Today's hydrostatic testing is cancelled
Body comp testing has been cancelled. The truck/test operator had a death in the family. Those who signed up will receive a complimentary test when he reschedules (probably next week... stay tuned for details).
Yoga is coming!
CrossFitters need yoga. We can all benefit from being more mobile, mindful and having better body control. That's why we're psyched to announce that CrossFit Midtown will be adding yoga classes to our regular schedule. Eventually, we aim to offer four classes a week at various times, but we're starting with one.
Wednesdays at 1:15pm beginning today (more class times are coming!)

Who can attend?:
All CFM students are welcome to attend. This will count as one of your regular weekly classes, so you will check in as usual. Guests are also welcome to join the class for a $15 drop-in fee. DON'T FORGET YOUR YOGA MAT!
Beth was the first student to register at CrossFit Midtown! Aside from being #1, she's also a talented yoga instructor, so I am thrilled to add her class to the CFM schedule!
Beth is a 200-hr Registered Yoga Instructor and a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Midtown Atlanta. She has been practicing yoga for 11 years, starting when a friend introduced her to Bikram Yoga (a type of hot yoga) in 2001. She now teaches and practices a vinyasa style for all levels. She incorporates therapeutic yoga into her classes by focusing on common musculoskeletal imbalances and working toward creating a balance between core strength and flexibility. She is currently in the internship phase of her training with the Pranakriya program in Atlanta and will be a Certified Yoga Therapist and 500-hr instructor by March of next year. Beth also leads therapeutic, mindfulness based and trauma sensitive yoga groups in her counseling practice. She believes anyone can practice yoga and loves working with beginners. No experience or flexibility is required to start, but you will become more flexible with practice. There are modifications of every pose that can make yoga accessible to anybody. Do what you can with what you have, where you are now, without judgment. Acceptance is the heart of yoga and the key to creating positive change.
