WHAT TO DO IN MINDEN

It’s best to stay active whenever you can for optimal health – and if you know where to look, it isn’t hard to do around Minden.

  • Genoa Lakes Golf Club. Here, there are two unique golf courses situated two miles apart. You can play one or both – the Ranch Course with its stunning views of the Carson Valley or the Lakes Course featuring amazing wildlife and, unsurprisingly, gorgeous lakes.   
  • Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center. If golf isn’t your thing, maybe you would enjoy horseback riding more. At the Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center, you can bring the kids and take part in a fun riding lesson – or just opt for a short pony ride for your child. Either way, you’ll get sunshine and fresh air and perhaps even try something new. ” 
  • Van Sickle Bi-State Park. This park is extremely accessible via a short walk from the trailhead. There are trails here for a range of fitness levels, all featuring incredible views of the largest alpine lake in North America. You’ll see hikers, bikers, equestrians and more out enjoying the park.  

These are just a few ideas to get you started – as long as you keep moving, there are lots of things to see and do in the area.

POWER YOGA

Kaia Yoga combines mind and body with a power yoga and core-strengthening weekly workout with Pilates-style techniques. We focus on balance, strength, and cardiovascular fitness through stretching, strength training and dynamic movement to improve overall fitness levels.

By creating long, lean muscles, Yoga promotes improved coordination, greater flexibility and a fuller range of motion, with a strong body that’s less prone to injury. Yoga keeps the mind centered and reduces stress through positive thoughts and a sense of mindfulness, which also inspires mental strength and confidence.

Yin Yoga, or restorative yoga, is a quiet contemplative practice. It targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body. Poses are held for 1 minute or more and transitions between poses are gentle and slow. This class is an excellent compliment to our other classes, provides dedicated stretching, and is known to reduce stress and anxiety.
