Want your class to be the hottest in town? Flow Lift is an innovative new yoga with weights fitness class that turns you into a strong, lean machine. Get challenged in a whole new way with influences from yoga, pilates, weight lifting, and aerobic exercises. Lift sets itself apart from other yoga sculpt classes! Using light ankle and hand weights, students move through fun flows packed with lunges, squats, and creative combination moves that target the abs, booty, arms and legs simultaneously. A high-octane mix of hip-hop and dance music fuels the class through a 45-minute session that leaves students drenched in sweat and sore in all the right places.
