Manage/Reduce Stress with Fitness Classes
Moving your body is an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety, and it can boost your mood, loosen up muscles and joints, increase confidence, and make you feel great.
Try one of these classes to get you moving and maybe try something new!
Tuesdays, 10:30am (Gentle Yoga) | Wednesdays, 9:00am (Power Yoga) | Thursdays, 10:30am | Sundays, 10:30am
One reason yoga is so effective at combatting stress is that the combination of poses, breath work and meditation helps decrease sympathetic nervous system activity!
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:15am | Saturdays, 8:45am
Research found that a mixed martial arts class left participants feeling a decrease in tension/anxiety, depression/dejection, anger/hostility and confusion. The reason? The endorphin-producing, sweat-inducing workout is an ideal outlet for venting life’s little (and not-so-little) frustrations.
According to research, even one single upbeat dance session may help combat depression and anxiety more effectively than simply listening to music or even vigorously exercising!
Tuesdays, 10:15am | Wednesdays, 5:00pm
Pilates has been around for almost a century, but the health benefits are timeless. Combining breath work and core-strengthening exercises with motion and full-body strength-building moves, Pilates is a complete mind-body workout (think yoga meets aerobics).
Tai Chi Class
Tai Chi is a form of moving meditation, which helps decrease tension and promote serenity through a series of graceful, flowing movements and focused breath work. Tai chi has been linked to better sleep and improved pain management.
