This is our signature barre class which has a moderate pace, but clients will definitely feel the burn of their muscles strengthening and toning. Instructors will break down the pose in detail and provide level changing options so that everyone from the barre beginner to the more experienced “barre bee” will love this class! And all of our instructors choreograph their own routines and use their own music. No cookie cutter classes with repetitive music here!! You will never take the same class twice!
These barre classes offer fast paced, heart rate raising movements including some plyometrics. There are also more advanced positions to increase burn and overall tone of the body.
WARNING: You will sweat!
Yoga Fundamentals - We believe that all students can benefits from a fundamentals class and that the best way to build an authentic, strong and safe yoga practice is to begin with the basics and to always keep a beginner's mind. It is the alignment of the body in our asanas (poses) that keep us safe and allow us to achieve and enjoy the intended benefits of the pose. Without proper alignment there is risk of discomfort, frustration and even injury. Most students taking our vinyasa classes have never taken an introductory level class. Many have learned alignment from watching other students or best guessing it. As much as our teachers try to watch everyone in class, sometimes we are unable to give the detailed attention needed to every student. This is why we offer beginner level classes as an option for ALL yogis. Our fundamentals classes move slowly and include detailed instruction on alignment as well as gentle hands-on assists. They are a wonderful way to "re-learn" some of the basic poses and allow you to really focus on what is happening with your body and breath. You might be surprised to learn that you've been misaligned in many of your poses and this is the chance to correct those issues before they cause harm. For beginner's, this class is the very best way to begin a yoga practice. Starting with the basics allows you to build the strength, flexibility and knowledge needed to move forward with your practice safely and organically. Nothing is more frustrating than taking a class and being completely unfamiliar with what's going on. In addition to the alignment of the poses we discuss yoga etiquette and learn basic yoga breathing and meditation techniques.
