WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CLASS AND INSTRUCTORS:
All classes include a warm up, 40-45-minutes of cardio conditioning for our 60-minute classes and 30-35-minutes of cardio conditioning for the 50-minute lunch crunch classes, cardio cool-down and stretching. Our classes are taught to the revolutions per minute (RPM), and you are in control of how hard you work through adjusting the tension.
Our instructors teach 2 different methodologies - Terry and Andrew teach timed drills and Sarah, Cindy, Kim and Pam teach choreographed drills to the music. Both systems guarantee a good sweat!
Developing your cardio system takes a few weeks, be patient and listen to your body. We will take a pulse check to identify if we are on target...or if we could be working a little harder. Heart rate monitors are recommended, but not required, and can sync up with our bikes.
Please note that if you aren't a regular rider, you may feel tender in your sitting region for a few days after your first class - this too shall pass!
You can do it!

A kriya yoga practice, you will experience powerful movements that develop willpower, dissolve negative thought patterns, strengthen the body and the cardiovascular system, and clear the nervous system.

50-minutes + 60-minutes
This practice is potent medicine to remedy the fast-paced and often exhausting expectations of our culture. Yin teaches us to slow down, observe our inner landscape and cultivate an ability to settle into ourselves. Most styles of yoga are designed to work the musculature of the body, the “yang” tissue. This practice is different in that it focuses on the “yin” tissues of the body such as bones, ligaments, joints and fascia. Modifications are offered to best serve all bodies and each pose is held a little longer.
