This dynamic Vinyasa power flow class carefully intertwines yoga with a full body sculpting class. Light hand weights, as well as your own body weight are used to help tone, strengthen and sculpt your body, all the while focusing on body awareness and moving with breath. Quiet your mind, strengthen your body and energize your spirit in this unique, fun, and challenging class. All levels are welcome.
Yoga sculpt is a higher-intensity form of yoga, which pushes you to improve your physical endurance and cardiovascular capacity by adding light hand weights or your own body weight to increase the overall intensity of each movement. Expect to integrate light to moderate weights and bands, and move to a focused tempo that will have you burning calories and toning your muscles from start to finish.
45 minutes of invigorating tabata sets on the bike, followed by a 30 min align and stretch piece that will leave you strengthened and lengthened. Tabata sets consist of 20 seconds of HIGHEST output with a 10 second recovery (8x). This is not for beginners, but you can ride a slower pace during drills. This is the fastest ways to improve fitness levels and torch calories!
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.
Focus in this class is to open and release! Make space in your body as you release tension through longer active stretching.
