Why fuse yoga and pilates in one class?

After over 10 years of practicing both yoga and pilates, Brinn felt a Hatha-Vinyasa Yoga and Pilates fusion classes a natural combination. The class is suitable for all levels, and instruction will include variations to challenge more intermediate students and to develop more beginner students.

Even if you have never practiced yoga, you can begin your journey here! Or if you have been practicing for years, continue your journey and to deepen your practice here.

Brinn has particular interest in back and knee health and her classes will always focus on alignment and safety. Classes will include breath integration, deep stretching, balance and core work, sun salutations, a variety of postures and relaxation.

This is an active class with the goal of improved strength, flexibility, focus and overall physical and mental health. (Note: This practice is not appropriate for women in their second or third trimester of pregnancy.)
