"I LOVE THE AI CHI CLASS!  I want you to keep teaching this class as long as I live. Sometimes people come into our lives and make our lives better.  You are one of them."  J Graybill, Shiremanstown

Students watch their overall fitness level soar and hate to miss class because it makes them feel so much better.

The water takes the weight off your feet and lets you move more easily.  Energy and stamina increase as you get healthier and stronger.  Yoga, pilates, strength training, balance training, and fun cardiovascular fitness routines are incorporated into class.  Posture and proper breathing are strongly emphasized.  Exertion level is based on the ability of the participant. 

Having fun is very important too!  We use balls, noodles, stretch bands, foam dumbbells, ankle cuffs, water steps, and more to make classes interested and varied.  The results are phenomenal!

People with joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or orthopedic condition feel better.  People with MS, diabetes, cardiovascular conditions and recovering cancer patients all see improvement.
