Abs & Core
In this challenging class, you work deep into your powerhouse working from the inside out. This class will drastically change the way your body looks, feels and performs. Strengthening your body without adding bulk, you will create a toned body with long lean legs and a strong flat tummy. Working on all planes of movement from the core, you will work your entire body. Open to all levels.

Roll & Release
This Roll & Release class is a great way to learn how to perform self-myofascial release of trigger points in the muscles. Trigger points are sore spots that form within muscles or tendons. Foam rolling is a way of massaging away muscle soreness in trigger points and preparing your muscles for deeper stretching. Using the foam roller and lacrosse ball to loosen the tension in your muscles provides an excellent way of obtaining the benefits of self-myofascial release.
Flex & Stretch
Change your body by boosting muscular endurance, targeting specific muscle groups and increasing your fat-burning capacity in this Flex & Stretch Class. Incorporating the Flex-Band into your matwork routine to add upper and lower body resistance training into your workout and end the class with a good stretch!
The Reformer’s multi-functional structure and adjustable controls make it a magic machine for anyone and everyone. On one hand, it supports rehabilitative exercises, for those recovering from sports injuries. On the other hand, it also provides the optimal targeted resistance for strength training, for those seeking that extra calorie burn.
