Antigravity FUN1!


This class is taught by:

Mary Pogge

Mary Pogge began her lifetime interest in fitness and health early, getting hooked on yoga through Lilias on PBS when only 10 years old. She has practiced yoga both with instructors and on her own ever since childhood. When living in Iowa City in the 80s and 90s, she became involved in martial arts, earning a black belt in Tae Kwon Do through Jung's Tae Kwon Do of Cedar Rapids. In 1993, her family moved to the Ann Arbor area of Michigan and her years as a stay-home mom, caring for her special needs daughter, brought Pilates into her life. She began teaching at a private studio eight years ago, earning a certification in Stott Pilates through Equilibrium Studios in West Bloomington, Michigan. After moving from the private studio to the Ann Arbor YMCA, she and her daughter made the circle complete, returning to Iowa City. Mary has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Nebraska Wesleyan University and is also a published writer. Good health, good friends, and a commitment to lifelong learning are her ingredients to a good life!
This class uses the Harrison Antigravity Yoga Hammock as an interesting and exciting way to improve stretch quality, providing a safe way to practice inversions. The Antigravity hammock is perfect for placing the spine and pelvis in traction, thereby reversing the effects of gravity on the spine. It also provides deep tissue massage, and great proprioceptive challenge!
