Our bodies weren’t designed to sit at a desk and work on the computer all day…
In this workshop you will learn self care techniques such as stretching, strengthening and self massage to counter balance the physical stress and repetitive injury caused by the poor ergonomics of computer work stations.

The Franklin Method is a system of body education using imagery, exercise, myofascial rollers, and therabands to achieve efficient movement and effortless posture. Join Jonathan Janis as he takes us on an introductory look at the method which has been described as deceptively simple, and can take us far into understanding the deeper aspects of the body that many modalities haven’t taught us.
Jonathan will also be teaching a 2 day workshop at the end of the month, find our more information here.

Designed to slow you down and restore your energy, this workshop is all about FEELING your body, breath and strength with ease. We will practice diaphragmatic (lateral) breathing to relax your nervous system, we’ll do a long, stretchy warm-up to mobilize your joints and loosen your muscles (resistive/restorative stretches) and then, we’ll do core conditioning and standing yoga poses from a place of easiness so that you build strength in a sustainable way.
For lasting results, on both your mind and body, doing your movement practice in this sequence is potent! You will find relief and space, and come away both relaxed and energized.
Give you and your Valentine a special gift this year — a 90-minute workshop that will reconnect you and your partner, while stretching out and elongating those tight muscles through gentle, resistive stretching exercises.
You will use each others body weight to slowly unwind and lengthen while building core integration. This workshop will include breath work to release muscle tension, qigong foot releases, yoga poses focusing on releasing the hips and hamstrings, lots of great partner stretching and much more. Keph will lead you through a flowing series designed to leave you feeling taller, renewed and relaxed.
Experience the power of breath while opening the body through passive and resistive stretching. You will find your body slowly unwinding and lengthening while building core integration.
You will both feel relaxed and absolutely revitalized by the end of class and enjoy a glass of champagne after class!
The classes will be taught as a Pilates Sculpt for all levels and will feature boot camp style workouts similar to what you may have experienced in past workshops.
Here is a brief description:
In this boot camp styled class we will combine free weights, personal training and traditional Pilates body-sculpting exercises in a fast-paced class. This class will work those key muscle groups to the point of fatigue and then lengthen and stretch those muscle groups to give you the kind of body that is strong and contoured, yet long and lean. Your instructor will offer modifications for each fitness level in this class however this class is NOT open to clients who have any injuries or pain that might be exacerbated by a vigorous full body workout.
These classes will be included in our mat packages. Monthly memberships and session packages both apply, as well as drop ins at the rate of $17
