MindBody Classes


Pilates is the art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout when properly manifested. If practiced with consistency, it improves flexibility, builds strength, and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. It allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.


PiYo isn’t like standard Pilates and yoga classes that make you hold long, intense poses, or lead you through dozens of repetitive, microscopic core movements. PiYo speeds everything up, including your results, by introducing you to dynamic, flowing sequences that can burn serious calories as they lengthen and tone your muscles and increase your flexibility.

POP Pilates

Slow Flow Yoga

Slowing down a traditional vinyasa yoga class allows space to focus on alignment, breath, and mindful movement. Slow Flow Yoga is an excellent class if you are new to yoga, recovering from an injury, or just want to get back to basics. Optional vinyasa transitions, along with an emphasis on safe modifications, make it easy to adapt this practice to meet your personal needs.

Vinyasa Yoga (B)

Learn the basics of the Vinyasa yoga practice that combines breath with movement, resulting in a flowing and mindful practice that stretches and strengthens to bring balance to body and mind.


This dynamic practice flows through series of poses to build strength, balance, and flexibility. Sequences change from class to class, keeping the practice fresh while still building experience in traditional yoga poses. Throughout class, breath and movement are linked, making mindful focus a key part of your practice.
