Santosha Yoga- Hatha Flow
This form of Hatha yoga integrates the Iyengar method in a series of breath-initiated poses with emphasis on proper body alignment.  Hatha Flow allows students to hold poses long enough in order to integrate the benefits of each pose before moving into the next posture.  This class improves strength, flexibility, stamina, and posture, which will enhance well-being and contentment.

Elixir Pilates and Wellness- Mat Pilates
Pilates mat is a focused mind-body exercise to help you center, relieve stress and strengthen your core muscles; abdominals, hips, back, and glutes.  The exercises focus on stabilization of the torso and keeping the abs firing while working other muscles groups to create better balance, toning and strength. This is a classical pilates mat class with progressions suitable for all levels.

Super Sculpt Class
This non-impact and low aerobic workout tones and sculpts your body into that lean and mean look.  Weights, body bars, bands, balls, gliders, and more are used to strengthen and tone your entire body.

Step Aerobics Class
This is high-energy class is 30-40 minutes of aerobic step combinations, followed by some toning work and stretching.  A great fat burner.
