BARRE

BARRE

STRENGTHEN, LENGTHEN TONE. Balanced Barre is a fusion of Pilates, Yoga, and core work. Set to contemporary music using hand weights, the mat and the ballet barre, this 60 minute class will tone, reshape, stretch and strengthen you like no other. Mixed level class moves at a fairly fast pace but offers plenty of instructional cues and modifications.

GENTLE FLOW YOGA

GENTLE FLOW YOGA

This class uses a relaxed sequence to find depth in accessible postures. The focus is on the breath while creating mobility in the spine, pelvis and joints. It is appropriate for all levels, is effective in stress reduction, supports injury recovery and has shown to dramatically increase flexibility without creating discomfort. All this leads to a deliciously deep relaxation, followed by a guided meditation. It is an excellent compliment to Barre, and the more challenging Yoga classes.
