NIGHT RIDER (coming back soon!)
Turn the lights down low, turn inward and draw strength through meditative flow. These candlelit rides will provide an environment conducive to reaching an ultimate zen flow!
Dig deep. Slow grinding hill repeats with a few sprints as we plateau. This class has been designed to help build up a little extra strength and stamina.
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.
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!
Enjoy this Pilates-based super workout where focus will be on strengthening your core, back and neck. Stretch and strengthen the whole body while building endurance, flexibility and balance all while listening to some great music!

KUNDALINI YOGA + MEDITATION
Change and learning are life-long. In our modern age, full of complexity and challenge, we require useful, accessible, and proven tools to live life to our fullest potential. We must maintain mental, emotional and physical strength and flexibility. Kundalini is a powerful yoga technology that helps us to do just this! You do not need to know a single yoga pose to practice Kundalini. You do not need to buy into a belief system, you do not need to be flexible, you do not need to label yourself “a yogi.”
Kundalini is the yoga of action. 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. The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. Get ready for some big sound as you deepen your connection of body and breath. Yoga is you experiencing you.
Accessible to all levels. All welcome. No experience needed.

YANG-STYLE TAI CHI CHUAN - OPEN PRACTICE FOR OUR ZEN COMMUNITY
Tai Chi Chuan is a traditional Chinese Internal art. Combine fluid flexible movement with mind-body accordance, structural integration, correct alignment and an understanding of the transfer of forces and the flow of energy. It has been used for generations for its health benefits, to enhance vitality and to promote over all general well-being.
Our ZEN community is welcome to join us in this practice, on Thursdays from 10:45 am - 11:45 am. You can book into this class, free of charge, through your online account. Mary believes in sharing what she has learned, and we are happy to provide the space to facilitate this transfer of knowledge. Mary is also at the studio on Sunday mornings between 8 am - 12 pm for public practice.
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.
Experience the best of both worlds. You will be guided through a mat Pilates class, bringing you strength, flexibility and balance while toning your abdominal muscles - enabling you to stand taller, strengthen your back and improve your overall health. This class incorporates the mindfulness and breath work of yoga and Pilates and is suitable for all levels.
