Kettle Bell strength training is not about building muscle mass. It’s about increasing muscular and skeletal function, much like hatha yoga is. When you do strength work with Kettle Bells, the movements are designed to strengthen the muscles that stabilize the pelvis and spine, while working on creating open and very strong shoulders. Kettle Bell work will increase whole body strength, joint stability and endurance. Much like a hot yoga class, you will be surprised at the cardiovascular workout! Combining a Kettle Bell workout with a regular yoga practice is probably the best combination of exercise out there. Don’t be intimidated, these classes are designed with yogi’s in mind and are open to all levels of experience and strength (once you’ve completed your Intro Classes).
This Basic Kettle Bell class focuses on Strength & Conditioning. The strength component entails a full body approach using KB techniques, calisthenics, and mobility. The conditioning component focuses on metabolic conditioning after the strength portion. Both components emphasize proper form/techniques and will be challenging, yet fun for everyone no matter your skill or strength. The entire class is designed to strengthen your arms, hips, back, and legs while adding stability/mobility to the entire body. Yogis will appreciate the mind/body connection as well as the fun/challenging aspect. It is the perfect compliment all yoga practices!
