A full-body stretching and toning workout that's great for most levels. This class builds strength, flexibility, speed, balance, and range of motion while releasing stress. Great for posture and complements all other sports and workouts. 

*ESSENTRICS (Open Level)
A class that allows you to work with rigor or in a relaxed mode. A great transition from Gentle Stretch to Essentrics. *This is available only for July and August on Sundays.

ESSENTRICS Gentle Stretch 
A gentler and slower-paced workout that restores full-body mobility while safely and slowly enhances strength and flexibility. Designed for people easing into exercising, recovering from surgeries, or those suffering from chronic pain, atrophy issues, or stiffness due to past injuries.
