Engage

Your muscles. Your mind. Your mingle.

Cardio.
Strength.
Flexibility.

All in one hour.

You won’t find the workout grind 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.

100+ DEGREE HEAT. CARDIO. STRENGTH. FLEXIBILITY.

It’s fierce. It’s addicting. It drenches you in accomplishment.

Our instructors change it up every day to keep your body guessing … and keep you motivated and coming back for more. 

HD Power Yoga Fusion

Get your fitness fix with traditional yoga poses infused with muscle-defining sequences. The faster flow will raise your heart rate, while the continuous repetition of moves accelerates your results and guarantees a sense of empowerment.

HD Power Resist

Who can resist weights? Power Resist Interval focuses on cardio, strength and core circuit training — while Power Resist Flow tops this off with yoga flows. Power Resist Strength dials up the strength training, with progressively heavier weights encouraged.

HD Power Barre

Get ready to strengthen and define your entire body. Fire up your muscles with a booty and core focus combining unique barre moves with the most results-driven exercises.

 

Sekoia Yoga

Your invitation to a vibrant multi-sensory yoga experience. A heated candlelit class that will uplift your body, mind and spirit, Sekoia's holistic approach blends vigorous vinyasa flows with eclectic music, essential oils, restorative poses and reiki.

HD Yoga Classic

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 yoga poses and flows, complete with hands-on adjustment and a relaxing Savasana.

HD Yoga with Weights/Yoga Sculpt

Yoga with a side of sculpting. You’ll perform yoga poses while holding light weights — plus you’ll get your sweat on with tried-and-true strength exercises to tone and build endurance.

POWERED BY HEAT. FUELED BY WATER. ENERGIZED BY YOU.

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.
