Breathwork – A critical component for life. Easily taken for granted, breathing is instrumental in all forms of movement. Learn to breathe with movement to encourage strength and relaxation as a most foundational aspect of exercise.

Pilates Mat – A method developed by Joseph Pilates, the original 34 movements require discipline, concentration, and control. The ultimate responsible for well-being resides with the individual. Compassionate instruction leads the way. The Pilates process builds core strength and flexibility.

Yoga – A blend of Hatha Yoga with Pilates include an active mind to support the body. Currently the three live classes currently offered are Yin, Seasonal Sunrise, and the Yoga Pilates blend.

Barre Work – Using the stationary support of a sturdy chair frees the mind to focus on precise tiny movements of the hips and legs. Lengthen and strengthen muscles of the hips, legs and feet to improve overall balance.

Fitness Walk – Bring the walk indoors to meet your step goals when the weather is uncooperative. This 20-minute routine strengthens the leg muscles and increases cardio endurance. More than walking in place, keep pace with a lively beat with side steps, hip work, kicks, and lunges. Knee lifts simulate an incline as the dance steps stimulates the heart.
