Are you new to classes? We encourage you to try classes to change up your workout routine, to motivate you to take it to the next level and for plain old fashion fun!

Tips for class:

  • Don’t try and keep up with the instructor – they are teaching for all levels!
  • Keep your weights low or perhaps no weights at all just do the movements. Weight repetition can be taxing. Take it low & slow until you find “your” balance within the class.
  • Cardio can leave you huffing and puffing! That’s ok; simply march on the spot until you are ready to join in again.
  • Tell our certified instructors if you have any limitations so they can provide a modification.
  • Bring lots of water and a towel for sweating.

Classes are an amazing way to see your progress. It won’t be long before you realize you didn’t stop or you added a pound or two to your weights.

Meet Julia O’Conner – Yoga Instructor

Join Julia Thursday mornings at 9:00am for Power Yoga. Julia also teaches Saturday mornings at 10:30-11:45am and Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:00pm.

"Fitness and Yoga has been part of my life for many years. I developed hip issues due to cycling and my therapist advised me that I should incorporate stretching into my rehabilitation program.
Went to my first Yoga class and LOVED it immediately! Since then, my passion for Yoga has grown as well as my desire to share it with others. I have been a Certified Hatha Yoga instructor since 2006 and received my Chair Yoga certification in 2017.
Benefits of practicing in Yoga can improve Flexibility and energy, strengthens and tones your muscles, detoxifies your body, and lessens your Stress by encouraging relaxation.
It is my mandate that everyone leave class with more peace of mind, feeling stronger, both physically and mentally. It is a joy for me to share this beautiful practice we call Yoga. "
