GET MOVING : VINYASA + BARRE
Vinyasa flow classes typically begin with a sun salutation warm-up series, emphasizing the importance of connecting breath with movement. Upper level classes will incorporate more challenging postures such as creative standing balances, arm balancing, inversions and backbends. Barre classes typically begin with a choreographed warm-up incorporating sun salutations and components parts of barre conditioning moves. Each type of class targets the muscles of the upper body, thighs, glutes, back & core to lend an overall sense of integration and stability. Modifications and variations are offered for all postures, so that the intensity and challenge is up to the individual.
