HIGHER DEGREE FITNESS

ENGAGE IN A HIGHER DEGREE OF FITNESS.

 

Step inside the doors of Engage and you’ll know you’re in a fitness studio of a higher caliber. First, you’ll immediately feel at home in our open, inviting lobby that’s perfect for mingling before and after class. Then you’ll notice how dark and spacious our workout studio is, making you feel anything but self-conscious. 

You’ll also notice the temperature is set at a higher degree — ideal for increasing the pliability of your muscles, boosting your heart rate, enhancing mental focus and ensuring a cleansing sweat. And you’ll notice the music is different too, with every empowering and energizing playlist making your workout just fly by. 

But the ultimate engagement starts once class begins. Whether you’re taking one of our hot yoga, fusion, barre or resistance classes, you’ll never just go through the motions. You’ll feel every muscle contract with every movement you make and every sequence you complete. And you’ll be inspired to really think about what you’re doing and actually see it in your mind’s eye.

The best part? At the end of class, you’ll not only feel drenched in accomplishment — you’ll feel a sense of connection with all those fitness warriors around you. And as you leave, you might even find yourself exchanging a few knowing looks that say: Tomorrow? Yep, back for more.


First class is always FREE!

Engage

Your muscles. Your mind. Your mingle.

Cardio.
Strength.
Flexibility.

All in one hour.

The workout grind isn’t welcome at Engage. Our higher degree studio is about making sure you get the most out of every movement, because life's too short for a half-hearted workout.  

We also know that carving time in your day can be challenging. So we make sure that every class gets your heart rate up and helps you build strength and flexibility in one power-packed hour. (And we even throw in balance for good measure.) 

Some moves may be slower and more deliberate, some may be faster and taken up a degree. But there’s one thing you can always count on: we’re constantly changing up moves and sequences to keep things fresh (and keep your body guessing) — so no two classes are ever the same.

Our Higher Degree (HD) classes are designed to give you highly defined results. And they're taught for every experience level.

HD Slow Burn Yoga

Sometimes you just need to slow your yoga down a bit. But that doesn't mean you won't work hard in our mindful, muscle-engaging Slow Burn class. Every single move is performed purposefully — focusing on impeccable form, longer and more deliberate holds, and deeper strength building. It's the perfect blend of calming and challenging ... with an intense focus that leads to a heightened body and breath awareness, and that tight, sculpted look you love.

HD Power Yoga Fusion

Thinking chants and chiming bells? Think again. Power Yoga Fusion takes your workout up a degree. You’ll find favorites like Down Dog, Warrior, Plank, Crescent and other popular poses. But we also infuse this class with other muscle-sculpting sequences to accelerate your results. The intensity and fast flow will get your heart rate up, while the continuous repetition of moves guarantees that satisfying soreness the next day. 

HD Power Resist

Wanting weight work? Get ready for a high-powered workout using hand weights, plus lots of body-weight resistance moves like planks and pushups. Power Resist Interval features circuit training focusing on fat-burning cardio, strength and core combinations — while Power Resist Flow tops this off with yoga flows to really get the heart rate up. And Power Resist Strength dials up the strength training, with progressively heavier weights strongly encouraged.

HD Power Barre

Definitely not your ordinary barre. This class lives up to its name and then some. Get ready to raise your rear, get those legs shaking and fire up your muscles. Smaller repetitive movements sculpt in an intensely good way. And larger dynamic movements (think lunges and squats with arm raises) are also included to increase your heart rate. To add to the sweet burn, mini exercise balls and hand weights are often incorporated.

Sekoia Yoga Developed by Yoga on High, Sekoia is your invitation to a vibrant multi-sensory yoga experience. You'll love how this heated candlelit class will uplift and energize your body, mind and spirit. Sekoia's holistic approach blends vigorous vinyasa flows with eclectic music, essential oils, meditation, restorative poses and reiki. All of these elements are richly woven into themed classes that will restore balance and awaken a deeper inner connection.

HD Yoga Classic I and II

Perfect if you're new to our studio, yet also a favorite with our more seasoned students. Yoga Classic emphasizes practicing to your personal limit with traditional strength poses and flows, complete with energizing music and a relaxing Savasana. Ready for the next level? Yoga Classic II features the same clear instruction and careful attention to alignment you know and love — but with even moreinvigorating, flowing sequences to boost your stamina and heart rate.

HD Yoga with Weights Prefer your yoga with a side of sculpting? Here, you’ll be performing traditional yoga poses while holding light weights in each hand. (Reverse Warrior and Chaturanga are a totally different experience with the added oomph of weights.) Plus, you’ll be getting your sweat on with favorite moves like lunges, squats and shoulder raises. Clear cues and demonstration make you extra mindful of your form, while the addicting heat makes for a class you won’t want to miss.

Because our studio is heated, you’ll want to bring plenty of water — as well as a larger towel to place over your mat and a smaller one to use on your face and hands during class.

HD Bootcamp Yoga Can a mountain pose and a mountain climber co-exist? We say yes. Bootcamp Yoga features more metabolism-cranking cardio than any other class — and it comes into play in a let’s-do-this kind of way. To take your sweat session up a notch, high-rep strength training targets muscle endurance. Plus, traditional yoga flows provide the perfect beginning, middle and end … leaving you feeling like the empowered, well-balanced warrior you are.
