BREATH-TAKING AT NIGHT

$37

with Carole Freeman

Improper breathing during sleep is the #1 reason why so many people are sick and tired. This class teaches you how to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, stop snoring and wake up feeling rested. You and I know that you can’t possibly have your highest brain power, perform your best, and function at your highest level when you are chronically fatigued and drained from lack of deep, restful sleep. You’d be shocked at how many health disorders are related to, or even caused by, faulty breathing during sleep. While many people feel there’s nothing they can do about snoring or frequently waking at night, they’d be just as surprised to know there’s more you can do about it than you think. Preregistration is required to receive online link.

HIGH ALTITUDE VACATIONING

$37

with Carole Freeman

If you are planning a mountain vacation in 4-6 weeks, take this class now! High Altitude Vacationing is for people who are planning to vacation in a mountainous region. The higher altitude reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the body’s tissues, including the brain. You may have heard of people who go to Denver or other high altitude locations, to train for elite sports. But we won’t need an elaborate training center. You’ll progress through 10 exercises over 4 to 6 weeks that will help your body begin to adapt to the higher altitude while still at home at sea level. Changes in your body will include an increase in red blood cells, giving your blood more oxygen carrying capacity prior to your vacation. You will learn a more functional breathing pattern that gives greater tissue oxygenation and less shortness of breath. Using this new, more optimal breathing pattern will allow you to maintain a higher oxygen level and ease of breathing while on vacation. Preregistration is required to receive online link.

REBUILDING ENERGY AND ENDURANCE AT ANY AGE - ONLINE

$47

with Carole Freeman

Yes, it’s true, you can breathe new life into your body. Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system. The course is presented as if the student will give themselves at least 3-6 weeks to implement the exercises and techniques. Preregistration is required to receive online link. Online at your convenience.

PILATES

Price not
available

with Angela Luem

Mat Pilates is a gentle exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. Mat Pilates is based on the original exercises Joseph Pilates developed to strengthen his own body as a very young man and then began teaching others. The Mat work came before any of the Pilates equipment he developed. It includes many exercises, can be practiced anywhere, and is easily modified for any age, body, or fitness level. Pilates is wonderful for every body of every age. Balance, strength, flexibility, focus, and your breath are all areas you may notice have changed with age. Pilates, at its core, works on improving all of those things. We meet virtually online. ALFA Pilates sends a zoom link one hour before the class begins. You will need a device to attend the class on, a mat, and enough space to move around. For information on more Pilates classes and private sessions visit alfapilates.com.  Please pre-register, which allows for individuals to be contacted with link, payment options, and other information.
