What exactly ARE you? A gym? A yoga studio?

We are a homey, welcoming center for fitness of body, mind and community. We are in an old house, and have lots of fun and creative fitness classes for all ages and levels of experience, plus inspiring and informative programs for fitness of mind and spirit.

We welcome experienced fitness enthusiasts who are looking for something new, as well as for those who are completely new to exercise who might not feel comfortable going to a traditional gym. We want to take away some of the obstacles that keep us stuck in old or unhealthy patterns. We want to inspire and make it easier for people to move, breathe, sweat and feel better in their bodies without feeling self-conscious, anxious, or held back by their injuries or limitations.

We focus on what we call “Whole Person Fitness” and we like orchestrating “Whole Family Fun!” We like to create opportunities for our community members of all ages to "Play," to feel good moving and using our bodies while growing our minds. Our classes are fun, safe, and challenging. We like to help you listen to and understand your body, instead of hating it, ignoring it, or beating it up with crazy workouts that it might not be ready for. We focus on developing fitness safely and sustainably, and we rely on minimal tools like great music, simple equipment, and your own bodyweight to create just the right amount of challenge for you. Our positive spirit and community vibe helps keep you coming back. We are an incubator for dreams and goals of the many community members who come through our doors, and we watch those seeds of potential grow together as a community.

What classes do you have?

We have classes in a variety of lengths and formats running in each of our 4 classrooms much of the time. Our classes are tailored to different interests, levels of experience and abilities. Some classes are on-going drop-ins that require nothing more than showing up, some are special workshops or introductory classes, and some are in-depth series that really break things down for you. We have….

• Plenty of Yoga: Beginner and Introductory Yoga, Hot, Gentle Restorative, Teen and Kid Yoga, plus Intermediate Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, and In-Depth special programs for more experienced practitioners
• Aerial Circus Arts: including hammock silks, straight silks, and vertical pole
• Choreographed Workout Classes: plus hard core circuit-style, CrossFit-style, and TRX-style conditioning classes
• Dance: Barre, Urban Line Dance, Bellydance and World Dance Fusion, plus lots of "Fun Fridays" where we dabble in other fun dance
• A Core Strength Program: Ab-Rehab (Therapeutic), Pilates, and Hard Core Workouts
