BARRE fusion


Blending barre, cardio and toning exercises, this class uses ballet and Pilates-inspired moves to give you a full-body cardio and strength workout. No dance experience is necessary and moves and weights can be modified to your experience level.



This all-in-one barre class positions you at a fixed barre, with you using it to move in and out of lower and upper body movements for a core, cardio, flexibility and strength-training workout.

The goal is to build physical vitality & increase consciousness.  Wearing white clothing, for this practice could heighten your experience.

PILATES fusion


Pilates is a form of mind-body exercise aimed at brining the body back into balance, by focusing on developing a strong core - the central area of your body which is home to a complex set of muscles that affect practically every movement made by the human body.  This class combines the breath focused movement of Pilates & Yoga with traditional fitness elements.

SOL yoga

Ashtanga~Vinyasa Flow 1-2

Explore breath synchronized rhythm & body movement with a mindful, dance-like, intelligently sequenced class.  This class emphasizes smoothly moving with deliberate attention and intention, rather than letting gravity run the show.  Join us for a practice focused on brining us to the edge of experience to witness the moment unfolding & to realize it is us who is unfolding.

FLOW yoga

Power~Vinyasa Flow 2-3

A dynamic and challenging Vinyasa-style class that synchronizes the breath with movement and builds strength with continuous flow, followed by an inspiring longer held peak pose, and a yin/restorative/meditative finish.  Experience recommended.
