Class Descriptions / Instructors

Spin

Instructor: Neal Shrier

Yoga

Instructor: Susie Masters (smasters@wellesley.edu)

An energizing and rejuvenating class welcomes all levels of “yogis.” Focus on pranayama breathing with movement while creating strength and flexibility through a vinyasa flow. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Zumba

Instructor: Griselle Rodriguez Ramos (gr101@wellesley.edu)

A Zumba workout mixes body sculpting movements with dance steps derived from cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, hip hop, mambo, rumba, flamenco, calypso, and Salsaton. The routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms. It targets areas such as the glutes, legs, arms, abdominals, and the heart. A Zumba class is typically not formulaic in that instructors often add on their own music choices and choreographies to make their class presentation locally unique.
