Mat Pilates w/ Barbara: Session II

$65

with Barbara McGranahan

Calendar Nov 14, 2022 at 5 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 CLASSES: 10/10 & 10/17

Yoga, All Levels

$65

with Barbara McGranahan

Calendar Jan 11, 2023 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Yoga is one of the oldest "holistic" health-care systems in existence, focusing on both the mind and body. Through the practice of yoga postures and breath work, you can connect with your body and mind and discover your spirit; yoga is the art of listening to all parts of your Self. Hatha yoga postures linked with the breath have a powerful effect on all systems of the body providing the energy to age gracefully, stay fit, improve circulation and posture, loosen and lengthen knotty muscles, reduce stress, increase bone density, and promote relaxation at the end of the day. Please bring a yoga mat. Recommended props include a cushion and/or yoga blanket, blocks, bolster, and strap. Covid 19 safety protocols will follow state and school district recommendations for in-person events.
