Class Descriptions & Instructor Biographies 

Barre: This class combines attributes of Pilates, dance, and functional fitness training. In this full body workout, we integrate small isolated movements to fatigue the muscles, large range of motion to elevate the heart rate, and sequencing that incorporates the upper and lower body to make every minute count. With exercises in both the center and at the barre, this class develops strength, endurance and  flexibility. This results in a total body workout that leaves you mentally strong and feeling accomplished.

Barre is taught by: Kimber W. 

Kimber is a sophomore at SCU from Chicago, IL. She has been dancing her entire life, specifically focused in ballet. She is currently a member of the SCU dance team and Santa Clara Dance Coalition to stay on task with fitness, and she completed her barre certification through Barre Intensity Training in 2021. Kimber has always admired the discipline and empowerment that can be learned through the practice of dance, pilates and overall healthy living. 

Cycling with Lily: Anyone of all fitness levels are welcome in this class! In each class we will tackle steady climbs, fast sprints, and recovery flats while seated or standing on the bike, set with fun, new playlists each week. This workout is high-energy and will challenge your endurance. This class is 45 minutes and includes a warm-up and cool-down stretch.  

Cycling taught by: Lily G.  

Lily is a first year at SCU! She is from Northern California and has been a recreational cyclist for 10 years, including road and mountain biking. During her junior year of high school, she joined a mountain biking team, but realized that she loved the cycling community more than the competitive atmosphere. In her senior year, she had the honor of being selected as an ambassador for the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Girls Riding Together (GRiT) program. She spent a year devoting her time to introducing female-identifying students to mountain biking. This past summer, she went on a road cycling adventure to the French Alps to climb 5 of the most famous Tour de France mountain stages. She wants to make this class a fun and welcoming place for everyone of all levels. Feel free to follow her instagram account (@lily_spin) for information and updates about class.

Cycling taught by: Maggie M. 

Maggie is a sophomore at SCU from Atlanta, Georgia. She has always had a passion for fitness and helping others achieve their fitness goals. Both her parents are fitness instructors, which led her to want to follow in their footsteps. She began spinning 3 years ago and decided to get her spinning certification through Schwinn. She is so excited to start spinning at SCU!

Power Vinyasa Yoga: Power Vinyasa Yoga connects breath to movement while creating a rewarding and hard workout. We move from pose to pose – utilizing the principles of alignment, personal awareness, and breath. Classes are physically challenging and creatively designed to transform your body, inspire your practice and help practice mindfulness. Some inversions and arm balances will be offered but use your intuition and do what’s best for your practice. This class is energetically challenging, however, all yogis are welcome!! 

Power Vinyasa Yoga taught by: Julia L. 

Julia is a sophomore at SCU from Chicago, Illinois. She has been practicing yoga since she was 10 years old but realized how much of an impact it made when she spent her first year at Miami of Ohio and didn’t have the chance to practice. During the process of transferring, she received her 200-hour yoga certification and taught at a studio at home during the fall. She has always loved high-intensity sports, and is currently training for a marathon, and believes yoga plays a huge part in helping her mental and physical health while still providing a challenging workout. She hopes she can provide a space where everyone can find a community and feel mentally/physically strong when they leave. 

 

Stretching: This class includes exercises that target your muscle extensions and overall flexibility. No matter your current level of flexibility, this class improves upon your stability, restores energy, and releases built-up tension in your muscles. To support your mobility and improve both your physical and mental well-being, join this 50 minute stretch class.
