Yogilates combines the slow controlled breathing and stretching of yoga, with the core strengthening of Pilates. This class is designed to reduce stress, relieve tension, and calm the mind while also increasing strength, balance, flexibility and coordination. Class sessions will include yoga and Pilates exercises, balance poses, stretching and a stress-reducing, relaxation segment. Options and modifications will be given to include beginner to intermediate levels.
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.
Restorative yoga provides “me” time by allowing us to breathe and focus on ourselves in the present moment. Relaxing into a series of gentle yoga poses facilitates stress reduction and health, while also nourishing the body. Enjoy the luxury of experiencing poses for a longer period of time than traditional yoga poses, while various props are used to support the body to encourage the release of both muscular and emotional tightness. Benefits of restorative yoga include enhancing flexibility, boosting the immune system, balancing the nervous system and improving the capacity for healing. This class is appropriate for all levels and no previous yoga experience is needed.
Realign, Rebalance, Restore
Extend the life of your body! What if the majority of our ailments could be alleviated just by moving differently? Using whole-body alignment and gentle exercises, movements and adjustments, we will learn to move in a way that creates more mobility, reduces tension, heals tissues, decreases pain/inflammation, builds strength and stability, and extends the life of our tissues and joints. If you are ready to unlearn the habits that have gotten you into pain - this class is for you. Individuals who sit regularly and/or are experiencing any of the following may find the exercises especially helpful in restoring function: back, hip, knee or foot pain; pelvic floor dysfunction; diastasis recti; or plantar fasciitis.

A little about Tai Chi:
Tai Chi includes gentle flowing movements that are both healing & mindful. It can be done from a standing or seated position, with breaks allowed at any time. Benefits include improvement in posture, balance, range of motion, strength, confidence, and mind-body integration. Tai Chi has been called “medication in motion” by the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi. This form of Tai Chi focuses on safety and has been scientifically proven to help with fall prevention. It is recognized as effective by the CDC, Agency on Aging, and the Arthritis Foundation.
