I offer a variety of yoga classes making yoga available to everybody (and every body!). I often hear the misconception that yoga is too easy or that you don’t get a “hard enough” workout. First, take a step back and evaluate your fitness goals. Second, yoga, in its various styles, will help you to achieve any fitness goal. Want to run faster with less chance of injury? Want to lift more weight? Want to be able to put your socks on without falling over? Want to be able to sit on the floor and play with your kids/grandkids (which you should be doing!)? Yoga in whatever form you chose to take it in will help with all of those goals and so much more.
I’ve had many clients who after only 3 classes, find a big difference in strength, flexibility, reduced back pain and posture!
Please see Schedule and Services section for a description of classes offered by KoppensFit/Angela Koppens in Sault Ste. Marie.
Don’t see it on the list? Send me a message to ask about it…
Want a quick and effective workout for all levels? A bootcamp is just that. Usually about 30 minutes in length (you don’t want it longer than that!) and hits all areas of fitness – cardio, strength/core and flexibility. Anyone can do it – I give lots of options and encourage everyone to work at their own fitness level. Challenge yourself but listen to your body.
Group Fitness Classes make exercising fun. They create a camaraderie, a social network and increase the fun factor. It may even hold you accountable…finding a workout buddy will help you stick with it.
Please see Schedule and Services for a description of classes offered. And don’t be afraid to inquire about classes that aren’t listed that you are interested in.
So many workshops, so little time…
I have so much I want to share it’s actually hard to decide what workshops to offer. That’s where you come in. The workshops I offer are driven by your requests.
I currently offer workshops in Stress Management covering Self-Care, Breathing Techniques, Mindfulness, Meditation, Building Resilience & Coping Skills, Journaling, Confidence, Happiness, Forgiveness and Gratitude. These workshops are offered as a series or stand alone. I also offer workshops in Essential Oils, Healthy Eating, Yoga Basics (hands on pose breakdown), Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Chakra Balancing, Meditation (4 week series or 9 Ways in 90 Minutes as an intro).
I have been offering a fun Chakra Dance and meditation for the last 2 years. We spend time dancing (yes, it’s a dance class) to songs to stimulate each of our chakras and then wrap it up with a 15 minute Chakra Meditation.
Please contact me with any suggestions or questions.
Looking to make life changes? Meet goals? Lose weight?
A Coach can help you to figure out what your intentions are, define goals related to your intentions, create a plan to meet your goals and then measure your success.
A Coach also keeps you accountable with regular check ins, redefining goals or plans. This accountable is what helps make you successful in achieving what you desire.
Coaching can be offered privately, as a small group or at the workplace.
What I do…
I have been a Fitness Instructor since 1999. My passion for health and fitness grew to include yoga, small group personal training and healthy eating over the following 17 years.
Through the years I have realized that personal growth and balanced wellness means so much more than just being physically fit. As a result, I have and continue to pursue a special form of yoga called “trauma-sensitive yoga”. Some call it “healing yoga”. Because we have all encountered some form of trauma in our lives, and trauma is different for everyone, it is important to recognize that just reconnecting with the mind and body (and maybe even the spirit) that we can maintain self-care.
As part of self-care and keeping it interesting, I also want fitness to be fun so we keep coming back!
