Star Wars Exercise

Golden Gate Knights is an exercise studio for, well, Star Wars nerds.

You won’t find any yoga, stationary bicycles or stair masters here, only lightsabers. Yes, lightsabers.

Their classes include:

Stretching & Warm up We begin each class with a simple warm-up, stretching, and calisthenic exercises to get ourselves limber and prevent any injuries.

Flourishes You will be taught how to do fancy lightsaber flourishes and spins. This includes forward and reverse spins, inverted grips, figure eights and a whole lot more!

Choreography The heart of the class. You will be taught Novastar’s stage choreography system. We will start with basic moves which can be linked together to form dazzling sequences. We will also be teaching film and stage techniques so that your sequences will look great in either medium.

Meditation Our training is internal as well as external. To get us all in the best mental state, we perform a 5 minute meditation right before class ends.
