Alchemy 365 is bringing yoga and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to Blue Moon RiNo this Saturday. This fifty-minute all-levels strength-training class is a good introduction to Alchemy 365’s programming and is being taught in conjunction with WEL, which offers a full spectrum of wellness care. WEL’s services include physical therapy, physiology and community behavior. Throughout the workout — a signature “A20” Alchemy 365 class — attendees will undergo an intro with movement coaching and modifications, a yoga-inspired warmup, a twenty-minute HIIT section, and another yoga sequence to cool down. Post-workout, attendees can indulge in free movement alignments from WEL. Visit the Facebook event page for more information on both companies.
