Gain strength, stamina, and stability—this workout is a great way to kickstart your week with major muscle moves, core strength, and more.


Work your fascia by kneading, rubbing, and stretching tissue in the hands, feet, legs, back, and shoulders. Enhance mobility, stability, and performance.

What is fascia? Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. 


Stretch & Strength
Build your strength, challenge balance, and improve flexibility in a dynamic and safe way. This class is a non-impact class.


Step, Weights & Aerobic Training
Get your blood pumping, give your brain a boost and strengthen your immune system with light cardio and hand weights.


Enjoy time to stretch and relax. Warm up, move through Hatha yoga and balance poses,
and end with time for relaxation.
