About this class

Smart. Balanced. Functional. Is one of your shoulders slightly higher than the other? Do you always carry a child or heavy bag on the same side of your body? Foundations+Plus will re-educate muscles to move your bones symmetrically, reducing pain and increasing movement efficiency. Through mindful repetition of movements using your body weight, a PVC pipe (yep!), and optional weights, this class teaches and helps you perfect functional movements such as planks, lunges and overhead presses--used in real life and in advanced athletic exercise. Work your body as an integrative unit from your feet up. Designed for all fitness levels and recommended for all who are new to Balanced Athlete®. Done in Pilates/Yoga socks or bare feet.

This was a good low impact class. Not too challenging but I still broke a sweat. And it was a good way to get back into working out after an injury

Excellent class for strength. Good for those recovering from injury
Foundations+Plus with Gorica
Maybe I'm getting fitter, but this wasn't as hard as it normally is. The class was pretty crowded so we had to share weights
Foundations+Plus with Angela
She's my favorite coach there. Excellent class
Foundations+Plus with Angela
The workout was great. I worked up a good sweat and appreciated the attention to having and maintaining the appropriate form. And Angela is a wonderful instructor; I shall return.
