Descriptions

COMBATIVE ARTS
  • Our Coaches have studied a wide gamut of fighting arts throughout their lives. We honor these arts by instilling the work ethic that is required to hone and sharpen one’s technical skills. Passing these guiding principles to our students and clients ensures their success in their lives.“Rather than being confined to a separate dimension, martial arts should be an extension of our way of living, of our philosophies, of the way we educate our children, of the job we devote so much of our time to, of the relationships we cultivate, and of the choices we make every day.” – Daniele Bolelli, On the Warrior’s Path
  • Disciplines:
    • Boxing (aka Pugilism): While people have fought in hand-to-hand combat since before the dawn of history, the origin of boxing as an organized sport may be its acceptance by the ancient Greeks as an Olympic game in 688BC. Boxing is the rudimentary foundation of throwing a punch. Learn the basics or put it all together for some fierce combinations.
    • Wrestling: a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds. Learn to manipulate and utilize leveraging and body positioning to gain a dominant position.
    • Muay Thai: This discipline which includes combat on shins is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins.
    • Tae Kwon Do: Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. To facilitate fast, turning kicks, taekwondo generally adopts stances that are narrower and hence less-stable than the broader, wide stances used by martial arts such as karate.
    • Shaolin Chin Na: the set of joint lock techniques used in the Chinese martial arts to control or lock an opponent's joints or muscles/tendons so he cannot move, thus neutralizing the opponent's fighting ability.
    • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: born from the Japanese Judo system, BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.
    • Shaolin Wing Chun: a Chinese martial art form with origins from Shaolin Kung Fu. Wing Chun utilizes simultaneous striking and trapping (pinning of opponent’s limb) while specializing in close range combat. The focus of Wing Chun is efficiency of motion along with speed and sharpened contact reflexes.
FLEXIBILITY TRAINING
  • Flexibility is needed to perform everyday activities with relative ease. To get out of bed, lift children, or sweep the floor, we need flexibility. Flexibility tends to deteriorate with age, often due to a sedentary lifestyle. Without adequate flexibility, daily activities become more difficult to perform. Over time, we create body movements and posture habits that can lead to reduced mobility of joints and compromised body positions. Staying active and stretching regularly help prevent this loss of mobility, which ensures independence as we age
  • Improved flexibility may enhance performance in aerobic training and muscular conditioning as well as in sport. There is scientific evidence that the incidence of injury decreases when people include flexibility training in their routines due to the enhanced ability to move unimpeded through a wider ROM. The only exception to this would be when there is an excessive or unstable ROM, which may increase the likelihood of injury. When used appropriately, flexibility training allows clients to become more in tune with their body. It is a form of active relaxation that can improve both mental and physical recovery.
  • Assisted Stretching : PNF stretching, or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching, is a set of stretching techniques commonly used to enhance flexibility and increase range of motion in order to improve motor performance and aid rehabilitation.
  • Customized Stretch Routine : This is a great session for those that know they need to work on their flexibility but are unsure of what stretches to do. We combine a postural and flexibility assessment in combination with your goals and the amount of time you want to spend stretching on your own to create a customized routine you can do on your own.
  • Myofascial Release : Learn to use the foam roller and a variety of other tools to facilitate your own self care. This is helpful to learn techniques that you can incorporate in your routine to get the most out of your workouts, decrease risk of injury, improve chronic conditions and reduce muscle soreness after intense workouts.
  • Thai Yoga Bodywork : This form of bodywork uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during the treatment (make sure to wear loose and comfortable clothing). The treatment is received on a padded mat on the floor. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. This ancient massage style is a wonderful tool to improve flexibility and get into positions that normally would be difficult. Achieve deep release with a deep sense of relaxation.
RACE TRAINING
  • Looking to prepare for your first, last or next road race? Work with our expert race coach to develop a safe and effective plan. Components of running which can greatly affect your performance are: Stride, Speed, Tempo Run, Hill Training, Running Economy, VO2 Max, Aerobic Intervals, Progression Run, Fartlek, Race Pace Run, Long Runs and Recovery Runs.
  • 5K: The beauty of the 5K run is that it takes all comers. It's the perfect introductory distance for novice racers, as well as a challenging test of strength and speed for the most competitive runners. The 5K race can also be a useful part of a larger training program, building speed for runners who primarily run longer distances. No matter what your ability, a hard 5K run tests your capacity to maintain a fast pace over distance.
  • 10K: The 10K is the single event where any runner can enjoy the full range of everything road racing has to offer. As a test of both speed and endurance, this distance combines the best aspects of the 5K and marathon. That means that improving your 10K performance can put you in striking distance of improvements at those other distances as well. In fact, much of the appeal of the 10K is not only that it demands versatility of runners, but also that it helps to develop it within them. Running the 10K often means running better.
  • Half Marathon: The half marathon distance provides a challenge beyond the popular 10K while allowing for more flexibility than marathon preparation. The training period for the half marathon is three months (versus five for the marathon), and recovery is substantially faster than for the marathon. This happy news means that you can run several half marathons during a single race season.
  • Marathon: Preparing for a marathon, after all, is no easy thing. It is a big, big time commitment, and for most it demands vast amounts of energy -- physical, mental and emotional. The pay-off, of course, is equally enormous. Enhanced strength, confidence and stoicism are the treasures reaped by all marathon athletes, whatever their ability.  It is true that crossing the finish line after 26.2 miles delivers a feeling of gratification and accomplishment like no other, but a similar sense accompanies the finish of a well run 10K, or a fast mile.
  • Obstacle Course: These races are unique in that you won’t know quite what lies ahead of you until you’re at the starting line. Most race directors pride themselves on surprising participants with challenges that will push competitors in both body and spirit, from barbed-wire crawls to icy cold water crossings. But there are usually a few commonalities: Most contain a combination of running over rugged terrain plus obstacles that rely heavily on functional fitness, from wall and rope climbs to heavy carries and monkey bars.

THAI REFLEXOLOGY
  • Commonly referred to as Thai Foot massage, this treatment is both relaxing and energizing for the client. Using the hands and other tools, this light acupressure will help to stimulate organ reflex points on the soles of the feet while leaving you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed all over your body. Techniques can also be used to help with insomnia.
THAI STYLE HEAD MASSAGE
  • Thai style head massage is luxurious technique that can be received sitting on a chair, or reclined on a table. This holistic method evokes a sensation of appeasement and lightness. It is a focused massage that has a resonating effect on different regions in the body, including the stimulation of the nervous system, relief of muscular tension and can even be beneficial for depression and migraines. This is also a wonderful technique for children.
AYURVEDIC THAI
  • This massage is customized to your dosha body (physical, mental and emotional) by determining your Ayurvedic constitution. Before the massage, your therapist will determine your dosha with you. Following the massage, your therapist will give you recommendations on lifestyle, yoga and nutrition that will help to restore your body's balance.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
  • Our specialized Thai Yoga massages are performed on a mat on the floor. The practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures and gentle stretching while palming and thumbing along the body's "sen" (energy lines) and pressure points. This relieves muscular tension, improves flexibility, increases circulation and balances the body by unblocking and dispersing energy.
THAI AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE (IN-HOUSE ONLY)
  • Thai aromatherapy hot oil massage is a rhythmic transitional flow of movements working sen lines (energy lines), marma points (acupressure points), and various Swedish and Thai techniques to balance the body. This 90 minute Thai oil session will leave you feeling blissfully relaxed!
