Renee´ Ricca is renowned for teaching classical methods of Pilates and Gyrotonics – and now, her Aventura-based studio is introducing a newly- expanded schedule of classes for adults and children offering “fitness and fun for everyone.”
Beyond classical Pilates (mat and reformer), Gyrotonic and Gyrokenisis classes focusing on core strength, flexibility, range of motion and balance, the diverse schedule of classes taught by professional instructors includes everything from relaxing Gentle Therapeutic Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Prenatal Yoga – to exhilarating Max Power Training, BeMoved Dance Fitness and Zumba – the Latin dance fitness craze.
Parents are now enrolling their children, ages 3 to 12, in the new “Kids on the Go” program encompassing Pilates, yoga, jazz, theatre, pre-ballet and ballet. “I find it extremely rewarding to help children improve skills for a wide range of athletic activities, learn how to move efficiently and prevent painful injuries – all while having a lot of fun!” Ricca says.
Ricca, a former ballet and Broadway dancer who trained with Carola Trier, a disciple of Joseph Pilates, has been choreographing classes ideal for all ages and skill levels since she opened a studio in the Aventura area over a decade ago. “Our exercise modalities provide a platform upon which to enhance physical performance through neuromuscular rejuvenation and cardiovascular stimulation – building the foundation for an active, healthful life for years to come,” she explains.
Ricca’s talent for melding serious fitness with energizing fun is especially exemplified by the new wild, cool and swingin’ “BeMoved Dance Fitness” classes featuring different genres every week like Bollywood and Jersey Boys “Make it a fun girl’s night out,” she suggests. “From Sinatra – to Michael Buble, you’ll learn easy to follow moves set to great music of favorite eras.” Renee´ Ricca Pilates & Gyrotonic Center is located at 18131 Biscayne Boulevard in the newly renovated Aventura Town Plaza II south of The Fresh Market.
