Pilates is a low-impact exercise that’s excellent for older adults and active seniors. Because it’s a mind-body exercise, pilates can help decrease chronic pain, reduce stress, blood pressure and heart rate and improve mood.
Our Pilates classes build coordination, improve posture, joint mobility and flexibility and can sometimes help relieve physical pain, including back pain. Practicing Pilates consistently provides a fantastic total body workout that’s suitable for any fitness level and promotes healthy aging routines and a better quality of life through regular physical activity.
The slower pace of Gentle Yoga makes it a great choice for those wanting a less strenuous approach to yoga. These relaxing classes incorporate deep breathing and stretching, and are incredibly therapeutic for both mind and body. Soothing music, breathing, rejuvenating postures, and deep relaxation combine for a full-body refresh. Whether it’s your first class or you’re an experienced senior yogi, Gentle Yoga is a rejuvenating, restorative experience.
Essentrics is a full-body stretch workout that focuses on mobility, flexibility, and pain relief. Slow, therapeutic stretches work to reduce joint stiffness and leave you pain-free, energized, and balanced through a combination of Tai Chi, Aerobics, Ballet, and Physical Therapy.
Essentrics engages all 650 muscles in the body using the flowing movements of tai chi and healing principles of physiotherapy, and in a 60-minute class, there are about 13 pre-choreographed routines using music.
