These classes and workshops are ideal for anyone new to yoga or those wanting to expand their practice.

Mindful Vinyasa

This dynamic and meditative form of yoga can be adapted to any level. Based on ashtanga yoga, the breath is synchronized with movement and postures to help build strength, open hips, shoulders and hamstrings, and detoxify the body. In this progressive practice, each class builds off what we did the previous week. Expert adjustments insure correct alignment. Instructor Kali Om has been teaching yoga since 1998 and is certified at the highest (ERYT-500) level.

  • Private Pilates

Private Pilates

Private Pilates is ideal for those looking for more one-on-one attention for their Pilates training, or even as an alternative to personal training. Instructors may utilize popular equipment such as Pilates reformers and Peak MVE chairs during sessions, which use pulleys and springs rather than body weight to create long, lean muscles.

Why Private Pilates

  • Create a lean, toned body
  • Increase strength, flexibility, and balance
  • Challenge deep abdominal muscles to support the core
  • Promote recovery from a strain or injury
  • Enhance mobility, agility, and stamina
  • Compliment sports training and develop functional fitness

About Our Instructors

All of our instructors hold a minimum 200-hour certification, and each instructor has a deep understanding of body movement, alignment, and anatomy. Instructors have backgrounds ranging from dance to fitness and have various areas of specialty, including post-rehab or sport-specific training. They are also available to simply help improve general fitness or to get in shape for an event!
