MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH

This small, instructor-lead, group class is designed for those who have experienced or are currently in challenging health situations. Heart attack, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and auto-immune illnesses are all examples of chronic conditions that we will address through exercise. This class includes a light warm-up and a supervised workout in the Wellness Center. Non-members may receive a 7 visit complimentary pass with doctor referral.

BALANCE AND STRENGTH

We use a variety of props such as weights, bands, and balls, in addition to chairs and the wall. All exercises are designed to build core and overall strength, and to improve balance.

MELT

The MELT Method is simple self-care using soft balls and a soft body roller to reduce the negative effects of aging and an active life. The MELT Hand and Foot Treatments are “global” treatments, where we treat the hands and feet to stimulate a whole body response using small balls. The MELT Soft-Foam Roller is designed for localized work throughout the body, using very specific techniques to achieve results. MELT helps restore fluidity, flexibility, and relieve pain by reducing connective tissue dehydration. You’ll learn to easily support your own resilience, reduce and prevent pain, improve athletic performance, and reduce recovery time.

TAI CHI

Yang Style Tai Chi is an ideal way to embody change and recover resilience. Find your inner tortoise, strengthen your legs and back, soften tension, and quiet the mind.

Specific benefits include decompressing joints, hydrating tissue and muscles, improving energy, and enhancing longevity.
