Class Descriptions

BARRE (pronounced Bar)

Barre is done at the ballet barre and uses ballet positioning, alignment and movement to create the perfect low impact, but highly effective workout. But even though we will be at the barre- No dance or ballet experience is necessary. Each muscle group is worked to fatigue, focusing on your lower body (hamstrings, glutes, buns, obliques, lower back, hips) while working on core and upper body strength. Once you try a barre class, you will be hooked. Barre classes create and sculpt a long, lean and well conditioned body. If you want a private session to introduce you to the positions and alignment,  email tara@bodyofbloomington.com

YOGA

Yoga is am amazing physical and mental workout where you work not only your body- but your mind by continuously focusing on listening to your body and  your breath. If you have never tried yoga before- our classes are for all levels and are held in our studio where there is a non-intimidating atmosphere where everyone at every level is welcome.

We want you to enjoy and feel the benefits of yoga both on your mat during your practice and off your mat in your daily life. We sequences our classes to relieve tension, alleviate stress, restore the body, open the hips while working on flexibility, strength and balance. Watch your body, mind and perspective transform with your yoga practice at Body of Bloomington.

All of our yoga classes are accessible to all levels and if you are a beginner wanted to learn the poses and the meaning of yoga, we suggest you begin with slow flow yoga and if you are looking for more of a workout, we recommend a hot vinyasa flow class.

HOT VINYASA FLOW:

A little quicker paced class to accelerate your heart rate and practice but still accessible to all levels. We focus on a total body and mind workout while flowing through yoga asanas (poses) using our breath to guide us.

HOT YOGA

Sequences developed to relieve tension, alleviate stress, restore the body, open the hips while working on flexibility, strength and balance. This class, as well as all of our classes can be modified for all levels meeting the needs.

SLOW FLOW YOGA

This is our slower flow class where we will work on stretching every body party- from our head to our toes, but hold the poses longer in this class. Since the poses are held longer and it is a slower pace, it is excellent for anyone looking to relieve extra tension, runners, or beginners to yoga.

New to yoga?

We offer private sessions at $65 per hour or $40 per half an hour. To schedule a private session with any of our instructors, email tara@bodyofbloomington.com.

If you are looking for something beyond traditional Pilates, or are just looking for something different in your workout, this is for you!  This class is low impact and extremely efficient in targeting your hardest trouble zones.
