(55 minute sessions)
Total body workout incorporating stretching and strengthening utilizing the Pilates Apparatus known as the Reformer. The spring loaded movable carriage of the reformer provides a core challenge with each and every exercise.
TOWER OF POWER
This class simulates the exercises done on Joseph Pilates Apparatus known as the Cadillac or Trapeze Table. Using the Tower Springs to assist or resist movements, the entire body is lengthened and strengthened as you move fluidly from one exercise to the next.
This class includes a little bit of both Tower and Reformer.
CARDIO JUMPBOARD CLASS
Kick up your heart rate and work your core with the Pilates Jumpboard. This fast-paced class focuses on strengthening abs, glutes, and legs with the added benefit of calorie burning.
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your body-weight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
Let Go More
All stretching on the reformer. Just like our Let Go Yoga class but on the reformer, using springs for resistance. The mind stays focused on the breath for a very relaxing, meditative experience. Leave the class feeling longer, taller, more open and much more relaxed.
A challenging, slower paced yoga class. We start with a warm up and gradually move toward long held yoga poses. Each pose is held for five to ten breaths, challenging your muscles and your mind! Learn “proper” alignment that is right for YOUR particular body, as the instructor has more time to explain each pose. We end with some grounded, more relaxing poses, to cool down and find some peace and quiet in your head and heart. WARM SLOW YOGA is exactly the same, but the room is heated to 85 degrees.
A quiet yin practice with quiet music and a relaxing fragrance! Very slow paced yoga, where we stop and hold poses that take very little or no muscle exertion or muscle strain. Almost all poses are from a seated or reclined position. You’ll be guided into a grounded pose and asked to completely relax and let go, as the tissues in your body stretch and loosen. Poses are held for ten breaths to ten minutes, during which time you work on quieting your mind and releasing emotional tension. This is good for ANYbody…seniors, students, body builders, marathon runners, desk workers, couch potatoes…every single person can benefit from this rejuvenating, peaceful practice.
Xtend Barre sculpts the body proportionally so that all body parts are equally challenged. This total body workout serves to strengthen, lengthen, and stretch the body from top to bottom, from inside out. The end result is a long and lean physique… without added bulk. Developed from a dance/Pilates background, the Xtend workout combines the amazing results of dance with the principles of strength and safety in Pilates while providing a cardio element.
Roll through a fun, full-body workout that strengthens, stretches and challenges on multiple planes! Orbit exercises include both circular and linear movements, and range from mild to complex. It’s an amazing core workout because your abdominal muscles are always engaged. You will also increase upper body and lower body strength, and improve flexibility and balance. Rotate, flex, extend and stretch your way to a longer, leaner, healthier you.
BODY TONING BALL CLASS
This Body Toning Ball Class utilizes both Medicine Balls and Stability Balls for an intense Core Challenge!! Don’t be fooled there are plenty of upper extremity and lower extremity fat burning moves as well!!
If you’ve felt like classical Pilates has gotten stale over the past several years, then this is the innovation and the brand new energy that you are yearning for. The combination of total body Pilates exercises with the attitude of choreographed dance and the energy of music, results in an intense workout that is FUN and effective. You will be challenged to flow from one exercise to the next, developing a rock solid core, while leaving NO muscle untouched. POP Pilates® was developed by the #1 fitness instructor on YouTube, Cassey Ho of Blogilates.
Ashtanga Yoga involves a set sequence of poses that follows the exact same order every time you practice. The beauty of the repetition is that since each class is the same, so once you memorize the sequence, you can practice on your own at home or when you travel. The poses will also be held a little longer. This will allow you to learn and explore each pose a little more so you are more familiar with them. The entire Ashtanga series can be very challenging for intermediate yogis, and can take 90 minutes. At Happy Hour we shortened the series to make it for all levels and only one hour long. This is truly a class for beginners, just learning the poses, as well as a class for the most experienced yogis. Ashtanga is the heart of the physical practice of yoga.
Let Go and Flow
A moving meditation. We focus on the breath the entire practice! It completely clears your mind. It is the same practice every time. Stretches are held for 10 breath…and we move through 5 very slow sun salutations. A great class for ALL levels! It ends with guided meditation! You will feel better both mentally and physically after the class!
Follows the same basic format as Slow Yoga but with some space for gratitude. We stop and count our blessings and take some quiet time for our weekly prayer list. A wonderful Sunday morning class.
