Early Bird Pilates aims to develop core muscle tone, improve body alignment and joint flexibility. Each class will work to balance all muscle groups’ strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. Classes will blend the Classical Pilates Method with exercise variations by using props and light weights. Modifications are suggested for beginners or for those with physical limitations and will be closely monitored by the instructor. Pilates mat is a challenging yet safe method to sculpt your body and to feel increased agility and core control in your everyday movements.
Yamuna Body Rolling

Yamuna Body Rolling helps develop good posture, expand range of motion and develop a real sense of wellbeing. It is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.

Flow is an energizing yoga class that will challenge your body and mind. You’ll improve strength, flexibility, technique and focus as you move through a sequence of postures while staying connected to the steady rhythm of your breath. Suitable for everybody—beginner to intermediate variations given.
Yin is a prefect compliment and contrast to flow or fitness training. Expect relaxed, supported, long held stretches, working gently on the connective tissues—namely fascia—to restore flexibly and softness to the body. Yin postures merge your physical practice with stillness and silence, bringing you one step closer to a meditative mind. You’ll float out of class feeling open, relaxed, and amazing.
