Our Featured Class for March is Yin Yoga!

Yin Yoga - This is a new class that focuses on stretching the deep connective tissue in the joints. In a yin class, you will hold each pose for approximately 3 to
5 minutes. Greater range of motion due to the lengthening of the connective tissue & increased circulation in the joints are benefits of this class.Suitable for beginners & advanced students.

We offer Yin Yoga on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. in Studio A with Maggie

Please make sure you check our March Group Fitness schedule for class changes!  You can print one off our website or pick one up at the front desk!  For more information on our Group Fitness program, please contact Jennifer Jaggers at 620-245-0900.  Our new classes on this schedule are Yin Yoga on Fridays @ 10:00 a.m. and Cardio & Iron for FitLife on Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 10:15 a.m.
