The Davidson College Wildcat Wellness Program in conjunction with The Department of Physical Education is excited about offering a new round of classes for Staff and Faculty (As always, spouses and partners are welcome)! Classes for Spring 2012 will be posted shortly.
Belly dance is a style of dance that incorporates isolation of the hips, ribs, shoulders, head, and hands, as well as undulating movements of the torso. It is a great way to exercise the core, and helps to improve mental focus. This class is for people who have never danced before, as well as those with prior dance experience of any kind. We will learn the basic movements of belly dance, as well as learn a prepared choreography for a piece of music. Wear comfortable clothing to class; you will not need shoes, as you will dance barefoot or in socks.
Core and More
A strength and conditioning class that focuses on the core (abs and back) and the lower body using equipment (balls, bands, etc.) and one's own body weight.
An hour long class that focuses on core strength that helps to build strength and flexibility as well as creating long, lean muscles. A tried and true technique that has been used by professional dancers and athletes for years, Pilates is a great way to build strength without bulk, and is also extremely effective in preventing and recovering from injury.
Spinning (Indoor Cycling)
Spinning is an aerobic, anaerobic and interval workout on a specialized stationary bike, that is designed for all levels of fitness. This bike provides varying levels of resistance to simulate hill rides, jumps, and sprinting. Come along for the ride!!
Tai Chi is a method of meditation and self-integration through slow, relaxed, and conscious movement. All levels are most welcome!!
The course is designed to improve physical fitness and increase cardio-respiratory fitness. This ultimate cardiovascular challenge combines movement patterns, technique and agility training.
This style of Hatha yoga flows from one posture (asana) to the next, while the breath keeps the rhythm. It is physically a more strenuous form of yoga that focuses on the cardiovascular system, muscular flexibility, strength, and balance while achieving a mind-body connection.
