This class is focused on improving your dynamic balance, using a combination of static and dynamic balance exercises to improve your ability to move in different directions. Light ankle or hand weights are welcome to increase the challenge of the exercises. Each class includes a 5 minute dynamic warm-up, two 10-minute balance circuits, and a 5 minute cool down. The classes are designed to build off the previous sessions, so you want to make sure you join every week!
