Class Descriptions

50/50 Yoga Pilates classes fuses lower-body strength through standing pilates exercises while integrating core-strengthening through vinyassa yoga poses. This class is suited for those looking for a total body workout while achieving a balanced mind-body experience and reinforced pilates principles.

A great all-levels class for those who wish to move their bodies and relax deeply. This class will be slower paced and softer than a power class, however it still focuses on strength, endurance, balance and flexibility. This class incorporates sun salutations and juicy stretches with an emphasis on calming the body and mind. Basic yoga postures are combined with regulated breath and performed in a systematic and accessible manner. This class helps reduce stress, increase energy, stretch, strengthen muscles and encourages you to breathe more freely and fully.

Pilates is designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles, creating a toned and lean look. Pilates improves posture, flexibility and balance. Core exercises are emphasized, and you will definitely feel the burn!

Fun and appropriate for all levels of skill for yoga. Flow Yoga places an emphasis on moving through postures while synchronizing your breath and movement, this class will develop core strength, breath awareness and improve your spine's alignment.

Get ready to breathe and sweat! An energetic class that starts by heating the body up with sun salutations, followed with a creative flow of standing, balancing, seated, and twisting poses, with optional inverted poses in the mix too. Vinyasa-powered, flowing from pose to pose by connecting each movement with breath. A mellow cool down at the end to savasana. Definitely a challenging class!

Gearing up for Gladiator

Put on your helmet, armour, and shield, grab your sword, and channel your inner Russell Crowe… because on Thursday, January 18th GLADIATOR 2018 will be taking over the Student Rec Centre! (then take all of that ridiculous stuff off because you won’t need it).

 

 

Gladiator is probably UBC Rec’s wackiest annual event, chock-full of out of the ordinary activities meant to challenge your body and mind while making you laugh.

Remember what it was like to be a kid, jumping on bouncy castles and playing with those huge rainbow tarps? Imagine that much fun, but for adults and featuring a competitive twist.

 

 

This year’s Gladiator will feature…

 

a Maze competition where team members are sent into an inflatable maze one at a time to retrieve clues that will help open a locked box!

 

a competition to see who can get more dodgeballs into nets while watching out for a giant (padded) rotating arm!

 

a brain teaser game where players must memorize and recreate a pattern!

 

a tennis ball shooter game, where one team shoots tennis balls at the 

other team’s players as they try to collect scattered puzzle pieces!

 

a timed obstacle course each member of the team will have to participate in!

 

 

AND this year’s theme is Survivor, so turn on the TV and get training!

 

If these games sound as fun to you as they do to me, you’d better hurry and register a team before January 15th 2018. Each team must have 6-10 people, with the Co-Rec ratio of less than 50% self-identified men. Don’t forget to click “attending” on our Facebook event!

 

Free Week | January 8-14, 2018

Kickstart your 2018 by sampling over 100 of instructor-led classes for free! UBC Recreation welcomes students, staff & faculty, and the general public to this week-long event at no cost. Try as many classes as you want, from January 8 to 14, and register for your favorites!
