Whether it means back to school or picking up pumpkin spice on the way to work, it’s officially fall. The days might be getting shorter and darker, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make time for fun activities with our friends and family. There’s plenty of themed fun to be had, from pumpkin patches to apple picking to scary movie nights, but between walks in the nippy air and stress-inducing haunted houses, it might also be a great time to calm your mind in the infrared-heated rooms at Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. If you’re looking for something to do this season, why not try one of our suggested workout class and seasonal activity pairings? There’s something to fit every fall mood.
For the Scary Movie Newbie
So you’ve finally given in and agreed to join in on a horror movie marathon with your friends, but are fully prepared to be scared out of your mind? Make plans to meet up mid-day to complete your scary movie screening while the sun’s still shining, and then come on over to Oxygen Yoga & Fitness to work all the nerves out of your body. Try Hot Fast & Furious Fusion to throw your full focus into a hard-core Pilates-style workout and hopefully, you’ll have forgotten all about the scary film by the time you get home.
For the Fashion Forward Friend
There’s no better season for fashion than fall, so why not take the opportunity to do some thrifting or back-to-school shopping? Gather up some friends and spend an afternoon browsing or even window shopping at your local boutiques, and then refresh yourself from your day of shopping with some breathwork in Hot Yoga Freedom Flow. In our freedom flow classes, you’ll focus on breath control as you flow from pose to pose, giving you the opportunity to recharge and reconnect with your body while getting in some post-shopping stretching and strengthening.
For the Spooky Season Devotee
If spooky season is your favorite season because of all the dark and scary things that accompany it, then why not lean into that aesthetic in your workouts to? Start off your night clearing your mind in Hot Candlelight Deep Stretch & Relaxation, where you can work through your flows and stretches blanketed in heat and surrounded by candles. Then see what your town offers in terms of ghost tours or haunted houses to give yourself a scare.
For the Pinterest Perfect Day
If you’re hoping to finish your fall afternoon with some seasonal pictures of you and your friends, where better to go than the pumpkin patch. Posing with hay bales and pumpkins and gourds is a classic for a reason. Lean into the autumnal themes and leave with some pumpkins in your trunk. But before stopping home to carve up some jack-o-lanterns, stop by the studio to warm up with some Hot Box Fusion. This class mixes kickboxing, fusion, core, cardio, and shadowboxing and is a great chance to bond and get strong alongside your friends.
For the Autumnal Refresh
If your favorite part of fall is the reminder it brings to refresh and refocus on your end-of-year goals in the last couple of months of the year, why not treat yourself to a seasonal drink like hot apple cider while taking some time to yourself to write down your goals, dreams, manifestations, plans, and desires for the rest of the year. Then, get a head start on them by recommitting your focus to your favorite workout class at Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. Or, if you don’t have a favorite yet, try a fan favorite like Hot Yang Yin Yoga.
