Fitness Classes at Wy’east Studio!

 

prg-cross-circuit-instagram prg-HIIT-instagram- prg-FRT-instagramWy’east Studio at PRG now offers three new ways to stay in shape, aid your climbing goals, or both!

Introducing Cross Circuit Training, FRT [Functional Resistance Training] for Climbers, and HIIT [High Intensity Interval Training] + Core.

Cross Circuit focuses on combining strength training and cardio-style workouts. It is a circuit inspired workout that focuses on power, agility, strength, core, and cardio to give you a full body conditioning in one class.
FRT for Climbers works to improve Functional Strength, which is the strength that gets us through daily activities. FRT is a strength conditioning class that focuses on multi-joint, multi-muscle movements using resistance training to improve strength and increase range of motion.
HIIT + Core is a 30 minute high intensity interval training workout, followed by 15 minutes of core exercises. This interval-based class utilizes different metabolic conditioning formats, as well as body-weight exercises designed to improve your performance, endurance, and tone your body.

For all classes modifications for all fitness levels are provided. Gym shoes are required but mats are optional.

Instructor Highlight – Christina Provencio

Posted by on Dec 7, 2015 in People Profiles, Yoga & Fitness Studio | 0 comments

Welcome to the PRG instructor highlight series! Each month we’ll be introducing you to one of our awesome instructors here at PRG in hopes that you find a little inspiration and motivation to get to class or try a new one!

This month we are highlighting, Wy’east yoga instructor, Christina Provencio. She is full of passion, love and creativity, which shine through in everything she does.

We asked Christina who she would encourage to come to her classes and here is what she said:

My classes are for the curious. In restorative yoga I offer a softly lit space with dreamy whimsical tunes. We hold supportive poses for several mins in order to dig deep, release tension and nurture our muscles. I use essential oils to assist in relaxing & soothing students while they focus on breathing with intention. In foundations yoga, we work on building strength and familiarizing our body with the asanas. There will always be an option to challenge your practice in this class, as there will always be an option to modify and listen to your limits. I call all walks of life to come and enjoy the light & magic that I see in you.  

“I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing, as though I had wings”. – Mary Oliver
