Our signature 60-minute barre class builds strength, sculpts muscles, increases flexibility, and improves well-being using proper alignment and form.


This high energy 45-minute mat class flows seamlessly from one exercise to the next, with options for low and high impact movements and an emphasis on the gluteals and core. Done entirely on a yoga mat, class will use light and heavy weights and may also utilize Core Balls, gliders, and resistance bands. Sneakers, bare feet, or socks can be worn for class.



This Vinyasa based yoga class is designed to combine strength and flexibility to allow students to make a deep connection to their core. Expect to feel both strong and restored after moving to thoughtfully curated music.
