Yes. H2shO™️ CLASSICAL
H2shO™️ CLASSICAL uses the multi-directional movement possibilities provided by water and the musical textures of symphonic music creates the ultimate mind/body wellness combo. It is a great ACTIVE RECOVERY workout for athletes, perfect for rehabilitation or weekly mind/body relief.
Performing active recovery in a pool helps to reduce soreness, flushes out lactic acid and prevents a drop-off in performance. Your core will receive a deeper workout than you can get on land, improving both posture and balance.
Classical music has several brain benefits.
As a carefully curated classical music playlist stimulates specific cerebral circuits. Erwin González has created a new aquatic movement form.
Slow, deliberate and focused movements are performed at roughly 65- to 80-percent intensity. Moving your body through a controlled range of motion without any of the impact inherent in dry land training.
As the original H2shO™️ is centered in the traditions of musical theater, its CLASSICAL companion is an inspired dive into a wide spectrum of music; matching contemporary pieces with classical standbys. A playlist that reflects our current culture and feelings. Think not exclusively of dead composers.
Past classical music playlists have been curated by influential artists and musicians such as BBC Presenter/Author/Violinist Clemency Burton-Hill, OBE, twice GRAMMY® mininated Musician/Composer Theo Bleckmann & Jazz Musician/Composer/Educator David Hazeltine.
H2shO™️ CLASSICAL delivers the physiological benefits of vertical aquatic fitness and the cognitive rewards of music on brain neuroplasticity.
Make classical music part of your every day.
Beyond a workout H2shO™️is about connection. The emphasis on "enter-train-ment" allows us to take out the mental and emotional experience of failing. Now you are free to explore your potential.
Unlock your inner shO-girl, shO-man, shO-person.
The name H2shO™️ is a portmanteau of the chemical formula of water H2O💦+Broadway show 🎭. It all began as a shallow water, vertical fitness exercise class intended to be "less bootcamp" and more "CAMP".
As the popularity of this unconventional water aerobics program grew, it soon became a consistently waitlisted program offering at New York City's finest health clubs. Now the one-of-a-kind fitness events are hosted at NYC luxury coops, condos & rental properties. We also present private aquatic events and have a pool class available to all at St Bart's Church.
From humble beginnings, the science-based, soul-nourishing, performance-enhancing musical workout has evolved. We offer more varieties of enter-train-ment experiences, both in-and-out of the water, connecting with athletes of all ages.
There are two aquatic classes:
There are two on-land iterations:
