Maximize your glutes! Many people, even athletes, have weak glutes. Part of the issue is the amount of time many of us spend sitting (driving, stationary at work, etc). Sitting for extended periods of time can result in tight, shortened hip flexors and hamstrings, and weak glutes that fail to fire properly.  This class will use a variety of exercises that help firm and tone the specific muscles of the Gluteus Maximus and Gluteus Medius.  Exercise examples include one-leg squat, one-leg deadlift, sideways, front, and transverse lunges, side-lying hip abduction, and lateral band walks.

Classes are non-competitive and students move according to their own comfort level and progress at their own rate. The emphasis is on sensory learning. The lessons are of benefit to everyone wishing to move with greater comfort and ease.
