Taught by Nicole Mannarino
The main incentive of this class is to aid the individual in developing a more efficient climbing style. We will do this through enhancing technical skills, overall strength and flexibility, and enhancing psychological control.
Nicole Mannarino has climbed on many different rock morphologies and has come to understand the importance of having a well-rounded technical base in order to tackle the complexities of climbing.
Introduction to climbing ( co-ed)
Rock climbing can be a very frustrating and intimidating sport to get into if you don’t know what are you supposed to do and you don’t know much about the climbing culture.
Aika, our clinic instructor, is super nice and she is willing to spend the time to help a climber develop their ability to accomplish specific goals.
If you are a beginner or even if you are an expericne climber this a great way to make friends and feel confident next time you come to the gym!

Wednesdays 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Taught by Christopher Lopez
New to the sport of bouldering? Want to take your climbing to the next level? Stuck on that one cave problem? Come join us for our weekly Co-ed Bouldering Clinics, held every Sunday evening in MPHC’s extensive bouldering room.
We’ll cover techniques for every skill set and level, as well as basics of bouldering safety and training.
Christopher Lopez has been climbing since the spring of 2010. Bouldering is his preferred style of climbing, having climbed in various different areas throughout New York as well as taking trips to Joe’s Valley, Utah and The Stone Fort in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
His dedication to the sport and teachings on bouldering at his local climbing gym has made him a mainstay in the New York City climbing community. He was recently featured in the newly released NYC Bouldering Guidebook sending “The Scratching Post,” a V3 boulder problem on Cat Rock in Central Park.
Yoga For Climbers
Thursdays 8:30pm – 9:30pm
Taught by Myda
Back by popular demand! Yoga for Climbers is a uniquely designed yoga class for those who want to extend the limits of their bodies. Whether it be rock climbing, running, biking, swimming, or extreme couch surfing, the class is targeted to enhance the movements and skills needed for increased endurance, power, and focus.
Each week Myda focuses on a different area of the body, promoting awareness and opening specific muscle groups and joints. Through various traditional (and some non-traditional) yoga positions, we safely explore methods to build better strength, balance, flexibility, and body/mind awareness.
Class is open to climbers and non-climbers alike, as well as beginners and experienced yogis.
