CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

OUR INSTRUCTORS ARE HIGHLY TRAINED TO TEACH ALL LEVELS AND NEEDS

YOGA

Vinyasa Flow
Moderate/High Intensity | Open Level
Vinyasa means a specific sequence of breath-synchronized movements used to transition between sustained postures. This dynamic form of yoga focuses on flowing between postures while maintaining deep, rhythmic breathing, to help achieve strength, increase endurance, release tension, and create more flexibility in the entire body. All levels are welcome to join this fun, flowing class in which each person can work at their own pace, following the teacher’s verbal and hands-on guidance. Options are provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.
Restorative
Low Intensity | Open Level

A gentle class designed to help you relax deeply and heal the effects of physical and mental stresses. Renew yourself through a combination of nurturing physical postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation.  In this class you’ll be led through a gentle flow of movement before settling in to more deeply relaxing, passive postures supported by various combinations of pillows, blankets and more.  This therapeutic class will soothe the body and quiet the mind though the activation of the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system to create a deeply effective healing process within you.

Slow Flow
Low/Moderate Intensity | Open Level

This slow-paced, vinyasa style class melts away stress and tension in your body as you flow through poses that cultivate focus, while increasing your strength and flexibility. This safe space allows students from beginners to advanced to deepen the breath, tap into inner strength, and become more aware of the relationship between the mind and body.  Special attention is placed on foundational principles of postural alignment & skillful breathing. Great for beginners or those wanting to take it a slow and easy.

 

BARRE

Barre Sculpt
High Intensity | Open Level
This high intensity, booty-sculpting blend of ballet barre movements combined with Pilates and yoga make for a fun and challenging way to cultivate and tone long, lean muscles.  The smaller, targeted movements of barre can bring a new level of awareness to the body as they activate the often-underused deep, core stabilizer muscles.  Be prepared for defining and sculpting arm exercises, intense thigh and seat sequences, waist-cinching ab moves, and yogic stretches.  The best part: Anyone no matter your age, flexibility or fitness level can hit the bar and achieve results.  It never gets easier; you’ll just get stronger.  
 

PILATES

Pilates
High Intensity | Open Level
Our Pilates mat-based workout is a low impact yet challenging all-levels class designed to help participants develop leaner, longer looking muscles, establish core strength and stability, correct bad posture and improve mind-body awareness. Classes incorporate the key principles of Pilates, weaving/blending exercise variations and using props to add resistance and variety.
