YOGA & FITNESS SCHEDULE
H. I. P. (High Intensity Pilates) is a fun, fast paced total body workout. We follow a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) format and offer clear and precise instruction on exercise form to ensure safety and best results. Don't be discouraged by the 'high intensity', as all moves will have modifications to suit your needs and still give you a great workout. This class will take place on a mat, with movement ranging from laying on the ground to standing up. This class will help you strengthen your core, upper body, legs and cardiovascular system in one upbeat hour.
The Yoga studio is open every Sunday morning before our 9 AM Yoga class for you to join a community of practitioners in mindful stillness. While the intention is to offer 30 minutes of meditative time (8:15-8:45 AM), you are welcome to quietly arrive or depart the space at any time during the meditation period. Facilitated by Kim Allcock (Yoga and Fitness supervisor).
We welcome members of our community at large (and our Mesa Rim community) to join a rotating roster of our skilled instructors for this weekly FREE Yoga practice. We offer a gentle and welcoming practice suitable for all levels, taught with inclusive language, and designed to bring balance to your nervous system.
Designed to strike a balance between building strength and increasing flexibility, this class incorporates vinyasa-style flow sequences with poses held for several breaths. Physical strength and mobility are improved through an active flow of postures, transitions, and one-legged balance poses. Longer holds allow the release of tension stored in the body, and the chance to practice calming the mind through breathing techniques, meditation, and present-moment consciousness. This class is optimal for enhancing climbing mobility and proprioceptive awareness!
75 minutes of self myofascial release and functional mobility work using foam rollers, Lacrosse balls, and other tools to help you really get to those persistent tight spots. Connective tissue builds rigidity along lines of stress and this can limit movement. Self myofascial release, active stretching, and antagonist/stabilization strengthening can help overcome structural imbalances and safely increase range of motion to prevent injury and improve athletic performance.
This class is similar to our Functional Flexibility class in a longer format which enables more thorough and in-deptth work.
Stretch and tone your body, develop resilience in your nervous system, and claim agency over your
attention through all-levels mindful movement, nourishing relaxation, and simple guided meditation.
Come as you are and leave feeling calm, steady and focused. There will be many little tips and tools you
can take with you to keep the ease and focus as step off your mat.
