Adult Ballet — Develop muscle tone, core strength, balance and grace. Ideal for those who are ex-dancers and have no dance experience.

Barre Class — This class combines isometrics, dance conditioning and interval training to quickly firm and elongate participants’ musculature. This is a targeted workout designed to flatten the abdominal area, lift the buttocks and increase muscle definition in the upper body.

Cardio Ballroom Dance — Enjoy learning the Foxtrot, Waltz, Country, Latin (Samba, Tango, Rumba) to worldly music. Low impact while learning techniques and breaking a sweat.

Chair Yoga — A gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support.

Dance 101 — This class is for beginning dancers and those who want to review choreography from Just Dance (T/F). Come learn salsa, merengue, cumbia, hip hop moves in addition to basic dance patterns. This is a low impact format for all levels. Class meets on the 2nd Monday of every month.

Gentle Yoga — Yoga for active older adults, beginners or those looking for a gentler, more fundamental approach. This class will educate your body on the basics of yoga flows and asanas (poses) while improving alignment and flexibility.

Hatha Yoga — A physical approach to yoga connecting postures, movement and breathing.

Just Barre — This class combines isometric, dance conditioning and interval training to quickly firm and elongate participants' musculature. This is a targeted workout designed to flatten the abdominal area, lift the buttocks and increase muscle definition in the upper body.

Mindful Flow Yoga — This format is slower than Vinyasa Flow. However, it is not any less challenging. Mindful Flow combines flow with longer holds.

Pilates Fusion — Using a variety of Pilates tools you will experience a full body workout to enhance balance, stability and core strength.

Pilates Mat — A series of mind-body exercises evolving from the principles of Joseph Pilates. Class increases core strength, balance and flexibility.

Power Yoga — Nourish your mind, body and spirit in this invigorating workout. Poses (asanas) are sequenced together and linked with the breath to create a flow (vinyasa) of exercise. Increase strength, improve flexibility, reduce stress and bring balance into your life with this challenging class. Prior yoga experience is strongly encouraged.

Pre & Postnatal Yoga — This is an all-level yoga class that explores the full range of yoga positions. Emphasis is placed on improving balance and flexibility in all muscle groups. Participants are challenged physically while simultaneously achieving a meditative state. Modifications are made for our pre and postnatal students. Learn more about our Pre and Postnatal Classes.

Restorative Yoga — This class is slow and meditative, linking slower movements, alignment and breath work. Each pose (asana) is held comfortably and longer than other yoga classes. This deep relaxation releases hormones that rebuild and regenerate the body. Class is ideal for beginners, those returning to exercise or for participants with minor injuries.

Soft Tai Chi/Qi Gong — This class emphasizes energy awareness and movement through traditional Qi Gong exercises. Class participants will work through gentle warm ups and balancing exercises while learning a short and long "set" or form, eventually working towards a portable self practice.

Therapeutic Ballet — Grace, posture and movement come together. This class cosists of classical barre work and floor routines to classical music with soft energy.

Therapeutic Yoga — The flowing bodywork of yoga will help alleviate health issues and promote a better quality of life by improving muscle function and managing the pain of arthritis, cancer and osteoporosis. Registration and fee apply. Learn more about Therapeutic Yoga.

Total Body Yoga — A multi-level class incorporating breathing, balance and limited strength work. Expect a slow and easy flow, moderate standing poses and leisurely floor stretching. This class is appropriate for both new and experienced yoga practitioners and perfect for runners and cyclists! We make modifications for pre/postnatal students and those with injuries.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga — A vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga with flowing poses and sequences linked to the breath.

Yoga Basics — Beginner class working on basic poses (asanas) and flows with attention to alignment and breath awareness.

Yoga Sculpt — A safe, upbeat fusion of flow yoga and body weight moves that target all areas while still maintaining a strong focus on breathing and final relaxation. While challenging, this class will include modifications, both up-leveling and easier options, to a breezy, uplifting soundtrack.

Yoga Tune Up® — A therapeutic class using therapy balls and other props to relieve aches and pains while improving posture and performance.
