It’s the middle of the summer and we’ve all been hitting the trails: hiking, biking, running, climbing…and not enough stretching, meditating, and deep breathing. The cure? Telluride Yoga Festival kicks off this week.
When we interviewed Telluride Yoga Center maven Kristin Taylor for a story in this summer’s San Juan Skyway Visitor Guide, she called it the “Rocky Mountain Quad.” It’s the beautiful and painful condition that builds in our bodies from all the hard work and mountain exercise. But yoga isn’t just about conditioning the body, it’s a holistic endeavor for your mind, your body, and your soul. If you need some rejuvenation, you can get your fix this week at the festival. There are workshops, classes, training, hikes, SUP adventures, slacklining, meditation, lectures—take your pick from the schedule of events.
