Essentrics Full Body Fitness - Monthly Series

ESSENTRICS® is a full body fitness program designed to re-balance the entire body through simultaneously stretching and strengthening. Lifting and lengthening different parts of the body helps to unlock the joints, improve mobility, increase energy, and reverse the signs of aging. It is perfect for any age, whether you want to start a new routine or want to enhance your present fitness program.

Nancy started practicing Essentrics in 2016 after watching a special on PBS. She immediately felt the positive impact upon her body, increasing her strength and mobility and relieving stress. The choreographed music helped her experience the expansiveness of the movements. She has been teaching since May of 2020 and continues to increase her flexibility and strength through her practice and teaching.

Questions about Essentrics, please contact instructor, Nancy Salminen, at 602-332-3367 or n_salminen@yahoo.com.  Bring a yoga mat and an elastic workout band or strap if you have one.

Gentle Chair Yoga

Yoga for Every Body!  If you are new to yoga -- chair yoga is a great way to start!  It is safe, fun, and there’s no downside to using chairs for fitness.

Non-fit people or folks a little disconnected from their bodies can give themselves permission to try something as non-threatening as moving while sitting in a chair.

Fit people can still ‘feel good’ from discovering the deeper breathing connected to the slower movement.  

You are only one yoga class away from a good mood!  

Marina started practicing yoga in 1995, and for the past seven years has taught locally.  Marina also offers Gentle Yoga every Wednesday at 11:00 am.  Chairs are provided.

Questions about Gentle Chair Yoga please contact instructor, Marina Kachur, at 480-510-6572 or yokama14@gmail.com.

Cost: $10 cash, paid to instructor at each class
