Our technique is based on the disciplines of Pilates, dance, yoga and orthopedic stretching. You learn how to use your own body weight as resistance and are taught to navigate through positions so you can control and move powerfully through each exercise. Each class includes standing leg and gluteus work at the barre to chisel calves, thighs and butt, floor work for core and spinal strength, and hand-weights work for sculpting the arms, all this set to great music. Each muscle group is worked to fatigue then stretched. This means that the muscles are strengthened and lengthened at the same time.book a class
