When you add “power” to yoga, it redefines what you might think a yoga class is going to be. In this Power Yoga class, you’re going to be moving from pose to pose every time you breathe. The class will be faster paced, which means it’ll be a balance of cardio, stretching, and working every muscle that’s engaged in our poses. AND we’re doing all of that to an epic playlist of songs. It’s a fun twist on traditional yoga that is going to make you more flexible, stronger, and very relaxed.

Welcome to our first group class in the weight room! This Strength Training class aims to increase strength and improve body composition by focusing on targeting all major muscle groups using free weights, resistance bands, and cables as well as other equipment. Sessions will split targeted muscle groups over 3 separate days during the week and will introduce exercise variations while also encouraging proper lifting technique.  Additional benefits of strength training also include improvements in resting metabolism, bone mineral density, insulin response and resting blood pressure. You’ll leave this class feeling challenged and motivated to be better than you were before so join us as we take group fitness into the weight room as we build confidence and even more strength!

swim logo

In this Swim Fitness class, expect to be in the pool while we work our entire body with an occasional exercise outside the water. This class will be low impact and designed for all levels of swim and fitness ability. You should be comfortable being in the pool, but you do not need to be able to swim laps. I recommend wearing a comfortable swimsuit (or athletic outfit for the pool) and bringing a water bottle and a towel. Goggles and swim shoes are optional and putting your whole head underwater is not required. A fun fact about AquaFitness is you get all the benefits of exercising without all the sweating! AquaFitness is at the pool behind the convocation center- sign in at the desk and go through the locker rooms to get to the pool deck.

All of our Yoga classes are designed to focus on stretching and breathing to ultimately relax and unwind our bodies and minds. Poses and flows are used to strengthen, stretch, and open the body and calm the mind. Yoga encompasses a broad range of practices, and each of our instructors adds their own twist and focus to their Yoga classes but all are open to everyone from any fitness level or experience level.
