Tuesdays 4:30pm & Saturdays 8:15am
This class is appropriate for people of all levels, from beginner to elite. Each class will focus on either a movement pattern (push, pull, squat, hinge, core stability, core rotation, and locomotion), movement characteristic (flexibility, mobility, strength, conditioning, or agility), or body part. Students will alternate between exercises that challenge a given movement pattern, movement characteristic, or body part and different stretches, breath practices, and movement variations in order to leave each class with a deeper understanding of their unique body and its needs.

Yoga For Bigger Bodies
Body Love Yoga creates a welcoming, accessible, and inclusive studio environment for yogis of every size, shape, age & ability. As a body positive yoga class all bodies are good no matter size or ability. With this, yoga pose options are offered for each pose, along with guided gratitude for the body that brings you along your journey every day. Classes will give you a chance to connect with your body with kindness. One of the goals of Body Love Yoga intends on offering yoga instruction for those who feel abandoned by the yoga community, and to be a place where students can bring their full selves, without closeting any part of their identity or experience that they don’t want to hide. We focus on breathing, mindfulness, and strength-building in an intentional, supportive, and body-positive environment.
Capoeira with Chris
The origin of capoeira is debated; some say it was developed in central Africa and migrated to Brazil with those captured and enslaved, others say it was developed IN Brazil by enslaved Africans. Either way, it is a martial art first practiced by Brazil’s enslaved, used to escape their chains and evade future capture as they lived free. Knowing that any subjugated person practicing a martial art would mean certain death, practitioners included elements of dance to disguise their movements. We don’t “spar” in capoeira; we play. We don’t have “opponents”; we have partners. Additionally, we sing and play music to drive and complement the games. Capoeira was illegal even after slavery’s abolition in 1888, punishable by death. It wasn’t until the early 20th Century that it became legal and the first academies opened publicly. Today, capoeira has spread to all continents except Antarctica, and it welcomes people of all ages, races, ethnicities, genders, and physical abilities.
No matter what your ability is, it is important to be comfortable while training capoeira. You will be stretching and bending in ways you didn’t realize you could, including going upside down and backwards. With that in mind, dress as comfortably as you see fit for inversions and stretches.
