Vacations aren’t what they used to be. Now we want them to be life-enhancing, even life-changing. Instead of being an excuse for indulgence, sometimes we want them to be about wellness and meditative, restorative experiences. One way to do this is with a Yoga get-away.
Yoga is one of the most healing and healthy ways of dealing with life’s stresses. Now imagine combining the powerfully positive benefits of Yoga with the powerfully beautiful scenery and adventurous spirit of Salida and Buena Vista. Ahh, yes. Or should we say, ommmm.
The two just go together. Yoga has specific breathing exercises while Chaffee County is simply breath-taking. Yoga’s helps the lungs operate more efficiently, a definite benefit to adjusting to our high-mountain altitude.
Yoga also makes you feel more energetic — the perfect complement for the myriad of active adventures here. Yoga improves flexibility and strength – attributes that will really come in handy for things like ziplining and rock climbing, too. Yoga improves body alignment and balance, perhaps readying you for river sports like paddle boarding.
The slow physical postures are intended to make you mindful of the moment. The mountains work the same way. As you take in their timeless majesty, thoughts focus on just being here. And once that feeling hits, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.
