Heli-Yoga - Imagine yourself surrounded by nature, peaceful and tranquil. The setting, atop the mountains in a meadow high above what most people never get to see. Your body, moving in a way that extends flexibility and connects each breathe to every movement.
On April 12 Travel Alberta held a virtual Heli-Yoga event in the middle of the Irvine Spectrum Center (mall). They invited the public to join Actress Tricia Helfer,
It was a bit strange to attend a yoga class in the middle of a mall. Kristen has an amazing ability to assess the experience level of the group and guide everyone through each and every move. Her assistance in getting us to tune out the outer world and focus on our body and breathe was flawless. Many times the encircling mall felt non-existent. Every breathe felt intensified along with silence of the mind. The moves were smooth and free flowing. Muscles that once felt tight, were smiling with ease and grace to be stretched in such ways. By the end of the class there was this beautiful stillness amongst the group.
Each participant was given a yoga mat, tote bag, water bottle and t-shirt. One lucky participant won a heli-yoga vacation package to Alberta, courtesy of Travel Alberta (click on the company name to go to their website).
The Heli-Yoga package takes participants on a 30 minute helicopter ride atop the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains. Once there Kristen Stuart instructs a 3 hour hatha yoga class with panoramic views.
