Our YOBarre fusion classes combine yoga, pilates, strength, cardio and some ballet moves. We will use ballet barres to help build strength, stabilize your balance and improve your flexibility. All levels are welcome, with plenty of options for beginners to circuit training junkies. Bring your yoga mat, water bottle, and towel, and we'll provide the rest.
Our Pilates mat class involves a series of exercises that teach body awareness and encourage a greater body/mind connection. The benefits include improved coordination skills, strengthening of the spinal muscles and core areas, improved flexibility, better posture, and long, lean muscle tone. This class is suitable for all fitness levels.
