The City of Bartlett's Parks and Recreation Department beckons body benders and deep breathers for one-hour fitness classes at the Singleton Community Center, a former school with a spacious gymnasium for expanding consciousness. Students can spend Monday and Wednesday evenings stretching systematically toward physical flexibility—while centering their breath and discarding stress and calories—with the mind-and-body-melding Pilates fitness program. Instructor Annamarie Boner leads limb-liberating students through stretches to reach countertops and toes. She will also help students improve their alignment for balance and posture while focusing on breathing to clear one's thoughts of stress, worry, and commercial jingles.
Harmony seekers opting for a slower, more contemplative experience assume animal poses such as the downward dog and the guilty goldfish in yoga classes. Students can spend Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings learning the tension-taming techniques employed by ancient yogis and mystics when they encountered spiritual challenges or were put on hold for too long. Check the class schedule for more information.
