Today I taught my first Cardio Yoga class in a l o n g time. I really enjoy Cardio Yoga because it gets my heart rate pumping, sweat pouring down my face, and I feel alive! Anyone that knows me, knows I'm not a big Aerobics gal. I actually do not enjoy sweating or doing anything that requires a lot of effort, I'm into ease. I have to say though, I felt so exhilarated after class. My skin was glowing, my attitude was more positive, and I felt more open to expressing love. If these are the benefits of aerobic workouts, I'm all in!
Join me next Tuesday morning at 8:30 am at the Indian Valley Community Center for another Cardiac Yoga Attack. I incorporate yoga awareness and breath warm-ups, with 3 - 4 rounds of Cardio Yoga moves and will be adding on yoga strength and fitness moves that can be done with or without free weights. I finish in Savasana, Yoga rest, in order to bring the body back into balance after the work out. It is also a good time to take in any visualizations of goals you want to achieve in your life.
This is a "go at your own pace" class. Do what you can, increase your blood volume and strength of your heart muscle working at your own fitness level.
The class is sponsored by Mountain Circle and is part of their new Winter Fitness Club. The Club meets twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursday at 8:30 am. Thursdays will be a Circuit Training format led by Josie Litchfield and Shauna Rossington of Mountain Circle Family Services. The cost is $25 per month. All the fitness leaders are volunteer so the money raised can go back into the Community Center for expenses and to purchase more fitness equipment.
Grab your gal or guy pal, your work out gear and join us weekly for a great workout to keep you fit this winter. The more people that come, the less classes will cost.
No more winter blues. Lots of heat will be generated here!
