Each class begins with a tai chi warm-up, followed by a traditional Yoga sun salutation to continue to prepare the body for work. Holding standing poses for a period of time for strength is followed by balance poses to improve balance and help prevent future falls. Hip exercises open up the hip area and help ease low-back pain. Pilates exercises for abdominals and back are incorporated to build a strong core. Forward bends stretch and lengthen tight hamstrings. Class concludes with 10 minutes of quiet meditation. Participants often find this part of class to be the most beneficial since many of us do not take time out of our very busy and stressfull lives to quiet our minds and bodies and relax.
Effectively tone and burn calories in this powerfully energetic cardio workout. Fueled by fresh and fun music, this martial-arts inspired class incorporates moves from karate, boxing, taekwondo and muay tai.
