Class Descriptions

Yoga: Each class will open with brief meditation & pranayama, followed by gentle asana toward an accessible apex pose (such as vrkasana, natarajasana, warrior 2) that will energetically benefit faculty and staff, providing them with focus & prana to get through the rest of their day. Class will close in a 5 minute restful savasana including guided visualizations to help achieve deep tissue relaxation.

Muscle Pump: A great way to define, sculpt and build lean muscle. Focuses on intense isolation exercises with free weights and resistance, ending with abs. All-Levels.

Cardio and Tone: For a combo class that’ll leave you feeling stronger with a boost of endorphins, look no further than our fast-paced, but incredibly fun Cardio and Tone. Large movements combined with fast paced exercises make for one sweaty, intense workout! Cardio and Tone is the perfect workout for anyone looking for cardio with primarily low impact movements. You won’t want to miss this one.
