(Provided by Denver Arts & Venues) Whenever Katy Rowe leads a sold-out session of Yoga on the Rocks at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, she has to work extra hard to focus on the contortions and commands she is making because of the distractions present in that spectacular setting.

There are those massive red sandstone formations that have enchanted concert-goers and tourists for generations, of course, but also as many as 2,500 people following her lead “I am really aware mostly of the students, because you say ‘right leg up,’ and you see 2,500 right legs go up,” said Rowe, a teacher for The River yoga in downtown Denver who will lead this year’s first session of Yoga on the Rocks on June 8 “That in itself is visually stunning and really powerful When I’ve taught I’ve actually taught to the sky and to the rocks so that kind of pulls me back in, if I do float away a little bit” If you go Yoga on the Rocks will be held at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on eight Saturdays, June 8-June 29 and July 20-Aug 10, from 7 to 8 am Barre on the Rocks will be held July 13 Participants should bring water and a yoga mat Season passes and four-packs are sold out SnowShape classes will be held four consecutive Saturdays, Sept 21-Oct 12

Single-session tickets are available at redrocksonline.

There are other distractions, though Sometimes there is the faint odor of spilled beer from the night before and other leftover aromas One time, another teacher leading a class said, “It smells like hot dogs in here,” and the comment was picked up by the microphone she was wearing “She accidentally said it out loud in front of 2,500 people,” Rowe said “It’s just part of the deal, right? Red Rocks wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t smell like beer and hot dogs” Created in 2013, Yoga on the Rocks takes over the world-famous music venue eight Saturdays in June, July and August For the second time this summer, there also will be one session of Barre on the Rocks (July 13) In the fall, Red Rocks will inaugurate a new class, SnowShape, for skiers and snowboarders getting fit for the winter RELATED: Is Red Rocks the world’s most beautiful workout venue?
