MEL-O-YOGA Class Descriptions

Strengthen & Lengthen

Strengthen & Lengthen classes are appropriate for participants of varying yoga experience (from beginners to well seasoned) as long as there are no acute injuries.

Warm Power Flow

Warm Power Flow classes are heated to ~80 degrees & tend to move at a quicker pace and incorporate more movement than Strengthen & Lengthen classes.
