Harmonic classes

These are body maintenance classes with a focus on listening to your body, stretching and relaxation. They work well both as stand-alone classes and in combination with other classes.

Asahi health exercise

Asahi is a gentle and simple form of health exercise where most movements are performed while standing. The Asahi movement series are divided into five categories: relaxation, neck–shoulder exercises, back exercises, leg and balance exercises, and exercises that aim to balance breathing and calm the mind. Because the movements are simple, it is typically possible to reach a smooth flow of movements and smooth transitions between the movements quite quickly in these classes.


Fascial consists of dynamic movement exercises based on the concept of myofascial chains. The goal is to improve strength, balance, coordination and mobility. This active and functional mobility training is aimed at improving the overall well-being of the body, without forgetting calmness and relaxation.


These classes offer a flowy and dynamic yoga experience. Mobility, strength and relaxation in one package! You do not need to have previous yoga experience.

Hatha yoga

This form of exercise is suitable for anyone interested in dynamic yoga. To start with, the body is awakened through a series of sun salutations, which are then followed by more powerful strengthening and stretching movements (asanas). The workout ends with calming and relaxing movements on the floor and, finally, full relaxation.

Yoga for everyone

Gentle and simple yoga based on the principles of Hatha yoga. These classes are well suited for those who want to try out yoga for the first time. In terms of starting positions and movements, these classes are designed for participants of different body types, sizes, and mobility patterns. A good choice as a well-being at work activity, as well.


Indoor activity where you can learn about shooting a recurve bow, in both theory and practice. If the group so wishes, some sessions can also take place outside. Improves muscle control and concentration. Suitable for groups with a maximum of 12 persons.

Body maintenance classes

A gentle and effective body maintenance class with some yoga and Pilates elements, which teach you to benefit from timing your breathing right. Includes a lot of stretching and core-strengthening movements. At times, we also use trigger rollers or Pilates rollers. Both couch potatoes and experienced exercisers should include this class in their schedule at least once a week! The class is suitable for anyone that is able to get down onto the floor.


Pilates is a body control method whose primary goal is to encourage optimal functional posture by strengthening the abdominal area, learning to move in a physiologically correct way and breathing deeper. The lesson includes powerful Pilates exercises that improve core control and strengthen the deep muscles of the body with the help of effective breathing techniques. A very good form of body maintenance for people with back problems or other similar issues.

Power yoga

An athletic and dynamic form of yoga that will get your heart pumping and strengthen your core. In these classes, breathing is used to connect the movements and postures into a set that improves posture and strengthens the body. About 20% of the class consists of stopping, 50% of dynamic standing movements, 30% of gentle movements on the floor. Class duration is either 50 minutes or 75 minutes.


A 30-minute exercise that is done while sitting in Peurunka’s 50-degree infrared sauna. The gentle Saunapilates workout will relax your back and strengthen your neck and shoulder muscles in a gentle way. The silence of the sauna and the Pilates-based exercises will relax and strengthen your body. The exercises are particularly well suited for those whose backs are strained by sitting in an office or by tough workouts. Wear clean shorts or short training pants and a tank top or sleeveless shirt. Shower before and after the exercises.

Saunayoga ®

Shindo ® relaxing stretching exercises

An effective way of relieving stress that you have already accumulated, as well as maintaining the flexibility and preventing the build-up of tension. The Shindo stretching exercises influence the body’s energy pathways – known as meridians – removes blockages, balances the body and relaxes the lower back, shoulder area and legs. The exercises are simple, and they are done at a calm and peaceful pace while listening to one’s body.


A relaxing stretching session, perfect after a run or other exercise, or by itself to improve mobility.

Stretch & Relax

A relaxing stretching session, perfect after a run or other exercise, or by itself to improve mobility. The workout ends with a relaxation exercise.

Yin Yoga

This class is based on calming Yin Yoga asanas. In Yin Yoga, the postures are held for long periods of time without relaxing. You do not need to have previous experience with yoga to participate. The asanas have a stretching effect on the target muscles and connective tissue, which are kept fully relaxed. Yin Yoga is particularly good for increasing the mobility of the back and joints, improving posture and relaxing.

Trigger rolling

The class consists of self-care, mobility and balance exercises. For the most part, we use a foam roller to release trigger points, acupoints and painful areas. The exercise aims to return the body to an optimal state where there are as few blockages as possible. A good option for recovery and body maintenance.


Guys are flexible too – but not necessarily in the same way as the ladies. Äijäjooga is a simple form of hatha yoga, with the starting positions and movements specifically tailored to suit male participants. These classes are well suited for people who feel quite stiff but would like to improve their mobility. A popular well-being at work activity.


Our strength classes help you develop your muscles through a variety of low-threshold gym circuits or more demanding Crossi and Hiitti classes.

Bosu training

Bosu is a half ball developed for exercise use. It is especially good for improving balance and core muscle strength. In addition to the core, Bosu can help you train any muscle group: for example, basic squats and lunges will be much more challenging with Bosu. At Peurunka, we often use this tool in circuit training or other muscle training.

Box & Core

Intense interval training that includes boxing, especially good for strengthening your core. Energetic boxing exercises alternate with strength training, and at the end we take a moment to stretch.


Circuit-type strength training with different types of equipment. The exercises are designed to increase the heart rate in intervals, so the class is suitable for people at different levels of fitness. The class includes a short warm-up and some stretching at the end.


These effective muscle training classes focus on the core of the body (back muscles, transverse abdominal muscles, straight and oblique abdominal muscles). The class is suitable for people at different levels of fitness. The class includes 15–20 minutes of stretching at the end. Ideal as a final exercise of the day, for example. We often also combine core training with other classes, for example Spin FIT 45´+ Core 15´ on Saturdays.

Core & Booty

In these classes, the core training is complemented by a booty workout. Choose these classes when you want a fit body and booty. The class includes 10–15 minutes of stretching at the end.


A form of exercise that aims at even and varied development. It will improve your strength, endurance, speed and mobility. Crossi has been created in Peurunka, and it is a “cousin” of the hugely popular CrossFit. The exercises are easy to adjust depending on the participants’ fitness level.

Fitnessbag ® workout changed to Bägitreeni

Fitnessbag/Bägitreeni is an exercise tool resembling a punching bag and weighing 5, 10, 15 or 20 kg. It has all the best features of a kettlebell, a fitness ball, a weighted bar and a punching bag.

Fitnessbag is extremely versatile and well suited for beginners, as well. Our classes are built upon three-movement sets where the basic movement is developed up to the third movement. Logical, easy and efficient, no step patterns. Come and give it a try!

Gymstick ® workout

A training tool that combines a stick with a rubber band. This simple and effective training tool can be used to train the large muscle groups while also strengthening the posture muscles. In addition, it helps you improve balance, mobility and muscle coordination. The resistance (aka “weight”) can be adjusted quickly by twisting the rubber band around the stick. The Gymstick’s resistance can be adjusted between 1–30 kg by switching between the different-coloured rubber bands. At Peurunka, we often use this tool in circuit training or other muscle training. A good wellbeing at work option for groups consisting of men.

Gym course for men

There tends to be only a few men in gym circuits. This group is aimed specifically at men who are hesitant to engage in guided group exercise due to the perception that these groups only consist of women. In this group, we teach you to use gym equipment safely and efficiently – without forgetting the core of strength training, aka controlled but continuous improvement. Even if you have gym experience, this course may give you a new perspective on working out.

Gym instruction
