Power Yoga

This dynamic practice moves at a quicker pace than Yoga Flow, so that a strong understanding of the link between breath and movement becomes essential. This routine can increase muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as reduce stress. Students are welcome to take breaks between poses. This class welcomes more intermediate and advanced students of Yoga.

Yoga Sculpt

Sculpt by definition is to create and shape by carving. In this class we use weights, holds, and poses throughout to increase strength, create definition, and tone your body as you move through a cardio-intensive Vinyasa Flow. Consider adding Sculpt Yoga three times a week to your normal routine to burn fat and aid weight loss. This class is not recommended for those with injuries.

Barre

Barre is a full body workout that fuses dance, Pilates and sculpting exercises at the ballet barre to give you a chiseled body – and fast! By using a series of isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches, we will sculpt the body proportionally so that all body parts are equally challenged. This total body workout serves to strengthen, lengthen, and stretch the body from top to bottom, from inside out. The end result is a long and lean physique… without added bulk.

Total Body Sculpt

Blending the best of everything, you can expect to get some HITT,  Mat Pilates and Yoga Sculpt in this class. With this Total Body Workout, you'll lean and tone up with every move! This class is designed for people whose primary concerns are boosting overall cardiovascular fitness, endurance, and fat loss, without losing the muscle mass they already have. Workouts will use dumbells, BOSU, plyometrics and other various body weight exercises to boost your metabolism to its max. HIIT is a very efficient way of challenging your body more than what it is used to - resulting in muscle building and strengthening. All fitness levels are welcome to join this challenging yet fun and satisfying class!
