Yoga Rocks the Butte with Music and Family Fun

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 14, 2011 9:30 am

By the time the New Year rolls around, you should be skiing hard enough that your muscles begin to tense up and tighten as powder conditions push your body to the limits. It’s about time to take care of yourself, both physically and spiritually. To find this equilibrium, many Colorado residents turn to yoga. This February 10th-12th, 2012, Crested Butte presents the first ever Winter Yoga, Music, and Family Festival benefiting the Yoga World Reach – a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, motivate, and empower Yoga teachers to provide outreach in undeveloped countries. 

Yoga Rocks the Butte Winter Festival is presented by Yoga for the Peaceful and Hanuman Festival LLC. Music presenters include Dave Stringer, Steve Gold, DJ Drez, Govindas and Rahda, Leraine Horstmanshoff, and Joey Lugassy. Market exhibitors include High Chi, Bali Malas, annie O boutique, and The OM Collection.
