Muay Thai Kickboxing
Instructors: Kru Nat, Coaches Giulia D’Ambrosio, Clifford Francois & James Saxa.
Designed for all levels, our Muay Thai classes include warm-ups (dynamic stretching, jump rope), bag work, pad work, technical drills, conditioning, and warm-down stretches. We value proper traditional technique, and strong, active footwork is emphasized over brute strength. Every class is safe, fun, and different—we guarantee that you won’t get bored, and will sweat like you’ve never sweat before!
If you’re a beginner, we’ll teach you all the basics of Muay Thai including all “8 weapons” (punches, kicks, knees, and elbows). If you already have experience, we’ll help you polish and hone your technique.

Recovery yoga on Mondays is a time for you to find more openness in your body. Active and passive stretching is utilized to release shoulders, lengthen backs, ease hips and bring symmetry back to the body. Postures and movements are paired with an active awareness of breath to stretch the body from the inside out. We also practice many pranayama (breathing techniques) to center the mind, slow the body, and move into our parasympathetic nervous system: great for the recovery of the mind and body between rounds.
Sunday’s Recovery Yoga is most akin to restorative or yin yoga. Students will experience longer holds in postures supported by many props for greater fascial and muscular release. This class emphasizes breath work (pranayama) and meditation as a way to find comfort in stillness as we let the body unwind and release.

This one-hour mat class will focus on the basic principles of core strength. Strengthening the deeper abdominal muscles not only provides good core support, it facilitates better balance, posture and a more efficient way of moving. Props such as foam rollers and balls will be used in the class to challenge stability in motion.
