Fall Clubs start October 2nd and run through December 15th
Yoga Club ($25; Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday): This club is a great place for students to learn about the benefits of yoga. They will be able to learn and participate in stretching routines, which are beneficial for calming the heart and mind as well as increasing flexibility and stamina. The instructor is a long-time yoga practitioner and was trained in India at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Yoga mats will be provided to anyone who needs one.
Total Wellness ($25; Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday): In this class, you can expect to indulge in an instructor-led workout designed to enhance your physical fitness and relax your body and mind. We will focus on different styles of exercise from plyometrics to HIIT (high intensity interval training), boot camp to cardio kickboxing, weight lifting to indoor cycling. Each class will focus on a specific exercise style for 20-30 minutes, and then we’ll spend the rest of the time performing a variety of stretches, deep breathing exercises and guided meditation in order to finish the school day with a calm, reflective, meaningful purpose to care for ourselves and others.
Spoken Word/Hip Hop ($25; Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday): A class facilitated by Mr. Roberts, spoken word poetry and hip hop/verse are very similar and involve the art of public speaking. The class will teach the fundamentals of public speaking, the ideology behind spoken word performances, as well as a history of hip hop and the struggles to make it an accepted form of art.
Book Club ($25: Wednesday only): Facilitated by Ms. Austin, students will have time to read and prepare for meaningful discussions with their peers on books they choose. The first book will be announced soon.
5K Club (Free; Monday and Wednesday): Please join our 5K Club from 4:15pm to 5pm on the Manual track- all you need are comfortable shoes – how easy is that? It is a time to connect with others and get the blood flowing and achieve a goal of finishing a 5k race in November in City Park with students and staff members cheering you on!
