PROGRESSING BALLET TECHNIQUE (PBT)
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best. One of the important elements used in the PBT method is muscle memory which helps to improve students’ understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment. Each exercise in the PBT program has been developed with care and guidance by Marie Walton-Mahon along with a team of physiotherapists. Amanda Watson is certified in PBT Junior, Senior & Advanced Programs. Student will need a yoga mat, exercise ball, and fusion ball/pilates soft ball in order to perform exercises (information on where to find these items can be found at pbt.dance/en/equipment). Class is appropriate for dancers, gymnasts, pilates enthusiasts or anyone looking to experience a “dancers workout.”

Build lean muscles and blast body fat in one workout! This class will include a choreographed warm-up (very easy to follow – no dance experience needed!) followed by circuit training where we will strengthen and tone the entire body. Because we will be utilizing many compound moves (working multiple muscle groups at once) you will also improve your cardiorespiratory health and endurance, blasting calories and body fat. We will end class with relaxing stretches to cool down and lengthen your muscles.
We recommend wearing comfortable, breathable fitness clothes and sneakers. Class is appropriate for all fitness levels, and modifications will be given. You will need a pair of dumbbells (2-10lbs) and a yoga mat.
This is not your typical pilates or yoga class! PiYo is Pilates + Yoga + Nonstop movement. You will sweat, stretch, and strengthen, all in one class. It combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates, with the strength and flexibility benefits of Yoga. Class is fast paced and includes a lot of up and down movements from standing to lunges to planks and downward facing dogs. Please wear comfortable, breathable/sweat wicking athletic clothing. You will need a Yoga mat or a grippy surface.
