Antigravity FUN 1!

 

Take your yoga experience above the mat with us in Antigravity Yoga.  Through the use of hammocks suspended from the ceiling, you can experience a workout unlike any other.  Total inversion without compression in the neck and shoulders, deep tissue massage, release of fascia, balance and proprioceptive awareness take this workout beyond yoga.  Done in a safe, small-class environment, participants will get hands-on instruction as they literally hang upside down, bringing blood flow to the spinal discs and stimulation to the lymphatic system and 'good' hormones.  Look at the world from a new perspective and have fun while you work out!

Note: Antigravity Yoga should not be practiced by individuals with high blood pressure, glaucoma, detached retina or while pregnant.  Please visit with one of our trainers if you have questions.

TRX for Cross Training


TRX® Suspension Training® is a revolutionary total-body fitness program that uses gravity against the individual’s own body weight to simultaneously develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. The TRX® device is attached to an anchor point. Each participant then grabs the handles with their hands or attaches their feet in the foot cradles. One simply changes the angle of their body from the ground for the different exercises. Having the ability to change the body's angle allows one to work with more or less body weight which can intensify or modify a specific exercise. Each session will include a total body workout with squats, lunges, core work and upper body.
