Mind / Body / Flexibility

Gentle Yoga Need some time to relax your mind and body? Gentle Yoga is just the class for you. This practice will be slower in pace to allow you to stretch and relax your body from head to toe. Expect principles from hatha, vinyasa, and yin style practices.

It is designed to help you move deeper into yoga poses and improve both strength and cardio. You will leave this class with a positive mind and a sweaty body!
Vinyasa Yoga Vinyasa Yoga connects movement and breath. The "asanas" (yoga postures) can be arranged into different sequences that can meet the group's need or mood. Vinyasa yoga allows room for differences from instructor to instructor, unlike other forms, which have set sequences of movement. This is a fun, athletic form of yoga that will lift your spirits and energy levels while increasing flexibility, strength and balance.
Barre Ready to pulse it out in USF's newest group fitness format? Barre is a fusion of yoga, Pilates, strength training, and ballet. Barre classes incorporate specific sequencing patterns and isometric movements that target specific muscle groups. This pattern of exercise helps to improve strength, balance, flexibility and posture!
Mobility Rx Being mobile is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle. Not being able to move a joint freely through its full range of motion increases risk of injury. MobilityRx is designed to improve and enhance your mobility, strength, balance, and coordination.
