Featuring a blend of corporeal disciplines, one-hour barre3 classes innovate on the traditional ballet barre to tone bodies, improve balance, and instill calm. Try a traditional or foundations class to shape your body and cultivate your cores at your own pace. Experienced instructors guide pupils in lean muscle-making contortions that merge the graceful flows of yoga with the rigorous sequences of Pilates, leading to timely results and postural peace treaties with spiteful spinal columns.
Inside Imagine Yoga Studio, a picturesque scene unfolds. Sunlight streams through large windows to reflect off dark-wood floors and illuminates the gathering of yogis who stretch between the studio's forest-green walls. An expert instructor leads the room by demonstrating postures during a range of classes. Groups move slowly through foundational postures during Form classes, which encourage proper alignment. Younger yogis can also take advantage of the serene studio with kids' classes, which introduce students aged 2–12 to more than 40 postures, body awareness, and the ability to levitate cookies off the counter.
IM=X (Integrated Movement Xercize) fuses the muscle-toning techniques of Pilates with resistance and plyometric jumps for a more athletically geared workout. Limbs will be lengthened during two private reformer sessions, in which a certified instructor familiarizes clients with the reformer equipment, bending physiques to reach their individual fitness goals with ample personal attention.
Though they didn't always know it, Katie Maclaskey and Noelle Bertram have been complementing each other's fitness interests for much of their lives. As children, they sharpened their motor skills on the slopes and by the surf, respectively: Katie tackled snow sports while Noelle jogged, rollerbladed, and steered soccerballs across California's beaches. Their families owned neighboring restaurants, yet the girls didn't personally connect until they met on a run and realized their shared enthusiasm for exercise. When they both moved to Portland years later, they decided to combine their knowledge and drive to lead other women toward better physical health.
As certified personal trainers and owners of Adventure Boot Camp, Katie and Noelle invent their own workouts within the renowned franchise. They might craft outdoor obstacle courses, cardio circuits, or core-tightening drills for their students, but the encouraging spirit of their lessons never varies—the Lake Oswego Review lauds the "atmosphere of enjoyment and achievement" that pervades every camp session. In their leadership roles, the girls also continue to play off of each other's strengths for their clients' benefit. Katie has earned her ISSA certification as a nutritional consultant, and Noelle is a Sivananda-certified yoga instructor, which means they can show students how to simultaneously cook and balance atop a head of cabbage.
