PILATES MAT: ACCESSING YOUR CORE
with Heide

Wednesdays: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
January 4 - February 15: Seven weeks: $112
February 22 - April 5: Seven weeks: $112


Access your core by focusing on the powerful and deep muscles in the abdominal region and along the spine. Strengthening these muscles promotes good posture, spinal stability, and may free you from common injuries on and off the mat. Through the use of Pilates exercises and props, this class will build strength, flexibility, and stamina in the core and will also work on strengthening and stabilizing the muscles in the arms, shoulder girdle, and pelvis. It will follow a level 1 Pilates mat class set within a yoga class structure: beginning with yoga centering and ending in final relaxation.

YOGA AND MINDFUL EATING
with Amy

Tuesdays: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
January 10 - February 14: Six weeks: $96
February 21 - March 28: Six weeks: $96
Materials fee: $10

Imagine putting a halt to dieting altogether. Using mindfulness techniques, this six-week course is designed to teach you to tap into your body and trust that it knows when and how much to eat. Learn mindfulness techniques to combat stress eating in the moment and to help reduce urges that lead to overeating or bingeing. Guilt and shame have been shown to contribute to the vicious cycle of dieting, falling off the diet, feeling guilty over it, and then overeating again. This is no way to live. Learn to foster self-compassion and change your eating habits and your relationship with food forever.

Each class will begin with instruction on the concepts of mindful eating along with practical exercises. This will be followed with the yoga portion of the class which will be appropriate for students of all levels. This popular and successful program will help you to develop a stronger mind/body connection and move you toward an all-around healthier lifestyle. You may wish to sign up for both sessions which will vary slightly in order to reiterate the concepts for greater understanding and practice. No new students after the first class. A $10 materials fee by cash or check is due to the instructor at the first class; the materials fee will only apply once.
