Pilates exercises increase range of motion and flexibility while improving circulation, posture, and abdominal strength. Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. While there are many forms, the exercises used can be relaxing and meditative. The breathing techniques are calming, and the exercises enhance flexibility, strength, and balance.

No prior exercise experience is needed. Click here for more information on class times and locations.
