AT ARIA YOGA STUDIO WE PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
“Every day we are engaged in a miracle we don’t even recognize”
- Thich Nhat Hanh
What is being mindful? Being mindful is recognizing that we are already what we seek. It’s an understanding and nurturing of our relationship to ourselves. Being aware of our actions and bringing peace and joy into them. How you treat yourself is how you approach life. We just need to be aware and mindful enough to see it.
FEATURED STUDENT: JAN SACKBAUER
Aria's student of the month is Jan Sackbauer. Jan has been practicing yoga for over two years. After experiencing three lower back injuries, Jan decided to try yoga to heal her body. Like most of us, she realized that she needed to stretch regularly in order to continue to enjoy her outdoor recreational activities like hiking. AND, like most of us, Jan discovered that she did not have the motivation to spend needed time daily to stretch on her own. Jan's favorite poses are any of the lunge poses, as they target tight hip flexors, and strengthen and stretch hamstrings. She notices her body literally says "ooh, and ahhh..." when she practices lunge! Jan has grown to love practicing regularly at Aria located at Vail Cascade, which has a profound sense of place. She likes looking out the windows during class...watching the seasons change as she works on balance poses. Jan appreciates a general enduring feeling of well-being which she attributes to her yoga practice.
