Our certified yoga teachers provide excellent instruction to newbies and experienced practitioners. We offer a full schedule of weekly classes, private instruction, private groups, and special workshops. Classes are held in the Living Room - our beautiful, new yoga studio at the Inn at Stratton Mountain; the Sports Center; on Stratton's Summit, Mid-Mountain, and other resort locations. Practicing yoga helps one increase flexibility, strength, balance, focus, and mindfulness. It is perfect for athletes who are strong and tight, as well as seniors, children, and everyone in-between.
Yoga Guidelines: Yoga is practiced barefoot. Wear comfortable clothes. Drink water before and after class. Do not eat within an hour of class. Tell instructor if you have to leave class early. Turn cell phones off. Do not enter class after start time. Bring an open mind and a willing spirit.
”Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are.” ~ Jason Crandell
While living in Brooklyn, Laura began yoga teacher training with Eileen Muir at Karuna Yoga and Healing Arts Center in Northampton, MA. Laura has continued to inform her practice and her teaching through intensives, immersions and several 10 day Vipassana meditation retreats, as taught by SN Goenka. She hopes that by continued and determined practice she may be of service to others on the path, linking breath to movement, and linking movement on the mat to a life of courage and sincerity off the mat.
Living Room: The Living Room, located at the Inn at Stratton Mountain, is our beautiful new, 1800 SF yoga studio. Sunlight streams through a bank of windows on the northern wall, and a big, beautiful fireplace on the opposite wall boasts a toasty, roaring fire all winter long. Wood floors, warm colors, soft lighting, and open space, provide a welcoming, soothing place to practice yoga. We encourage you to bring your own yoga mat, however mats, and props are provided for your use.
On-Mountain Yoga: Ride the gondola up the mountain for Summit Yoga, held on the deck of Hubert Haus, or at the top of the Kiddebrook trail. Join us for a hike to the Mid-Mountain Lodge deck for yoga, or a hike to a beautiful bridge, where we practice yoga to the sound of the brook below. Bring your own mat, water, suntan lotion, bug repellent and a smile. Yoga is all about practicing being in the present moment. Being on the mountain, outside in nature, helps us quiet the mind and be present.
