Functional Longevity Wednesdays and Fridays 9:40-10:25am

Based on the work of biomechanist, Katy Bowman, we will focus on movement that encourages us to move well, feel better, and be functionally independent (being able to participate in the activities and pastimes we enjoy, as well as being able to continue to live in our own home). Class movements will be performed from a variety of standing, seated and floor postures and will often use a tennis ball, yoga block(s) and/or a strap (please email Kristie for options if you currently do not own this equipment and would like to participate). 

  Who this class is for:

  • inquisitive individuals who want to truly get to know their body and how it was designed to work.

  • anyone wanting to be the CEO of their own body, health and well-being.

  • participants wanting to improve their body awareness and mind-body connection to be able to identify what muscles are working and why.

  • anyone wanting to discover how our body is "sneaky" and allows us to move and perform in the way we desire, but often results in inappropriate muscles/tissues being utilized which causes aches, pains, injury and joint damage.

  • individuals who are interested in learning how to apply what is learned in class into their daily life for optimal benefits and success. 

  Who this class is NOT for:

  • individuals who want to "shut off" their brain and just follow along with an instructor.

  • anyone focused on getting ripped, looking better in a swimsuit or desiring to participate in a boot-camp style workout.

  • individuals believing that participating in a class a few times a week will provide a quick fix for aches and pains that have taken decades to create, without paying attention/being mindful of our movements and postures throughout the day.

Movement Fusion

Join us for a group fitness class that combines Pilates, dance, yoga and sculpting movements. Using bodyweight, this class challenges the entire body, especially the muscles of the legs, butt and core to tighten and tone, without adding bulk. 

This class will enhance flexibility and both muscular and cardiorespiratory endurance through fast-paced, low-impact movements. Whether performing exercises laying down, seated, or standing, the focus is always on maintaining proper alignment and core stabilization to create a fun, yet challenging, workout experience. This class is designed for healthy individuals with no previous dance experience.
