CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

  • Hatha Yoga is the most practiced form of yoga in America.  It uses meditation, breathing techniques (pranayama), and different poses (asanas).  There are close to 200 hatha yoga postures, with diverse modification and variations that work to gain flexibility and strength for the spine and massage the internal organs, glands and tissues.  Hatha yoga postures strengthen, stretch and align the body to promote overall balance and suppleness.
  • Core Yoga is hatha yoga with an extra emphasis on core muscle strengthening.
  • Circuit Training Exercise for all Fitness Levels: circuit training is a class in which you do one exercise for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then move to the next exercise. The exercise pattern may alternate between an aerobic activity (like skipping) and a muscle-strengthening activity (like using weights or body weight). There are rest times between exercises and exercise sets.
  • Trail Running: The group meets at the bottom of Knox Mountain and begins with the warm up. We begin our trail run after the warm up at a hiking pace and increase the pace gradually.  We reach the first lookout and do some exercises to bring our heart rates lower and then jog back down.  We finish with core exercise and stretches.  All fitness levels are welcome.  For the more advanced  people, we have more exercise to do while waiting for the entire group to assemble. The eventual goal is for the group  to reach the second lookout!  This class is going to continue until December.
