Aerial yoga on the beach in North Lake Tahoe

North Lake Tahoe is the perfect spot to use your body’s strength and endurance to exercise some sporting fun this summer.

Aerial silks, one of the newer human-powered sports in the region, now has a new home in North Tahoe — Tahoe Flow Arts Studio in Tahoe Vista. Think Cirque du Soleil-style yoga, acrobatics, and dance all complied into an awesome and creative workout. The heights are exhilarating, the silks are strong and graceful, and the core workout is unparalleled.

Tahoe Flow Arts Studio opened its doors last fall to clients looking for a core workout inspired by play and dance. Owner Kelly Smiley offers beginner to advanced classes in aerial fabrics, flow arts, and yoga. Flow artistry classes vary from hula hooping, hip-hop, and juggling, where centering the mind and uplifting the spirit is at the forefront of each activity.

For those looking to expand their physical, mental, and spiritual practices, Tahoe Flow Arts Studio offers an array of yoga classes, from Hatha and Core Fusion to Vinyasa Flow.

In summer months, a variety of workshops and classes take place both inside and outside of the studio, because there is literally no better place to find your balance than right next to Lake Tahoe.

Like yoga and looking to really spice up your summer sporting activity calendar? Enter: SUP yoga classes in Tahoe City. Mountain Lotus Yoga & Massage has fused stand-up-paddleboarding and yoga, and the hybridization is sweeping through Lake Tahoe. Instead of rolling out the yoga mat in an indoor studio, yogis are taking their practice to the waters, finding that balancing on paddleboards makes yoga more challenging and more rewarding.

Beginning SUP yogis even find it easy to turn it into a dual sport activity, where a difficult yoga pose one minute effortlessly transitions into an unplanned swim in the waters of North Lake Tahoe the next. In other words, falling means you’re just taking a dip!

Other human-powered sports opportunities include mountain biking, road biking, paddleboarding, rafting and hiking. Summer is the high season for human-powered sports, whether it is flying through the mountain air on a silk strand, finding inner and physical balance on a paddleboard or simply hiking one of North Tahoe’s beautiful trails.
