ABS AND BOOTY

Instructors: Lauren

Sick of doing the same boring crunches and squats? Come to abs and booty for an awesome lower body and core workout! Every class is FUN. The workouts consist of strength sections to grow, and cardio to sculpt. The workouts are HIIT style- High Intensity Interval Training, and always include regressions and progressions.  Every class is motivating and welcoming to every fitness level.


WHOLE BODY HIIT

Instructors: Lauren
We are going to hit every muscle group in this class. The goal is for you to leave fitter than you walked in, through strength, cardio, and mobility. HIIT- High Intensity Interval Training is effective because you can adjust these workouts to your own goals. If you want to focus on strength, then lower the reps and increase the weight/tension. If you want to focus on cardio, then choose lighter weights, go faster, and get more reps in. Come get whole body fit!

YOGA + MEDITATION

Instructors: Anna
This hybrid class incorporates the physical practices of yoga with the stillness practices of different meditation traditions.  The first 30 minutes of class will be a mindful movement yoga flow.  This will help to ground and center students in their bodies and help them to work through energetic and tension-based blockages.  The following 30 minutes of class will support students in meditation exploration.  Each class will be a different style of guided meditation, based on the objectives of the students that day.
