PILATES

Price not
available

with Angela Luem

Mat Pilates is a gentle form of 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 link to zoom 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 Pilates sessions visit alfapilates.com  Please preregister, which allows for individuals to be contacted with link, payment options, and other information.

REBUILDING ENERGY AND ENDURANCE AT ANY AGE - ONLINE

$37

with Carole Freeman

Breathe new life into your body. Literally! 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 breath. And not only your breath but the quality of your breathing pattern and function. Learn how you and your respiratory system can be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all of those cells that keep you moving. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts and ends with the strength of your respiratory system. No matter how long you train or how hard you work out when your breathing gives out - your body follows. This pre-recorded, on-demand 3-6 week class allows you to view course content where/when it is most convenient. In addition, you will have access to downloadable resources, exercises, and activities. Preregistration is required to receive online link. Online at your convenience.

About Carole: Carole Freeman is a Respiratory Therapist and Breathing Specialist and holds a graduate degree in Health Sciences from Loma Linda University Medical Center. She focuses on the relatively new field of pulmonary medicine in recognizing and treating breathing disorders.
