PiYo LIVE combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. We crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, low impact workout that leaves your body looking long, lean and incredibly defined.  The perfect class for those who love the sweat and burn of circuit training, but know they need the flexibility and mobility of yoga.

Tue., 2:30 p.m.                                            SmartFLOW Yoga                                           Instructor: Doug Hall

Open to one and all regardless of yoga experience. The sequence and focus of the class will be tailored to the needs of the participants. Suitable for all bodies, couch potatoes, and varsity athletes alike, this class can help increase flexibility, improve breath body connection for stronger performance, and improved regulation of your body’s reactions to the physical and emotional stresses of the day.

 

Tue., 5:30 p.m.                                             Tabata                                                              Instructor: Robin Harrington

Tabata training is a very intense form of Interval Training. Created by Izumi Tabata, the Tabata Protocol is simply the best supra-aerobic cardio workout every discovered. A popular regimen based on a 1996 study uses 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles). A session consists of a warm up period of exercise, followed by six to 10 repetitions of high intensity exercise, separated by medium intensity exercise, and ending with a period of cool down exercise.

 

Wed. 5:30 p.m.                                              Ashtanga Yoga *                                           Instructor: Thomas Klepach

* This class is held at the Bill & Joan Alfond Main Street Commons Yoga Room. Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) based on the ancient Radiant Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali. This vigorous method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. Once this sequence is internalized, this yoga form is particularly amenable to the adoption of self practice. Dr. Klepach studied Ashtanga while living in New Zealand, and teaches Human Anatomy and Physiology among other subjects in the Colby Biology Department. 

 

Thu. 12:00 p.m.                                           Intermediate Yoga                                            Instructor: Laura Meader

Intermediate Yoga draws on traditional hatha yoga flows and poses and moves at a moderate pace. Classes include standing and balance poses; energetic vinyasa flows; twists, hip openers, and shoulder openers; and cool down poses in seated and supine positions. Not recommended for beginners.
 
Thu. 6:30 p.m.                                             Circuit Training                                                  Instructor: Robin Harrington
