Pilates FLEX

Pilates FLEX is a strength, mobility and flexibility class for today’s lifestyle. Is your body feeling tight? Lower back, hips and shoulders need releasing? Pilates FLEX will improve your mobility, strength and flexibility in one motivating class.

Yoga

Yoga developed over thousands of years as a way of life that focuses on the union between body & mind to achieve a state of meditative consciousness called Samadhi. It originated in India many thousands of years ago. In the West, we tend to practice the asana/physical part of that lifestyle. Asanas are traditionally sitting poses that are held for a period of time, although in modern day Yoga there are hundreds of poses and dozens of Yoga styles which can be delivered fast or slow, sweaty or calm. Very good for stress relief!
