MIND/BODY CLASSES

Vinyasa Flow: Vinyasa (translates to “flowing with breath”) is a dynamic style of Hatha yoga
which joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal
rhythm for the practice. Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat in the body with creative
sequences involving sun salutations, standing and seated postures, back bending, arm
balancing, and a strong focus on the power of breath awareness. Flow yoga classes tend to be
more vigorous and aerobic, and classes can have a variety of music and themes. All levels

Anusara Yoga: Anusara means “flowing with grace,” “going with the flow,” “following your
heart,” and this practice focuses on experiencing bliss and joy in your yoga practice and your
daily life. Anusara emphasizes the Universal Principles of Alignment as the focal point of its
practice, which underlies all of the physical asanas. These principles are important in the
practice of yoga as they give you guidelines on how to align your body, heart, and mind in a
way that provides integration, fostering optimal circulation, strength, good health, and
wellbeing. Anusara follows a Vinyasa Flow style, holding some (key) poses for a longer time
while connecting you to your breath as a guide in your asana practice. Vinyasa flow warms up
the body and links the focus of the class to the physical expression. Holding the poses allows
for more explanation of the key alignment principle and the linking of the spiritual intention to
your body. The class ends with meditation and relaxation. All levels

allow the full facilitation of the stretching of the fascia and joint tissue. All levels

into a state of harmony and balance. Like all the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYFLOW™
class is released every three months with new music and choreography. All levels

Chair Yoga: A gentle yoga class that is practiced sitting in a chair or standing using a chair for
support. Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be
done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot
stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions. Many of
the basic body mechanics of the individual postures are retained, no matter the stance of the
practitioner. While seated on chairs, students can do versions of twists, hip stretches, forward
bends, and mild backbends. In addition to a good stretch, chair yoga participants can also
enjoy other health benefits of yoga, including improved muscle tone, better breathing habits,
reduction of stress, better sleep, and a sense of well-being. All levels

have pedals that are average-sized and a seat and handlebars, much like a regular bike. These
bikes are submerged in about 3-4 feet of water, and the rider pedals against the water. Aqua
cycling is a challenging cardio and strength workout that is great for many types of exercises,
including those with mobility issues or those recovering from an injury. The water’s buoyancy
helps to provide support to working muscles and joints, and the moisture in the pool helps to
draw heat away from the body and regulate body temperature. Fee applies $10/class for
members, $20/class for non-members. All levels
