With an updated and contemporary approach to the practice of vinyasa yoga, our Flow format’s been developed with a foundation based in modern biomechanics and exercise science, while embracing some of the more traditional elements in the yoga asana practice. You can expect to link breath with movement, build warmth and awareness in your body, and refine your own personalized mindfulness practice. All levels welcome, no experience required. (Mat required)
YOGA: YIN / Restore
An excellent counterbalance to the physical and mental intensity of climbing, you’ll explore passive stretching, restorative shapes, three-dimensional breathing, and simple meditation techniques within a warm and relaxing environment. Yin yoga offers a slower paced practice focused around the lengthening of ligaments, fascia, and connective tissues rather than muscle. Asanas (poses) are held for several minutes in order to promote mobility in “nonmalleable” areas. All levels welcome, no experience required. (Mat required)

Hatha Yoga, literally translated as Discipline of Force, utilizes as balanced approach towards yoga practice. Participants can expect a practice that is equal parts invigorating and calming, building up not only physical strength and flexibility, but also mental and physical relaxation and focus. Hatha is designed to accommodate mixed-level participants. (Mat required.)
BARBELL & STRENGTH FUNDAMENTALS
Barbell & Strength Fundamentals will encompass a full body workout, with primary focus on multi-joint lifts, alongside correctional movement to improve muscular imbalances created by climbing. This is a perfect introductory level class to take your climbing fitness to the next level, prevent injuries, and improve posture and general well-being.
MOVEMENT & MOBILITY
This format incorporates various methods of movement where you’ll find yourself immersed in an interactive experience that encourages exploration of the mind/body connection. Active mobility work, coordination, natural movement patterns, and an emphasis on play are the foundational pillars of this unique offering. (No mat required.)
HIIT CIRCUIT TRAINING
HIIT circuit training promotes endurance and strength through a combination of weight training, plyometric movement, training the body to maximize active recovery rest periods, increase aerobic capacity, and work through explosive movements to delay muscular fatigue in sport.
