All of our classes are Basic Skills classes, which focus on the most foundational exercises to restore optimal muscle length and introduce your body to new motor skills. These are not “easy” classes or just for beginners, but classes that teach the essential motor skills every human machine should master.

Intro to Alignment Class
Now offered MONTHLY for only $10! (RSVP Required, Space Limited)
In an Intro to Alignment class, we teach the foundational concepts of "what is alignment and why does it matter". This is the introduction to the language we use, as well as the basic exercises we do most frequently- those that are the essentials for most of us- and the beginnings of how to improve how you walk. This is a great class to invite friends and family to learn the fundamentals of alignment.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


The Balanced Body: One of the most valuable aspects of Restorative Exercise is the fact that by performing these corrective exercises and gradually adopting new ways of moving your body throughout your day, you get stronger, improve balance, and are less likely to fall. You also get to work on imbalances within the body that might be factors in some musculoskeletal issues, tension, or pain. This class addresses both kinds of balance.

Roll Out the Tension: Using sustained pressure and a variety of tools (foam rollers and soft balls primarily), myofascial release is a technique that helps to free up fascial restrictions throughout the body. This class will help you release deep tension in the muscles and fascia. And the more you do it, the better it feels!

Strong & Supple: We want a body that is strong and moves with ease. Cycling through lower body, upper body, and core, you will work on exercises and moves that restore suppleness and build strength.

Core & More: The core musculature is so important not only to the health of our spine and pelvis, but our vital organs as well. While you can’t just work on the “core” without addressing the alignment of everything below, it is beneficial to spend concentrated time on one area of the body. This class will give you an opportunity to do that and will also teach you some ways you can sneak more “core strengthening” into your daily life!

Slow Weights: This class is a continuation of our mindful full body workout which focuses on moving with the breath. This class will really appeal to those of you who miss your "traditional" exercise class format, but still want to work in a way that promotes a healthy body and is restoring to your alignment. Benefits include improved stability, muscle toning, balance, and relaxation. We use very light weights (1-3lbs), and move from a stability ball (or chair) to standing to the floor and move slowly to create an almost zen-like experience that fools you into thinking you're not working very hard. After all, they're only 2lb weights! You'll love it!

Stretch It Out: Stretching just feels good. Right? But if you’ve been practicing Restorative Exercise for a long time, you might spend so much time hyperfocused on alignment points, that you miss out on some of the feel- good benefits of stretching all of your muscles around all of your joints. This class will leave you feeling open, relaxed, and mobile.

Whole Body Alignment: Head to toe alignment is what it’s all about! Stretch and strengthen the whole body to improve circulation, reduce pain, build strength, and increase flexibility.

CLASS ETIQUETTE & FAQs


If you have had recent surgery, have a joint replacement, have a current injury, or any special information that would be helpful to keep your body safe during class and help you to get the most out of class, PLEASE INFORM THE INSTRUCTOR PRIOR TO THE START OF CLASS.

  • Please arrive a few minutes before class begins: This will give you time to gather your equipment for class, set up your mat, and will allow you to progress safely through class and get the greatest benefits, as well as avoid disrupting the instructor and your fellow students with your late arrival.
  • Please bring your own mat to class. A sticky yoga mat is best, as it provides necessary traction during certain exercises.
  • Please bring a water bottle.
    We have all the equipment we use in class available for you, but you are welcome to bring your own half dome, block, strap, etc. if you prefer.
  • NO Cell Phones: when you enter the building please set your cell phone to silent (not vibrate) and leave it in a cubby (or your car).
  • Mat/Mirror Space: When setting up your mat before class, be conscientious of other students around you. Try to stagger your mats so that everyone has access to see themselves in the mirror.
  • Clothing: Wear loose-fitting clothing that is comfortable to move in, but that covers well (too short or too loose shorts may not be the best choice). No shoes during class.
  • Mat: Please take your mat home with you when you leave. Due to space and hygiene issues, we cannot store students’ mats. If you leave it in the studio, it automatically becomes a loaner.
  • If you forget your mat, we do have some loaners. If you borrow a mat, please clean it when you are done.
  • Scents: Please do not wear scented lotions or perfumes to class.
  • Housekeeping: At the end of class, please clean all equipment you used and return it to its spot. Also clean any mirror space used to keep the mirrors fingerprint-free.
  • IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR NEED HELP DURING CLASS, PLEASE ASK THE INSTRUCTOR. The most important things in class are that you are safe and that you are learning.
