Restorative Yoga - A gentle yoga practice that emphasizes opening and softening the body with the support of bolsters, blocks, and blankets. Excellent for releasing tension and bringing a sense of ease and mindfulness to the body. Suitable for all levels.
Barre Above™ fuses the best of Pilates, Yoga, Ballet, and Strength Training to bring the heart rate up through dynamic movement. Classes incorporate specific sequencing patterns and isometric movements that target specific muscle groups. This class delivers an upbeat, engaging workout to popular music, and safe approach to movement is emphasized. Suitable for healthy students of all levels.
Pilates stresses economy of motion. The emphasis is on the quality of movement, not quantity.
Pilates elongates muscle as it strengthens and stretches. The result is tone, not bulk: long, slender legs, a flat stomach, narrow hips, and a strong back. Posture gains are visibly noticeable.
The foundation of the Pilates technique is to keep the body’s center "core" controlled and strong in order to protect the back. Breathing and abdominal support are essential in every movement sequence. Total conditioning, including hard to work muscles areas such as the back of the thigh, the inner thigh, and the backs of the arms, help to improve strength, flexibility, endurance, and coordination.
The program promotes total physical and mental discipline. Students learn to think of their bodies as a whole, instead of separate parts. By learning to integrate their mental and physical selves, students can take what they learn in Pilates into everyday life. After a few sessions, most people will feel an increased energy level; they start noticing changes in body shape and flexibility.
