New Classes *Drop in*

"Pelacore"  with Holly Dixon!

Wednesday's  5:30-6:15 pm

Join Holly for "Pelacore" a powerful & effective way to strengthen your core & the muscles of the pelvic floor!

Strengthening your core is a huge enhancement to your yoga practice or fitness program!  There is a reason its called the CORE, as it is the center of your overall movement & strength, so if it is weak your overall workout suffers.

Pelcore also helps to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, as sometimes due to surgery, injury, aging or postpartum, our pelvic floor muscles weaken significantly, causing a myriad of challenging issues, including feeling a loss of independence or embarrassment.  

Regain your strength, confidence & independence by joining Holly every Wednesday for a 45 minute Pelvic Floor and core strengthening session!  45 minutes a week is plenty of time to get you on track to a stronger healthier Core and Pelvic floor!
