Barre

Barre class is a full-body, hybrid workout class, combining ballet-inspired moves, pilates, yoga and strength training in order to increase overall strength and flexibility. The emphasis of isometric movements, and a small range of motion help to target specific muscle groups. This workout is low/non-impact, and modifications will be given to accommodate all ages and levels of fitness.

Corrective Exercises / Injury Prevention Workshop

This class is open to all humans that move their bodies (everyone), and will be helpful for active bodies to hone in on imbalances that may be impeding performance and/or learning how to prevent future injuries. With guidance from Alexis Robbins, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, BS in Exercise Science, and 5 years as a personal trainer, students will learn how to identify weak and/or tight muscle groups, habits that may be causing pain or tightness, strengthening and lengthening exercises and stretches, as well as basic self-myofascial release (foam rolling and ball work) techniques. The goal of this class is to have a better understanding of how to take care of our bodies in order to live long healthy lives as movers and people.

Grounding in Grace
