Yoga & Fitness Classes
The movement, mind focus, and body awareness required for yoga are perfect complements to climbing. We offer yoga classes regularly for members and visitors in our quiet community room overlooking Scamman Pond and the birch forest beyond. Start or finish your climbing day with a yoga class, or come in for one on your rest day!
Yoga classes are free with your entry to the gym.
Consider completing our digital waiver before visiting to make the registration process a breeze!

Hip-Hop Dance w/ Kai
Join Kai for a fun, modern, dance routine each Monday evening. The same choreography will be taught a couple of weeks in a row to help students really get the moves. All levels welcome for this fun, medium intensity work-out!
Deep Stretch w/ Nichole
Mobility and balance are the key themes of this class. Deep Stretch is a class for those who want the physical benefits of stretching without the spiritual aspect of a yoga practice. In this class, there is no pressure to remain silent; participants may socialize as they stretch and unwind throughout the class. In a series of supported positions, we strive to activate our deep tissues and increase blood flow throughout the body. This kind of stretching aids in relaxation, increased stamina, and more mobility.
Yin Yoga w/ Molly
Balance and depth are the key themes of this class. Yin is the deep, stable, and more passive side of yoga. We focus on increasing mobility and flexibility, especially in the joints and hips. In a series of supported poses (often held for a few minutes at a time) we strive to maintain a balance in sensation, activating our deep tissues and increasing blood flow throughout the body. Yin aids in deepening relaxation, increasing stamina, and maintaining mobility. For any level.
ASHTANGA INSPIRED VINYASA w/ Keiko
Breath is the key theme of this class. Breathing with “sound” heats the body, moves energy, steadies the mind, and guides movement. The practice flows through a series of postures that realigns the body and mind to find greater ease on and off the mat. Most beneficial if you are already physically active and comfortable with basic yoga postures.
Occasional (non-weekly) Classes
Alternating Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00pm
Yoga and Climb w/ Keiko
Harmony is the key theme of this class. Explore the complementary practice of combining climbing and yoga. Enhance your climbing through mindful warm-ups and stretching. This class will begin and end with yoga, focusing on body preparation and recovery. For any level climber or yogi.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga w/ Keiko
This class is perfect for all students, where you can begin your yoga practice or build on existing knowledge. You will increase your understanding of alignment and proper technique while moving through a methodically-paced sequence, with deliberate progression from one pose to the next. The class will focus on linking movement to breath in a traditional style designed to build internal heat while calming the mind. For any level.
