The TRX Pilates class begins with the fundamentals of Pilates. First, warming up the body through breath, proper alignment and core support, we then explore different planes of movement using the TRX suspension straps. Developed by The Navy Seals, TRX suspension training utilizes your own body weight and gravity allowing for full range movement and deep core conditioning. Like Pilates, TRX exercises improve overall functional fitness, developing greater strength, balance, flexibility and core stability, making them the perfect match. This class can be modified to any fitness level. All levels welcome!
Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR)
YBR is a fitness and therapy practice that combines healing, wellness, and injury prevention. It uses 6- to 10- inch balls to strengthen, tone, and realign the body to assist in fixing all sorts of problems, ranging from sciatica and herniated disks to fibromyalgia and low-back, neck, and shoulder pain. To practice YBR, you lie over the ball and literally roll out your muscles, almost like dough, following specific routines for all parts of the body. The ball applies traction that creates space around joints and vertebrae and lengthens muscles so they can fully release. YBR ball work improves core strength and releases restrictions caused by habitual movement patterns. “Even if you don’t exercise at all,” says Pilates Body Trainer Teri Smith, “YBR keeps you fit.”
