Yoga on vacation? Why not. Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge has teamed up with Sustainable Earth Yoga Retreats to provide yoga instruction as an option during your stay.
Granlibakken is the first Lake Tahoe area resort to offer on-site/in-suite private yoga instruction for individuals, couples and groups.
If you have a dedicated home routine than this is the an ideal way to maintain while you’re away enjoying Lake Tahoe’s fresh mountain air and unquenchable sunshine.
If you’re a first-timer on the mat, this would be a pleasant, comfortable introduction. Yoga is a mindful exploration of one’s space, internal and external. It is a practice that is deeply personal and one that opens itself infinitely, both constant and evolving in its nature.
As founder of Sustainable Earth Yoga Retreats, instructor Ashley Aarti Cooper is Yoga Alliance and Reiki I-certified. While guiding, Ashley brings her student to their physical edge and encourages them to draw their senses within to experience the more subtle layers of yoga. Concentrating on a true yolking of breath, movement and spirit, Ashley’s classes are meditative, explorative and playful.
Yoga provides greater mental clarity, flexibility in both body and mind, a calmer and steadier heart, healthier functioning systems (i.e. digestive, cardiovascular, emotional), pain relief, a lighter spirit, longer and leaner muscles, more open joints, and increased range of motion.
Ashley teaches introductory yoga as well as providing private instruction for athletes, those with injuries and other therapeutic needs. To better serve her students Ashley draws on many disciplines for holistic approaches specific to each person.
To practice at Granlibakken, all you need is a bit of curiosity, a towel and clothes you can move comfortably in – Sustainable Earth Yoga Retreats provides the mats and any other supplies you may need.??It is recommended that participants drink plenty of water before and after the session and eat lightly within the two hours beforehand for ease of movement.
