zen.CYCLE Is a 40 minute high cardio class to not only burn calories and increase strength but to get your heart to pump and work a little harder for the duration. The addition of this class to our yoga studio has given members the chance to compliment their yoga practice with this healthy heart class. Cardiovascular exercise is so important for our overall wellness as it improves heart health by getting the heart to pump at a faster rate on a regular basis. Your heart is like any other muscle, in order for it to become strong, it must be worked, if you fail to work it, it will weaken.
Other benefits of zen.CYCLE are
Low Impact (reduce the risk of injury to joints or muscles)
Increase Metabolism (as we age our metabolism begins to decrease and maintaining our weight can become more and more difficult)
Improves your hormonal profile (individuals who partake in regular cardio exercise often have a much more positive outlook on life simply because they are getting the stress-relief benefits from these hormones)
Great management of diabetes (for those who have diabetes, cardiovascular exercise helps them manage this condition. By performing the exercise you will increase your muscle's ability to utilize glucose and gain better control of your blood sugars)
zen.CYCLE combined with your regular Yoga and/or Pilates practice is your complete physical, mental and metabolic health and wellness all rolled into one little studio. All low impact, offering mental release, relaxation, and improved strength and flexibility.
