Alison O'Connor instructs the following:
  • Hot Power Yoga (2/3)
  • This is a vinyasa power yoga class taught in a room heated to 100-105 degrees. The heat will provide for a detoxifying sweat while you flow through an athletic and dynamic sequence of postures.

  • Figure 4 Barre (Open)
  • In this challenging program suitable for all levels, there is an emphasis on alignment, stretching, and proper technique. Instructors are hands-on and guide the class at a slower pace, making it ideal for beginners or those looking to build a stronger foundation.

  • Figure 4 Strength (2/3)
  • Using body weight and heavy resistance, larger muscle groups are worked in controlled intervals resulting in a lean body with a bonus of maximum calorie burn. Attention to technique, efficiency and recovery are the science behind transformation in this revamped Figure 4 Barre workout. Level: Advanced, 2/3, not recommended for clients with prominent injuries or are who are pregnant.

  • Pure Cross Training (PXT)

  • Figure 4 Barre (Open)
  • Created by a NYC ballet dancer and exclusively at Pure, Figure 4 is the most challenging barre experience out there, enhancing precision dance techniques with strength training. With high-energy choreography and interval cardio, Figure 4 keeps your pulse pounding while forging a lean, sculpted physique focusing on the thighs, arms, abs, and glutes.
