- Pilates. Specially-designed program, safe and gentle to spine and joints. German-born Greek scientist J H Pilates initially designed this program as a rehabilitation complex for professional dancers. The methodology here incorporates unique yoga, stretching and strength exercises, helping you to get and strengthen a perfect body faster than any other fitness classes.
- Functional training. Variable-intensity dynamic training, improving your strength, balance, endurance, deep muscles, agility as well as cardiovascular system. These classes are also available as a circuit training where you have to spend certain amount of time on each exercises section. Throughout the training you will use both equipment and your own body weight.
- Martial arts aerobics. High-intensity training with the main purpose of improving and strengthening the functional condition of cardiovascular system as well as muscle strength. The first portion of the aerobics classes includes exercises with martial arts techniques (standing, without jumping). The second portion includes exercises laying on the floor or on all fours. The third portion includes stretching exercises and cooldown. All exercises are symmetrical in order to develop and strengthen good posture. Martial arts techniques during aerobics classes allow you to get rid of the stress accumulated throughout the day. Many exercises are aimed to improve your body’s active stability as well as strength in core muscles (increasingly popular nowadays).
- Strong Core. The classes focus on strengthening your torso by developing abdominal, back, lateral and deep muscles. During the classes clients are engaged in strength and endurance exercises by using their own body weight or equipment. It is crucial to do the exercises properly.
- Therapeutic exercises for pregnant women. Specific training classes for women during pregnancy (starting with 12th week of pregnancy). The clients are engaged in low-intensity relaxing classes preparing them for childbirth through working on strengthening muscles involved in labor (thus helping to reduce back pain, formation of varicose veins, unpleasant sensations in pelvis) as well as breathing exercises and relaxation techniques, childbirth positions and self-massage.

An osteopathic specialist not only gives consultations, diagnoses and treats various back and head pain-related disorders but also helps solving various disorders caused by allergies, urinary incontinence, infertility, as well as treats gastrointestinal and other disorders. The diseases are diagnosed in osteopathy based on patient examination via static and dynamic (movement) approaches, palpation (nuanced diagnostics of sensations caused by hand touches), determination of changes in body elasticity and biomechanical connections.
During the therapy vast range of manual (hand) techniques are used. The selection of techniques is based on individual factors, depending on the patient’s age, physical and psycho-emotional condition. An osteopathic specialist collaborates with specialists from other fields and, where necessary, refers the patient to see an appropriate specialist.
