    • Chair Yoga: This exercise class is perfect for people who want to practice yoga without going on the floor.  We start with a short meditation, breathing exercises, different poses (asanas), balance exercises, standing poses using the chair for balance, stretches to improve flexibility and we complete with another meditation.
    • Yoga: We start the practice with a short meditation to connect the body and mind together.  After the pranayama exercise (breathing exercise), we continue with different asanas ( yoga poses).  The practice can be a nice flow or holding asanas for a few breathes.  We finish the practice by resting on our backs in savasana.
    • Yogalaties is a mix of Yoga and Pilates where the focus is mostly on core, posture, body alignment and flexibility.
    • Circuit Training Exercise for all Fitness Levels: Circuit training is a class in which you do one exercise for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then move to the next exercise. The exercise pattern may alternate between an aerobic activity (like skipping) and a muscle-strengthening activity (like using weights or body weight). There are rest times between exercises and exercise sets.
    • 30-Minute HIIT Workout: Cardio and strength intervals (HIIT, Boot Camp style).  All exercise can be adapted and modified following your fitness level or condition.
    • Aquatic class: Improve your cardiovascular capacity, range of motion, flexibility, balance, core, posture and strength by doing different exercise in the pool (3-4 feet deep).  Excellent exercise program for people with joints replacement, Parkinson disease, arthritis, lose weight or simply to improve your overall well-being.
