Body Conditioning: This is a total-body workout that helps students reshape their bodies, build core strength, and lose weight using multiple exercise methods. This fun and interactive fitness class will focus on cardiovascular work, muscle conditioning and core toning. Tailored for all levels, a mat, towel, some water, and 3 - 5 lb. weights are all you need. Come join us!

Yoga Level 1 & 2: This class focuses on the classic yoga postures, alignment principles and breathing techniques. It is designed to develop body awareness, flexibility, strength, and agility. In this class students will be led through a balanced practice of yoga postures, breathing exercises, and mindfulness techniques to improve the physiological systems of the body, steadiness of mind and connection to self. Students will be encouraged and assisted in developing their own at-home practice. Suitable for all levels.

Do you want or need to take a kinder/gentler approach to getting fit?
Take one or both of our new introductory classes!

Intro to Fitness: This class is offered at a slower pace and focuses on the basics. This class uses a combination of gentle aerobic and body weight workouts with plenty of low-impact, low intensity options. Find easy and safe ways to improve your well-being in a caring and welcoming environment. All activities are modeled and modifications given to assist different levels and learning needs.

Gentle Yoga: Gentle Yoga focuses on easeful, supported poses that help rejuvenate and heal the body. This class is held at a slower pace and focuses on stretching all areas of the body, while releasing stress and tension from joints and muscles. Yoga props such as blankets, blocks and straps may be used for safe practice and to allow the body to fully achieve each position comfortably. Students recovering from illness, injury, or stress or with limitations related to age or size will benefit from this practice. Those with medical conditions, please check with your physician prior to participating.

PLEASE NOTE: These classes are provided for Alameda County employees only. Participation is not eligible for County time. County employees may use their lunch break or attend on their own time. Attendance beyond the normal lunch break shall require prior approval of an employee’s supervisor.
