Awareness Yoga


In this class, poses will be practiced with a focus on synchronizing physical and breath work, to achieve a meditative state. The emphasis will be on building a relationship between your body and mind in the present moment.

Restorative Movement at A Step To Health in Hillsbrough

You've started down the path to restored, but you're still not sure what a functional butt feels like. You're ready for more load and more strength, but aren’t into "Hard Core" classes. Core & More is your core restoring, pelvic-floor-supporting, butt-burning mindful movement class. All the corrective exercises that you love, and more.


Each class has a different emphasis, but every class is a whole-body experience that will leave you feeling more in touch with your body. We’ll play with resistance bands, use yoga blocks in creative (and evil!) ways, and use blankets for more than just bolstering ourselves. Of course, there will be time to rest and digest, time to check in and connect, and the usual joy and enthusiasm you can always expect in Larissa's classes. 

This class will help you improve your stability and physical resiliency so that you can complete everyday activities with mobility and ease. This 60-minute core and stretch combination class begins with warm-up stretching, leading into 25-minutes of core strengthening within the abdominals, obliques, and back muscles, finishing off with stretching focused on increasing flexibility and full-body recovery.

Yin and Restorative Yoga are both yoga practices that include releasing stored tension from the body while calming the busy mind. Both promote meditation and the relaxation response that allows the mind and body to fully relax and restore. Experience the decrease of muscle tension, breathing rate and busy thoughts. This is a place of stillness that offers the opportunity for letting go, being fully present, and connecting with inner bliss and happiness.

MELT Foam Rolling
*currently on hiatus*

The MELT Method® is a simple, self-care treatment technique that reduces chronic pain and helps you to stay healthy and active for a lifetime. MELT techniques reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living. MELT classes are fun, relaxing, and are appropriate for all ages and activity levels. Using specialized techniques, a soft body roller, and four different small balls, MELT rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints. For those experiencing stiffness, aches and pains, it is a way to restore balance and ease of movement. For active younger adults, it is a way to maintain a fit, healthy body and maintain optimal performance. Take a minute to learn how MELT works before your first class with MELT Frequently Asked Questions. You can also read some helpful tips from our MELT Foam Rolling instructor, Sandy Brady.
