Pilates is an exercise system on a mat or specially designed equipment that provides a full body workout. Its focus is on developing a strong core, while using all parts of your body. It creates increased strength, flexibility, stamina and balance in a fun and energetic way. Through Pilates you can become more aware of your core strength and how it plays an important role in your posture and alignment.
Barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance, yoga, and functional training, with moves that are choreographed to motivating music. In each energizing and targeted workout you’ll use the barre and exercise equipment such as mini-balls and small hand weights to sculpt, slim, and stretch your entire body.
Tai Chi is a Chinese Martial art that combines slow, soft movement with breath and intention. Described as meditation in motion, it can help with circulation, balance, alignment, and overall energy. For the purpose of improved health, we combine Yang style, the most popular form of tai chi, and qi gong exercises in each class.
The practice of yoga creates a union of the mind, body and heart. Yoga opens a gateway to explore deeply within ourselves, instead of the external world. It uses the discipline of physical postures, meditation, and breathing techniques to attain physical, emotional and mental balance. Yoga opens the door to our full potential as individuals through a system of conscious movement that trains the body, the breath and the mind. Yoga can be done any level, at any age, and in any of our classes.
