Aspen is the place to be for yoga this weekend.

The Aspen Yoga Society, the Shakti Foundation and Off the Mat Into the World will play host to the inaugural Yoga in Action Day in partnership with AREDAY (American Renewable Energy Day). Organizers expect more than 10 yoga teachers and 200 practitioners to take part in a free, community yoga gathering from 9-11 a.m. Saturday in Paepcke Park. The day will honor Scott Neeson, a yoga activist and founder of the Cambodian Children’s Fund.

And from 6-8:30 p.m. Sunday, Aspen Yoga Society and the Shakti Foundation, in partnership with Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, will present Connect to Cambodia at ACES Hallam Lake campus. A $20 suggested donation goes directly to help the Cambodian Rural Development Team (via Stand Up for Rivers), the Cambodian Children’s Fund and ACES.

Participating studios/teachers include many Roaring Fork Valley yoga instructors – such as Aaron King, Evan Sorka, Kate Giampapa and Amanda Dykann, Bel and Emily Carpenter, Gina Murdock and the teachers of the Aspen Yoga Society, and Muffy and Megan DiSabatino of the Shakti Foundation – who will lead students of all levels.
