Classes focus on workouts that challenge the entire body by going from exercise to exercise with little to no rest. The goal is to maintain a moderate to high level of exertion for the duration of the session, providing an efficient and highly effective workout. Basic training focuses on those who are just getting started and teaches form and technique to build up for more advanced classes. Best of all, it’s FUN!

You can expect a more graceful and sculpted body, embodying confidence, presence and ease of movement.
