As you can assume from the title, the vinyasa class is a bit more fast-paced than & a killer workout. 60-minutes of moving and breathing with intention, all while hip-hop/R&B songs play in the background. AKA everything you love about yoga, but with better background music! Plus, as always we end the night with Happy Hour.

We are proud to announce our Open Spaces rumbas at Swope Park throughout the month of September and October. Afro-Cuban rumbas have been occurring on Sunday afternoons at Loose Park since the early 1980s after the late Cuban musician Agustín Romero-Diaz immigrated to Kansas City. Since his passing in 2014, Miko Spears, Bird Fleming, Jessica Ayala, Les Izmore and Brad Williams have kept the flame burning. The Collective is coming to Swope Park’s The Village in four programs fusing rumba, blues, and Motown. Family free event!
Next Level Live is doing an exclusive pop-up production to honor the “Queen of Soul”, Aretha Franklin. The exclusive element is added because the featured singer is the world renowned Gospel Singer Chrystal Rucker.

They are both daughters of world renowned preachers. They both started singing in their fathers churches. Most of all, they both of God given unforgetable voices that leaves people speechless. Come and witness pure greatness.
