In Pilates/Barre Blend, each class will work to balance, lengthen, strengthen, and stretch the entire body, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. Exercises draw from the Pilates Method and Barre Exercises and include props such as bands and balls.


KIDS: Creative Movement

For Creative Movement classes, please have kids wear comfortable clothing and kids will be barefoot.  The nearby church lounge is available for Parents/Caregivers to remain during class.  Classes take place in the Central Presbyterian Church Community Room on Tuesdays and in the Nursery on Fridays.


Creative Movement is a joyful way to explore movement, develop physical skills, explore elements of dance, channel energy, stimulate imagination, and promote creativity. Creative Movement uses body actions to communicate images, ideas, and feelings, all in a fun and encouraging class setting.
