Thanks so much for this article, I have just moved to the Vail area from Denver and I did not know where to go to continue my Yoga. I will be living in Edwards for the winter so I was excited to see two choices, Dogma Athletica and Mountain Soul Yoga. Which of these two do you prefer?
Welcome to the Vail Valley!, We are so happy to have you and Edwards is a great place to live. Both of those studios are fantastic. You can't go wrong with either one. I personally use Dogma Athletica, I love their instructors but I have many friends who go to Mountain Soul and they rave about it. I would choose by whichever studio is closet to your new home.
This is great!
Awesome collection of information with detail of each location and what they offer. I am a big fan of Slow Flow yoga as I find it helps open up my hips. I am a keen runner so my hips and IT Bands are often tight.
Thanks for the comment Tim
Slow Flow Yoga is a form of yoga that links breath, movement, and poses together. The pace is usually slower, but challenges practitioners to be present when poses become difficult and hard to hold. Slow flow allows yogis to become familiar with their bodies, create a reflective pause, and cultivate the ability to go inward. It is a wonderful practice for body and mind.
I have just come back from vacation where I was introduced to "Yin Practice"? Do you know if anybody in the Vail Valley offers this type of practice?
Ying Yoga is the opposite of dynamic yoga that is predominately offered in most yoga studios. Many call Ying Yoga the “other half of yoga.” It features floor postures that are held passively for several minutes to gain a safe ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. It emphasizes stillness and silence. Yes there are places in the Vail Valley that offer Yin Yoga. Check out Vail Athletic Club, Revolution Power Yoga and Mountain Soul Yoga.
Hello I am hoping to be a yoga instructor and I am looking for a yoga teacher's course in the Vail Valley, do you know of any?
Yes, check out Vail Vitality Center Yoga teacher course and Mountain Soul, they both offer exceptional yoga teacher training,
Wow, Thanks for this list of local yoga studios. We will be visiting Vail this March for a ski vacation and hope me and my wife hope to take a couple of Yoga classes while we are there. We will be staying at Hotel Talisa because it is a great ski-in ski-out resort but I am so excited to see that they have lots of yoga classes at their Club Aria! So happy to have my yoga after a hard day of skiing!
Thanks for the comment, I hope you have wonderful snow while you are visiting and yes yoga is wonderful for stretching after a long day on the slopes. Enjoy, Club Aria is a fabulous place to work out-enjoy!
