28th Street Barre is hosting an amazing community event to support Wild Hearts Idaho (WHI). Caitlyn Scales will be leading a POUND class to help raise money for WHI! Participants will have the opportunity to do a team building activity that sheds light on elements of privilege in the world and the importance of a mindset of generosity and giving for all. This experience will set the tone for why supporting others in the world is important and how we can choose – even in the smallest ways – to be a person who values the spirit of giving.
POUND provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, and rockin’ out! Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this full-body workout inspired by yoga and pilates movements. Using lightly weighted drumsticks, POUND transforms the art of drumming and rhythm into an incredibly fun way of working out.

In this class we will begin by moving gently, allowing tension to release from our bodies. Then we will settle in for a guided, restorative rest in Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is the practice of sacred sleep. It takes you into the healing space between wakefulness and sleep. Your body is completely still and asleep, while your mind is conscious of this deep relaxation. After waking, we will learn about and discuss daily self care tools to keep us feeling centered and calm throughout the holidays and in our everyday lives.
Sunday Dec. 9 from 3-4:30pm for $20

TABATA GX is coming to 28th Sunday, June 9th from 10a-4p! We are so excited to host the training for this super fun HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) course! Earlybird Pricing is $169.99 and space will be limited! Classes start in July at the studio!
The unique protocol used in Tabata Bootcamp™ is the 20-10 microburst intervals. An interval consists of performing specifically chosen exercises at an ultra high intensity for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest. The beauty behind these short microbursts is that 20 seconds at high intensity is doable and the 10 second rest allows for brief recovery before moving on to the next exercise interval. These 20-10 microburst intervals are stacked in the 30 minute group workouts in specific sequences of different exercise movements that target every part of your body. The 6 minute workouts also stack 20-10 intervals using just a few select exercise movements that deliver a short yet high metabolic boosting workout.
This short duration, but high intensity interval training (HIIT) creates a prolonged afterburn, or EPOC (excess post oxygen consumption). This type of training causes the body to take longer to return to its state of rest, so it continues to burn calories (5x more) at a higher rate long after the workout session has completed. Put simply, a 4-minute Tabata Bootcamp workout can reap the same benefits as a longer but steady workout, like running for a half hour. The results with microburst workouts are backed by research.
We are honored to Welcome BASI Pilates to 28th! At BASI Pilates® we regard the Mat Work as the “crown jewel” of Pilates. It is the essence of the system, without which a great void would exist.

A one-hour mat class is taught on each module. This program is designed for those who want to gain thorough knowledge of the Pilates Mat repertoire as well as a foundation in kinesiology.

There’s a beautiful coloration between the art of movement and visual art that we will be celebrating at 28th. We love supporting our diverse local talent in Boise. Please join us December 10th at 6pm for a magical night featuring our first artist, Giny Pitchell. Step into the artist’s life and mind while enjoying a glass of wine. Giny has been painting for 50 years and artful living is the cornerstone of her life. She is from Berlin, Germany and has lived all across the United States and Europe. She holds a BA in Fine Arts from Humboldt State University. Giny’s bold brush strokes seemingly leap from the canvas to convey strong visual expression whether in abstract form, still life, landscape or architectural interpretation. One cannot help but connect emotionally to Giny’s artful representations. Giny not only paints a picture but also tells the story of why she cements her favorite memories through painting.
