Searching for a different type of fitness class? Look no further than the Cal Poly Recreation Center for a variety of unique classes that will challenge your body and mind.

The Recreation Center is offering six specialized classes this spring that incorporate a progressive framework to build on skills learned throughout the quarter. These classes are designed for all levels and abilities and require registration and a fee.

Classes include:

  • Acroyoga: Practice traditional yoga poses with a partner as you lift, stretch, and strengthen both your body and your personal connections with others. From the Greek akro “high” and Sanskrit yoga “union,” this class seeks to elevate and expand your mental and physical horizons.
  • Belly Dancing: Traditional Arabic belly dance taught in a fun and supportive environment. You will experience a great workout, develop body awareness, and isolate muscles you didn’t know you had through warm-ups, technique work, and combinations.
  • Krav Maga: This simple, reality-based self-defense class emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and training scenarios to build confidence, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, and core strength.
  • Muay Thai Kickboxing: This traditional form of Thai kickboxing teaches hand and foot techniques, striking, and defensive skills while providing an intense cardiovascular and abdominal workout. Muay Thai is both a physical and mental discipline, using martial arts movements to train effective fighters.
  • Shorin Ryu Karate: Develop power, speed, and self-confidence as you practice traditional self-defense, fighting, and stretching movements using real-life situations in a formal and disciplined environment.
  • TRX (total resistance exercise): In this TRX circuit-training system, you’ll leverage gravity and your own body-resistance with additional equipment, such as jump ropes and medicine balls, to experience a comprehensive full-body workout.

Try any of the above classes for free during the first week of spring quarter. For more information on fees and registration visit ASI Access
