YogaSpark is yoga, fired up! Every class is heated to 95 degrees, open level flow, challenging, set to amazing music, and super fun. SuperSpark is an amazing combo of all 3 of our class styles: YogaSpark, BlacklightSpark, and CandlelightSpark. We start out in regular studio lighting, but once we start moving a little faster, we flick off the lights and turn our blacklights on for a super electric vibe. You'll totally be able to zone out and move in a trance. When we are ready to slow down for the restorative section of class, we lose the blacklights and find ourselves sweetly surrounded by candlelights. It's simply the best combination of everything YogaSpark has to offer. Prepare to be transported to another place - and wear something white or neon! For this official FITWeek class, our friends at Lululemon will be providing a special something to everyone who attends - so you don't want to miss it!
