Thursday Night Yoga

Be a part of Intrepid’s first Yoga class held right here at our gym! This Thursday night at 7pm Yoga instructor Lauren Leilani will host a Power Yoga session from 7-8pm. Sign up online by purchasing a single class for $15 or a 10 Yoga Class Punch Card for $120.  Bring you own yoga mat, block, and straps if you have them, but if not we’ll have some available to borrow.

The practice of Yoga can help in so many different ways.  Better mobility, improved balance, more efficient breathing mechanics, better stability and posture as well as helping you unwind and enhance your self-awareness both physically and emotionally. More background information about Vinyasa Yoga and Power Yoga can be read here.

Lauren teaches regularly at Yoga Vista as well as other studios around the Southbay.  Growing up she was involved in many activities:  a gymnast, a swimmer, a tennis player, a pianist and eventually turned into a runner and loved hitting the weights.  Over time though, all of those things because chores rather than a passion.  Yoga is the only thing that has held her attention for 7 years and she just can’t seem to get enough of it.  I’m working on getting her into one of our CrossFit classes too.  Read more about her on the Intrepid Coaches page, and here’s more of what she has to say about her teaching approach:

“I’m here to share my love and passion for yoga with you both on and off the mat.  With that being said, I realize that the goal of each practitioner is different.  Explaining poses in detail and watching each student grow is what I love so much about teaching.   My teaching style is Power Vinyasa Flow based.  I offer basic through advanced versions of poses with many opportunities to arm balance or hand balance.  The best part of the asana practice is that there is always something to work on.  Prior to moving further in any standing or balancing pose, it’s important to have a strong foundation.  I like to work on that first then move forward to ensure you’re muscularly engaged and not relying on ligaments and tendons which will lead to injuries down the road.”

I’m excited to have her working with us and hope to make Thursday Night Yoga a mainstay here at Intrepid.  Whether you want to improve your mobility, your posture, your breathing, strengthen your core, get into a handstand, or just try something new, be a part of our Thursday Night Yoga here at Intrepid Athletics.

    Nice!! Will she be able to help some one as new to Yoga and inflexible as a granite countertop as me? This will also reduce my stress of trying to find a yoga place if she can help.
