Erin Giordano is back this week for two classes; Wednesday at 6pm & Saturday morning at 9am. Her classes are sweat-inducing, work the entire body and her enthusiastic and energetic personality keeps you inspired throughout the 45-minute session!
FYI: Beginners to HIIT or any fitness classes are welcome! PROPS are not required, but hand weights and objects like blocks can be used to intensify, align and keep you working!
Get to know Erin with part two of her 'Teacher Feature'...
QUESTION: What are challenging poses for you? What pose are you looking to advance in?
ERIN: "Probably would have to say Side Crow right now. I can get in it, but I find it super challenging to maintain for more than a couple of breaths."
Q: How would you describe your classes?
ERIN: "Challenging, but very inclusive. My goal is to make people sweat, feel the burn, and work hard, but also walk away feeling supported, energized, and accomplished!"
Q: What have you missed the most from quarantine lockdown?
ERIN: "I think what I've missed the most during quarantine is twofold: being in rehearsals with my dance company, having that physical human connection, and preparing for performances; and teaching fitness classes in real time with clients who made that hour a priority of their day, where we get to feed off the positive energy and hard work in the room (thank goodness for the online community!!!)"
Q: Have you picked up hobbies/interests during lockdown?
ERIN: "Oh my gosh, is it sad that cleaning has been a consistent 'interest' of mine during quarantine? Haha but for real, some new hobbies have been cooking, biking around New York, and dabbling in sudoku puzzles."
Q: Do you like working out at night, or during the day? Time you like to practice?
ERIN: "I love starting the day out with a solid workout! I'm not typically an 'early morning person' but I find that I feel so much more energized, grounded, and ready to tackle the day afterwards. An evening yoga practice can be such an awesome way to unwind at the end of the day. I love breathing deeply and stretching it out before bed."
Q: Standing one-legged poses or arm balances? Why?
ERIN: "LOVE standing one-legged poses - reminiscent of my dancing days! Also requires a lot of abdominal engagement and support to maintain balance on one leg, which is something I appreciate."
