ELDOA is a revolutionary stretching and strengthening technique for the spine and joints of the body. The ELDOAs, developed by French Osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer, target every level of your spine to decompress and normalize the tension around each vertebrae.
At Inhabit, we offer two classes: Spine Level 1 (new! Fridays at 10:45 a.m.) and Level […]

While foot exercise are embedded firmly in the Pilates curriculum, the underlying philosophy has taken a while to come to the public’s way of thinking about the body. We have always thought it made lots of sense to have strong, aligned feet, to better the […]
