Pilates Mat

Katie Hotia

5:00 PM

This safe, steady paced mat class is welcome to beginner and intermediate level students and is designed to bring awareness and build strength to the corset of muscles that are the core or "powerhouse" of the body. Pilates is active stretching - while toning and shaping your waistline, pilates exercises simultaneously release jammed areas in the hips, low back and your entire spine. This class will pay special attention to releasing neck and shoulder tension while helping to create a lovely toned upper body and strong, shapely arms. A variety of props will be used including the magic circle, the mini-barrel, small hand-weights and foam rollers. Be ready to work hard, work deep and have fun!

Ashtanga Inspired

11:00 AM

"Eight Limb Path" inspired by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. In this open class, practice at your own pace; learning of this method involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of precise postures, producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light-strong body and calm mind.
