Take Some Time For You
It’s easy to put work, family, and other obligations before your own self-care, which can leave you feeling depleted. It’s important to take time for yourself each day to do things that keep you feeling healthy and vibrant. Below are some suggestions:
- Take some time for you by attending one of our fitness classes or enjoying a workout in the fitness center. Check out the NEW fitness schedule for November and December!
- Join Brook on Saturday mornings at 9am for our NEW Shape Shifter class. This 60-minute class uses free weights and strength equipment to build lean muscle and strengthen the body from head to toe. Some classes may also include High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Class will vary with participant’s needs. A general knowledge of weight lifting is a plus, but not required.
- Starting this week, we will post a unique “Wednesday Workout” on the chalkboard in the gym each Wednesday. Staff will be available during business hours if you have any questions or you can schedule 30-minute ($50) or 60-minute ($100) personal training sessions to take you through the workout.
- Ski season is almost here! Get ready for ski season with the Ski Conditioning Class offered Tuesdays evenings at 6:30pm. (Please note that Brook’s class is cancelled for tomorrrow, Tuesday October 31).
- Take some time for you or give the perfect gift of 5 massages or facials for the price of 4! They are nontransferable and must be used within two months of purchase. This offer is available now through December 31, 2017.
- Congratulations to Twing Pitman and Kim Maykranz, the winners of the September Wellness Challenge who both attended 12 or more fitness classes! Twing won a 60-minute massage and Kim won a new yoga mat!
- Enjoy a lunch with friends, family, or your co-workers when The Barn reopens on Tuesday, November 21st.
Yoga Pose of the Month: Child’s Pose
Stretch out your low back and hips each morning with this pose.
- Come to your hands and knees.
- Place the tops of your feet down.
- Take your knees wide and bring your big toes together.
- Move your hips back toward your heels.
- Stretch your arms forward and rest your head on the mat or floor. If your head doesn’t make it to the floor, stack your fists and place your head down on them.
- Hold for 3 – 5 long breaths. As your hips begin to release, walk your hands further out to get more of a stretch in your spine and back muscles.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
