Safe, Effective Core Training: Beginner Friendly! with Tracy Stafford Sun, Jan 20, 2019 at 1:15 pm - 3:15 pm
In these 2 hours we will work slowly and deliberately to wake up your core, lengthen and decompress your spine, relieve your lower back, stretch out your hips, and practice the art of deep, mindful breathing. You will leave feeling strong and relaxed simultaneously. This class is a perfect gateway for newcomers to Pilates to then go into our small group classes, but it's also appropriate for those with experience who want to deepen their core connection.

Lower Body S.O.S with Tracy Stafford Sun, Mar 3, 2019 at 1:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Clinical studies have shown that the amount of arthritis in the joints is LESS of a factor than STRENGTH in terms of pain and quality of life. Muscular strength is the #1 factor in improving hip, knee and foot pain due to arthritis, plantar fasciitis & other chronic conditions of the lower body. Core strength is often thought to involve just the abdominal muscles, but in fact there are core muscles for the hips, knees, feet, and the rest of the body that sustain intrinsic strength and alignment. Learn the best exercises to strengthen, stretch and empower the lower body. This workshop is perfect for handling a season of icy sidewalks! handouts of all exercises will be provided. $40
