Class Descriptions

Level 1

Yoga at The Fitness Center

Gentle Yoga - This class uses Yoga postures from a variety of yoga styles, synchronized with mindful breathing to facilitate a strong, flexible body and calm, centered mind. This is a gentler, slower paced class than powerflow yoga.

Gentle Stretch - Gentle stretch is a great option for those who want to relax, de-stress, improve their circulation and joint range of motion and become more flexible without stress or strain. It combines elements of sports stretching and yoga and is appropriate for most beginners.

Chi Gong - (pronounced chee gung) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing system that can strengthen your immune system, prolong your life, increase your energy, uplift your spirit, enhance your general health, relax your body and calm your mind. The word derives from the Chinese words Chi, meaning "energy," and gong, meaning "work" or "practice." The movements of Chi Gong are similar to those of tai chi, although usually simpler in form and therefore easier to learn. The relative simplicity of Chi Gong makes it very accessible for anyone wanting to learn an authentic, comprehensive mind-body practice.
