Roxy Borger instructs the following:
- Sweet Vinyasa
Our vinyasa classes are generally more active. Expect to sweat to a faster paced class that connects movement with breath. This class will energize, challenge, and inspire you. Expect to build strength, flexibility, mobility, and core integration. This class is for all levels, and we try to offer plenty of options for the beginner or advanced yogi so it's a healthy challenge. For those who like more of a workout, this class will focus on challenging standing poses, basic arm balances, and inversions.
Great for anybody and everybody, beginners to seasoned yogis, Hatha is the best place to start and is the perfect balance of strengthening and stretching. It blends standing poses, seated/floor poses, meditation, and breath exercises. This class may also include some active flow or sun salutations, but will be minimal.
