AQUAFIT – on during summer months
The magic of water!

Water is 800x denser than air and is therefore a gentle environment to exercise in.

  1. Cardiovascular – because of its low impact and buoyancy, water allows you to work harder for longer.
  2. Muscle strength – the resistance the water creates allows you to safely do muscle strength exercises.
  3. Flexibility – Ranges of movement in your joints are greater in water and therefore relieve muscle and joint stiffness. All other exercise benefits apply in water e.g lowers Blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety.

Most of all – it is a lot of fun!

MAT PILATES
“If at 30, your spine is stiff and immobile, you are old; if at 90 your spine is supple and strong, you are young.” – Joseph H. Pilates.
This class is a strengthening and lengthening form of exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. You will gain strength, stability, flexibility, balance, coordination, concentration, control and fluidity. Through breath we will move better. It can help stave off back niggles but if you are suffering any acute injuries or pain please ensure you have a movement assessment prior to beginning. The session will be a workout, not rehabilitation. The movements will be scaled to meet various levels of ability.

MINDFULNESS YOGA
Yoga to increase wellbeing in body and mind. To enhance flexibility and strength, and to support our immunity.

PUMP
A barbell workout that incorporates functional strength training. Every movement plane is attacked using weights and bodyweight. Featuring safe and motivating exercises, and great music to create a thrilling group fitness atmosphere.

SPIN
Our spinning classes are ideal for people of all levels of fitness and experience, whether you are new to exercise or a regular gym junkie! The joy of spinning is that you are in complete control at all times using a resistance dial on your individual spin bike. Throughout the class our instructors bring you through a series of hills, intervals and sprints encouraging you to push and challenging yourself every step of the way to achieve your individual goal.

STEP
STEP class is a 60-minute step program designed to push your cardio edge into high gear and attack the legs in every plane of motion, both on the step and on the floor. STEP class strengthens the heart, increases bone mineral density, improves coordination, and tones the lower body, with every step you take.

STRONGER FOR LONGER
A class to help you improve mobility, strength and balance. It’s a functional class, so we work on compound moves such as the squat while focusing on proper form and the muscle groups that will allow you to perform the basic movements of daily life for as long as possible. You will learn to connect with and isolate your upper and lower body muscles as you perform a series of exercises on different surfaces: floor, BOSU ball, stability cushions, sliders and/or using weights, body bars and bands to mimic daily activities and challenges. You will work up a sweat while reconnecting with your body and having fun! This class is tailored but not limited to seniors. Anyone can benefit from this workout. Exercises can be adjusted from very simple form to a challenging version. Come and try it. You get to laugh and socialise too.
The class is approved by ACC Strength and Balance program: Live Stronger for Longer www.livestronger.org.nz

TAHITIAN FITNESS DANCE
Fitness Tahitian dance is based on different movements that work the  important  parts of our body: back, neck, hips, knees, feet, arms, your posture … The results of this beautiful exercise are incredibly amazing. By connecting to music, your body and muscles It brings out positive energy to our mind. Class is led by Claudia Quiroga,  professional pacific island dancer, originally from Chile.
Please bring pareo/sarong and your own yoga mat

VINYASA FLOW YOGA
Vinyasa Yoga is a smooth transition of flowing asanas. You move with your breath from pose to pose and rarely hold postures for any length of time until the end of class.
This flow offers strength, flexibility, concentration and breath work.

YIN YOGA
Yin Yoga is known as a quiet practice. It is mostly floor based, where participants are in poses for a period of time – 3 to 5 minutes. By softening in a pose or shape, following the breath, and maintaining stillness, connective tissue (tendons and ligaments)is encouraged to release.
This gentle pulling action, at the joints, stimulates the flow of chi through meridian pathways,
nourishing our energetic system and vital organs.
Over time, poses or shapes may deepen, and the practice become more meditative.
Stillness, and turning one’s focus inwards requires practise but the benefits are numerous, and may include increased lubrication and mobility of the joints, a feeling of openness in the hips, a relaxed body, and a calm, centred mind.
Yin Yoga is an ideal complement for the more dynamic or Yang forms of exercise i.e.
stronger yoga styles, cardio and strengthening classes, even walking.

ZUMBA
Each Zumba class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. A mixture of low-intensity and high intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check. Perfect for everybody and everybody!
