GYROKINESIS® Mat Based Class *for Pelvic Floor Health

In this unique class you will be guided through a movement approach that will give you the potential to re-organize and strengthen the entire team of pelvic floor muscles .  You will learn how to optimize breathing and the role it plays in regulating intra-abdominal pressure, which in most cases help to significantly improve pelvic floor health as undiagnosed and chromic lower back and hip issues.

Through movement that reinforces GYROKINESIS® principles , you will also gain an awareness of postural alignment and diaphragm function while awaking the entire body , stimulating the nervous system and increasing range or motion.

This group class runs for a series of 5 weeks and is also available as a 'drop in' class if space is available.  Spots are guarenteed for those that sign-up for the series.

Zoom options to attend are available for this class.  Participants will  need a stool or chair and a yoga mat.

Ortho-Bionomy® is a gentle, non invasive form of bodywork that re-educates the body by facilitating its self corrective reflexes to find balance and ease.  This method, developed by an osteopathic physician Dr. Arthur Pauls, allows the practitioner to gently and effectively boost the body's ability to self-correct.  

We offer 60 minute and 90 minute sessions at the studio facilitated by our certified practitioner, Patty Thomas.  Please contact the studio for more information or to book a session.

Core Barre - Smart Movement®

Teacher Training or Small Group Sessions

CORE BARRE is a classical system of movement designed to create strength, flexibility and a balanced body. It is based on elements of Pilates, Ballet, and Athletic Conditioning and consists of high energy, low impact and fat burning exercises. 


The CORE BARRE movements exercise our bodies in such a manner that does not cause injury or further promote imbalances. Rather it strengthens all muscles and re-programs the body to move in the way it was naturally designed to. 


CORE BARRE participants quickly learn that engaging in a workout or class exercise does not have to mean ' no-pain, no-gain'. In fact, movements in CORE BARRE exercises are designed to be effortless, graceful, and energy generating, creating a meaningful and purposeful rhythm that is attuned to our bodies and surroundings.


We provide instructor training in the CORE BARRE System of Smart Movement® exercise modality for teacher training and continuing education.


CORE BARRE and it's complimentary workshops for continuing education make up  the Systems of Smart Movement® and offer intelligent and exciting programming choices for small group settings as well as private instruction.


Learn more about the three day teaching training aimed to inspire and invigorate the teacher, to deepen their own personal practice and to expand their knowledge base of biomechanics with a structured barre syllabus that truly promotes the beauty and Art of Smart Movement®.

What is the Art of Smart Movement®?

'Smart Movement® is an exercise system that is efficient, not wasteful.  It is constructive, not destructive.  It is informed, purposeful, precise, artful and well balanced!  It creates an awareness for mind and body and one that is rewarding to both the teacher and the participant.'
