What is HIIT?
Limited Capacity seats available

The body thrives when it is offered the opportunity to sweat, move, stretch and burn fat so that it can get stronger and build more muscle. HIIT is a form of exercise called high intensity interval training. This kind of training has been proven to burn more calories and become one of the most efficient forms of exercise. If you are new to working out or just want to jump off your yoga mat for a new adventure, then try out HIIT and see how this exciting class can make working out fun. This class will offer modifications, functional movement and lots of "how tos" to make sure the body is being efficient and safe during the workouts. Don't worry, no need to think you'll get "HIIT".

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Sometimes as yogis and yoginis we tend to not quite understand why any human would choose boot camp over yoga.

Boot Camp for Yogis & Yoginis will bring out the sweat without a heated room, use proper alignment and functional movements to create a safe, fun, and good workout worth your time off the mat. Sweatbands optional.

Journey Home: Intention Setting & Meditation
Limited Capacity filling up

Peace...breathe...be... allow yourself permission to be silent. We spend our days surrounded by constant noise and doing. During this hike we will tread silently through the woods and over the hills drinking in the exquisite beauty of nature. We will begin by creating an internal and sacred intention that will carry us throughout our journey. So often we look outward for the answers and forget that sometimes all it takes is the sound of silence. Feel free to bring a journal along to reflect if you'd like at the beginning or at the end as the majority of the hike will be a moving meditation.
