Group Active Workshop
Bellyfit®: Let’s get this Party Started!
Bellyfit is a super fun and fresh combination of dance moves inspired by Bellydance, African dance, Bhangra and Bollywood. We’ll get our heart rates up, shake away stress and get the sweat flowing with our powerful, inspiring cardio moves, and then sculpt and tone with Pilates core work. We’ll finish up with a deep, yet relaxing Yoga inspired stretch and mindful Mudra Meditation. For women only, Bellyfit® is on the leading edge of mind/body/spirit group exercise. It’s got everything you need from a workout in just one hour! Please bring clean runners, your water bottle and a yoga mat if you have one.
Daily Yoga Instruction
Take the time to find quiet and stillness in this slow paced style of yoga that allows us to stimulate our connective tissues by holding poses, as opposed to moving through them. Yin yoga will increase mobility, lower stress levels, lubricate the joints, increase flexibility and enhance relaxation. Let Leanne show you the joy of being under the Yin-fluence!
A sweet symphony of flow yoga, core focused Pilates moves and traditional fitness, fused with sublime, inspiring music. You will leave this class feeling strong, refreshed and revitalized.
For both classes: All levels of fitness welcome, no previous yoga experience necessary. You are worth it!
The wind down. Let’s end this awesome day with a gentle stretch and take some time to slow down and let it all settle in. All levels are welcome to join, please be sure to bring layers and your yoga mat.
