 Yoga and Pilates


Yoga is a powerful, transformative practice that links the body and mind in a meditative awareness. Through synchronizing of breath, and the mindful application of a progressive series of postures, a process unfolds that produces intense internal heat followed by a purifying sweat. This natural outflow of the body detoxifies muscle tissue and body organs. The result is an improved circulation, a lighter and stronger body, and a calm mind able to focus more clearly. 

Pilates is a system designed to align and develop the core muscles of the torso. These muscles become the strength center of the body and enable further development of other physical disciplines, such as Yoga, dance and sport and endurance. This technique is used both for rehabilitation from injury and in maintaining a pro-active role in injury prevention.

Together Yoga and Pilates build strength without bulk, develop well-toned yet flexible muscle structure and improve everyday posture. Combined they can eliminate many conditions such as chronic back and neck pain by strengthening the core muscles of the body.

Thai Massage and Other Massage Treatments

Thai Massage is a powerful method of relaxing and aligning the body using two primary procedures, the application of gentle pressure with the hands and feet and the manipulation of the body through a wide variety of passive stretching movements. In a quiet meditative atmosphere, these procedures enable the body to open energy pathways and help regain flexibility and movement.
