Core Work & Flexibility

The lower abdominals and spinal para-spinals are the powerhouse of the trunk, so naturally these are the CORE focus of this class! We will work on deep pelvic and low back stabilizing muscles while extending through the trunk and extremities. Flexibility will be a main focus but there is nothing passive about this class, and the participant should expect to strength and lengthen. This class is great for dancers or anyone who wants to improve their core strength, posture and flexibility.
