Body Conditioning / Strengthening / Therapeutic Rehabilitation:
Dance Pilates Conditioning
No experience necessary. Stretching and strengthening of the whole body using the techniques of Joseph Pilates. Exercises may be done standing or on the floor. Helps to develop proper balance of spinal stability and mobility.
No experience necessary. Classical and Contemporary Mat Pilates. Stretching and strengthening of the whole body from the technique of Joseph Pilates. Pilates is a Core/Power-House driven for a complete body workout.
Focuses on controlled movements that progress from multi-planar soft tissue techniques to improve full range of motion, combat the effects of gravity and muscle imbalances. By stretching after properly warmed-up, you can decrease passive resistance of ligamentous joint capsules, tendons and muscle.
Stretch Essentials offers a dynamic way using Dynabands to help develop normal extensibility of soft tissues that allow full range of motion of a joint. Primary focus is to improve flexibility safely, effectively while increasing function and daily life.
Pas de Barre: (NEW)
A perfect class if you are just starting back to dance or are interested in improving your fitness condition. A combination of ballet, modern dance and Pilates exercises designed to develop a strong, lean body. This is a comprehensive and holistic approach to the body that can be used by anyone. Former and present dancers, or those who truly want to learn more about how a dancer trains for conditioning will find this course to be most beneficial.
Attentive focus is placed on dance technique, postural alignment, building inner physical strength, balance and stability, coordination, mobility and flexibility. This class includes related warm-up, floor work and core exercises, standing barre and center movement dance patterns.
Pas de Barre focuses on all aspects of the essentials for improving body awareness, building strength in the weak link areas and helping to increase mobility where joints have become stiff and more difficult to move. Modifications are presented for physical limitations and encouraged to ensure a safe and effective training experience.
Our bodies are made to move with fluidity, not restricted to only small compartmentalized movements. This course was designed to return to the foundation of dance and art of movement, to help get back what may have been lost or recover as best possible what has been injured.
Footwear: Barre work can be done in jazz or ballet shoes, socks or bare feet if comfortable.
Foam Rolling - A method of self-administered therapeutic massage using a foam roller that helps to release soft tissue tension that causes restrictions in the myofascial (fibrous framework of connective) tissue of the body. Helps with injury rehabilitation and prevention.
Helps to hydrate the fascia of muscles, ease muscle soreness, combats chronic pain, accumulated stress caused by repetitive postural dysfunctions or functional compensation gaps. Restores and improves range of motion, flexibility, and performance.
Choose a foam roller that accommodates your personal preference for density – softer or harder surface. Rolling is not a pain tolerance test, so apply moderate pressure to the areas that feel the most tension and try to relax into the targeted areas.
