Class Descriptions

50/50 Yoga Pilates classes fuses lower-body strength through standing pilates exercises while integrating core-strengthening through vinyassa yoga poses. This class is suited for those looking for a total body workout while achieving a balanced mind-body experience and reinforced pilates principles.

A great all-levels class for those who wish to move their bodies and relax deeply. This class will be slower paced and softer than a power class, however it still focuses on strength, endurance, balance and flexibility. This class incorporates sun salutations and juicy stretches with an emphasis on calming the body and mind. Basic yoga postures are combined with regulated breath and performed in a systematic and accessible manner. This class helps reduce stress, increase energy, stretch, strengthen muscles and encourages you to breathe more freely and fully.

Pilates is designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles, creating a toned and lean look. Pilates improves posture, flexibility and balance. Core exercises are emphasized, and you will definitely feel the burn!

For those looking for variety, dive into this challenging, full body workout that combines strength building exercises and the practice of yoga.

Get ready to breathe and sweat! An energetic class that starts by heating the body up with sun salutations, followed with a creative flow of standing, balancing, seated, and twisting poses, with optional inverted poses in the mix too. Vinyasa-powered, flowing from pose to pose by connecting each movement with breath. A mellow cool down at the end to savasana. Definitely a challenging class!
