Mondays 11:00am – 12:00pm EST
One time investment of $150. Lessons you will use for life.
You can participate in the first 2 classes with little to no equipment! Have a firm chair, bench, or stool for the first class.
As we move along, a pair of massage balls (or 2 tennis balls held together in a sock) and something for light to moderate weight (a kettlebell, dumbbell, or a heavy book) is encouraged. By week 3 please also have a resistance band loop. We’ll go over equipment recommendations together in the first 2 classes so you’ll be prepared for later classes.
Yes! There will be replay videos available if you can’t attend live. Video recordings will become available a few hours after each live class. You will have access to class replays for 1 year.
Questions? Not sure if this style of class is appropriate for you at this time? I’m happy to discuss.
