Do you love the environment and convenient downtown location of Keene Yoga Center, but find yourself wanting to incorporate something new into your routine? Want to try out some non-yoga classes in a familiar environment? Keene Yoga Center has a variety of class offerings beyond yoga throughout the week, including several dance options and new Zumba and TRX classes!
First of all, what isZumba? It’s an aerobic, dance-based form of exercise set to energetic music. If you love to get moving, this is a great class to try! Zumba classes are offered at Keene Yoga Center on Mondays from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM and on Saturdays from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM. You’ll need a pair of indoor-only shoes for this one, so plan accordingly.
TRX, another new offering at Keene Yoga Center, is suspension training, a form of resistance training. It helps to build flexibility, balance, and strength– and in this way is not unlike yoga! This class also requires indoor-only shoes. Keene Yoga Center currently offers TRX from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday evenings.
Interested in exploring dance in a free-form, community-based way? You’re in luck! Joy Moves Dance is offered at KYC on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:50 AM to 9:50 AM. Joy Moves is a dance improvisation group which is accessible to anyone of any ability. KYC also offers JourneyDance on Wednesday mornings from 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM. JourneyDance is a unique form of movement, intuitive and imaginative, and unlike any other class you’ve ever been to!
For something really different, you may also want to attend the First Friday Expressive Dance featuring Live Music by the Landis Twins on March 1st from 7:30 to 9:00 PM.
So if you’re looking to broaden your horizons and explore new opportunities for movement, remember that KYC offers many classes beyond yoga!
