Barre Strength - A class that integrates fat-burning interval training with muscle-sculpting isometric exercises to systematically lengthen and sculpt your muscles to create a lean and beautiful body. Utilizing your own body weight, small hand weights and other simple props, your muscles are targeted to the point of fatigue and then immediately stretched for relief. This non-impact workout targets all muscle groups and improves core strength and posture. Class is conducted in bare feet or grippy socks - no sneakers. Please bring a mat to class, all other equipment will be provided.

Deep Stretch and Myofascial Release - This class focuses on deep release in the joints and tissues of the body, especially the back, hips, thighs and legs. Focus on these tissues has a better effect on stretching and exercising the joint areas of the body.

To understand myofascial release, we must first understand fascia. Imagine a very strong dew-covered spider web encircling a shrub. And between the gaps in the threads is a clear gel, rather than air. If you can picture this, then you're on your way to understanding fascia. This three-dimensional complex matrix threads itself throughout our body, surrounding our muscles, organs, nerves, bones, blood vessels and even our cells. Everything is held together and in place by fascia. It is impressively flexible and infinitely adaptable.

And because fascia is a very strong, very connected spider web, when one spot on it gets tugged or pulled or injured, the effects ripple throughout the body. This is why we may have pain in our knee that may have nothing to do with a knee injury, but everything to do with an injury to our lower back. The natural, fluid state of the fascia has been traumatized, causing it to harden and tighten.

Myofascial release techniques (MFR) are designed to go in and smooth out those hard knots, returning the fascia to its normal fluid and adaptable self. In MFR, a gentle, sustained pressure is applied to points of restriction (those bunched up spots), allowing the connective tissue to release.

Great for runners and new yogis. It's the perfect complement to your regular workouts and/or yoga practice.

Modified Half Primary Ashtanga Yoga - Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient, highly athletic style of yoga that gained popularity in India in the early 1900s. Ashtanga is a form of Vinyasa yoga that incorporates the same, set sequence each time you practice. Sometimes referred to as the "complete fitness" Yoga for its equal emphasis on strength and flexibility, Ashtanga is just the right amount of challenge to push your limits, and requires a high degree of concentration that allows the mind to be still and clear. This Modified Half Primary Ashtanga Class will lead you through the first half of the Ashtanga Yoga sequence.

Slow Flow Yoga - Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga is a smooth way of practicing yoga where poses run together and become like a dance. The breath is an important component of the practice as the teacher instructs students to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Slow Flow yoga is perfect for beginners to become familiar with yoga postures. It's also a wonderful practice for intermediate to advanced students to slow down and deepen their practice. In Slow Flow expect a focus on proper alignment and positioning with deeper attention paid to the foundation of your yoga practice, as you use your breath to guide you in and out of yoga poses.
