Sun Salutations (Melissa Asay)

In this yoga class, we will lengthen and strengthen, and flex and extend our bodies as we participate in several sequences of salutations. These sequences provide us with an approachable workout, while also avoiding strain and stress on our bodies. We will explore the importance of exhales and inhales, as well as being comfortable with our own selves. How does breathing in or out change our ability to do different yoga poses? Why should we pause and spend time with ourselves each day? Who can plank the longest? Come and find out!

1:15 pm - 2:00 pm

Raising The Barre Of Who You Are (Melissa Asay)

While a lot of yoga focuses on stretching and breathing, this upbeat class uses poses and exercises that quickly warm up our bodies and get us sweating! Barre is a perfect blend of yoga and a high-intensity workout. In this low-impact exercise class, we will discover how to be safe in poses, build our endurance, and get our hearts pumping fast!
