Experience Yoga like never before on a SUP in a Crater with Park City Yoga Adventures

March 16, 2021 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

There is no denying the feel-good factor of water. The wild frothy ocean, swimming in lakes and rivers, the first dips of summer, soaking in a hot spring or hot tub. Even hot showers on cold days and vice versa. It’s a surge of adrenaline, balm for the soul, and the feeling of absolute calm and freedom. So when you put yoga and water together you get quite a healing and relaxing combination. 

Park City offers Creative Ways to Dine Outside in the Winter

February 5, 2021 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

Over the summer dining outside became a true staple with more restaurants creating an abundance of outdoor spaces for diners to enjoy meals. While winter does pose some challenges for dining outside, restaurants have come up with unique and creative ways for restaurant-goers to not only feel safe but also have a special dining experience, after what may be months of not dining out. Dining in alpenglobes, igloos, yurts, and other inventive spaces have become the trendy thing to do this winter to create captivating atmospheres, AND I am here for it! If there’s one thing the pandemic has done, it’s made going out to dinner a special occasion once again, and with the addition of these fun and inviting winter dining options, the outdoor patio has been elevated as the go-to place to sit and enjoy a meal. Below I’ve highlighted a number of dining options in Park City that have embraced these alternative dining options. 

Defy gravity and try Yoga in Silks with Park City Yoga Adventures

January 19, 2021 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

I was recently looking for a way to decompress from all of the stressful events in 2020 and the hectic holiday season when I came across Park City Yoga Adventure’s (PCYA) Snowshoe + Yoga in Silks experience. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with yoga as I truly enjoy the benefits of yoga, mindfully moving my body, stretching, slowing down, but my ADHD will usually kick in and won’t let me just sit and relax. Yoga … in aerial silks, however, really piqued my interest as I thought it must have a playful and fun element to it.
