Oakley Progression Sessions – Loon Mountain

Oakley’s Progression Sessions hit their last stop this past weekend at Loon Mountain.  Ending where it all started, the Loon group of riders, coaches and staff park ended the four stop all-girls snowboard camp with a bang.  I felt so lucky to be apart of this amazing experience, and thanks to Loon, Jenny Earnshaw, Kirsten Beninato, and the coaches: Mary Walsh, Marie-France Roy, Lauren Perkins, Gretchen Bleiler, Ellery Hollingsworth, Christine Savage, Chanelle Sladics, Silvia Mittermüller, and Kristi Leskinen.

Morning yoga with 80 girls!  They rocked it and we had so much fun.

Head Coach Mary Walsh and her crew of shredders

The park set up was so much fun with the soft snow, and coach Lauren Perkins showing the girls the skills.

With Spring riding conditions, we even had a snowcone machine! ZICO coconut water snowcones anyone?

Oyster shots with Coach Ellery Hollingsworth..love her!

Final dinner with coaches and crew!  Wish that this pictures could have turned out better, but thanks to each and every one of you for such an amazing event.

Cheers to next year!

California Yoga Sport’s

Friday List

1. Check out Oakley Women’s Brands newest Spring 2012 Swimsuit line! Get excited about the warm weather just a few (fingers crossed) months away & start picking out your activewear suits to hit the surf with!

2. Make an Oh She Glows Kale Salad, Cilantro Lime Quinoa Salad, or one of our other delicious recipes we’ve posted about before!

3. Go on a hike! This weekend we’re heading to Point Reyes to hike Alamere Falls! Get back in touch with nature.. and since its chilly outside remember to wear layers!!!

4. Shop at the Farmers Market. Get out of your routine of shopping down an aisle & hit up the fresh farmers & vendors at your local farmers market.

5. Listen to ‘GotyePandora Radio Station. Will definitely be a nice change of pace from your usual musical tastes.

6. Read the Newspaper. Step away from the computer & grab that traditional pile of journalism at your local coffee shop & indulge in some black & white reading.

7. Write down your goals. Yes, we all have laundry lists in our heads, but the act of writing it down puts a new pressure on considering your goals & how you will achieve them. Come up with an action plan to help get started & maintain the struggle towards your goals when the going gets tough. You can skip figuring out the exit strategy because you won’t need it 😉

8. Do the one exercise you least enjoy. Whether you dislike running & prefer to sit on a bike for hours, get off the saddle & go for a run. Resisting the urge to go to your comfort zone in training is the best way to jazz up and spike your training performance. Don’t ask questions, don’t talk yourself out of it, just do the one thing you want to do the least.

9. Don’t watch the clock. Allow your weekend to be schedule free as possible. Your work week can be busy & planned out, but give your mind & body a break from following a schedule for two full days.

10. Indulge in some Spring Cleaning. Yes, its only February, but who doesn’t like getting a jump start on things. Clean out that closet of old sneakers, mix matched socks, and collect all of those old magazines that have been piling up on your coffee table. Keep your personal space and home clutter free allowing more space for your mind to focus on other important things such as your training schedule, personal life, or taxes-ahhh!! Grab the broom & get to it!

Enjoy your healthy & active weekend! #TGIF
