The Active Recovery program at ANCHOR life + fitness is designed to restore balance and functionality to the body and mind. With training, lifting, and everyday life, active recovery is an opportunity to slow down and listen to your body so that you can feel better, move better, and stay injury-free.
A combination of accessible postures, fundamental movements, and deep breathing. Learn to move more precisely with clear alignment instruction and modifications to fit your needs. Designed for all levels–beginners to seasoned practitioners–to increase energy and enhance overall well-being.

A dynamic class designed to improve strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health. Guided by breath, flow through a varying sequence of postures, helping you to deepen body awareness, breath awareness, and mental clarity. Modifications are offered so you can pace the class to fit your needs.
Restorative yoga is a restful practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. Restorative yoga is a completely different experience than most other styles of yoga.
Our deep stretch class is run by ANCHOR’s strength coaches and focuses on enhancing mobility to help complement the strength movements that we do in class. The movements are held for extended periods of time for a deep and relaxing stretch to restore and rejuvenate your body.
Training with Indian clubs can be thought of as gymnastics for the mind and restoration for the body. This class utilizes 1 lb. "clubs" (they look like bowling pins) to work on strength & mobility in the shoulders, grip & forearm strength, core stability, and mind/body coordination. If you’re nursing an injured shoulder or other upper body muscle, performing slow and controlled Indian club exercises is a great way to rehab. And many therapists recommend Indian club training as a way to “prehab” or prevent injuries from happening in the first place.
This class teaches a form of myofascial release that you can also do on your own, using the roller to release muscular tension without needing the help of a massage therapist. Releasing tension from your trigger points in a foam roll class also enables your muscles to stretch more easily.
Movement & Mobility
Develop awareness of imbalances and learn structurally sound and efficient movement. The practice takes basic elements of complex lifting moves, breaks them down and eventually adds load, resistance or volume when appropriate. It is not a workout for workouts sake; it is purposeful, educational and mindful mobility work aimed at opening up any areas of restriction.
