Aqua Yoga — Yoga in the water is an exciting way to begin or continue your yoga practice. The feeling of weightlessness in the water takes the stress out of challenged joints and stabilizes them to free muscular tightness or discomfort. A practice of mostly standing postures (head stays above water) are presented with props and modifications, making the practice of yoga accessible to EVERY BODY. Both beginning and experienced yogis welcome!.

Core Conditioning — 25-minute class strengthens and stabilizes the entire core: rectus abdominis, obliques, hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings and lower back extensor muscles. Cutting-edge floor work and stability ball exercises are used to enhance abdominal definition and increase core strength.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) — Improve your cardiovascular capacity and core strength with repeated short bursts of intense effort followed by less intense recovery efforts.

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.

Tai Chi — Tai chi is a Chinese exercise system that uses slow, smooth body movements to achieve a state of mind/body relaxation.

WERQ — Is the wildy addictive cardio dance class based on the hottest pop and hip hop music. The workout is nonstop with repetitive athletic moves and fresh dance steps, so you get the best sweat.

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.

Zumba — An aerobic dance class featuring movements inspired by various styles of Latin American as well as modern American dance.
