YOGA 101: classes focus on proper body alignment, muscle engagement and breathing control. They are suitable for any level practitioner (age 16 and up), offering core poses and variations for students of differing abilities. Stretch yourself out, improve your mental focus, and physical balance by attending one of our weekly yoga 101 classes, available now at both gym locations.
AERIAL SILKS 101: Silks 101 combines the aesthetics of aerial silks, along with strength and conditioning training. Because of the unique experience of working on fabric, silks conditioning incorporates continuous core and muscle activation throughout an entire exercise. Instructors show how to safely work out (and then stretch) muscles in shoulders, hips and hands – extremely important areas that many climbers neglect.
