5. Yoga

Now you might be thinking Yoga, how can this class help me lose weight. Well, even though you may have the common goal of losing weight, not everyone wants to achieve it the same way. Hence, Yoga is perfect for individuals that are looking to escape the loud music and fast paced nature of the other classes. Our Yoga is slower and a more controlled class focused on stringing postures together. Aim is to move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath to improve your flexibility. Commonly referred to as “vinyasa” yoga, this class offers a variety of postures so no two classes are ever alike. Yoga is commonly used as a recovery class with our members. But don’t let that fool you, as Yoga has numerous progressions available and can be a really exhausting class if you want it to be.
