6 Ways to Get Optimal Amount of Omega 3 Fats In Your Diet

Retreats with Annette


NOTE:  The forecast is calling for scattered thunderstorms this week BUT if we are lucky they will be in the afternoon.  Let's plan on the pool for the Wed and Fri AM classes unless you hear from me otherwise.  That means show up for 10AM sharp if you want the optional Pilates and then we head to the pool for 10:30AM.  If you are running late for the 10AM optional Pilates, please just meet us at the pool to reduce disruptions to the Pilates class. 

Due to vacations etc, Tuesday 7PM classes will be cancelled beginning in July.  We will resume these classes when the weather cools off in the Fall (Sept or Oct).  We will be adding pop up WARM Yin Yoga and Hot Power Yoga (90 minutes) during the day times.  Stay tuned for these classes.  You will receive an email as the classes are added! 

We are considering opening up a Monday 6PM Aqua Yoga class.  We will run these classes in a 4 week series.  The price of this class for 4 weeks will be $48.  If we have enough interest, this class will begin Monday July 3rd.  If we have inclement weather during those 4 weeks, the following Wed evening will be used as the makeup class.  There will be no refunds or extensions for this 4 week series.  Please respond if you are interested in this class so we can determine if it will be on the schedule for July!
