Join Foothills Nature Conservancy for a community wellness celebration at beautiful Camp Lake James 1780 for a family-friendly outdoor yoga class led by Annaliese Koltermann, RYT500, Certified Kripalu Instructor. Following yoga there will be an optional hike on the camp’s trails as we celebrate community and wellness.

Prana or Breath is a Necessary Part of Training

After a great warmup, Kevin Gauthier (right) leads trail runners on the Mills Creek Trail at Lake James State Park. Afterwards, runners enjoy a shaded yoga session featuring breath work and visualization techniques meant to raise the energy of runners up and off the feet, knees, and hips and INTO their natural surroundings.

Prana, or vital life force, is the Sanskrit word for the energy that permeates everything in the universe. A runner can better harness his (or her!) breath in ways that shift awareness within by withdrawing the prana into the spine and brain, where he then experiences higher levels of consciousness. When translated to running, prana consciousness delivers lift, tone, direction, and power.
