Class Descriptions

Mat Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. Find out how to activate the “powerhouse” muscles and conscious breathing to strengthen, lengthen, and tone the abdomen, pelvic cavity, lower back, glutes, hips, and thighs. Learn how to use concentrated movements of your arms and legs to create long, lean muscles and improve your body’s alignment, enhance your balance, and increase muscular control. Bring a yoga mat or pilates mat to class. 

Restorative Reformer - is a specially designed class which moves at a gentler pace then our other reformer classes. The class will focus on basic pilates exercises, teaching you how to use your core muscles correctly and how to use the Pilates Reformer. Perfect for those recovering from an injury, who are post re-hab, dealing with illness or new to pilates. Appropriate modifications and guidance are made for safe training.

Zumba®  Toning - combining targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba® moves—is a calorie-torching, strength-training dance/fitness party. Learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like toning sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all your target zones, including arms, abs, and thighs. It’s a perfect way to sculpt your body naturally, while having a blast! No dance experience required!

Jumpboard Cardio Reformer is a great way to get the heart rate up and tone the glutes, thighs and calves. It's like jumping on the trampoline, but you're lying down on the reformer and jumping on the jumpboard. You work with all the variations of the jumpboard and also focus on core work in this class.

Essentrics draws on the principles of ballet, tai chi, and physical therapy. It is also known as "Classical Stretch," the #1 fitness show on PBS. It is a full-body, dynamic stretching workout that safely shapes and rebalances the body - from muscles to bones and joints. This unique stretching-in-motion program rapidly creates a long, lean and strong physique with immediate changes to posture. Essentrics' simple circular movements condition our joints, while their pacing and sequencing build and strengthen connections between the body and the brain. Instead of holding poses, Essentrics stretches while staying in motion. It therefore not only conditions our muscles but also lubricates our joints. In addition, the movements embody neuromuscular techniques that improve coordination as well as muscle control. Compared to static stretches, dynamic eccentric training has proven to be far more effective in boosting range of motion, agility, and reducing injuries in sports and daily life. It is therefore wonderful for both athletes and non.

Zumba®  - combines low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. 

Doonya - The Bollywood Workout is a high-energy, cardio dance and conditioning class consisting of short and easy-to-follow routines based in our four main styles of dance (Bolly-pop, Pop Bhangra, Village Celebrations, and Classical Conditioning). The variations of styles and movement create a unique workout that targets each major muscle group and will have you noticing muscles you didn’t even know you had! Fast-paced and energetic music lends to high intensity movements that will automatically provide a great cardio workout. Consistent attendance of Doonya classes will result in overall weight loss as well as increase strength of the glutes, quadriceps, calves, hamstrings, inner and outer thigh as well as the shoulder, arms, and abs (just to name a few!).
