Being asked to describe yoga and aerobic classes in words on paper is like being asked to share an awesome vacation experience with pictures… it just doesn’t cut it. My heart felt response to anyone curious about a particular class on our fitness schedule is this…. give it a try! You’ve got nothing to lose. The hour you spend taking any one of our fabulous fitness classes, will more than make up for itself in what you gain in productivity and increased energy.
Membership to The Falls Studio is an additional fee and is required to attend Studio Classes. If you are interested in *Studio Membership please contact Shawn at 687-6080. Drop-in rates are available.
BALLEROBICA: Exclusively at The Falls. Basic ballet drills and combos along with a bit of cardio & abs designed to create long, lean muscles. All of this set to classical music, which is a type of therapy in itself. You’ll leave in a distressed and graceful state of mind.
DETOX YOGA: This is a Power Yoga class that focuses on poses designed to detoxify your body. Detoxify and rinse the spine through lots of twists and other poses that release toxins from your body. Detox yoga helps with weight control, clearing your skin, and increasing your energy! Practiced in a heated room between 88 and 90 degrees.
GENTLE HATHA YOGA: Hatha and art of alignment pay special attention to the structural nature of poses so your body can naturally realign itself in healthy patterns, and begin to heal and strengthen. Enjoy more seated and reclining poses with longer held stretches, and use props that help increase flexibility and balance. All levels are welcome.
INVERSIONS & ARM BALANCES: Focus on learning and refining inversions and arm balances. Strengthen your body, build confidence and develop a thrill of flying and a love of being upside down! This practice has the potential to expand your physical and emotional boundaries in a safe and controlled environment. All levels are welcome.
POWER FLOW YOGA: This is a more aerobic style class that improves strength and endurance. In this class, the poses are linked together with the breath. There is more fluid movement involved and thus, the pace in this class is quicker. Alignment direction is given for the poses, but there is an assumption that the student knows the basic forms of the poses.
RESTORATIVE YOGA: Our bodies have an innate ability to relax given the right circumstances. Restorative yoga uses a series of easy, supported poses held for a long time under the right conditions (including the use of many props) to tip the balance from “fight or flight” mode into maximal relaxation. Emphasis on complete muscular relaxation and comfort are emphasized to achieve a quiet state of mind and body.
HOT YOGA: Practicing yoga in a heated room helps to ease muscles and prevent injury when stretching. Hot yoga promotes total health by detoxifying the body through sweat and balancing every system in the body. Practiced in a heated room between 88 and 90 degrees.
