BODYFLOW™ is a Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.
Part martial art, part exercise program and part meditation. Tai Chi, when practiced regularly, can increase flexibility, build strength, improve balance and coordination, relieve stress and enhance concentration.
All body types and skill levels are encouraged to participate. Safe and gentle, yet challenging postures encourage stronger muscles and bones, while simple relaxation techniques release tension from the mind and body.
The instructor will help you master the skills of controlled breathing and focus, while leading you through a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses for a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance. Class is suitable for all fitness levels.
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. *Included in Mind/Body Pass
