She also is wonderful at providing adaptations to all poses so participants of all abilities can partake in her class.
Laurie is a speech therapist with extensive experience in music. She also plays in a local band. Laurie takes participants on a music journey, engaging them in various genres, rhythm, melody, pitch and tempo. Playing instruments and singing are also a part of this fun filled hour.
Jody brings in waves of energy and gets our clients up and moving! Jody teaches circuit training, drumfit and zumba that are sure to work up a sweat. Music changes regularly and so do the exercises so that everyone gets a great workout.
