Our trainers all teach from a holistic approach.We strive to create a true mind/body experience at Core. While the Group Reformer Classes work on the machines, all of our instructors have training in other movement modalities and we encourage them to use these in class. The result is classes where movement is influenced by dance, Gyrokenesis, TRX, yoga and meditation and more.
These classes are designed to be fun and at the same time challenge you to deepen your practice.
