Now is the time to prepare your body for the slopes with yoga’s deep focused energy and balance to aid in skiing’s rapid speed and fluidity. The more yoga one practices, the more powerful and graceful one becomes both on and off the slopes.

This special workshop will help participants:
*Build core strength and stability
*Align hips, knee and ankle joints
*Expand lungs and your mind
*Build a strong foundation and stronger legs
*Learn to prevent and avert injury
*Develop great mental focus and body awareness that will enhance your skills both on and off the mountain
Shaelah Morris is a former pro-skier who has traveled the world competing in Big Mountain Competitions and Skier-X’s. She is no stranger to knowing what it takes to achieve one’s best performance on the slopes. Morris combines her love for skiing and yoga to show you how you can remain healthy, centered, strong, flexible and focused so you will have your best season ever– injury free!
“Perhaps the biggest benefit yoga can bring to your skiing is injury prevention. Skiing asks a lot from the body—cold muscles are called upon to perform a variety of functions, while dexterity, balance, and high levels of concentration are also a must. For those skiers who hit the slopes sporadically, these athletic requisites are often too tough, and they can end up injured and disillusioned with the sport. By observing your body’s imbalances, brought on by the particular movements of skiing, and employing a yoga program to bring your body into a state of equilibrium, you can avert injury and participate in the sport for years to come.” Baron Baptiste, Author and veteran yoga teacher
