A total body workout, CorePower Yoga Sculpt classes are set to energizing music and designed to tone and sculpt every major muscle group. This class complements your regular yoga practice while boosting your metabolism and pushing your strength and flexibility to new heights. Free weights are added to the CorePower Yoga 2 (C2) sequence, creating resistance and intensifying each pose. Strength-training exercises such as squats, lunges, bicep and tricep curls are incorporated to build lean muscle mass. You will see visible results in your body. It is recommended that you take at least one CorePower level 1 or 2 (C1 or C2) class before a Yoga Sculpt class.
The first time I took this class I wasn’t sure what to think of it. I was sweating, using weights with yoga poses…it made zero sense. But I gave it another few rounds. I increased my weights and started to really understand how it can benefit the runners body. Because of the overall body workout, this sculpt class works on stabilizing muscles, glute strength and upper body strength. So, when I fatigue, I feel a difference in how I break down. I feel like I can use the strength from muscle groups that previously were not as strong, so I didn’t really know they could support me the way they do.
Depending on the teacher, you can get everything from Richard Simmons to Jillian Michaels – type teachers. Music from Dirty Dancing and Flashdance or the latest rap from Snoop Dog. Whatever the case, it generally is so entertaining that the hour goes by pretty quickly.
Modify where you need to. I never jump. Ever. I just do core or air squats. And after a year of modifying, I no longer get strange looks.
