Up Dog Yoga and Cycling
Up Dog Yoga and Cycling founder Meaghan Kennedy Townsend believes that “each of us is powerful, if only you have the courage to feel it.” She helps her students find that courage by keeping her fitness classes small, allowing instructors to individualize attention, and tailoring separate programs for beginner to advanced students. Meaghan also applies her knowledge of yoga disciplines including Vinyasa flow, Iyengar, and Hatha to develop a widely varied course curriculum.
The Up Dog facility also boasts a team of Johnny G Spinning–certified instructors that conducts its courses on Schwinn IC Pro stationary cycles, which are compatible with both SPD and Look pedals and guaranteed not to get cyclists roped into a newspaper route.
