C'mon, jump on in!
Jumpboard_3

Pilates Reformer Jumpboard Class


with Debi

Mondays from 10:00 - 10:55am

 

Why you should take this class:

Burn Calories Like a Pyromaniac!!

The added cardio element equals a mega-calorie burn and helps to increase stamina and reduce fatigue. It can sometimes prove exhausting for the first few times, but if you stay consistent, your energy levels are bound to increase.

Get a Kick Out of Finding Your Floating Form

The spring tension is less than the pull of gravity, giving you a longer hang time so you can really concentrate on your form in the air to bring your abs in, lengthen your tailbone on the mat, melt your shoulders away from your ears, keep the ribs buttoned and engage your thighs.

Get Abtastic!

On top of burning mega calories, using the Jumpboard is a great abdominal workout that challenges balance, coordination, and the core in a different setting strengthening your muscles.

Enjoy Low Impact Benefits

Since the reformer has taken gravity out of the equation, these jumps are low impact. (Even lower impact than on a trampoline.) Why is that good? Because it is joint-friendly while getting the same benefits of a high-impact workout!   Low-impact exercises actually help promote healing and recovery by keeping the joint mobile and increasing strength. Also, Pilates Jumpboard classes help to increase metabolism and helps in the conversion of ingested nutrients into the energy you need to function. It also helps to reduce stress and depression because when you exercise, your body emits endorphins, which are believed to be natural painkillers.

Get Your Heart Rate Up While Lying Down

During a Pilates Jumpboard routine, the heart moves at a quickened pace and the heart rate stays up for some minutes, burning calories. The movements make the muscles stronger and helps to shape the muscles, including the heart.
Lying down helps you keep your spine in optimal alignment for the movement. This is one training session you can take lying down!

Give yourself the gift of knowledge and self care for your back!

For all those new to Iyengar yoga and the practice of back care, as well as those that are seasoned practitioners and want to learn and practice with a focus on the back. This class moves a bit slower than your regular yoga or fitness class, emphasis is the step-by-step guidance for setting up the poses and working with the back. 

We will work with principles of alignment, lengthening the spine, creating joint space, using the breath and breathing awareness, experiential anatomy and yogic principles of practice. For all types of structural problems, including pain and postural problems, including scoliosis, knees, hips, neck and shoulder issues. All new students must take the Intro Workshop before attending the Back Care Series.

“I highly recommend the Back Care series with Patricia Videgain to anyone with any type of back or neck issue. After hurting my back several months ago, I was afraid that I would not be able to return to yoga or regular exercise. Through Patricia's instruction I am now nearly pain free. I have learned how to modify my yoga practice and work through the inevitable occasional flare-up as I continue to gain strength, flexibility, and balance.” – Vera M.

Back Care Series: $175

Bamboo_with sunlight
Strength & Ease:  Vinyasa Fow with Yoga Nidra

with Leslieann

Wednesdays, 9:00 - 10:15am

This class combines the strength-building focus of a vinyasa flow with the restful power of yoga nidra, which means “yogic sleep”. Much like the tensing of a muscle and then relaxing it, the combination of vinyasa with yoga nidra will leave you feeling energized and empowered to take on your day with ease.

For the first 30 minutes:Move through an active asana practice that will engage the body energetically as preparation for deep relaxation.

 

During the following 45 minutes:Be guided through yoga nidra, a yoga practice that takes you inward, away from outer experiences.

Some benefits of this practice include:

  • A balanced nervous system
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved memory
