Please join The Athletic Club at The Westin on Wednesday, Dec. 21st for a special FREE yoga class and candlelit ceremony celebrating the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice.

The Studio Anjali Winter Solstice Celebration will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 21st at 6:30 p.m.

Yoga Lead Suzanne Oliver will offer an Asana practice, contemplative meditation and Pranayama (breath exercise), followed by the Bringing in the Light ceremony, a candle lit time for reflection and blessings of renewal for ourselves, the community and the planet. The entire program is free; guests are encouraged to bring a candle.

The celebration will also include the blessing of the new Studio Anjali yoga space and will be followed by complimentary hot cider around The Westin Riverfront's fire pit. The Athletic Club at The Westin is wrapping up a $1 million renovation and expansion of its fitness center, including 4,000 square feet of new exercise studio space.

“What better time than the start of the solar year to celebrate the cycle of nature and reaffirm the continuation of life?” said Yoga Lead Suzanne Oliver. “As we light our candle in celebration of the growing sun light, we take this time to honor and remember that life is good.”

Advance registration is not required. For more information on the Athletic Club at The Westin, which is currently accepting new members, please call 970-790-2051 or visit www.athleticclubwestin.com.
