Stretch & Tone at the Barre
Stretch and Tone at the Barre offers exercises that integrate elements of Pilates, dance, and strength training! The pace is dynamic and energetic. You will use light props at the barre to strengthen the core, legs, glutes, and arms. Plus we incorporate dynamic stretching to improve flexibility.
ESSENTRICS® is a system of exercise that was designed to dynamically combine strengthening and stretching to develop a strong, toned body. The idea is to develop full mobility of each joint and muscle. In this Essentrics Restore and Stretch class we work on increasing your flexibility, improving your mobility and building strong bones.
Over the course of 5 weeks, you will learn the movements step by step that comprise this full body workout.
The workout incorporates a dynamic combination of stretching and toning movements to simultaneously create longer, leaner, stronger muscles without using weights. The instructor, Sharon, uses movements set to music in this slow to moderately paced workout ideal for beginners as well as athletes. Participants will notice an immediate increase in flexibility and a release of tension in their muscles after each class- improving their posture and range of motion. Stress is released and aches and pains are soothed through the gradual unlocking of the entire body.
Combination of standing and floor work.
This practice is designed to help you tune into your body and your breath, your way. We move at a moderate pace, mindfully linking movement with breath as we balance the opportunity to increase strength and flexibility with the cultivation of self-awareness. Movement ranges from dynamic flow to longer holds, incorporating yogic philosophy and meditation as we explore the many benefits that yoga has to offer. All levels welcome, as props are available and modifications will be offered; make the practice your own.
Pilates with the Orange Ball
The orange mini stability ball releases tension throughout the body. It enhances Pilates movements by adding resistance and increasing demands on the neuromuscular system. The result is a stronger, more resilient and fluid body. All levels
We combine the stretch, focus and balance of a yoga practice with the stability that comes from Pilates exercises. This class has a yoga pace and feel while incorporating Pilates exercises to develop shoulder, core and pelvic stability. Standing poses and balances will add strength and recruit the deep muscles we develop in Pilates movements. All levels
Pilates all Levels
Students will work through a repertoire of Pilates exercises with the goal of developing core stability and strength from the inside out. We use detailed cueing to learn and practice controlled, concentrated movements centered with breath awareness to access the deep muscles that build core strength. Modifications will be given for varying skill levels. Beginners welcome
Stretch and Tone
Stretch & Tone will move you through a series of exercises to improve overall functionality of the body. Using a combination of props such as the orange ball, flex-band and yoga strap, we will use Pilates, yoga and traditional exercises to strengthen the core while improving range of motion in the joints and large muscle groups. The goal is to improve mobility while strengthening. Whether you are a runner with no time to stretch, someone who has chronically tight muscles or you just want to improve your overall strength and flexibility, this class is for you. All levels
