Experience the Fit & Free Lifestyle Program as you increase mobility, stability, strength and balance while relieving pain-related tension! Consistency, commitment and just 45 minutes a day, a few days a week can increase your range of motion, free up space in your body, build strength and stability and keep you feeling young longer. The Fit & Free Program combines Yamuna®, Yoga and Functional Fitness for an overall fitness program for total body sustainability. Yamuna® Bodywork is a self-massage modality that releases restrictions in your body allowing you to move freely. The use of Yamuna® therapy balls will create space in your joints allowing for greater range of motion and relief. Functional Fitness includes movements that increase longevity and lifespan! Body movements that simulate the ‘functions’ we use on a daily basis to increase mobility, strength and balance.

As we age, we feel more aches and pains that can slow us down. Once we slow down it’s difficult to keep doing the things we love. The purpose of this Fit & Free Lifestyle Program is to remove physical restrictions in your body and build strength so that your body functions optimally.

Keeping our bodies functioning at their highest capacity is vital for a quality of life that keeps us active and feeling young. This is an all levels class. Please bring a yoga mat and wear exercise clothing. All tools will be provided to you and available for purchase should you choose to join fun! Bonus: Our certified nutritionist will provide a done-for-you meal plan with recipes!

Women's Health & Fitness 101

$85

with Carole Freeman

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 17, 2023 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

A comprehensive course on how to regain lost energy and stamina

For women of ALL fitness levels and ages who want to regain their energy and stamina, be more active and enjoy life. Because women are different hormonally and anatomically, they benefit from different strategies and training. For example, women’s lungs and airways are smaller than men’s of the same size. Smaller airways create air turbulence which can make it harder to breathe during exercise. After the 4 Zoom classes, you’ll be invited to join a Facebook community if you wish for continued resources and group support. Carole will continue to be available to encourage, interact with and answer questions until the end of the year.
