TIGARD YOGA CLASSES

 

Yoga classes offered at The Circuit Gym in Tigard M - F; 7 pm to 8 pm.

Vinyasa | Every Monday + Friday at Tigard, 7-8 PM
with Sean Cassidy

Temp: 80-85° || APPROPRIATE FOR ALL LEVELS

There are four basic definitions of vinyasa: 1) the linking of body movement with breath; 2) a specific sequence of breath-synchronized movements used to transition between sustained postures; 3) setting an intention for one's personal yoga practice and taking the necessary steps toward reaching that goal; (4) a particular style of yoga class.

This class offers sequential movement interlinking postures to form a continuous flow creating a movement meditation that reveals all forms as being impermanent and encourages a sense of “letting go.” Attention is placed on the breath and the journey between the asanas rather than solely on achieving perfect body alignment in an asana. Vinyasa is truly an exploration of the body as it moves through space and time.

FITNESS CLASSES


Core for Climbers | 7 - 8 PM
M/W/F at NE with Peter Nguyen
T/Th at SW with Ben Legare

The core cannot be strong enough for climbers.  The Circuit's Core for Climbers class will target all areas of the core and will create stability in places you never knew were so important for climbing.  No matter your climbing style, improving your core strength will have a positive effect on your climbing performance.  Your core is not just your abs!  There are many muscle groups that work together to provide stability for the body when climbing and so many of them make up your core.  Core for Climbers will also provide much needed injury prevention by targeting anterior muscle groups often neglected by climbers.


Suspension Training | 7-8 PM
Th at NE with Peter Nguyen

Suspension training involves body weight exercises that develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously; all of which are integral to climbing performance and injury prevention!  This class will cater to individual levels of strength and fitness.  No prior experience necessary.  Come join and get fit and healthy!
