The second half of class takes place in the Inner Fitness Studio and includes restorative floor poses specifically designed for cycling and running enthusiasts. This is truly a comprehensive mind-body experience.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is an opportunity for gentle movement, stretching, simple breathing exercises, and seated meditation. It is ideal for learning beginner poses, relaxation techniques, and terminology.

Heated Yoga

The foundation of Heated Yoga derives from a traditional hot yoga class and its 26 static postures, but incorporates the flow and grace found in many of VIDA's other Vinyasa and Power classes. Students will receive the benefits of a Hot Yoga class with increased depth in poses as well as strengthening benefits, but at a soothing temperature of 85 degrees. All levels, including beginners, are welcome, and the class is accessible for those with shoulder injuries, as all chatarungas have been removed from the sequence. This class appeals to any student looking to deepen a yoga practice.

Pilates
