Join us in the wonderful world of aquatic fitness!
Known as the Zumba "pool party", Aqua Zumba® gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba® blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that's cardio-conditioning, body-toning and, most of all, exhilarating beyond belief!
Monday and Wednesday @ 10am

Ai Chi is a water-based total body
strengthening and relaxation progression that bridges East and West
philosophies, and integrates mental, physical, and spiritual energy.
It combines Tai-Chi concepts with Shiatsu and Watsu techniques, and
is performed standing in shoulder-depth water using a combination of
deep breathing and slow, broad movements of the arms, legs, and
torso. The Ai Chi progression moves from simple breathing, to the
incorporation of upper-extremity, trunk, lower-extremity, and
finally total body involvement.
Ai Chi was created to help aquatic practitioners (including aquatic exercise instructors, personal trainers, and aquatic therapy and rehabilitation practitioners) and students enjoy the water in a flowing yet powerful progression. It is an efficient exercise program that increases oxygen and caloric consumption through correct form and positioning in the water, a perfect relaxation technique for highly stressed, over-challenged clients, and is ideal for creating improved range of motion
Potential Benefits of Ai Chi
1. Improved flexibility, range of motion, and general mobility
2. Improved metabolism and caloric consumption
3. Better blood circulation
4. Re-vitalized energy circulation along important accupoint meridians
5. Renewal of vital organs
6. Improved liver efficiency
7. Decreased stress, insomnia, depression, anger, fatigue, anxiety, and confusion: the water and music can help to free the body of stress and to encourage a state of relaxed awareness
8. Increased mental alertness
9. Creates "design sense" (a feeling that you’re doing what the body was designed to do) and therefore, improves kinesthetic sense (our perception of how we move)
perfect combination of gentle, yet effective aerobic exercises,
muscle toning, strengthening, stretching, and posture improving
exercises make this the perfect workout for persons over 50. Also a
great choice for persons with Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, recovering
from an injury, or pregnant. Since water supports your joints, it
makes it easier to move freely, improving your range of motion. At
the same time, water offers at least 12 times more resistance than
air, strengthening your muscles. The pressure water exerts on your
legs also can aid circulation, something like wearing support hose.
In addition, the soothing sensation of warm water is a great stress
reliever. You may be able to do things in the water you can't on
