Hey Friends – in keeping with the string of new developments, this week we will be implementing a CFM yoga class! With our new and expanded facility, we plan on adding a few more programs in the near future, but one thing at a time:
As this is somewhat of a new thing at CrossFit Merced, this week’s yoga classes are FREE to members. Join us for one of two trial sessions…
This Thursday, 10am we will be meeting in the CFM main building for our first yoga session with Jane Villegas, who has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and instructing for more than 3 years.
We understand not everyone can make it at this time, so we will also be meeting at 8am on Saturday, February 6th. Anyone looking to come lift during our normal “open session” time, beginning at 8:30am, is certainly welcome, as one of our two buildings (yet to be determined) will be designated specifically for lifting during that time.
As the yoga program gains speed and more interest is developed, we will be offering a monthly “add-on” rate for members who’d like to continue with it, with prices to be announced soon.
Our hope is that many of you will join us and see the benefits of getting mobile. Here is an explanation from Jane:
“Yoga is a combination of breathing techniques, postures, and meditation. Adding yoga to your existing training techniques is proven to do amazing things; yoga improves muscular flexibility and tendon elasticity and regular yoga practice is scientifically proven to slow the rate at which DNA is lost as we age. Come to class and experience for yourself this time proven art of mindfulness and movement.
I love yoga because yoga has helped me to become a stronger person physically and mentally. I truly believe that yoga increases strength and endurance in weight training, aerobic capacity, balance and agility. I am happy to be teaching at Crossfit!”
