Svelte combines many aspects of dance, fitness, pilates and yoga. It's instructed to firm, lift, and tighten your best assets while restoring the congested areas and improving your posture. Now let's plié and relevé our way to happiness.
In this short session we engage in quick bursts of energy to strengthen and build heat, followed by intermittent rests to recover. This concentrated practice demands focus and mental flexibility (since it's shorter, there's less time to build heat, so be sure to listen to your body if something feels like too much!). Great for a day when you need a short strong practice.
Our adductors and abductors are extremely important yet often overlooked muscles. In this short flow we move through a series of exercises designed to activate and strengthen them. This is a great warm-up for a longer balance-oriented class or simply a great way to loosen up quickly.
This class is aimed at getting your heart pumping while also strengthening and preparing your body for inversions! What you can expect: Wrists and shoulder warmup. Squats while holding a block overhead, V-ups, Tuck Handstand three variations to choose from, sit-ups, jumping into Straddle handstands, Straddle Lifts, Handstand Hop Switches.
15 uninterrupted minutes focused on building CORE STRENGTH. It will BURN and you will sweat and you might even shed tears. Our core center is a POWERFUL SOURCE. Feeling stronger in our center and in our bodies promotes courage and resiliency. GO ahead and dive into the challenge you won't regret it!
Our mantra for this class is Trust. Can you let go of fear and clinging and let things flow even if they don't always flow the way you hoped or thought they would? Build heat, and open your hips, shoulders and hamstrings. Core strengthening and options for arm balances along the way. This class does include a short period of silent (not lead) sun salutes!
Join Monica for a fun flow that targets, opens and strengthens all the major muscle groups with opportunities to wring yourself out, practice some standing balance poses, fire up your core, and then use your strong center to play with handstands! Ready? Grab your mat and let's have some fun!
