Cardio Drum’n

According to recent scientific research, drumming increases the development of various regions of the brain. When people are involved in drumming, they are completely immersed in what we call 'their element' or 'flow'. Because drumming is its own playful reward, people know what they are doing is achievable and they feel relaxed, completely involved, focused and able to concentrate. With this state, participants report a greater sense of well-being. It releases negative emotions and allows for increased physical stamina. Through drumming, participants have an increased awareness of their own bodies, co-ordination and kinesthetic development.  (Fee)

Vinyasa or Flow yoga is a form of moving meditation. This practice helps to decrease the ongoing chatter in the mind while promoting a calm, peaceful state.

All levels are welcome and modifications are shown to meet different abilities. Bring a yoga mat. *Mondays are intermediate level classes, and Wednesdays and Fridays are beginner level classes. (Must purchase punch cards at the front desk. Cards never expire.)
