PILATES

Building on the principles of Joseph Pilates, the exercises will help you develop a strong “core” or center of your body. Pilates will elongate and strengthen your muscles and improve flexibility and joint mobility.


POWER YOGA

This class builds on the basics of yoga by offering a more aggressive flow to warm you quickly and give you a full-body workout. This progressive class is designed for yoga students looking to take their movement to the next level.

VINYASA YOGA

Vinyasa is a discipline that utilizes unique postures and breathing techniques. This type of yoga is designed to help you gain balance and flexibility as you flow through movements. The continuous symmetry from one pose to another creates an added cardiovascular benefit, not present in most traditional yoga forms.
