If you would like to do some yoga at Iguana Lodge – feel free to enjoy our fab facilities – or practice with Lauren, our on-site yogini.
Lauren leads you in her practice which consists of playful, athletic vinyasa which she enjoys envisioning currently as somewhat tai-chi-esque – moving carefully, thoughtfully, choicely aligned; flowing through the cosmic goo (viscosity similar to Tupelo honey – stretching among other things, connective tissue). Hah! (She has a lot of time on her hands.) No experience required; inspired by Divine Movement, and Shiva Rae, Duncan Wong, Simon Park, Cameron Shayne of Budokan, Tracy Mohr, Kim Crotty, Sabina Stahl, Amy Sullivan “Sully” – “Miss March” Yoga Journal, 2013), Emily Phillips, Matt Giordano, Marco Rojas, Kenny Graham, Michelle Marchildon, Julie Giordano, etc, etc, etc. Namaste! (Or as Kenny likes to say, “Pura Vida!”) .
Lauren’s class is complimentary and generally offered a few times a week. The class can vary in length from 30 to 60 minutes, depending upon Lauren’s whim and capricious schedule.
Iguana Lodge also offers classes for a fee that can be arranged around your schedule, employing one of several other yoga teachers in the area. Some people find Lauren’s class not to their liking, because it is quite athletic with a lot of arm balances and tricky moves. So, again, we can arrange another teacher for you for a fee – no problema.
If free yoga is key to your stay, please double check that the yogini-in-residence plans to be around. Keep in mind that sometimes things come up – and even though she planned to be around, now she isn’t. (Lauren is often available, but once in awhile she finds herself in some exotic corner of the world sampling gelato or pilfering sapphires.)
Meanwhile, we also host marvelous yoga retreats with famous and infamous yogic masters. Often yoga is available on a daily basis to Iguana Lodge guests with the retreats.
