Hi Heather, you can definitely count me in for yoga and thank you and everyone at Balanced Rock for providing this. I met you at the Yoga Jambalaya last year - the Balanced Rock instructors are amazing!

That's great! I'm in if I can make it over from UP in time. Thanks to Balanced Rock for offering this.

In the world of yoga practices, 7 am isn't particularly early! Will be a nice time before the potential heat of the day sets in too.

Being new to a yoga practice is no hindrance. If you are trying to do the pose, you are doing it as well as someone who's been practicing it for years.

Actually, if there's going to be early morning yoga, and considering the likely demographic, maybe there should be post-yoga physiotherapy? We could put YOSAR and the clinic on alert, too.

There once was a Hiker named "Mighty"
Who thought he'd give yoga a try, eh?
With Werner on call,
He gave it his all...
What more could be said than namaste?!

Good one Lila, competing with the ST poet laurate?

Given the demographics I think a facelift at the yoga class is in order

sorry, but I think everyone will be busy at the group El Cap Rappel, starting early that same morning.

hey yoga is happening. it will be anounced at the facelift. i had a garbled message from heather, so i will check the office in the morning for the exact schedule and post up then.
i just want to say that this class will be great for beginners and experianced yogis alike. the instructors are all climbers and in my biased opinion amamzing. i'll check the time, but whatever it is will be worth getting up for. this is mountain yoga....coffee is accepted, as are stiff, creaky, cranky folks.

okay, i found schedules in the office and here it is...
wednesday 7:30-8:30 eliza kerr-
have you ever had a yoga teacher who climbed the nose in a day? eliza has been teaching yoga in this community for over a decade. her practice these days is gentle. a perfect way to start the day in the valley.
thursday 7:30-8:30 paula wild
well i have never been to one of paula's classes, so i can't tell you anything about it, but she is a climber and i think she is cool.
friday 7:30-8:30 heather sullivan
heather is one of my best friends and an amazing yoga teacher. it is completely acceptable to have coffee before her classes, she will have. despite her caffeine level, her classes are somewhat gentle (there are usually a few spicy bits in there, but compared to a hot city class, this will be more of a wake up the body for a day of adventure.)
saturday- no class
sunday- 7:30-8:30 jon-paul salonen
i've never been to jon's class either, but i bet it is pretty good.

their notes on the flyer say that every class is open to and geared towards all levels of yoga, from absolute beginner to seasoned practitioner. limited mats available.
so there you have it. there will also be a community yoga class on wednesday from 6:00-7:15 in el portal at the el portal school multi purpose room. the instructor will be demian mckinley who will be a special guest teacher from hawaii.

Maybe I missed it, but where will the practice be held each day?

I'm sure the info will be at registration.

Thanks,

It's early..if you go to bed around 12:00 every night...and Yellow Pines doesn't warm up till around 10;30......
.and don't tell me to go to bed early, it ain't happening at the facelift .. .

I hope it's @ campground A, or B.....................(-;
and please have the free coffee and scones ready....butter & jam on the side..please.
