Yinyasa Yoga is movement synchronized with breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale. This class is designed to adapt to all body types, ages, fitness levels, and interests.

Come take a deep breath, strengthen your mind, body and spirit while discovering a healthier you! "You don't have to master asanas to feel the peaceful connection to your inner self," said Stephen Cope.

If you're in it to win it, you need obstacle-specific training. Obstacle races test you in ways you can't predict, but this program will help prepare you for anything! Training for an obstacle course race involves more than just running. Many obstacles require participants to have the upper-body strength to lift their own body weight, the coordination to climb over walls and the flexibility to low-crawl through tunnels or under barbed wire. In this 10-week comprehensive training program you will receive a five day a week workout program, including two grueling live workouts run by our staff of certified personal trainers, and an additional three workouts to be completed on your own each week. The live classes will help you embody the teamwork necessary to complete many obstacle races by incorporating many partner drills and exercises. Get started, stay accountable and be ready to compete in a local mud run in late April.
