If you have a carpeted space to work on, feel free to wear socks or go barefoot. If you will be on hardwood or laminate floors, wear whatever you will be most comfortable in.

*** If you feel the need to get cardio in during this class, you may swap out any exercise with a Cardio Fusion or Kickboxing move; it's your workout! Replacing 3-5 of the strength moves with cardio moves will be plenty to get your heart rate up.

**Please Note** If your primary goal is to build muscle and body strength, and you are using this class as one of your strength training sessions for the week, please do not swap out a strength move for a cardio move, as this will only inhibit your strength gains. Remember, having more muscle on your body will help you burn more calories even at rest.

45 minutes.

Fiercely Chill Yoga (1)

Let go of everything you’ve ever heard about yoga, and just come try it.  Think of this class as the time where you create functional health in your body, thus helping you to go farther in all aspects of your fitness journey.  This class will focus on de-stressing the body and mind while building strength, working on balance, gaining mobility in the joints, and releasing tension from tight muscles while tuning into the wisdom of our breath.  This is an all levels of flexibility and fitness friendly class (aka, no need to be able to touch your toes!).

Feel free to keep socks on as long as they are serving you, but please no shoes.

Equipment Needed:
-Yoga strap (a belt, tie, or rope will work - but nothing stretchy!)
-Folded blanket to sit up on/cushion for the knees
-Yoga block (preferably 2 of them and choose thicker over thinner if you need to buy some)

We use these props to make your practice as supportive and appropriate for your body as can be, so you are able to have the best experience possible. Have a good couch cushion or pillow nearby for extra support. You never know when you might want a little extra oomph to support this elbow, or that knee! Feel free to use any other yoga props you have at home. If you don't have a yoga mat, that's okay. In that case, choose a location in your home that's carpeted.

There are plenty of places to buy yoga props. Three websites we recommend are:

Deep Stretch Logo

In this slow paced hour, experience the best of yin yoga, restorative yoga, and mobility exercises to increase your flexibility, joint health, circulation, and mental well-being. You will be guided through longer held postures on the mat targeting the connective tissues, super tight muscles, and mobility issues in the joints.   Many options will be given so you can get the most of out this renewing hour, no matter your level of fitness or flexibility.  This is the perfect class for post-workout, post-run, and definitely post stressful week! Calm your nervous system and rejuvenate your entire being so you are relaxed, focused, and READY to enjoy the weekend at your best.

If you would like to get the most out of this class, and you plan on taking class over Zoom, or you would feel more comfortable using your own set of props at the Gym, please invest in the materials listed below.

Equipment needed:
-1 Non-Stretchy yoga strap, belt, or tie (minimum 4 feet long)
-2 Yoga blocks (choose 4 inch blocks over 3 inch blocks if you need to buy a pair)
-1 blanket - the thicker the better (a 2nd blanket is helpful if you get chilly!)
-1 round yoga bolster. 9-10 inches wide by 26-30 inches long. If you already have a rectangular bolster in similar dimensions, that will be usable, but you will need extra blocks to prop it up appropriately for certain poses. If you plan on using your rectangular bolster, please have at least 3 blocks as well.
-Feel free to use your yoga mat, but there is technically no need for one during this class if you are on a carpeted floor.
-Feel free to keep socks on as long as they are serving you, but please no shoes.

We use these props to make your practice as supportive and appropriate for your body as can be, so you are able to have the best experience possible.
