Release / Open Studio Classes
The Release classes are a variety of open studio classes including The Shift, Roll and Release, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates Mat Classes. The shift was born from the idea that in an hour, we can begin to shift something physically, mentally and/or emotionally.
RELEASE: Open Studio Classes
No reformers here….classes held in this space inspire clients to discover and challenge themselves through alternative forms of movement and strengthening.
There’s always room for a shift. The shift was born from the idea that in an hour, we can begin to shift something physically, mentally and/or emotionally. In this 75-minute class, we progress from pilates mat work to a vigorous standing, primal rhythmic workout set to music. Throughout the class the overarching principal remains the same - what do you want to shift in your body or in your life? The more we give meaning to our movements; the more we can release stuck energy and express ourselves fully.
Roll + Release
Hit the floor and move. This class uses foam rollers, balls, and the floor to investigate where tension accumulates in our body. During class, different movements will massage fascia, coaxing them to relax and allowing for more range of movement.
Gyrokinesis has benefits similar to those derived from yoga, dance, Tai Chi, and gymnastics. It combines rhythmic breath patterns that gently work the entire body. Classes begin seated on stools. The warm up awakens the senses and stimulates the nervous system. This is followed by exercises focusing on the spine. Postures flow together smoothly, increasing range of motion, while preparing the body for the challenging exercises to come. Similar movements are expanded upon through floor work, providing additional opening of the joints. Once standing, the cardiovascular system is stimulated.
PILATES MAT CLASSES
Come get grounded. This mat class is a gem for sustaining back health and muscle tone. We mix in just the right amount of cardio vascular stimulation to get your heart pumping and bolster your immune system. You will feel grounded and energized after this one.
