Active Isolated Stretching

AIS is a simple but profound system of myofascial stretching with applications in physical therapy, pain management, and athletic performance. It is used by many professional athletes to improve recovery, prevent injury and enhance optimal range of motion. It is gentle enough for anyone, and can help address many of the imbalances and mobility restrictions at the root of chronic pain.

Gentle Hatha

This class uses Hatha yoga poses in an manner adapted to suit each individual. This class is great for students experiencing chronic or acute limitations to mobility, or who desire a slower, more deliberate, and nurturing practice than can be found in faster paced flow practices. It is appropriate for all levels from beginner to long time practitioner.

Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method® is a somatic education system which uses gentle movement and directed attention to explore habitual movement patterns and discover new, more efficient, graceful and pain-free ways of moving. Benefits include an increased ease and range of motion, better coordination, and increased mindfulness and curiosity throughout life. It can also help identify and overcome habits and tension holding patterns that may be limiting your capabilities and growth or which may even cause injury.

Floor Barre

Floor-Barre® is a ballet-inspired workout designed to lengthen and strengthen muscles, build core, hip, and foot control, and improve body alignment and balance. All exercises are executed lying on the floor, allowing students to focus inward, working muscles deeply and intelligently. It is gentle on joints and perfect for injury prevention and recovery as well as cross-training.

Iyengar Yoga – Hip Openers

Iyengar Yoga places special emphasis on precise alignment and form. For this reason, it is especially well suited for therapeutic applications like balancing structural misalignment.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is all about nourishment and stillness, softening into our breath and letting the body fully surrender. These classes provide a much needed counterpoint to life’s constant fast-paced bustle and stress, teaching us to perceive and release tensions in places we may not even be aware of, and giving physiological and psychological rest to the nervous system. They may also be a good place to start if you have mobility limitations or injuries. Poses are completely supported by props, and each is held for 5-20 minutes so that you can fully relax.
