Adult Ballet — Develop muscle tone, core strength, balance and grace. Ideal for those who are ex-dancers and have no dance experience.

Ai Chi — Similar to tai chi but performed in the Warm Water Therapy Pool. Learn to move through a flowing progression of slow, broad movements using your arms, legs and torso. Improve range of motion and mobility and experience the deep relaxation that promotes sleep.

Aqua Yoga — Yoga in the water is an exciting way to begin or continue your yoga practice. The feeling of weightlessness in the water takes the stress out of challenged joints and stabilizes them to free muscular tightness or discomfort. A practice of mostly standing postures (head stays above water) are presented with props and modifications, making the practice of yoga accessible to EVERY BODY. Both beginning and experienced yogis welcome!

Chair Yoga — Participants who cannot get on the floor and those with limitations can benefit from a practice of yoga on a chair. The chair becomes an extension of your body, allowing you to take full advantage of yoga’s amazing fitness and health potential.

Gentle Yoga — Yoga for active older adults, beginners and those looking for a gentler, more fundamental approach. This class will educate your body on the basics of yoga flows and asanas (poses) while improving alignment and flexibility.

Heart Plus — Light cardio and strength segments, along with exercises that promote balance and core stability.

Heart Plus Toning — Focus more on strength and cardio exercises to strengthen your muscular and vascular systems!

Restorative Yoga — This class is slow and meditative, linking slower movements, alignment and breath work. Each pose (asana) is held comfortably and longer than other yoga classes. This deep relaxation releases hormones that rebuild and regenerate the body. Class is ideal for beginners, those returning to exercise or for participants with minor injuries.

Soft Tai Chi/Qi Gong — This class emphasizes energy awareness and movement through traditional Qi Gong exercises. Class participants will work through gentle warm ups and balancing exercises while learning a short and long "set" or form, eventually working towards a portable self practice.

Strength & Balance — Improve your posture, balance and flexibility. Class consists of light strengthening with exercise bands, free weights, stretching and relaxation exercises.

Stride, Strength & Stretch — This class will meet up on the track, we will combine walking for cardiovascular conditioning with intervals of upper and lower body strength exercises using weights, bands, etc. Finishing with stretching exercises for a total body workout.

Tai Chi — Tai chi is a Chinese exercise system that uses slow, smooth body movements to achieve a state of mind/body relaxation.

Therapeutic Ballet — Grace, posture and movement come together. This class consists of classical barre work and floor routines to classical music with soft energy.

Yoga Basics — Beginner class working on basic asanas (poses) and flows with attention to alignment and breath awareness.
