Group Fitness spotlights Yoga

August is a great month to try a yoga class! We are featuring All Levels Yoga as our group fitness Class of the Month. In this class, the relationship between breath and movement is explored. Participants will be guided through a sequence of familiar postures with the option to increase body awareness, range of motion, flexibility and strength. Classes are held in the BBRC Fitness Studio on Tuesdays at 12:05pm or Fridays at 11am. *The first 10 NEW participants who attend this class in August will receive a FREE Admission Day Pass to the recreation center!

Starting August 20th, come try Kids & Family Yoga for ages 4-10
1st & 3rd Sunday of each month at 11:35AM
BBRC Fitness Studio

Enjoy a relaxing and fun class with your child through yoga, partner yoga, interactive songs, games, and stories. Yoga enhances flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness as well as a child’s focus and ability to calm themselves. Parents will need to accompany their 4-5 year old children. 6-10 year olds can attend the class by themselves, but the parent/caregiver must remain in the building.

There will be no Wednesday evening Zumba classes during the month of August. Visit our website for a downloadable August Group Fitness Schedule.
