Class descriptions

We offer a variety of classes for varying levels of fitness. This is to ensure your safety, and also yours and the groups' satisfaction in classes. Instructors can offer slight variations in some exercises, though if the overall class is too easy, choose a higher level class 2 or 3, or if a class is too hard, choose a lower level 1 class. All classes are not for everyone!
