The Pilates Mini Band and Mini Balls are great tools to master because they are versatile, lightweight and can travel easily. In this workshop we will focus on working the glutes, outer thighs, hamstrings, and quads using mini band exercises. Then we’ll incorporate the mini ball for a great ab series, sideline work and attacking those inner thighs! You will work in every plane of motion – on your belly, on your back, on your side, standing and lunging, as well as rotational full body exercises.

Mini Band and Mini Balls are included with cost of workshop!

moves to Mondays at 3pm starting August 25th

Gyrotonic27Once called “Yoga for Dancers”, the GYROKINESIS® methodology uses gentle repetitive, spiraling, and undulating exercises in a set flow that work to decompress the joints of the body while increasing strength and flexibility. This low impact fitness system can be practiced by everyone regardless of age and fitness capacity.

The benefits of GYROKINESIS® training include:

  • Improves joint mobility and range of motion
  • Reduces stress, releases tension in your body
  • Increases your strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance
  • Increases circulation, energy, and cardiovascular health
  • Sculpts your body
  • Improves body awareness

During each GYROKINESIS® class the entire body is taken through seven types of spinal movement: rounding forward, extending backward, side arching left and right, rotating left and right, and moving in a circular pattern.

Classes are included in mat packages and will begin seated on a low padded stool and continue on to the floor.

This week 2 of our staff members received news that someone close to them was diagnosed with advanced cancer. Both people had felt experienced changes in their bodies…but they didn’t recognize these signs as serious indicators of disease.

Our goal at Studio Blue is to help you as healthy as possible. We do our best to help you gain strength and mobility, and to help you rehabilitate preexisting conditions, recover from surgery and reduce your pain.

But we also want to encourage YOU to listen to what your body is saying. As you grow older, you may think new aches and pains, weight loss or gain, increased fatigue, a change in skin tone, and other bodily changes are just part of the normal aging process.

However these and many other symptoms can be your body telling you that something is amiss. And early detection is the biggest contributing factor to preventing and/or curing life threatening conditions such as heart disease or cancer.

In the case of a heart attack, for example, many people know chest tightness or tingling in the left arm may signal an impending heart attack. But did you know upper back pain, shortness of breath and/or jaw pain can also be indicators of heart attack?

With cancer, the signs and symptoms depend on where it is, how big it is and how much it affects the organs or tissues. Early cancer warning signs can include fever, extreme tiredness, or weight loss. Cancer cells use up much of the body’s energy and they may release substances that change the way the body makes energy from food. Cancer may also cause the immune system to react in ways that produce these signs and symptoms.

If you’ve been overly fatigued recently, noticed unexplained weight loss or gain, or just don’t feel like yourself, pay attention to what your body is telling you and talk to your physician. Give yourself “a listen” today.

We want you to stay healthy and look forward to a long future together!
