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.

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.
