Yoga-18Yoga is a powerful and highly effective fitness regimen that promotes relaxation, restoration, and overall health. At LivAwareMD, a variety of yoga classes and programs soothe your spirit, mind and body, and help you on your journey to wellness. Private or small group classes can be scheduled for those with a specific focus in mind: yoga for beginners, therapeutic and restorative yoga, meditative yoga for stress management, and yoga geared toward the relief of chronic pain and back pain. Regularly scheduled weekly classes include:

  • Gentle Yoga - Explore the ancient healing practice of yoga, combining body, mind, and spirit in this gentle, beginner-focused class. Instructor Karri Bukant has been teaching yoga for over nine years. All levels are welcome. Participants should be able to move from lying down to a standing position without assistance. Although yoga is known for promoting healthy backs, participants should already possess good back health. The first four weeks are free. $10/class thereafter.
  • Vinyasa Yoga – Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. This flow class is action-packed to make sure you tap into each major muscle group of your body. Moving through a combination of standing and seated postures, you will lengthen the muscles that tend to tighten during long hours of sitting. Open to all levels. Modifications will be demonstrated for beginners, while seasoned practitioners are welcome to express their practice to its fullest.
  • Athletic Yoga – Set to mellow, modern music, these classes integrate movement, strength, and breathing work to help athletes excel. While designed with athletes in mind, anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility, stamina, and power through yoga can benefit from these classes.


TRX_Training-9TRX suspension training was developed by Navy SEALs to improve strength, balance, flexibility, and core stability. Suspension training is a form of resistance training that includes bodyweight exercises in which a variety of multi-planar, compound exercise movements can be performed. This highly flexible system allows for hundreds of different exercises for people of all ages and fitness levels. TRX spares your joints the impact of running and weight-lifting, and because TRX uses gravity and your own body weight, you can increase or decrease resistance just by changing your position. With a backdrop of upbeat music, TRX classes are 60 minutes of intense physical conditioning rotating through various muscle groups to provide a total body workout.



Experienced and specially trained instructors help you open up your joints for improved flexibility, less stiffness, and a decreased risk of injury during physical activity. Perfect for athletes, older adults, and people of all ages who want to feel more limber and energetic! Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is an effective therapeutic treatment for both deep and superficial fascial (muscle tissue) release, restoring proper fascial planes for optimal physiologic functioning. Performing an Active Isolated Stretch of no greater than 2 seconds allows the target muscle to optimally lengthen without triggering the protective stretch reflex and subsequent reciprocal antagonistic muscle contraction.



Body Alignment

Stretching_LauraDugan-29Balance is essential in every area of your life, including your body. Using the principle of “tensegrity” (tension & integrity), we can pinpoint the true source of pain and discomfort. For example, an unrecognized, dysfunctional movement pattern of your ankle can affect your shoulder and neck. We teach you the exercises to maintain functional alignment that will get you balanced and thriving.
