Flexibility Technique – This beginning level drop in class is designed to safely and systematically acheive incredible gains in flexibility by drawing elements from Gymnastics, Ballet and Mongolian Contortion. Flexibility is something that can be dramatically and safely improved at any age. As an added bonus, a well rounded flexibility program is an incredible workout! Flexibility training requires specific scientific understanding of joint function, alignment, muscle composition/connection, stabilization and loads. Beyond correct passive stretching alignments we will explore: the formula to safely build active (useful) flexibility, adaptive response times (frequency and duration), proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), partner stretching and concurrent strength training.
Family Fitness – Bring your own baby and get back into fitness! This is a class that uses a variety of different techniques like the TRX, mobility and body weight exercises to get new parents back to having that rocking bod! Babies can be incorporated using the Baby Bjorn, making the exercises interactive or you can keep a close eye on your baby while you work out. Toddlers are also welcome and we can provide child care for an extra small fee.
*This is not a class where we exercise the baby.

The bodyweight exercises selected will develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously to improve your climbing and fitness.
