High Barre’s barre fitness is a low impact class that helps tone all muscle groups, improves balance and posture, and increases flexibility. This ballet-inspired class is perfect for beginners who want to be more active but also proves challenging for any level. Some equipment used includes light weights, the ballet barre to aid with balance, resistance bands and a yoga mat for core work and stretching.

SLOW FLOW VINYASA YOGA
A class structured similarly to Vinyasa Flow class that includes sun salutations and flowing from one posture to the next, but the tempo is dropped and postures are held a little longer while moving more mindfully from one pose to the next. All levels of Yoga practitioners can find their personal challenges, as they slowly and mindfully move through a series.
Jenny Goninen, Instructor
Tuesdays 6:15-7:00 pm
Chair yoga is a gentle class, adapting yoga poses using a chair and other props (yoga blocks and bolsters, straps, blankets). Using a chair while seated or standing helps with support and balance. This class will include mindfulness and breathing exercises, along with gentle stretches and movements, and ends with a meditation. This class aims to improve well-being, increase mobility and strength, reduce stress, stretch the body and relax the mind. Props provided.

An ancient Chinese art form emphasizing the flow of energy through the body. Often described as ‘meditation in motion,’ Tai chi’s slow, circular movements are beneficial for improved balance, breathing, coordination and peace of mind. This weekly practice covers the basic elements of Tai Chi, including posture and breathing, beginning exercises and the Tai Chi Forms themselves. There will also be discussions on Tai Chi as a healthful practice and its benefits.

Saturdays 8:30-9:30 am
My flow class is based in the vinyasa and power yoga traditions. Vinyasa simply refers to the linking of breath and movement throughout a class; one movement, one breath. A typical flow class follows a bell pattern of warming up, a climax of powerful yoga poses and then winding down with some traditional yin yoga poses. You'll experience a full range of poses and motions in the class and work out most muscles in your body. Power yoga is based on yoga poses that start at the center of the body, the core, and work outwards. I use some core (stomach, sides and back) strengthening poses to help you find balance, creativity and playfulness in all of your yoga poses. This class is for beginners, intermediates and experts.

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 pm
A Latin-inspired dance workout that has become one of the most popular group exercise classes in the world. Zumba combines cardio and muscle conditioning while improving balance and coordination. Zumba takes the "work" out of workout and is often called exercise in disguise. It’s your weekly dance party!
