Want your class to be the hottest in town? FlowLIFT 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 cardiovascular floor exercises. LIFT sets itself apart from other yoga sculpt classes by 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.

UpLIFT Membership

Learning doesn’t end with teacher training. After certification teachers are eligible to sign up for the instructor monthly support (UpLIFT Membership), which includes access to two full length master classes complete with written choreography, playlists, and marketing materials. The UpLIFT membership also gives teachers free access to the regular FlowLIFT membership, with an additional four classes a month (6 classes total). Founders Amanda and Carolina want to make teaching easy for their instructors, so they provide all the tools needed to become the best teacher possible. Leave it to them to research new moves, come up with creative sequences, and design perfect classes from start to finish. Planning a flawless class takes a lot of time and effort, and the two founders spend countless hours every week designing effective and fun moves that people love. As UpLIFT members, teachers get the full class package and all they have to do is watch the videos and use them to lead their own classes. Teachers can also use these videos as inspiration for your own creations or use the class print-out to help them remember the sequence while they teach.
