You may be sore in the morning, but you'll be back for more.
Updog Fitness, 8599 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
Meaghan Kennedy Townsend had us doing abdominal work within the first few minutes of class, some side plank pushups (yes, side plank pushups) and then worked into a series of challenging arm balances and flow sequences that are geared toward students with an athletic practice and a working knowledge of yoga postures. Meaghan Kennedy Townsend brings together a strong alignment-based practice with hands-on adjustments, funky music and opportunities for the class to flow through songs with no verbal instruction – just the music and a sequence that she breaks down before letting you flow. There are two things we can assure you of after attending her class: You'll be sore in the morning, but you'll be back for more.
