Class Descriptions

Nia

Nia is an expressive body-mind-spirit movement program that offers an artistic and innovative approach to fitness and healing. Blending aspects of martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts, Nia provides a variety of movement dynamics to create an experience that is full-bodied, as well as full-spirited. The stillness and concentration of tai chi, the dynamic poses of yoga, the explosive power of martial arts, and the grace and spontaneity of modern and ethnic dance make it possible to create a whole new sense of well being! The use of eclectic, rich music, guided imagery, powerful kinesthetic cues, and heart-felt joy add to the full experience of a Nia class. This class is designed to work with your body's way and is for all levels and all ages, beginners are always welcome.

Watch Nia in Action!

Barre Body

No experience required! Does your work-out routine need a makeover?

Defined Motion has created a high intensity, low impact class that focuses on sculpting and elongating muscles, strengthening the core and raising the heart rate for a complete body work out experience. Students will be led through a series of exercises at the ballet barre that are designed to trim, tighten and tone the body. Barre Body exercises use isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. This class is pretty pacy and powerfull. The efficient use of bodyweight exercises, light hand weights and props delivers a dynamic toning class that works fast!

Restorative Flow & Strengthening Yoga

Restorative flow and strengthening is available to EVERY BODY. This class will start with a short meditation and or a restorative posture designed to quiet the mind and slow the nervous system, reconnecting with oneself. We will flow slowly holding postures longer to cultivate alignment, strength, and integration. Each class will be intelligently sequenced leading to a peak posture designed to strengthen and challenge the body and mind. Class will end with a gentle restorative pose integrating body, mind and spirit encouraging harmony and balance on and off the mat.
