A 15-minute surprise - may be arms, may be glutes, may be thighs, but whatever the focus, it will be intense. Be prepared to sweat! Class starts September 9, 2019.

*Barre Fit


 Barre Fit is one of the most effective ways to change the shape of your body.  Using isometric movements that combine Pilates, strength training, and yoga, coupled with ballet barre flexibility routine, Barre Fit targets all major muscle groups for an invigorating total body workout.  Barre Fit classes use deliberate strength and stretching techniques to reshape bodies and challenge even the strongest of athletes. The overall promise is to create long and lean muscles without bulk. This hour long class is a rigorous, fast-paced sculpting class integrating the use of the ballet barre, light weights, bands, and balls with some yoga flow sequencing and stretching.  

*Gentle (Hatha) Yoga


If you need to stretch, strengthen, relax, and smile, you should try Gentle Yoga.  This alignment-based yoga will help to  increase essential mobility, balance, and foundational strength.  The class features slow stretches and focus work on proper alignment suitable for all fitness levels with the instructor making adjustments to suit each participant’s ability.

*Gentle Yoga & Meditation


Gentle Yoga & Meditation is a practice of optimal health and well-being for the whole self. Combining the practices of Yin with other lineages of seated yoga and meditation methods a powerful possibility for transformation and holistic healing on all layers of being - body, mind, and heart is created. This practice unwinds tension in the body to bring long-lasting relief and health to the body's critical "invisible half," refreshes the mind to bring clarity and deeper understanding, and creates spaciousness in the heart. With a slow and steady approach, this class uses floor poses held in stillness to target the body's connective tissue, coupled with various meditation techniques to bring around balance and a peaceful quieting of the mind.    

*Vinyasa Yoga


A rigorous, empowering yoga flow for the practitioner who desires a mindful challenge. Various sequences of poses linked together in the “Vinyasa” tradition; flowing from one to the next while focusing on breath. A typical class includes 20 minutes of sun salutation variations, 20 minutes of muscle strengthening through holding standing poses, 20 minutes of seated stretching including back bending, and hip openers.  This class is appropriate for all levels.  

**Cardio Crunch


This class is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.  It incorporates a comprehensive warmup, cardio set, conditioning, and stretching.  You’re the boss of your intensity level.  Bring a water bottle and a towel.  You will sweat!   

**Tone, Strengthen, & Stretch


The name says it all for this class that uses body weight, hand weights, bands, and resistance techniques for a workout that tones and strengthens.  And, don’t forget the stretching!  

**Zumba® Gold
