The GoPro Mountain Games are the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music, and every year yoga is becoming a more prominent part of the program.
“Yoga has been a huge success,” says Tom Boyd, director of communications for the Vail Valley Foundation. “It’s definitely a part of what the mountain lifestyle has become. Tons of people who kayak or climb or run or bike are going to yoga to stay fit and healthy and centered and focused.”
Local, regional and national yoga teachers have come to lead classes at the Mountain Games, including Kathryn Budig, Rachel Brathen and Gina Caputo. This year, the lineup includes local teachers Rachel Delong, Bobby L’Heureux, Kim Fuller, Yvonne Schwartz and Jullian Keaveny, and Boulder-based Gina Caputo returns to the Mountain Games to lead classes on Saturday and Sunday.
Check out this year’s full yoga lineup — Thursday, June 7 through Sunday, June 10 — at mountaingames.com/the-games/yoga/.
As yoga at the Mountain Games continues to grow, Boyd says practitioners attending classes will see more and more offerings added, with different styles and themes presented throughout the weekend.
“It really becomes its own yoga festival within the Mountain Games,” Boyd shares.
