Restorative Yoga is COMING BACK!

A relaxing way to de-stress, re-energize and find balance. The practice is beneficial because restorative yoga works in a passive, not active manner and it places your body in shapes that are effective on both a physical and emotional level, without strain.  It is a prop heavy practice, and you will be provided with the essentials to help you fully ease into the positions so you can truly ‘let go’. Each pose is held for approximately 5 minutes to allow time for the body to release.  Bolsters, blankets and blocks will be used to help you into a relaxing position. Most of the class will take place on the floor with the lights dim and soft instrumental music.

This special class 90-minute class will be offered once per month and will be taught by yoga teacher, Nancy Aufiero­­.  

DATE:   1st Sunday of each month beginning October 3rd

TIME:    3:00pm – 4:30pm

COST:   $30 members / $35 non-members

** This class will be limited at this time to 8 participants each week and requires prior sign up. Payment is required at time of sign up.

Top 5 Bang 4 Your Buck Exercises

By Mike Kubas

I’m going to try to make this one short and sweet in line with the topic at hand. I get asked a lot, “If I only have 15-20 minutes, I can’t really work out, so what should I do?” Well crazy thing is, you can work out in that short of a time period and some studies show more frequent, shorter, mod-high intensity workouts can be just as effective, sometimes more effective in the long run than your standard, long drawn out, “full” workout. In these situations, exercise selection is key. Not just to be sure there’s no wasted time transitioning to the next exercise, but also to be sure it’s a fresh muscle and that you’re hitting all the necessary movements.

Now these aren’t the exact 5 exercises I would use in a 15-20 min workout, but they are the exercises I feel are best suited for people who are crunched for time. Sometimes I even call these workouts the “Better than nothing” workout. Quite simply if you squeeze in 15-20 mins of exercise in spots where you would previously have foregone exercise completely, it really does add up, bring great benefit, and becomes a beneficial habit. Another way to look at this is if you could only perform 1 exercise for the rest of your life, which exercise would provide the most benefit?

1. The Deadlift – My personal favorite. This one hits large groups of muscles and allows you to move a lot of weight relative to your body weight. Both very important in building and maintaining a large amount of muscle mass. Glutes, hamstrings, low back, lats, traps all get crushed with this one making it an invaluable tool to learn and master. When used appropriately it’s great for back health and strength and it’s one of the best overall exercises you can do.
