Yoga Sculpt Wednesday
January 13, 2016 @ 6:40 pm - 7:25 pm
A total body workout, Yoga Sculpt classes are set to energizing music and designed to tone and sculpt every major muscle group. This class complements your regular workouts, while boosting your metabolism and pushing your strength and flexibility to new heights. Free weights are added to create resistance and intensify each pose. Strength-training exercises such as squats, lunges, bicep curls and tricep curls are incorporated to build lean muscle mass. You will see visible results in your body.
Yoga Sculpt is packed in with plyometrics, cardio, yoga, and weight-lifting all in one hour! But there is no need to sweat it before you even walk in the room. The workout can be modified for all fitness levels, and it is a yoga class at the end of the day – the true workout comes from listening to your body and taking care of yourself.
Use two sets of weights in class – a lighter and a heavier set
Remember, weights are always OPTIONAL in Yoga Sculpt. You’ll still get a great workout without the weights. If you do choose to use them, it’s important to warm up the body with the lighter set of weights, especially when flowing through the first Sun B sequence. When working the larger muscle groups, consider using heavier weights to build muscle. Try and challenge yourself and go to your edge, but never perform an exercise if it hurts or feels uncomfortable. Proper form and technique are crucial for building lean muscle; if you are using weights that are too heavy, you risk compromising your form and could injure yourself.
Yoga Sculpt is similar to weight training and should only be done 3-4 times a week
The body needs time to recover, as you are breaking down the muscle to re-build it in a Yoga Sculpt class. A consistent Yoga Sculpt practice will be greatly complemented by our other fitness classes, such as Zumba, TRX Strength and Conditioning and TRX Stretch and Flexibility class. By switching up your workout and including a range of cardio, weight lifting and stretching, you will avoid a plateau and never get bored!
