Looking back on the day that I first walked into VIBE5, I honestly didn’t have any idea what to expect. I hadn’t been to a yoga class, or any class for that matter, since COVID-19 hit us so it had been a while for me. Let me start off with how incredibly nice everyone was at VIBE5! This is the type of place where you look forward to working out. Everyone, the staff and the people joining the class, were smiling and genuinely looked excited to be there. You know how you have to drag yourself to some places, and you’re really not looking forward to being there? Well don’t worry, because this is not one of those places at all!
I took a Strong VIBE5 class with Virginia Saylor. The only type of yoga I’ve done before was the gentle and relaxing kind, so I was excited to try something new.
And this class did not disappoint! If you are looking for a workout that is upbeat, incorporates yoga AND strength training, then this is the one for you. We used dumbbells, bands, and sliding pads for a full body burn that left me feeling very energized (and a little sore). Virginia made the workout suitable and fun for all ages and fitness levels by providing modifications to each exercise, and having a variety of weights and resistance bands for everyone’s liking.
VIBE5 was honestly just what I needed to make me push myself harder than usual, and a big part of that was Virginia because she motivates you to keep going. I’m not going to lie and say it wasn’t hard, because it was definitely challenging. But in a good way! It was the feeling of knowing that I had a great workout while also having fun and enjoying it that will make me go back to VIBE5.
