CoreZEN is a dynamic, flowing one-hour practice fusing elements from Tai-Chi, Yoga, Pilates and Qi-Gong.
Carefully choreographing no impact techniques cultivates strength, flexibility, balance, focus, muscular and
cardiovascular endurance, resulting in a fun class that effectively lowers your BMI over time.

This class might be using old teachings, yet by bringing all its elements together, this class offers a new step
above your regular Yoga or Pilates practice. The techniques in this class activate your core first, making your
center stronger; then wake up your entire body and create new neuro-muscular connections, shaping your body
by using your mind.
