May Promotion: Bring a friend or family member for $10 to any class. Discounted classes are one per person throughout May and open to new clients only. Some restrictions apply, please contact the studio for details.

We now offer 3 distinct styles: Community, Power, & Cardiolates
Community classes:
Classes that focus on core strengthening and structural alignment while building greater flexibility and overall tone. Instructional cues will emphasize the connections between mind and body, muscle firing patterns, and breath awareness. For all levels
Power classes: The pace will be more rigorous than in the Community level classes and more physically demanding exercises will be offered.
Experience required
Cardiolates: Jump sequences on the Reformer Springboard are the core
of the class with alternating sets of abdominal, leg, and hip work.
This class is perfect for those interested in pushing their limits
and zoning in on the lower body. Experience required
