Yoga and Mind/Body

Sweat it out or go with the flow. Connection is key.



 

 

Yoga and Mind/Body at CAC

Yoga is grounded in an ancient meditation system using breath as a means to connect the mind with the body. Our highly-experienced Chicago yoga instructors teach poses, postures and movements from gymnastics and martial arts, and different forms of meditation to enhance your flexibility and strength. Our yoga professionals also assist you with control and mind-body connectedness.  The Chicago Athletic Clubs yoga classes are the same as what you might expect from a traditional yoga studio, but with the added perk of full gym access. When you step into our gym's yoga area, you access a space where it is all about you, giving you a chance to focus on your breathing, your practice, and your mind/body connection. Who doesn't love that? View our offered yoga classes below, and consult the schedule of your local Chicago Athletic Club location to get started.

Class Types

Ashtanga Power Yoga

This vigorous method of yoga involves synchronizing breath with a progressive sequence of postures to help build strength, flexibility and detoxify the body. Progress is easily assessed because the sequence is always the same.

Gentle Yoga

This yoga class offers a slower pace that is gentler on the joints. All levels are welcome.



Qi Gong

Qi Gong is an ancient system of simple movements designed to stimulate the body's natural energy flow promoting balance and healing. The meditative quality of the movements helps one relax and breathe deeply, enhancing the sense of well-being.

Stretch

Dynamically increase your flexibility. Create more space and less tension in the body with passive and active stretching designed to increase muscle length.



Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissue (yin) rather than muscle (yang). Poses are held for longer periods of time, with support from blocks, in order to accomplish the proper stretching of connective tissue and increased flexibility of the joints.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

This dynamic and physically demanding style of yoga is energetic and heating, as it flows from one pose to the next in a seamless Vinyasa. Great for building stamina and strength. Experience meditation through movement, as opposed to seated meditation.

Yoga (Beginner)

An ideal introduction to yoga, the pace of this class is slower and gives more detailed explanations of moves, postures, alignments and breath. Learn the fundamentals and structural foundation of each position.



Yoga (Multi-Level)

This class allows for a variety of experience levels from beginner to advanced. The instructor challenges the skill level of each participant. Students are encouraged to work at their own capacity and build their yoga practice slowly over time.



Yoga Sculpt

Yoga Sculpt is a modern form of yoga that combines Vinyasa Yoga, strength training, cardiovascular fitness and core work. This yoga class uses weights to strengthen the practice, while helping tone and shape the body. Burn calories, build stamina, increase strength and flexibility and increase lean muscle mass.
