Pilates

Wednesday and Fridays, 10 to 11 a.m. —
Rooms 106-107, Coach Howell Center

Pilates is a challenging, low-impact class designed to improve muscle strength and control as well as posture, balance, and flexibility.   Exercises are typically done upright or lying on a mat. The focus is on good posture and core stabilization. The “core” includes the muscles of the abdomen, pelvic floor, back, and hips. Good posture and core stabilization are the foundation for safe, effective everyday movements. Bodyweight and gravity resistance are used, as well as dumbbells and balls, to hit all major muscle groups.


Art 101 with Andy Bedsworth 

Friday 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. — LLO Room

Art 101 is a survey class of many techniques including some crafts. It is geared for students with no experience in art though people with some experience will probably still enjoy it. The emphasis is on the process and not the product. Students will be exposed to different media, techniques and styles throughout the weeks giving them a relaxed approach to learning art. One does not have to come in consecutive order though sometimes there will be projects that will take more than one class to finish but these will be minimal and we will always have things for newcomers to try regardless. Materials are provided.

 

Yoga with Stevi Self

Monday, Wednesday, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Coach Howell Center, Rooms 106-107

Gentle Yoga with Stevi involves slow-moving Yoga poses and guided breath work to increase strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, and mental calm and focus. You can add this if you want or leave it off if you think it’s irrelevant: Stevi is a certified Yoga therapist with over 20 years of experience teaching to all levels of ability. She adapts every class to the needs of the students who attend.
