We emphasize deep breathing and physical postures that can create a cardio workout all the while utilizing yoga moves and mindset. We don’t leave any body part out especially the core. This class is geared toward people who enjoy a physical challenge and like to explore the body’s capacity for strength. Alignment cues and hands-on assists are woven in to safely guide students through challenging but accessible poses to build strength and flexibility.
