Group Cycle

This cardiovascular class will get your heart pumping while cycling on indoor stationary bikes using drills, imagery, and heart-pumping music.  Cycling is a great workout that people of all fitness levels can enjoy.

Through hard work and power, you'll see results in no time!

A high intensity workout designed to challenge your body in block intervals (using just your body weight)!  The program incorporates ab and core training techniques, as well as strength, power, and resistance moves to help sculpt and tone the ultimate physique.  You will notice an 'insane' difference!

Vinyasa Flow

In this class we will connect movement and breath, starting off with gentle opening sequences and then moving into a more rhythmic practice.  Vinyasa flow is an ebb and flow of building energy and calming the mind and body, allowing each to make the practice what he/she needs: a fitness-based practice, or an outlet in a busy day to clear the mind and relax.  Beginners and experienced Yogis will benefit from this invigorating practice that will offer both challenges and relaxation.
