Gait-Pro Is Here!
Energia Gait-Pro is our amazing new video gait analysis tool that we use to make sure you are buying the right shoes for your foot type and running style.
Usually gait analysis is done by eye and relies on the experience and awareness of the shoe fitter. In addition, you as the consumer don't have the opportunity to see what the fitter is seeing, so you have to trust their ability to get it right.
Energia Gait-Pro is a combination of treadmill, high speed HD video and specialized software that allows us to record you running with bare feet and different shoe models, then play back and freeze the images frame by frame to properly analyze and recommend the best pair of shoes for you. You also get to see for yourself first-hand during playback how different shoes affect your gait.
Come in soon and see our amazing system in action! We charge $25 for a Gait-Pro analysis but this service is free with a shoe purchase!

NEW - Rope Wall Yoga Class
If you've been in our yoga studio recently you've probably noticed the ropes hanging along one wall. This is our Yoga Rope Wall and although this prop may be used sporadically in other yoga classes, Lea will be teaching a "Rope Wall Yoga Class" on Tuesdays at 6 pm starting May 17th.
This 50 minute class will utilize the rope wall to assist participants in achieving traction in the spine while enhancing support and stability in all poses. This is an excellent class for rehabilitating back and joint injuries while allowing all participants to achieve further depth in each pose.
Coming soon: our yoga wall will feature padded hip slings and a second higher tier of ropes for even more comfort and assistance.
We hope you will come and try out this really cool enhancement to our studio!
