What classes are available at Ekinox?

  1. Pilates

    Pilates is a form of mind-body exercise created by Joseph Pilates in the early 1920s that is practiced by men and women around the world!

    Focusing on deep strengthening of the stabilizing muscles of your spine, Pilates helps you keep your back strong and relieve chronic tension and pain. Through fairly physical, but gentle, non-impact exercises, Pilates work especially the lower body muscles (abs, back and glutes), but also the arms, shoulders and hips.

    Posture is a focus throughout the class.  Learn exercises to help improve and correct your posture from head to toe. Regain greater mobility by gaining control of your muscle function and improving your strength, power, balance and flexibility so you can do whatever you are passionate about!

    Expect to stand, sit, lie down on your back, your front, your side, rock, glide and rotate your body. No shoes are required. Although this is not a cardio class, it is possible that some of the exercises will increase your heart rate.

  2. Ekinox Fitness Mom-Baby

    Optimize your postpartum fitness by slowly integrating physical activity into your family routine with your baby. This class is for new moms and is the perfect opportunity to get active and take care of yourself after giving birth.

    This class combines various exercises using your body weight, free weights and elastics to challenge the major muscle groups. You will move with your baby in order to strengthen and improve your cardiovascular and muscular capacities. Amélie, our specialized kinesiologist, is happy to adjust the exercises to your needs and motivate you to progress towards your goals in a dynamic and safe class. You will quickly see the benefits of physical activity in your daily life and enjoy a wonderful moment with your child.
