The culture of the FIT LAB

The FIT LAB is a fitness facility that has been termed 'Boutique Fitness'.  Don't let the word boutique lead you to think the FIT LAB is all frilly and no sweat!  Quite the opposite is true. Our culture is one of comadarie, empowered training in several venues and all of it...even barre is a challenge.  Shaking quads will prove it. :)  All instructors carry national certs and live to give our clients a challenging workout.

Creating a Vinyasa

Vinyasa can be described as a linked series of postures. Typically in a vinyasa one strings the postures on the breath like beads, and the flow will repeat a series between longer holds at specific points in the chain.

A Little Background 

Making time for a home practice

Yoga before mommyhood is competely different from yoga after mommyhood. No more running out th door to get to whatever class I can hit. No more staying at the studio after hours to get my practice in, regardess of time. These days, my yoga mat is often covered with stuffed animals and Dora blanket.  Ashtanga yoga is my main practice, and I've always had a home practice, but it's getting harder and harder to fit everything in a day, and get more than five hours of sleep.
