Class Descriptions

Vinyasa Yoga

Match movement and breath in this flow class intelligently sequenced to open, stretch, strengthen and explore how your body moves, holds onto energy and releases tension. Work through the 5 elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space to experience a practice deeply rooted in yoga philosophy with care for the body and expansion for the mind. Invigorating, sometimes challenging, variations are offered to advance your practice. Modifications are available to take it down a notch or nurse an injury. Leave the mat feeling refreshed and restored, rather than depleted. This is a beginner to advanced level class.

Barre
Barre is a combination of ballet, yoga and Pilates. Small controlled movements, isometric holds and high repetitions work to sculpt long, lean muscles. With focus on accessory muscles to help support the larger muscle groups, you will find increased balance, strength and stability. This class is performed at a ballet barre, either barefoot or with barre socks for added grip. Props include 2-5 pound dumbbells, resistance bands, gliders and Pilates balls. This is a beginner to advanced level class with modifications to make it easier and variations to make it more challenging. Barre is a low-to-no impact workout.

Tabata

Developed by Izumi Tabata, PhD, in Japan for the Olympic speed skating team, Tabata consists of  body weight exercises (think squats, lunges, push ups, mountain climbers, burpees) at high intensity intervals pushing above your lactate threshold for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of recovery. 20′ work + 10′ rest x 8  = 1 Tabata Round. Make aerobic gains and increase anaerobic capacity and BMR (basal metabolic rate) to burn calories long after this HIIT class. This is a beginner to advanced level class. Beginners are of course welcome- feel free to add more rest or cut down on rounds you first few Tabata workouts. You’ll advance in no time!


Primal

Get back to your roots. Create more body awareness through free form movement. You started moving in this world low to the ground- crawling by moving opposite hand, opposite foot, and rotating your hips. Once you hit the ground walking and running, most of your movement patterns reduced to one plane of movement: the sagittal plane, which is movement forward and backward. In Primal, we will work all three planes of motion: sagittal (forward/backward), frontal (lateral movements) and transverse (rotation). Many of the movements in Primal are patterned after movements you’ll find in nature. Expect to mimic the movement of bears, gorillas, cranes, frogs, ducks, chameleons, trees, creeks and more. After about 3 classes, you’ll be surprised how much the range of motion in your body increases. The HIIT component of this class loads the primal movement patterns with intensity and repetition to etch the movement into your new natural flow. Through better movement, you’ll reduce your risk of injury and feel the benefit in everyday activities like squatting down to pick something up from the ground, reaching out to grab something and easily catching yourself when you fall out of balance. This is an intermediate to advanced level class.


Fine Tune

This is the perfect start to the day to ease into movement with stretching, balance training and mobility at the core. Learn how the body moves fluidly with 30 minutes of fine tune stretching, range of motion and mobility moves and techniques. Then, transition into 30 minutes of strength training and incorporating mobility picked up from the first part of class. You’ll come out of this class feeling more freedom of movement in the body; ready to take your ninja-like moves into your everyday life. Beginner to advanced level class.


Restore

Take your workouts to the next level by properly tending to the body through restorative practices. In Restore, you’ll fully support the body with props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets to calm the nervous system. Release blocked energy with a series of guided postures. Move into work with foam rollers, tennis balls, straps and other props to release and transform stuck energy patterns in the body to keep the flow of chi, or life force, flowing freely. This is a beginner to advanced level class.

Mobilize

We are integrating the best of stability and mobility training to create a class called Mobilize. Stabilize by learning to engage your core and bring some softness to the joints. Mobilize by bringing it all together moving your joints through full range of motion. Incorporate stretching to gain flexibility. This is a beginner to intermediate level class.

Punch

Grab a pair of boxing gloves, sparring mitts and a partner for this fun high intensity circuit style class. Use a weighted jump rope to further tone the arms or use an imaginary jump rope and skip to the beat. Options to modify or amplify! This is a beginner to advanced level class.
