Through a unique, non-traditional approach, our yoga and fitness program explores the symmetry between climbing, yoga, movement and functional strength training.
We offer regular, weekly group training sessions and yoga classes in our recently expanded fitness facility, yoga room, & climbing hall that focus on developing physical & mental strength, endurance, mobility, & performance.
