Pilates & Power Stretch

WHAT TO EXPECT

An invigorating combination of yoga, Pilates, strength conditioning and dance.

LEVEL

Beginner friendly

INTENSITY

Low to Moderate

WEAR

Comfortable workout attire. Bring a mat or use one from the studio.

Build strength, flexibility and balance in this challenging yet low-impact class.

 

Power Stretch & Sculpt combines yoga, Pilates, dance, conditioning and sometimes even Tai Chi to create a rejuvenating workout targeting every major muscle group. We also offer full Pilates mat classes, which include many of the exercises in the classical series created by Joseph Pilates as well as some of our own additions to add variety.

Don’t be fooled by the word “low-impact” — you WILL get a workout! While the focus is on conditioning, some classes may also incorporate a little cardio or plyometrics, and all include mat work aimed at core strength. Class is performed barefoot to stimulate balance reflexes and tighten core muscles.

This class is also great for sore muscles, back and knee pain, and joint stiffness. Just let the instructor know of any specific injuries or concerns so s/he can help you modify certain movements.

We also occasionally offer a Power Sculpt: Core variation. This program also incorporates a mix of body weight conditioning, Pilates, stretches and light cardio, but with an emphasis on tightening up the abdomen.

When offered, also check out our AcroYoga, a collaborative partner workout that combines elements of circus acrobatics with yoga practice in a safe, beginner-friendly environment. Anyone can learn these movements, absolutely no prior yoga or gymnastics experience required.
