I am currently offering Shimmy Chic Fitness Classes, Kripalu Yoga, Evening Yoga, and Xen Strength classes.

 

Shimmy Chic

Shimmy into shape with this belly dance fitness class. This cardio dance class offers a fun and energetic  calorie burning aerobic workout that is high cardio but low impact and easy on the knees. Dance to fast-paced Middle Eastern and modern songs. The class focuses on weight loss, muscle toning, and calorie burning. Also, a great way to drill and practice belly dance moves. New routines are introduced periodically and as you learn actual belly dance combinations, your whole body will receive a great workout. So wear your sweats, a coin belt, and bring your friends. Join us for an exhilarating work out!

 

Xen Strength

Not your everyday yoga class! Xen Strength combines hand weights and functional fitness moves with traditional yoga poses to provide a transformational workout. You’ll build muscle and bone mass to prevent injury, and get flexible in body and mind. Plus, you’ll save time by multi-tasking

 

Kripalu Yoga

After moving through a variety of postures, the class ends with a restorative relaxation. Kripalu yoga isn’t about the perfect pose. It’s about honoring the body wherever the pose takes you and being comfortable in your own body. Involves standing and floor work. Appropriate for all levels.

 

Evening Yoga

What better way to end the day. This class is the perfect way to leave the day’s stress behind and get ready for a relaxing evening. The first half consists of gentle yoga postures to help the body wind down. The second half consists of a guided relaxation session to complete the experience.

 

Morning Yoga Class

What better way to start your day than with a morning yoga class. A bit more energizing, this class incorporates more of a flow and gets you ready to face the day. Appropriate for all levels. Modifications available for all poses. This class will end no later than 7:45 for those of us having to be at work at 8. If you would like to attend but need to slip out a few minutes early, please don’t hesitate to join us.
