Yoga is Coming…

Yoga is coming…

Have you met Marty yet? He joined Rise Farmington Hills about a month ago and is an owner in 90 Degrees North Yoga with another one of our great friends, Laura Tropea.

Marty has loved the gym so far and we’ve loved having him here! Anyways, people keep asking him about yoga. Which is awesome, because we really love us some good yoga. And, we know it can have a major positive impact on the lives and fitness of our athletes here at Rise.

So, Marty has offered to run 2 classes/week at Rise Farmington Hills as a trial run, through November and December, to see if there is a good rate of adoption.

If it sticks well for 8 weeks, we will reach out to the local yoga community and attempt to get someone teaching yoga 2x/week at Ferndale in the New Year as well.

The best news?

Yoga will be FREE to all current members at either gym. This trial run only has classes at Farmington Hills, as that is Marty’s home gym and much closer to where he lives, but if this trial run is successful we will work to get a similar program in place at Ferndale ASAP.

If you’re not a member but would like to drop in on one of our yoga classes, we’d love to have you join us! Usual drop-in rates will apply.

A bit about Marty…

Marty is a part owner at 90 Degrees North Power Yoga with another mutual friend, Laura Tropea. We love Laura and that’s actually how Marty came to learn about our gym! (Thanks Laura! :))

Anyways, Marty has a bunch of certifications. If you’re interested, here they are:

Yoga Alliance RYT200

200Hour Teacher Training with 90 Degrees North Power Yoga.

Baptiste Institute Training:

Level One: Journey Into Power Training w/ Baron Baptiste.

Level Two:The Sannyasin’s Journey Training w/ Paige Elenson of the Baptiste Institute.

A bit about 90 Degrees North

They have have 2 locations in Milford and South Lyon, MI and were founded on the ideal that a strong community is the foundation for living an inspired life.

They believe that every day we wake up to the possibility of living from our True North.  A chance to be in alignment both physically & mentally; the opportunity to grow beyond what we know ourselves to be.  In their space there is no finish line. There are no medals.

Give me the deets!

Classes will begin on November 1st and will run for 8 consecutive weeks on this trial run.

There will be two weekly class times, and you’re welcome at either or both!


7:45 – 8:30 pm
