Our yoga is tailored toward helping dance bodies maintain a healthy balance between strength and flexibility. This class looks and feels a lot like other yoga classes except we work postures in very specific ways to apply towards our dancing.

Alternately, we slow down to hold postures so that we can really explore alignment and strength. With our breath guiding us the whole way, we leave this class feeling a sense of deep satisfaction in the application of our mind + body + spirit connection.
Created by Colombian dancer Beto Pérez, Zumba® is an energetic dance fitness style founded on Latin dance and music. Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it out! We take the “work” out of workout, mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® fitness classes are often called “exercise in disguise.” Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
