The GYROTONIC® method is an orginal, and unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation, and enhances joint mobility, and coordination. GYROTONIC® exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterms. WIth GYROTONIC® exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.


STOTT PILATES® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates.
Lindsay and Moira Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, have spent over two decades refining the acclaimed STOTT PILATES® method of exercise and line of equipment. The refined method resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and Rehabilitation – making it one of the safest and most effective methods available.


Take a breath . . . inhale . . . be present . . . and exhale . . .
Yoga, meaning “to join” or “to unite”, is known to be the oldest physical discipline in existence dating back almost 5,000 years.
Yoga unites the practice of mastering postures (asanas), controlled breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dhyana), creating an ultimate harmony between the body, breath and mind. With a dedicated practice, physical benefits include toning and strengthening the entire musculoskeletal system working not only the “core”, but the density of the bones, mobility of the joints, elasticity of the connective tissues and stimulation of the internal organs and nervous system. We offer different styles of this practice including Gentle Yoga, Yin Yoga and Flow (vinyasa) Yoga.


TRX Suspension Training is a type of total-body resistance training that uses your own body weight and gravity, to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability, all while preventing injuries. Every exercise you have to engage your core. Now you may think that your core is just your abdominals, however it is more than that! Your core includes the pelvis, abs, back and chest muscles. It is this core that offers your body stability, balance and flexibility. Everything you do in your life starts with your core, whether it is bending over to pick up the pen you dropped on the floor, washing your car, playing basketball with your kids, or participating in an Ironman. A strong and stable core is important to help prevent injuries, not just in your low back but in your entire body. Just think of how developing good core strength and stability will only enhance your performance and way of life!
