  • better mood, with lower levels of depression, stress, and anxiety
  • greater muscle strength
  • enhanced flexibility, balance, and agility; which reduces falls
  • lower blood pressure and improved heart health
  • reduced Inflammation

What To Wear

Wear clothing you are comfortable in - that doesn’t bind your movement. You need to be able to comfortably move through your entire range of motion without being restricted by your clothes. A comfy shirt, and sweats, shorts, or leggings are great. Try not to wear tight jeans or shirts that pull on your shoulders. Socks are the preferred footwear indoors, but if you feel more comfortable in something with flat soles, or if you wear orthotics, then by all means wear them!

NOTE - Arrive 10 minutes early to give yourself time to changes, and store your belongings in our locker room. Bring your own lock. Shower facilities are available, if you would like to use one after the class please bring shower toiletries and towels. See you there!
