Week 1: Karma Tribe Yoga

Yoga in front of the Bond Bridge

Lauren will challenge the mind, body and spirit in an all-levels vinyasa flow class. The class can be easily scaled for all levels, from the first time practitioner to the experienced yogi. Lauren began practicing yoga in 2001, but really committed to a lifestyle change in 2013 when she went to the Costa Rican rainforest to learn from the masters at Frog Lotus Yoga. Lauren has now taught over 3,000 hours of classes. She says, “My aim is to provide a practice that is challenging, stress-relieving, focused hands-on, playful, and safe…to help you find your true self.”

Karma Tribe Yoga is a non-profit, donation based yoga studio. It is fully inclusive of all genders, races, religions and income levels, allowing students to pay what they can.

Please bring your own yoga mat.

Week 2: KC Physiques

This class will challenge participants with team fitness drills. Exercises include cardio, plyometrics, sprints, squats and more. Jesse and Laura from KC Physiques will lead the classes. Jesse spent 4 years in the Navy and uses his experiences to drive others to succeed. Laura became involved in fitness training as a new mother, with the goal to lose weight and gain self-confidence. Both decided to share their knowledge to inspire and help others and are now figure competitors and certified trainers.

KC Physiques offers personal training throughout the Kansas City area. The trainers pride themselves in customizing plans to maximize training time and meet each person’s individual goals.
