What is MOGA?
Moga is a performance based yoga and mobility program. We provide a combination of deep stretch yoga, thai yoga massage, and foam rollers into a small class environment that will enhance long term performance and improve quality of life.
We work with our athletes to increase flexibility, shape lean muscle and sharpen mental focus.
Moga athletes build strength and endurance while reducing stress, recovery time and injury risk to maximize athletic performance.
We believe that body position and correct alignment are critical to functional movement. We will always provide assisted instruction in every class to make sure each individual is given the attention they deserve and need.

Who can benefit?
EVERYONE, from the professional athlete that took a hard tackle in Sunday’s game, the stay at home parent training for triathlons, to the person working at a computer all day, or someone that just wants to get out of bed in the morning without aches and pains.
How can our classes shape the performance of people?
Performance is shaped by increased flexibility and greater range of motion which allows for quick, powerful movement. MOGA also builds strength and endurance while reducing stress, recovery time, and injury risk.

All you need is yourself, a mat, and comfortable clothes- we provide the rest. Flexibility is the goal, not a prerequisite! Please visit our website www.mogacharlotte.com for pricing and class schedule.
