Squaw Valley’s Wanderlust Yoga Studio is bringing back weekly Yoga Squaw’d community classes this winter.

Classes will be held by a different instructor each week and will feature music spun by a DJ. Classes have a requested donation of $5 with all proceeds benefiting the High Fives Foundation. The community yoga classes will be held 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday through April 30 in the Wanderlust Yoga Studio, located in The Village at Squaw Valley.

“We are thrilled with this opportunity to help the community get healthy while supporting a local nonprofit,” said Jamie Ebert, manager of the Wanderlust Yoga Studio. “Because the community classes will continue throughout the entire ski season, we are striving to have a significant impact in helping The High Fives Foundation further their great work in the community.”

The High Fives Foundation is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for athletes who have experienced a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in winter action sports. To date, the organization has helped 51 athletes since its inception in 2009.

The suggested donation to participate in the community yoga class is $5, but participants can donate more if desired.
