The Benefits of Yoga & Pilates
At Franciscan Health Fitness Centers, Pilates is focused on relaxing and strengthening muscles for toning your body, while Yoga uses the mind-body connection for improving the flexibility of your body and joints. Both provide a unique and positive approach to health and wellness.

This class is a gentle form of yoga. You will practice yoga sitting in a chair or standing using the chair for support. Complicated maneuvers and complex movements are NOT present in this class. The chair is used due to the difficulty in getting up and down off the floor. You will learn many yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation and ways of relaxation with the aid of a chair. (55 minutes)
Flex & Foam
Chairs are available to all class participants in Gentle Yoga. Most everything we do in this class can be done from a chair, though we will use the floor for some simple stretching exercises. "Do what you can do, don't do what you can't do.”
Yoga Flow links multiple Hatha Yoga poses together to create an active, flowing movement. This class will help improve strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance. Modifications and principles of alignment are given to allow participants to stay safe, yet to feel challenged. All levels welcome.
Yoga for Every "BODY"
This introduction to Yoga class is designed to familiarize beginners with basic Yoga postures and breathing techniques. With an emphasis on personal instruction, this class gives you a solid foundation before moving into and on to other yoga classes.
