Pilates (private, semi-private & group classes)

Pilates is used to achieve a naturally aligned body. The exercises, done on a mat, equiment and/or with props, teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, with the aim to strengthen the core muscles. Standing Pilates is also offered to teach correct alignment in functional positions. Pilates targets the entire body rather than just certain areas. When practicing Pilates, the process is as important as the results. Pilates works to improve body mechanics, quality of movement, core muscles, stength and flexibility.

Please contact me for locations of pilates equipment classes.

 

Yoga

1. Private and group classes for adults

Yoga helps to relieve stress and increase mindfulness. By holding different yoga positions (asanas), one could become more focused, balanced and centered. Doing the asanas also helps to improve the body's flexibility and vitality. Another benefit of yoga is that it helps to quiet the mind. Through inner reflection, one could become more aware of how they are living their lives. 

 

2. Yoga for Kids (& Families)

These sessions combine yoga poses, imagination, mindfulness practices, breathing exercies and interaction in a fun and creative way. These sessions are geared for children ages 4 to 12, and can be offered for children only, or children plus adult family member.
