Take a deep breath, relax your mind, and join us as we expand our physical and mental flexibility. This beginner level yoga class uses techniques to activate the body while simultaneously releasing tension in the jaw, neck, shoulders, arms, fingers, hips, legs, feet and toes. We focus on gently stretching on the floor then working our way to standing in balancing positions. Let’s take a journey to stretching further, breathing deeper, and feeling better from the inside out. Instructor: Sara Hernandez.

Ditch the workout, join the party, and be ready to get your sweat on! We take the work out of workout by going through a series of calorie-burning steps in this pumped-up dance party. If it’s your first time joining the fun, then you’re in the right place. Remember to keep moving, breathing, and of course, smiling. I encourage letting loose, being real, and I won’t stop until I teach you how to move to the music and feel free. I will lead you there. Let’s get started! Instructor: Sara Hernandez.
