CorePower Yoga - Yoga Sculpt

corepower yoga-sculpt-heated-nyc

TL;DR

CorePower Yoga’s Yoga Sculpt class is 60 min sculpting sweat fest that combines yoga and strength-training with a sprinkle of cardio in a 90-97 degree room. This class works the entire body leaving you refreshed, centered, and drenched in sweat.

Book Me

  • Classpass:❌

Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes + barefeet.

  • 60 mins.

  • Mats are required. Bring your own or rent one for $2. Towels are also available for rent for $2.

  • Expect to sweat - the room is heated to 90-97 degrees.

  • The class begins w/ a “yoga-ish” warm-up and quickly transitions to a weighted workout incorporating yoga moves with traditional strength exercises (like push ups, bicep curls, glute exercises). Yoga Sculpt concludes w/ a much-appreciated Shavasana.

  • Expect short bursts of cardio exercises midway through class.

  • Heavier on sculpting vs. the yoga.

 Hard AF?!

  • Challenging - especially due to the heat (it takes a couple of sessions to get used to).

  • The class doesn’t have a ton of cardio, but your heart rate will still elevate bc of the heat.

  • The yoga moves aren’t complex.

Vibe

  • The studios are “earthy” and simple. A bit generic.

  • The teachers are knowledgeable and the class flow is, for the most part, standard from teacher to teacher.

  • For the specific class I took, the instructor didn’t wear a mic and was hard to hear over the music.
