Gentle Strength Classes (60min)
A 60-minute class taken from the comfort of your own home. Simple equipment and supportive positions make this class
accessible for individuals of all fitness levels who wish to focus on quality movements and overall function.
Gentle, full body strengthening and balance classes
These classes are aimed at individuals who might have some limitations or difficulties with weight bearing, balance or mobility. These are perfect for those hoping to improve their mobility, strength, balance and core in a safe, supported way with progressive movements.
With a focus on functional movements and minimal stress on weight bearing joints, these Gentle Strength classes create a safe and supported environment to practice balance and full body strengthening accessible for all levels of function and fitness.
Smaller class sizes allow the Kinesiologist to direct any modifications to those attending live.
