights the power of yoga to unite people across cultural and physical divides. Sturman’s work has given him the opportunity to make art with yogis in Kenya, Italy, Thailand, Israel, Cuba, to name but a few. From United States prisons to orphanages in Africa and the streets of Palestine, he has photographed all walks of life, embodying yoga poses with equanimity and grace. So many people, so many stories: breast cancer survivors, Maasai Warriors, Hasidic Jews, police officers, soldiers and inmates serving life sentences, each one a unique expression of humanity. "For me, making art is about much more than a pretty picture. My responsibility as an artist is to capture the intrinsic beauty and irreducible value of every subject, to awaken compassion and to use art to inspire humanity to move forward, reaching towards our greatest potential.” Robert will also be sharing a few secrets on how to make powerful, poetic images, celebrating the beautiful art of yoga. One of these secrets is already within your grasp, as many of his published works have been captured through the lens of his phone.

BE RECEPTIVE! Yin & Yoga Nidra
Limited Capacity filling up

The Yin Yoga practice is subtle and deep, and its physical purpose is to work beyond the muscle tissue delving into the connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage and the deepest facia networks in the body from head to toe. The physical and emotional releases will create space for Grace and the healing powers of the intuitive body to take over. This is a creative and intelligently sequenced Yin Yoga practice that offers options to soften or kick up the effects of each pose. Practice will end with a Psychic Body Scan Yoga Nidra.

SUP Yoga: The Heart of Yoga on the Water [$]
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.
To add this class to your schedule, please purchase a $25 Specialty Class ticket here:  Specialty Class
In this 2 hour nourishing and dynamic floating yoga journey we will slow down together on the water to explore more deeply infusing our yoga and SUP yoga practices with more Metta, Loving Kindness. As we mindfully weave our way through our alignment inspired SUP Yoga workshop, we will challenge ourselves to see how greatly we can take care of ourselves, and of our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits as we breathe and flow. We will practice carrying the loving kindness, compassion, and mindfulness that we cultivate and create in our yoga practices off the mat and water to more positively affect and transform our day to day lives so that we may live with more ease.

GENERAL SUP YOGA INFO
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga fuses the timeless practice of yoga with an exciting water sport and adds a challenge away from our mats that most of us take for granted. Students first learn the basics of SUP by becoming familiar with mounting the board, paddle stroke and core stabilization. Once anchored, class begins with pranayama and meditation to integrate the pranic movement of the water element into the practice, followed by low center of gravity poses and continuing further into a vinyasa practice from there. *This class is open all levels of practice and SUP experience. **For those interested, session will end with photos of you in your favorite poses on the board so you have a memory to take home with you.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

Rewrite Your Stress Response
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn to rewrite your unconscious response to stress in this therapeutic practice. When danger is present, whether it be physical danger (car accident, being attacked) or perceived danger (relationship worries, financial concerns), the body kicks on a series of physiological responses that induce stress and protection on the body. This activation of the Sympathetic Nervous System is often referred to as the “Fight or Flight” response. The endocrine system then releases the stress hormone called cortisol. This hormone induces emotions like worry, fear, anger and grief, all resulting in stress. High cortisol levels are associated with chronic fatigue, memory loss and Alzheimer’s.

Through conscious breath work, structured concentration and practice in moving through perceived “danger” (muscular contraction, unconscious tension) we can learn to shift our unnecessary stress responses so we are no longer subject to our feelings of anxiety and unrest. Leave the class with a deep sense of calm and presence.

SUP Yoga: Take Your Practice to the Water [$]
Limited Capacity filling up
To add this class to your schedule, please purchase a $25 Specialty Class ticket here:  Specialty Class
In this fun, refreshing, dynamic, and introductory SUP Yoga Workshop you'll be transported to a fluid and easeful plane of practice and being to explore, break down, and learn all of the basics and beauty of yoga on the water. We will enjoy floating through our nature-inspired practice in a nourishing and sustainable manner. We'll challenge ourselves to shift our perspective as we take our yoga practice from the mat and land to the water and flow with grace, mindfulness, and strength.

GENERAL SUP YOGA INFO
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga fuses the timeless practice of yoga with an exciting water sport and adds a challenge away from our mats that most of us take for granted. Students first learn the basics of SUP by becoming familiar with mounting the board, paddle stroke and core stabilization. Once anchored, class begins with pranayama and meditation to integrate the pranic movement of the water element into the practice, followed by low center of gravity poses and continuing further into a vinyasa practice from there. *This class is open all levels of practice and SUP experience. **For those interested, session will end with photos of you in your favorite poses on the board so you have a memory to take home with you.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

Props to bring Please bring hat, swimsuit, layers, water, sunscreen and your camera!

Restoring the Spirit Muscle: Anatomy of the Psoas
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Enjoy an anatomically informed Yin & Restorative lunar practice with internationally celebrated teacher Kali Basman. Restore the tranquil rest response of the nervous system by learning to soften, stretch, and strengthen the Psoas - our most intrinsic core muscle. Learn the tools for structural restoration of your own unique anatomy to release accumulated trauma and tension and provide easier pathways to access rich restoration.

The pathways in which Prana flows can be dictated by our skeletal structure, trauma residue, and behavioral patterns. Uncover your own anatomical intelligence to create a more rich, robust, and ultimately restorative practice.

This yin/restorative style experiential workshop will blend subtle energetics with psychological self inquiry, recent science relating to fight or flight response, and embodied anatomy. Learn how to release your most intrinsic muscles, stabilize the pelvis, spread the sacrum, and lengthen the psoas to reset the vagal tone and surrender into the serenity state.

Hands-Free Thai Yoga Massage
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn to use your feet, legs, arms and other parts of your body (except hands) to guide the receiver through a series of yoga postures with fluid movements, gentle pressure and stretching. Hands are “doing” vehicles of our body. By slowing down our hands with Thai massage, we will cultivate a calm mind and learn to move more intuitively. Your hard working hands will appreciate you for giving them a much-needed break! 

No previous Thai massage experience needed. No need to come with a partner.

Sound Bath to Close the Weekend
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Close out your transformational weekend with a Sound Bath Savasana where your body and mind are immersed in live meditative vibrational sounds of a Paiste gongs, quartz crystal and bronze singing bowls, as well as other ancient instruments. The sound vibrations emitted by the gongs and the Tibetan bowls send signals that are interpreted at the biological, energetic and emotional levels, directing the cells to develop in a homeostatic rather than unbalanced manner.
Gong Baths bring an intense sense of well-being and re-stabilize the balance of energies.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”

Enjoy releaxing into the powerful healing and reverberating waves of sound and resound to massage, cleanse and regenerate the nervous and glandular systems. Simply lie back and have your own experience!
