HIGH-INTENSITY BOOTCAMP

Kickstart your morning with a high-intensity bootcamp you can do from home. Build core strength while pushing beyond your comfort zone and past your mental and physical limitations—all to some heart-pumping jams. The workout will be centered around using body weight, so no equipment needed. (For those looking for an extra challenge, be sure to bring your dumbbells.) Leave with some new EMS friends, and a boost of energy to carry you through your day of learning.

MORNING YOGA AND MEDITATION

For our West Coast early risers (and our East Coast friends on “quarantine time”), start your day a little sweaty and a lot more centered while you get to know other EMS attendees. Professional yoga instructors will guide you through a combination of postures and poses to help you stretch and strengthen. We’ll end with a quiet meditation to help you forget your inbox (for a few minutes, anyway). All skill levels are encouraged and welcome.
