Barre & Pilates Inspired
Align Define is a full body barre workout that fuses the best elements of ballet, conditioning, and stretching for a unique and fun experience. Classes begin with a warm up focusing on postural alignment, followed by a combination of upper and lower body exercises using light weights, resistance bands, as well as weighted and unweighted balls. Afterward, we head to the mat for core work and close with an invigorating final stretch. In this intelligent barre class you will move from larger movements that get your heart pumping to “feel-the-burn” pulses and isometric holds, efficiently toning and sculpting your body.
Align Fusion combines the muscle defining techniques of barre workouts with contemporary Pilates moves for the ultimate in conditioning and alignment. Expect a full body mat workout that incorporates light weights, resistance bands, magic circles, weighted and unweighted balls, and gliders. You will find yourself walking taller and stronger after this postural alignment conditioning class.
Align Core is a total body and mind workout with an emphasis on the power center, or core and abdominal muscles. This is an expansion of classic Pilates mat exercises in a low impact environment to reduce stress on the joints. The class will work to build core strength, lengthen and tone muscles, and find a rejuvenating breath system. Classes at times will incorporate props including foam rollers, blocks, weighted balls, unweighted balls, resistance bands, and gliders. Expect to finish things off with some foam rolling.
Foam Rolling (a.k.a self myofascial release) is a cure for our active lifestyles. Foam Rolling helps to release muscle tightness and trigger points, as well as increasing blood flow and circulation, allowing you to train harder and reduce injury. This class combines foam rolling, the four forms of stretching (static, dynamic, passive and active), and tops it off with restorative yoga poses! This is a class not to miss. Warning you will become addicted!
