Frisco Bay Marina now offering yoga

Each Friday throughout the summer, the Frisco Bay Marina is hosting outdoor yoga. Local yoga instructor Lauren Brand teaches the classes, which run from 7:15 to 8:15 a.m. each Friday through approximately Aug. 15, depending on whether morning temperatures stay conducive to outdoor yoga.

“Yoga at the Frisco Bay Marina was created to celebrate summer and connect with our community,” Brand said. “It is an amazing way to start the day. The gorgeous scenery, warm sun and gentle breeze, combined with friends practicing yoga, is better than coffee. And this is coming from a self-proclaimed coffee addict.”

Participants are asked to bring their own mat and towel, if possible, but a limited number of mats will be available free of charge. Participants should plan to wear sunscreen, comfortable clothing, sunglasses and a smile. Each class will be customized to the needs of the attendees.

Classes are $8, and participants may pay by cash or check. Contact Brand for more information at laurenliz.brand@gmail.com or (303) 956-0547. For more information about the Frisco Bay Marina, visit http://www.friscomarina.com.

Practice Yoga on the Mountain at Arapahoe Basin

Arapahoe Basin is kicking off the summer season with its popular Yoga on the Mountain on Sunday, July 13.

Invigorate your mind and body with holistic hike, yoga and luncheon at A-Basin. Hike to mid-mountain for a one-hour yoga session with instructor Allison Simson on the deck of the Black Mountain Lodge, with sweeping vistas of the Continental Divide. Afterward, have a spa luncheon before hiking back down to the base area. Bring your own yoga mat and water bottle. The hike begins at 9 a.m. at an elevation of 10,870 feet with a gain of 650 feet and will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Event is limited to 50 people to ensure adequate attention from the instructor. This event is not lift-served.

“Yoga cultivates the mind-body-spirit connection that allows the brain to effectively direct the body with ease and grace,” Simson said. “The more aware you are of your body’s position in space, the better able you are to direct it. We’ll play with strength, flexibility and posture alignment in the fresh mountain air.”

The cost is $40 per person, plus tax, for all participants, and reservations are required. Limited spaces remain; call (888) 272-7246 to register, or visit http://www.arapahoebasin.com for more information.
