Couples Yoga and Dinner
We were thrilled to host another group of members and guests looking for a fresh alternative to the usual Valentine's date. Karyna and Kristy set the mood with partner yoga and Chef Steve capped the night with a delicious three-course dinner at Studio A.M. a few doors down. We enjoy being able to offer these unique couple activities that also allow us to couple with other local businesses.
Gals untied for cycling and Barre classes. The sweat was followed by re-hydration and a great Studio A.M. brunch. We will surely find another excuse to break out the sangria again soon. These events fill quickly though so don't miss the next one!
Balance Workshop with Julie Straub
Members of all abilities joined Julie for a two-hour session focused on upping their balance games.
This was a fun one. Chef Steve knocked another meal out of the park, with sangria and wine...of course. A good time was had by all in attendance and everyone left full. Most brought a fierce appetite following class earlier that day.
Live Acoustic Yoga & Brunch with Karyna Kerin
We liked this event so much that we made acoustic yoga a weekly addition to our regular schedule. Check the class schedule and sign up early for the acoustic offerings. The class fills quickly.
Power & Press HIIT
We held another Power & Press event with Paper, Cotton & Ink but this time we started with a HIIT power workout at the studio before moving down the block to print tees and tanks. The new look gear is on display at Local Motion and can be purchased during class hours at the desk.
DJ Cycle and Beer Tasting
Did you know Erica's husband is a DJ? Well, he is, and he and Erica spent some late nights working on an epic live DJ cycling class for this event. If that wasn't enough, we teamed up with Voodoo Brewery for a beer tasting and light appetizers after the class.
Fearless Balance Workshop
"What if I fall? Oh, but my darling what if you fly?" -Eric Hanson
This 2 part workshop series was designed to take the fear out of yoga balance postures. Do you not try them in class because you think you will fall on your face? Do you think you lack the strength to try a leg or arm balance? Do you just want to learn some bad ass balances and gain confidence that you can actually do them? If you answered yes, to any of these questions, you'll have to catch the next workshop. We want to advance your practice at your pace. We'll continue to offer workshops that will expand and grow your skills.
Friday Night Workout and Dinner
It was a bella serata - or at least that's what Google told us was the Italian translation for a beautiful evening. That's no shock when the recipe was a dash of cycling followed by a healthy serving of Chef Steve's three-course Italian meal at Studio AM...bella serata.
Kids Fitness Workshop
This one was a blast. We filled the yoga room with munchkins for our Fit Kids workshop. While moms and dads were treated to a cycling session with Erica, Steph and Laura ran the little ones through a fun-filled exercise session. Sweaty smiling kids met their parents after class for a healthy snack. We hope everyone had so much fun that they didn't realize they were working out.
Bike and Brunch with Studio A.M.
Bad dancing on a bike? Check! This wild ride started with your favorite wedding songs and then our "reception" at Studio A.M. was complete with a cookie table and sangria.
Beginner Yoga Workshop
We ran through the basics in a semi-private setting over a 90-minute workshop. We taught/reviewed breathing techniques, sun salutations, standing and seated postures that help to increase strength, flexibility, and balance.
Sweetheart Yoga and Dinner
Valentine's date night! Our couples started their evening with a lighthearted partner yoga experience. When class concluded, Chef Steve and Studio A.M. had a delicious dinner waiting in our lobby that had been transformed into Homestead's newest bistro.
Galentines Day: Girl Power Yoga/Cyling and Brunch
Ever combine a power yoga or cycling session with a Studio A.M. three-course brunch that includes juice tastings from Salud Juicery? We did. This one sold out quickly and was a clear hit.
Brunch and Burn with 100.7 Star Pittsburgh
We joined fitness professionals from the area at Sing Sing and Rock Bottom in the Waterfront for delicious food, tasty drinks, and some fitness fun. We provided the yoga classes and for that day a bar was turned into a yoga studio.
Health Coaching Session- Label Reading & Guided Grocery Shopping
Laura and Kristy led a group of members through a label reading class to uncover unhealthy ingredients hiding in in our cupboards. The group took a short walk to Aldi next to shop for nutritious foods to use in a receipe shared during the event.
90'S Aerobics Dance Paaartay
We hosted a packed house in our lobby for 60 minutes of dance aerobics followed by music, snacks and some booze...some Polaroids...and a human pyramid.
Historic Steel Valley Christmas Parade
Have you ever taken a cycling class on a flatbed truck? Our cycling reindeer pulled us to a second place finish in the float competition.
Bend and Press
Before our space was complete we teamed-up with our neighbors, Paper, Cotton & Ink, to host a unique gathering at their shop. We started with yoga, and ended with refreshments and screen printing Local Motion t-shirts.
Bend and Press
Last spring and summer we held yoga happy hour parties all over Pittsburgh while our studio was under construction.
do I need to sign up for classes in advance?
It is highly recommended that you sign up for classes online prior to the scheduled class. This helps in a few ways. First, it reserves your spot so you don't have to worry about the class being full. Second, it saves time because when you arrive at the studio all we need to do is quickly check you into the class and you are ready to go. Third, you can schedule your classes for several weeks in advance to reserve your spot and keep you exercising on a regular basis.
What’s the deal with indoor cycling?
Indoor cycling has been around since the 1980s. It has become increasingly popular over the last few years with more independent studios opening. Indoor cycling is a great form of cardiovascular exercise and helps to build strength and endurance in the lower body.
What do I need to wear and bring to a cycling class?
You should wear comfortable exercise clothing and tennis shoes. Clip in bicycle shoes are not necessary, but some people prefer to use them. Bring a water bottle and a small towel. We sell water in the studio and have water fountains for refills.
What if I’ve never taken a cycling class before?
You should arrive at least 10 minutes early so that the instructor can help you get comfortable on your bike. That’s all you need to get started. The rest comes with practice.
What are the benefits of heated yoga and is it for me?
When practicing yoga in a heated room your body is able to get into postures more deeply and safely. You also sweat more than in a non-heated room, so there is an additional benefit of detoxification of the body. Heated yoga can be beneficial for anyone. If you are concerned about practicing yoga in a heated room, please contact us and we can make sure it is right for you.
What should I wear and bring to a yoga class?
You should wear comfortable exercise clothing that is breathable. Yoga practice is best barefoot, but some people prefer to keep their socks on. You should bring a mat, towel, and a water bottle. We have mats if you forget to bring yours at no cost.
What happens if I sign up for a class and can’t make it?
You can cancel your class sign-up with no penalty as long as it is at least 4 hours before the class. If you fail to cancel and don’t show up or try to cancel outside of the 4 hour time frame, your class fee is forfeited.
You must cancel within 4 hours of the class for which you are registered.
If you fail to do so, your class pack will be charged for the class or if you have an unlimited package, you will incur a $5 charge.
Class registrations and cancellations should be done ONLINE. Classes are available for pre-registration and cancelation via the website or the MindBody app. We cannot guarantee that we will receive or process your cancelation if you call us or send an email. Thank you for your cooperation in this.
