If you listen to local music therapist Susan Hess, the ideal sounds to accompany yoga are deep toning and chanting that evoke earth, water, fire, air and space. Want to know more? Come to today's One Day, One Yoga program sponsored by Yoga Teachers of Colorado at New Hope Baptist Church, 3701 Colorado Boulevard. The workshop, meant for masters and newbies alike, includes mat time and instruction, a free vegetarian lunch, a panel discussion on "Yoga in Colorado, Past and Future" and, of course, the sounds of yoga. "We designed the conference to bring together not only yoga teachers, but the community to celebrate yoga in Colorado in all of its forms," says Michelle Corriell, who organized the event.
Enthusiasts can go for a half day ($65) or a full ($100), with proceeds going toward Project Pave, a group that promotes alternatives to youth violence. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. For more, visit www.ytoc.org. or call Michelle at 303-388-8501.
