Class Schedule

2023/24 School Year drop-in classes run from September 5, 2023 to June 1, 2024.

Gentle Stretch & Strengthen

This class is designed for students that feel a standard exercise class is too intense. We will use principles from mind body exercise methods such as Pilates and GYROKINESIS®, along with proper form, to strengthen our muscles and increase your range of motion. Small props like balls, chairs, and bands will be added to help achieve our goals. This class may be helpful to those recovering from injury or with chronic injuries.
