As the popularity of yoga continues to grow, yoga sculpt has emerged as an appealing option for yogis looking for a physically challenging and highly athletic class. Yoga sculpt adds external resistance in the form of light weights. With a basic vinyasa-style sequence as the foundation, the use of weights builds strength and endurance while also working on flexibility and breath. Other elements incorporated into class include cardio, plyometrics, and proven strength-building moves like push-ups, bicep curls, squats, and jumping jacks. In keeping with the vinyasa tradition, we keep the breath flowing the entire class to increase heart rate while sculpting all the major muscle groups. Upbeat music is also an integral element to class in order to keep the tempo and energy levels up.
This training is ideal for certified yoga instructors who currently teach or are familiar with the basic vinyasa-style format. Adding yoga sculpt to your skill set will enhance your ability to serve your students and give you the opportunity to offer a challenging yet safe class that serves as a nice compliment to more traditional yoga formats.
