Hatha Yoga

6-Weeks Tuesday and Thursday 7:00p

May 3rd to June 9th

Ha means Sun or masculine and tha means moon or feminine. Yoga comes from the root word Yuj, which means to unite. One translation of this can be, the uniting of yin and yang energies. Yoga is full of postures that help strengthen and stretch making it a very unique form of exercise that has been around since at least the 11th century.

Using slow focused movement and breathing not only allows for stretching and strengthening, but many other benefits. Balanced emotions, better sleep, and the ability to learn to breath and relax in new and uncomfortable positions. This skill can be an amazing gift when applied to life off the mat. Yoga is an amazing tool for learning, growing, and healing.  Adults and mature youth are welcome. Cost is $160 per person.   Contact us to help with any questions. 847-888-8866.

You will learn Martial Arts and Self-Defense techniques from the traditional martial arts such as Judo, Karate, Kung Fu, Hapkido, Wing Chun and Jui Jitsu along with acquiring skills from Boxing, Kick Boxing, Wrestling and more.

Bujutsu is a fun and exciting way to improve your core strength, increase endurance and stamina, and learn how to defend yourself better on your feet or on the ground. Students learn respect and responsibility as they learn and improve their skills and techniques.


Tai Chi

Tuesday and Thursday 6:00p

Sunday 9:00a

Tai Chi is an ordered series of simple full-body movements to increase strength, improve balance, reduce pain and decrease stress in an easy-to-follow class for all fitness levels.

Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness — muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and, to a lesser degree, aerobic conditioning. Highly recommended by many recognized medical authorities.  There’s plenty of space for newcomers to join us.  Outdoor training weather permitting.
