Circuit Of Change’s yoga-infused fitness classes build a community of peaceful workout warriors and have been featured on Well+Good NYC. Fueled by meditation and focused on empowerment, group workouts inspire participants to cultivate healthier habits as they melt calories and tone muscles. One-hour mind-body boot camps alternate energizing plyometrics with yoga asanas that conjure calm and keep third eyes averted from belly-dancing pudding cakes. Teeming with poses that boost strength, flexibility, and focus for students of all ability levels, Circuit Power Yoga routines sculpts arms, abs, and hips as they shift metabolisms into high gear. The teachers also pepper the class schedule with Kickbox and Full Body Fusion classes.
Students kick off their shoes as they enter the zen-inspiring studio flooded with natural light, and lined with a candle-filled fireplace and plants as green as a lime-flavored dollar bill. The studio also offers a free book club, meditation workshops, and other mind-body events.
Circuit of Change
While deepening his yoga and meditation practice in Thailand, Circuit of Change founder Brian Delmonico was inspired to create an exercise program that could both dramatically strengthen the body and bring balance to the mind. The result is Mindbody Bootcamp, an intense workout that weaves together elements of several varied disciplines, including yoga, core training, kickboxing, and primal movements. Participants burn serious calories while toning their entire body, improving their strength and flexibility, and finding zen through movement. Each workout pushes physical and mental limits, challenging participants to move in brand new ways so that they are never bored and never reach that dreaded fitness plateau. Those new to fitness shouldn't be intimidated, though: whether you are in great shape or have never worked out at all, the community motivates individuals to find balance in life and the focus to exceed personal training goals.
This innovative mix of Eastern and Western techniques has caught the attention of the New York Times and New York magazine, which named Circuit of Change's workout the Best Zen Bootcamp in 2012. The studio has also received praise from mindbodygreeen.com, Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and the New York Daily News.
The Circuit of Change New Paltz studio has texturized bamboo flooring, bathroom and shower, and large garage style windows that let in ample natural light. The building is located right in the heart of the village on Main Street, behind the jeweler and hair salon.
