Cardio Kickboxing 
This is a high-energy martial arts and aerobic-style workout. This class finishes with toning and gives low and high impact options.

Core and Balance: Beginner
To accommodate participants who either do not want to, or cannot, get down on the floor, this class is done standing at the barre. The class will focus on balance and gaining good posture through core strength. Class ends with standing flexibility exercises. It is recommended that participants register with the front desk to reserve a spot in the class up to 48 hours in advance.

Core: Intermediate
Increase your core strength while giving your back more flexibility. Learn how to engage your core properly to increase strength, control, balance, and posture. This class uses Pilates concepts to lengthen the core and is done primarily on the floor. It is recommended that participants register with the front desk to reserve a spot in the class up to 48 hours in advance. Please bring a yoga mat to class.

Core: Advanced
If you are ready for a change in your core workout and crave intensity, this class is for you. Enhance strength and stamina, and get closer to that athletic body you’ve been working for.

Aging Backwards/Age Reversing Stretch

In Aging Backwards/Age Reversing Stretch, you can help slow down and reverse the speed at which your cells die — so you can stay feeling young and vibrant as you age! This workout will restore movement in your joints, flexibility and strength in your muscles, relieve pain, and stimulate your cells to increase energy, vibrancy, and your immune system. This slow-paced, full body workout (640 muscles) is based on tai chi’s flowing movements for balanced health; ballet’s strengthening theories for long, lean, flexible muscles; and the healing powers of physiotherapy to create a pain free body. Created by the author of The New York Times bestseller, Aging Backwards and the new PBS show and book titled Forever Painless.
