The Beartrap Summer Festival is pleased to welcome the return of yoga to the meadow.

And why not? The place practically screams yoga with all of its beauty, tranquility, and nature surrounding it on all sides. That's what gave festival organizer Jana Price the idea for it in the first place.

"It just seemed natural to bring something like yoga to this beautiful setting. We knew that it would be popular, and it was one more thing that we could add to the festival to make it even more enjoyable for everyone."

Back for another relaxing round are top instructors Ashley Beckstead and Cheralee Jones. Both look forward to presenting yoga in its intended environment.

"Yoga poses were designed from positions in the Tree Pose, based on the structure of a tree," Ashley explained. "It's nice to be able to practice it outdoors, in new surroundings with a different perspective."

It's also a great opportunity for Ashley to introduce a different segment of our community to this wonderful form of stretching, relaxation, and rejuvenation that's really been catching on here over the years.

"I get a chance to teach more people about yoga and the options they have in Casper. The festival is a great way to introduce it, and it's designed to be enjoyed by both beginners and experts." One of her favorite things about leading yoga at Beartrap is how people will "just hop in!"

The session schedule will be the same for both days, Saturday, August 4th and Sunday, August 5th, and will include two fun kids sessions where the young ones strike animal poses and learn other cool moves.

First adult session - 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

Kids session - 12:00 noon to 12:45 p.m.

Second adult session - 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Yoga takes place at the southern end of the meadow, with the kids yoga near the children's activity area. Just look for the signs, and join us for a once in a lifetime experience at the Beartrap Summer Festival 2012.
