Love Yoga But Looking To Branch Out? Here Are 3 Fitness Classes For You To Try.
Posted on 02/11/2016 by Kulae
Here at Kulae, we love yoga just as much as the next person. But let’s face it, no matter how big of a yogi you are, sometimes it’s good to shake things up a little. In fact, trying a new fitness class can work parts of the body that you don’t normally use during your asanas, making your yoga practice that much stronger when you return to the mat.
Ready to hit the gym? Here’s what to check out:
Barre classes are great for those of us who love to channel our inner ballerina. The movements focus on common trouble areas for women- hips, thighs, butt, abs and arms. Small, lifting movements are repeated over and over and over. Trust us, you’ll feel the burn.
In the Boston area? Check out Bar Method in the Back Bay.
2. Barry’s Boot Camp
Yes, the party-type, music pumping atmosphere is most likely a complete 180 degrees from the peaceful aura of your favorite yoga studio. But sometimes that’s a good thing. Barry’s brands itself as the best workout in the world, and boy do they deliver. Workout types are categorized by day of the week, so you can pick and choose what area of the body you want to target. Or head over to the studio on a weekend to take advantage of their full-body workout.
For the Bostonians among us, Barry’s Boot Camp is located at 30 Chauncy Street. Find more info here.
3. Soul Cycle
Spin classes are a great workout, and the classes at Soul Cycle are fun and inspirational to boot. They offer classes that are great for newbies to more advanced riders, so you can find one that will challenge you. The playlists are awesome, and the instructors are motivating. Soul Cycle even has classes that use hand weights and includes core work, so you won’t miss out on a full-body workout.
In Boston you can find the Soul Cycle studios in the Back Bay and Chestnut Hill.
