Cardio Sculpt will use a variety of different class formats to provide both strength training and a cardiovascular workout each day. This new, team taught class will regularly incorporate circuit training, interval work, as well as the use of weights and bands to keep things new and challenging for participants. This fun, fast-paced class does not require previous experience with group fitness workouts just a willingness to try something new in a friendly and supportive environment.

Nurture and energize the entire self through the fusion of dynamic poses, breath work and deep relaxation. The practice of yoga encourages greater flexibility, strength, balance, self-awareness and tranquility. Participants of all levels are welcome to attend. Feel free to bring your own mat, if you wish, or use a mat provided by SIRA.
Slow Flow (Monday/Wednesday at 5:15pm) - This slow moving meditative practice is a way to counteract the fast pace of our daily lives. The speed of the breath and movements allows more time for self-reflection, strength building, stability and postural integrity. This practice gives space to adapt the pose and the transition to fit the individual, making it safer and to gain the greatest benefits of each pose. Slowing down also allows greater appreciation for the subtlety of each movement and the connection to each present moment. This class is appropriate for all participants regardless of fitness level or prior yoga experience.
Classes are offered Mondays and Wednesdays
from 5:15-6:15pm in the CJR Aerobics Room
