Yoga is a part of life for many here in Breckenridge, and classes are available to suit almost every yoga style and preference: Whether you’re looking for classic Vinyasa, a gentle beginner class, a heart-pounding workout or a chance to take your practice outdoors, you’ll find an array of welcoming options for yoga in Breckenridge offered by local instructors and studios.
Here’s a sampling of classes at yoga studios where you can find your balance — and your new yoga home. Namaste.
THE CLASSICS. Whether a seasoned yogi, or new to your practice these studios offer classes that will help further your journey from any stage. Bhava Yoga offers three different levels of vinyasa classes, each designed for a different ability level and to leave a specific feeling or “bhava” in your mind and body: Ground, Align, & Elevate. During Prana Flow at Meta Yoga instructors focus on perfecting postures, intention, and the breath. Postures may be held for several breaths and modified to facilitate personal growth and transformation. Both the Breckenridge Recreation Center, and BreckCreate offer classes that focus on fundamentals of poses, breathwork, energy and meditations.
THE WORKOUT. So you want to sweat? Meta Yoga’s Heated Align & Flow focus on core strength and more challenging poses. Or try the Pilates Lab at Bhava Yoga where you can expect a strong emphasis on using deep abdominal muscles for both movement and stability, while attending to proper alignment, breathing, mental focus, flexibility, and overall strength training. Power Yoga is also offered with the drop in fitness classes at the Breckenridge Recreation Center – a high energy, vigorous flow that incorporates static and dynamic, full body movements.
STRETCH AND RELAX. Looking for the ultimate reset? Try Bhava’s Restore, a class crafted with stillness and recovery in mind. Or Meta offers Gentle Flow, which focuses on gentle stretches and breathing. During the winter, both studios offer Après Ski Yoga Classes designed to give your body some love after a day spent on the slopes. All of these Restorative Yoga classes will leave your mind, body and soul feeling decompressed, nourished, and restored.
WHAT ABOUT KIDS & SENIORS? The Breckenridge Recreation Center is the ideal place for any member of the family who wants to try a first yoga class.
