Class Descriptions:

Zumba Gold is a low-impact version of Zumba dance fitness that keeps all of the fun. Plan to dance, sweat, and have a ton of fun. Zumba Gold is geared to active older adults but everyone is welcome. You can expect a variety of music including both Pop and K-Pop. The Friday Zumba Gold EZ class is a little slower, less complex and shorter (45 min).
Why try it? I do dance walk-throughs and even put up videos of some dances so that everyone can do them.

Zumba Gold Toning is similar to Zumba but we use 1lb Zumba Toning Sticks that also act as maracas. Don't have any? No problem, come anyway! Our combo class mixes regular Zumba Gold with Zumba Gold Toning. You can do the whole class or part of it with or without toning sticks.

Senior Strong is a class that focuses on strength, toning, flexibility and balance. We use 2, 3, or 5lb dumbbells. Don't have any? Try a water bottle (preferably full) or a few cans of soup. We do exercises sitting or standing. So a chair without wheels is recommended. Friday's Senior Strong EZ is shorter (45 min) and slightly easier.

Barre is a class that focuses on strength, toning, flexibility and balance. It is not a ballet or dance class. You'll need a chair without wheels to act as your barre during the class. If you have a set of 2, 3, or 5lb dumbbells and a 6 or 9 inch pilates ball, bring them. If not, we'll make do with whatever you have around the house.

K-Pop Pilates is a beginner's Mat Pilates class. What makes this class different? Music! K-Pop music! No experience is necessary. A mat, a towel and a bottle of water are recommended.

Recover, Stretch, Thrive a class to recover from exercising or from life in general. We'll do some range of motion, stretching, and Myofascial reslease. Everything on our body has a container, a thin layer of tissue. It's called 'fascia'. It covers our organs, bones, muscles and nerves. Its purpose is to keep everything in the right place. We'll be using a tennis ball to aid in Myofascial reslease.

Please discuss these class formats with your doctor prior to attending classes. If you have questions or need accomodations, feel free to email me at
