Core Fusion BarreOur signature class! A combined 50+ years of collective teaching experience were put against the development of this challenging barre-based workout, which combines core work with pilates, yoga, ballet and dance principles to stretch, tone, and lengthen muscles like never before. Classes are taught at one of three levels: core fusion barre is open level, along with core fusion barre basic and core fusion barre advanced. All are sure to provide a challenging workout, with the open and advanced classes building upon the fundamentals learned in the basic class. New guests are encouraged to start with basic classes, but open level is also fine for first time guests.
Core Fusion Boot CampLunges and planks and yoga, oh my! Our newest addition to the core fusion regime combines signature moves from all the core classes to present you with the ultimate strength and cardio challenge (which just happens to include a full 15 minutes of ab work)!
Core Fusion CardioGet ready to sweat. This barre-less class leverages moves from the original core fusion class, but combines them with sets of plank runs (like mountain climbers, but more challenging! ) To raise your heart rate and maximize calorie burn — all while sculpting and lengthening muscles. Core fusion cardio also incorporates yoga postures with light weights.
Core Fusion SportWe’ve taken the barre out of core fusion and added in the core ball to create a class perfect for your inner athlete! Work both laterally and side-to-side with the weighted ball as you jump, push up, and twist to hit every muscle in and around your core. Core fusion sport includes plyometrics.

Exhale YinExhale yin is appropriate for students of all ages, fitness, and flexibility levels. Absolute beginners to yoga are welcome!

A deep, passive practice settles you into these poses for extended timeframes. Flexibility is increased as joints and muscles rehabilitate and restore.
