Get in good condition with our new addition!

Join us every Monday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm for some lunch-time fitness in Body Conditioning with Brian Carbee.

Body Conditioning combines yoga practice with Pilates, and incorporates stretch and conditioning techniques borrowed from ballet and contemporary dance. Working on the mat as well as at the barre, Body Conditioningemphasises integration of breath and movement, core strength, alignment, and unlocking the deep muscles around the pelvis with the aim of developing strong, supple, articulate bodies.

The class is suitable for students of all ages and abilities and would be ideal for students wishing to condition their bodies in preparation for starting (or resuming) dance training, also for experienced dancers, who wish to improve their conditioning, and for non-dancers who would like to get into shape. Body Conditioning is challenging, invigorating, informative and fun.
