Hatha is a very general term that can encompass many of the physical types of yoga. These classes are slower paced, gentle and provide a good introduction of the basic yoga poses. All levels are welcome. Be prepared to get that deep slow stretch focusing on alignment, breath, “pranayama”,and recover from old injuries.

In Resorative Yoga, props are used to support the body. This allows the body to hold positions longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. Resorative postures are usually adapted from supine or seeded yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. All levels welcome. These classes are idea for people dealing with health related problems,old injures and high blood pressure.
Warm yoga is a safe & healthy alternative to hot yoga. The room is heated to 80-85 degrees. The benefits of warm yoga are increased blood circulation, detoxification of the body, and relaxing heat that helps increase mobility & flexibility as well as a chance to help purify mind, body, and spirit.
Like Hatha, Vinyasa is a general term that is used to describe many different types of classes. Vinyasa, which means “breathed-synchronized movement”, tends to be a more vigorous style based on the performance of a series of poses called “sun salutations”, in which movment is matched to the breath. A Vinyasa class will typically start with a number of sun salutations to warm up the body for more intense stretching that’s done at the end of class.
"Body sculpt" Consist of a variety of workouts such as Turbokick, Tabata, circuits, intervals, obstacle courses, weight lifting and toning. All of these workouts either individually or a combination for each class will focus on burning Max calories and Max fat burn through a simple formula: cardio + toning = body sculpting. It is necessary to incorporate both aspects into your workout for this reason, take this for example: a person who is pear shaped only does cardio that persons results will be a smaller pear shape. A person who does cardio + toning will become a smaller different shape (aka sculpting the body. ) Each workout will be different which will confuse the body and not allow muscle memory to set in. This is beneficial because if muscle memory sets in the body stops changing and it takes a higher intensity of "more of the same" to continue seeing results. So with all of theses factors playing in on this simple formula the client will see results and begin to sculpt their body. This is a journey and a lifestyle it's not just a class. As a PTA I expect my clients to be educated in my class about the body and take what they learn in class into their life with a better understanding of health and well-being.
Pilates is a great compliment to any yoga practice. With a strong emphasis on core strength and controlled, stabilized movements, all exercises are done with the intention to maintain or develop proper spinal alignment while enhancing safe levels of flexibility. This style of Pilates incorporates mat-based exercises with the use of light resistance for better stabilization. Similar to Yoga, Pilates is also a mind-body exercise with an emphasis on proper breathing techniques to support the body. All levels welcome!
