Tuesday

6:00 – 7:00 pm, Kickboxing
Cardio-kickboxing: the ultimate cross-training full body workout to meet your every need. This no contact workout helps you to lose fat and boost your metabolism while simultaneously building and toning muscle. Kickboxing targets your core with every punch by requiring balance and agility. Not only will you improve your stamina, but you’ll receive an opportunity to relieve stress and have fun… while making your friends think you are super hardcore! No boxing experience is required; just make sure to bring closed toe athletic shoes, water, and a great attitude.  Attending the first class is especially useful because we will be going over the correct positions for punches and kicks.

7:00 – 8:00 pm, Stretching with Yoga Elements
The class will be calming yet challenging. We will do different types of stretching to take care of our bodies during the overwhelming school time. Some yoga elements and breathing exercise will be included. This class is for everyone; especially for students who exercise but tend to struggle with stretching, those who want to have a calm self-care time during the week, and those who want to learn more about stretching and their bodies.
Instructor:  Elizabete Romanovska

8:00 – 9:00 pm, Yoga Flow
We’ll start with 5-10 minutes of body weight core exercises to get warmed up, then move into a 45-minute vinyasa flow. This means the beginning will be stretching (sun salutations), followed by a series of strength-building poses, and finally some balancing postures and stretching to finish up. I’ll offer modifications for more/less intense options, so come join us whatever your yoga level!
Instructor:  Millie Varley

Thursday

7:00 – 8:00 pm, Restorative Yoga
Join us for an hour of deep stretch and mindfulness. We’ll work to make space in the body through twists, long holds, and binds to hopefully make space the brain. We’ll keep the lights off for the whole of this practice and take the time to be present in the sensations of stretch.
Instructor:  Millie Varley
