On-going Series, Special Events and Small Group Personal Training
Specialty series and events are designed with specific start and end dates and students are expected to attend all classes within the time frame. Students learn through an established progression of content and technique. Due to the nature of instruction, class enrollments typically are small in number. Examples of a specialty series are Small Group Personal Training, Tai Chi and Yoga with a Chair. Events are periodically scheduled at Body Moves Fitness and Wellness Center to provide focused learning or skill development in specific topics and movement disciplines. The events include workshops, intensives, seminars, clinics, camps, and special presentations. To select, purchase, and register for specialty classes and events, click on the link to the events.
