Class Descriptions:

Cardio Crunch

Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, this low impact class incorporates a comprehensive warm up, cardio set, conditioning, and stretching.  You’re the boss of your intensity level.  Instructor will provide options for equipment if you don't have weights at home.  Have a water bottle and a towel handy.  You will sweat!

Tone, Strengthen, & Stretch

The name says it all for this class that uses body weight, hand weights, bands, and resistance techniques for a workout that tones and strengthens.  For those with no equipment participating via Zoom, instructors will provide suggestions for equipment that you may have in your home, such as water bottles.  Tone and strengthen, then don’t forget the stretching!  

Hatha (Gentle) Yoga

If you need to stretch, strengthen, relax, and smile, you should try Gentle Yoga.  This alignment-based yoga will help to  increase essential mobility, balance, and foundational strength.  The class features slow stretches and focus work on proper alignment suitable for all fitness levels with the instructor making adjustments to suit each participant’s ability.  

Vinyasa (Power) Yoga

A rigorous, empowering yoga flow for the practitioner who desires a mindful challenge. Various sequences of poses linked together in the “Vinyasa” tradition; flowing from one to the next while focusing on breath. A typical class includes 20 minutes of sun salutation variations, 20 minutes of muscle strengthening through holding standing poses, 20 minutes of seated stretching including back bending, and hip openers.  This class is appropriate for all levels.   Bring your own mat.
