Class Review: I attended Yoga Sculpt in the West Loop the other night because I was craving some heat. In my opinion, sculpt is one of the most challenging classes. Bringing heat, weights and cardio together it can literally be impossible.
For those of you who have never been to Yoga Sculpt, imagine basic C1 yoga on steroids. It combines weights, body movements (burpees, squats, push-ups), cardio and a million chaturangas for a total body workout that you frankly may have to leave the room for. Although the workout is great, every teacher has a different flow and style.
Instructor Review: When class started, the flow was slow and I didn’t know whether Dani would be the type of teacher I liked. As class continued, I was pleasantly surprised as each move pushed me to my limit. My heart rate was high and sweat was dripping off of me, but Dani had such a positive energy that helped me stay energized and motivated to keep moving. After class, I felt SPENT but in a good way. I would definitely consider Dani’s class to be one of the harder sculpt sessions (advanced-beastmode level).
Extras: CorePower studios are literally everywhere and many of the classes are available through Class Pass. Your first week at Core is free, and so is your second if you buy a mat. Rental mats are purchased for $2 and towels for $1. The West Loop location also has easy to find parking outside.
