Ambient Flow + Stretch
This class is taught by:
Bri loves to be on both sides of the hall teaching both cycle and yoga! Her philosophy is that exercise should be something you look forward to everyday and brings that energy, and a smile, into the room.
She doesn't want you to come in and zone out during a workout, instead she wants you to hit that climb with just a little more resistance than last time or hold a plank and smile at yourself for pushing right into the challenge without a second thought. It's not enough to just be physically fit as mental strength is just as important. While she is going to push you outside of your comfort zone sometimes, Bri wants it to be an active choice and to be a time of exploration into how strong you truly are.
"Showing up is the hardest part" is a philosophy she truly stands by, and while she loves to see you make progress, being connected to your breath and honoring your body is a lesson she incorporates into every class. Just like you need to actively choose to challenge yourself, it's important to know when to just sit back in child's pose and breathe.
Challenges, laughter, and being welcoming to all levels is guaranteed.
Torn between a heart-pounding power flow and being able to chill in pigeon or child's pose for a few minutes? This class is for you and is set to ambient soundscapes that pump you up and then help you relax. The first 25-30 minutes of class is devoted to yoga based workout moves with a twist. We might go from chair into pistol squats or from a side lunge into skaters to get your workout in, your body moving, and with a focus on really building strength. Once all that hard work is done, the music slows and the lights go down as we finish the class doing yin yoga. Most postures are on the mat and are held from 2-5 minutes with blocks and straps for support as we ease into the stretches and into a calmer state of mind. Get the best of both worlds in this class.
