Class Information

Barre Classes -
Barre is a full body workout that fuses elements of ballet, pilates, sports conditioning and stretching for a unique and fun experience. The moves are low impact but high intensity and are followed immediately by deep stretching. Classes begin with a warm up focusing on postural strength and alignment, followed by a series of upper body exercises using light weights. The ballet barre is used to sculpt the lower body and abs. This class will evenly sculpt and quickly transform the entire body, resulting in a toned, trim physique.


Power Yoga -This is a vigorous vinyasa-style yoga practice scaled down to meet your busy schedule. Strong emphasis on strength and flexibility, class flows from one pose to the next for an amazing work out and detox. Bring water and a towel! Class is 45 minutes beginning on May 6th.
 

LEVEL 1 - Basics - This class places focus on the proper execution of postures (asanas), breathing (pranayama), and principles essential to a strong yoga practice. Level 1 - Basics is designed to provide a strong foundation and is appropriate for brand new students or experienced students wishing to strengthen the foundation of their practice.

 

Community Yoga Class - Studio A offers Vinyasa Style Yoga and classes are suitable for all levels, from the experienced yogi to the beginner! This is a pay-what-you-want yoga class.
