I like that the teachers are welcoming, that the classes are challenging, and that there are many class offerings. Andrea, Holly, Emily, Kati, Cheryl, Bree, Katelyn are just some of the wonderful teachers who don't just go through the moves, but actually share a reading, or an insight, or words of acceptance. The practice becomes more uplifting, encouraging, and empowering.
There have been times I thought to change studios when I felt pushed too far and judged for not being able to achieve the full positions. Recently, for the better part of an entire class, the teacher repeated, "You can be comfortable or have courage." An hour of discomfort in trying to meet the teacher's unrealistic physical expectations for my body is not a litmus test of courage. Remember that we all made it to the mat.
I love the community atmosphere of RPY!! I also love the flow of the classes. I can really check into my practice and forget about things that are going on outside of the yoga room. Teachers are awesome, too!!
I love the rules of timeliness posted on the door to the studio.
The reception is knowledgeable and helpful.
The studio space is functional.
The instructor was top notch - Baptiste practice on par. Kady connected with the yogis and assisted appropriately!
The music system was complimentary to the practice.
The only negative for me was the blocks could use a cleaning in between sweaty classes. My block was very smelly.
I really appreciate the free classes you offered to vail resorts employees. I have wanted to come back to yoga for a while but financially at this time it was a luxury not a necessity. So thank you for the free classes
