Experience a gentle and restorative practice from the comfort of your own home. All ability levels are welcome as modifications are offered for all poses.
"I have been practicing yoga with Christiana for almost 10 years! Her way of describing the movements is almost poetic which makes me want to move my body smoothly, and she routinely provides alternative movements to assure that each of us is accommodating whatever physical issues we may be dealing with that day (difficult back, shoulder, wrists, etc.). I always feel peaceful when it is over - that my entire body has been pleasantly stretched, and that I am more nimble as a result." ~Chris Richards

"I have been doing personal training with her once a week for about 3 years. Christiana always seems happy and upbeat which helps all of us feel happy. We each select our own weights or bands or other equipment, and can work at our own level - with her guiding instruction and encouragement to gently push our limits. She regularly provides alternatives to assure individual safety. And she continually provides new exercises to keep things interesting."

HIIT Fitness Walking Class
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training, but don't let that scare you because your walking pace will be relative to your fitness level and is equally effective for beginner, intermediate and advanced walkers.
HIIT walking involves periods of higher intensity walking followed by a recovery period walking state. The more you vary the intervals, the more the body has to adapt and is less likely to reach an exercise plateau, which is common with steady state walking. This translates into better results in less time including increased speed, stamina and endurance not to mention improved cardiovascular health, revving your metabolism for hours after your workout and increased athletic performance.
This program is 100% beginner friendly yet works equally well for experienced walkers. Whether you are wanting to ease back into an exercise routine, or you've been steady state walking for a while and want to up level your workout , with HIIT walking you will learn an effective way to shave minutes off your miles and your workout time as well as tone up and burn extra calories.
The other benefit is that HIIT walking is much gentler on your joints and body than other forms of cardio yet is equally, if not more effective!

"HIIT WALKING with Christiana through this “Zoom “ class protocol has been easy to set up and more effective and fun than I first thought it would be. After doing this for two months my legs are stronger and my breathing is a better, which was my goal. And we are Outside!" ~ A. Porter
