Course Overview

Join Brooke Tyler for an enriching Pilates program that's inspired by the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal.

In this program, you'll gain a nuanced understanding of each element and get five quick and challenging element-themed classes. Along the way, Brooke will shed light on how working with the five elements in practice can enhance your relationship to movement and positively influence your life off the mat.

This is for anyone who wants to broaden their horizons. And you don't have to be an advanced yoga practitioner or experienced in Pilates to take part!
