Eccentric Lengthen and Strengthen Register View Cart


This class, accompanied by a diverse playlist, is a slow, enjoyable workout that gently conditions and balances every muscle group.  We use eccentric and concentric muscle contractions, pandiculation, and relaxation as well as techniques for conditioning connective tissue to create and maintain a strong, lean, flexible, and resilient body.  The movements are drawn from Tai chi, Yoga, Ballet, Pilates, and Physio-therapy.  This mindful workout especially focuses on strengthening abdominals, improving posture, alignment, and balance, while learning to relax as we move.
