Friday, Oct. 23, 12 noon
– 30 min class with Alicia 
– Theme: Cardio – Alicia’s class is designed to get your muscles warm and your heart thumping hard. We’ll work through a collection of dynamic, large range movements to challenge the heart and lungs, get sweaty and release tension. Most importantly, Alicia wants you to find joy in moving your body as it is right now. Today. All moves are low impact (at least one foot on the ground at all times) and adaptable to account for tender knees, hips and tight low backs. Discover how good it feels to move in a way that makes you feel powerful and strong.
