In this 30-minute class, we will use foam rollers and tennis balls to focus on actively rolling muscle groups like quadriceps, hamstrings, and back, as well as offering trigger point release via tennis balls to help loosen the muscles of glutes, hips, and shoulders. The purpose of this offering is to teach members to self-massage and ease tension in the body from overworked muscles, mange pain and prevent injury. Think of this class as a tune up for the body so it can function more optimally.
Functional Fit is a well rounded full body workout that combines traditional large muscle calisthenics, such as lunges, squats, and pushups, with weight distribution and balance exercise that strengthen smaller supporting muscles. The results are long lean lines, more functional strength, wider range of motion, and better balance and posture. We will use a mix of light and heavy hand weights, and spend some time on joint stability by moving our bodies dynamically in all directions.

Yin Yoga is a passive practice of yoga that focuses on the opening fascia in the body. Fascia is the connective tissue of the body that runs beneath the skin, over organs, muscles, tendons, and the skeletal system. With injury, surgery, or overuse, the fascia can get stuck, creating tightness or misalignment in the body. Opening the fascia can allow for the body to function more appropriately and can reduce pain and inflammation, and even assist in preventing further injury in the body. Yin incorporates breath work, while holding the postures.
