CURRENT CLASSES OFFERED AT THE R3FINERY
This class is designed for someone new to yoga or for an experienced student who would like to return to basics and refine their practice. Students can expect to learn: an introduction to yoga philosophy, the basics of meditation and breath work, how to transition into and out of poses safely, a better understanding of body awareness and be exposed to a variety of yoga poses. This class will include components of flexibility, mobility, balance and strength work.
This class has a heavy emphasis on alignment and breath work. Students will benefit from having prior knowledge of basic yoga poses and sequencing. By limiting the size of the class, the teacher is able to offer modifications or advance each pose to accommodate for different levels and individual needs. Each class will be based in yoga philosophy and include meditation, warm up, sun salutations, flow and cool down. All classes will include more dynamic components of flexibility, mobility, balance and strength work.
All Levels Reformer
Currently, we are offering an "all levels" reformer class - all levels are invited to join and the class will be taught to the level of the class. The foundation of these classes is from the traditional pilates repertoire, but innovative twists on traditional exercises should be expected. While this is predominately an equipment-based class, props and some mat exercises will be included.
While all classes are based on traditional Pilates exercises, expect a contemporary twist with a large focus on exercises to improve posture and alignment. This class has a heavy focus on learning and mastering body control and utilization of correct musculature vs. compensatory strategies.
A shorter class that is a fusion of both pilates and yoga. This class was designed for the "desk life crew", so that those individuals can get a short break from work that includes nice stretch and body lengthening
A class designed for teens that is a fusion of reformer pilates and yoga. This class is held Monday-Thursday after school and is offered as a "membership" or "drop-in" class. The idea is that consistent performance of pilates and yoga will not only help maintain proper posture, but will also improve athletic performance, mobility, stability, and strength.
