CrossFit Chill is a Power House original. Imagine CrossFit...but with less grunting and competition. Imagine Yoga...but with a dynamic functional strength portion taught by professional coaches.
Who is CrossFit Chill for? We venture to say everyone.
- CrossFitters who need to tone it down a few times a week and add in a more low impact, breathing-focused, flexibility and mobility-designed program into their workout regime.
- Yogis who need to build functional strength and a heart rate conditioning base that they cannot get in a classic yoga class.
- Endurance athletes who need the mobility of yoga and strength of CrossFit.
- Beginners who are interested in strength training but are intimidated by CrossFit or are nervous of jumping in too fast without the proper form, or may still be rehabbing an old injury.
This 60 minute class will begin with a warmup sequence that will build heat through breath work, warm up the muscles and joints through slower yoga-inspired movements, and provide a grounding and meditation focus for class.
CrossFit Chill instructors will methodically coach students through CrossFit-style movements, such as squats, pushups, pull-ups, cleans, kettle bell complexes, and presses in a fun, friendly, and encouraging group class environment. A major focus will be on proper technique and quality reps over quantity. Bad form is never chill.
CrossFit Chill classes wrap up with a juicy cool down, offering longer poses to stretch your muscles, slow down your heart rate, and relax into the benefits of your practice. Joined with sweet tunes and happy vibes, CrossFit Chill is cooler than a polar bear's toenails.
Our Power House CrossFit classes are focused on movement quality, skill progressions, and FUN! CrossFit classes include a skill-based warm-up, skill or strength training, the Workout of the Day (or “WOD”), and mobility work. The workouts can always be scaled so that new athletes can workout alongside veteran athletes. On some days, the WOD will be a 10-20 minute metabolic conditioning workout that combines several movements or exercises that are grouped into sets and either completed for time or in as many rounds a possible (“AMRAP”). On other days, the class will focus on a strength piece (like a 1 rep max deadlift) followed by a shorter metabolic conditioning “finisher” workout.
WHAT IS MOGA!?? It is a Power House original, combining Mobility work and Yoga to create a new hybrid of flexibility, soft tissue, and range of motion practices that connects the mind, body, and spirit. Moga deepens your understanding of your own body's soft tissue health, and how to provide self-maintenance on a daily and weekly basis. Classes are held in a peaceful space with chill music and good vibes, helping students to relax into their practice and release the tensions of the week.
Moga class takes the structure of a gentle yoga flow, and sprinkles in specific mobility exercises with tools like foam rollers, mobility balls, and dynamic band stretches to provide deeper healing to your soft tissue and the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. All Moga classes contain a strong breathing practice, helping to bring the body into a more alkaline state, boost immunity, and positively balance hormones.
Moga is appropriate for everyone, and is most effective if done at least 1-2 times per week. It is a wonderful compliment to an active person's routine, providing the necessary recovery to stay injury-free throughout life. Mo' Moga, please!
Midline & Mobility is an active recovery class that focuses on engaging your core to support mobility throughout your body, as well as lengthen and decompress your spine.
Our Midline & Mobility work pulls from the bodies of knowledge from yoga, classical Pilates, and mobilitywod, and we focus on mobilizing the entire body through movement. Pilates elements will work on flexing and extending throughout the body while developing more core capacity. The yoga and mobilitywod-style pieces will identify trigger points and inflexibility and provides movements and exercises to correct them.
Adding this class into your weekly training is a necessary for working on mobility issues, past injuries, and developing awareness in a low impact way that is beneficial to all athletes and lifters. We will pay special attention to developing a practice that benefits healthy shoulders, a healthy spine and core strength- all things critical to sport performance and CrossFit.
Our Gentle & Restorative yoga class is exactly how it sounds- one hour to quiet the mind, relax the body, and renew the spirit. This class will use gentle yoga poses to access a deeper connection to the breath, and utilize tools like guided imagery to let go of the stresses of the week.
Treat yourself to this class- your life will thank you!
