We cultivate body intelligence, discipline, and creativity through mindful and technically sound movement.
Specializing in technical ballet training for children, we believe ballet provides a solid foundation for all forms of dance.
From yoga and Pilates to ballet and ballroom, we offer a variety of classes for adults of all ages and abilities.
A Core Stability Class in 3 Parts
for the post-natal body (and anyone experiencing issues with core and pelvic floor weakness and immobility)
Research shows that up to 60% of women may experience post-natal–related abdominal weakness and instability––in some cases years after delivery. In this special series of sessions led by Dr. Amit Abraham, a musculoskeletal physical therapist, and Cundy Bryson, a birth doula and post-natal yoga instructor, participants will learn specific methods to protect the core muscles in daily life. Instructors will address such specific conditions as Diastasis Recti, low back pain, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence and will teach a series of core-stability exercises that can be practiced at home. Sundays, October 15, 22, and 29, 1pm to 3pm. $150.
