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, a 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. 

Restorative Yoga: Join us for a restorative yoga class in Multifaith Sanctuary in St. Joseph's Hall! This class will focus on relaxation and releasing tension in the body. We will incorporate gentle movement with static, restorative postures to help your body find surrender. Don’t forget to bring a yoga mat or towel! 

Restorative Yoga is taught by: Ashley S. 

Ashley is a senior at SCU! She has spent the last 9 months living in Sun Valley, ID exploring all that the amazing mountains of Southern Idaho have to offer! She is studying Biology and Gerontology and hopes to be a Chinese Medicine practitioner and Acupuncturist to care for hospice and palliative care patients. Her passion for yoga began when she tore my ACL in a horseback riding accident in high school. Yoga was instrumental in her recovery and sparked an interest in teaching. She completed my 200-hour teacher training in the summer of 2018 and became certified to teach. She hopes that her classes offer you a place to be in a community with others and care for yourself.

Cycling with Maggie: 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 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.

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!

Zumba: Kelly works for the School of Engineering full time and is also a senior in Anthropology at SCU. She has been a fitness instructor for 12 years and incorporates a variety of musical influences and strength training into her Zumba classes. Kelly has trained Zumba instructors throughout the San Jose area and loves to give her students the freedom to feel sexy while getting a great workout. Kelly is certified in group fitness, yoga, kickboxing, and circuit training, but her favorite workout is hands down Zumba. She promises to make it your favorite too!

Zumba is taught by: Kelly G. 

This class is a total workout, combining all elements of fitness—cardio, muscle conditioning, balance, and flexibility. In this class, you will be motivated by Latin and international music with dance moves. You will alternate between fast and slow rhythms to get your full-body workout.
