RISE & SHINE YOGA: Set the tone of your day with uplifting, intention-setting classes that enhance your day ahead. The class will focus on a positive state-of-being that will inspire you to put your best foot forward and handle any challenges that come your way with grace and ease. You will leave your mat fulfilled, empowered, confident, and focused.

STEP: is an aerobic exercise that is performed by stepping onto and off of an elevated platform while doing upper body movements. The choreographed moves are done as a moderate- to high-intensity cardiovascular workout.
