Intro to Mat Pilates w/ Barbara

Intro to Mat Pilates w/ Barbara


with Barbara McGranahan

Calendar Next session starts Nov 6, 2023 at 5:15 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Beginner mat classes are for people who have never tried Pilates before, those who’ve had a substantial break from the practice, and for many of us whose bodies might have their fair share of quirks yet don’t require individual postural correction. With a focus on the breath and flow, Pilates exercises relieve stress and soothe aches and pains. With all the hunching, sitting, and planning we tend to do, the cues and corrections of each class will increase your postural and muscular awareness, both during class and the minute you step out of class. Mat required. ***NO CLASS: 11/20

Developing A Personal and Home Defensive Protection Plan


with Alice Bean Andrenyak

Calendar Next available session starts Nov 6, 2023 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week

This three-hour course is NOT about installing an alarm system. It is about adjusting your awareness around you as you move through your day and your home. It is about doing mental exercises to handle the “What if’s” to keep you and your loved ones safe. Learn situational awareness, conflict avoidance, and how to access your home’s defense. Part 1 of a 3-part series but can be taken separately.
