Our bodies go through a number of changes during and after pregnancy. It is important to connect into and strengthen certain muscles groups in order to maintain health and general well being during this period. In this class we will look at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, releasing tension in targeted areas and bringing a whole new appreciation to your power house.
A full body workout that pulls out all the stops—TRX straps, dumbbells, and kettlebells—for a cardio-resistance-training combo that will fuel you all day long. The core is the foundation of all TRX movements, and this class honors that fundamental by emphasizing core engagement in every exercise, while adding high-intensity cardio bursts to improve overall aerobic condition and endurance.
Yoga + Meditation
LCD offers a variety of Hatha style yoga. Hatha marries bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of creating a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha, which simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.
The word "vinyasa" literally means "to place in a certain way." This flowing, dynamic sequence of poses – from classic sun salutations to more advanced arm balances and backbends – allows for exploration in movement and synchronizing of the breath, while building heat and strength.
Ashtanga yogis practice a prescribed set of asanas, channel energy through the body using bandhas (locks), and concentrate on singular focal points using drishti (gaze). Intensely physical and athletic, this dynamic practice incorporates many vinyasas, building heat through brisk movements that connect a set sequence of postures.
Meditation is a practice for everyone. At LCD, we harness the connection to breath in all of our classes, and especially in meditation. It is the nature of the mind to make stories; therefore, instead of pushing the mind in one direction or clearing it entirely, we cultivate a healthy and friendly relationship with it. As we grow together in harmony with the mind and breath, we deepen our understanding of our shared humanity. We breathe together, we evolve together.
