At 10,780 feet above sea level, a group of nearly a dozen yoga enthusiasts inhale and exhale slowly, surrounded by Arapahoe Basin's east-facing wall of sheer rocky cliffs and hardy pine trees on Friday morning. The ski resort held its first weekly yoga session for customers who enjoy meditating in the great outdoors without putting on hiking boots. "Outdoor yoga is nice because it feels less pressured compared a studio," says Sarah Schwartz, who is a local instructor. The one-hour yoga classes are from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Fridays, until Aug. 18, by registering on the resort's website.
