Time for Warrior Women to take care of our bodies through gentle stretching and toning. The class offers activities that can be performed sitting, standing or lying on the floor offering multiple exercises to help reduce pain and stiffness, maintain and improve mobility, muscle strength and function. And it's all done in a fun, welcoming environment.
We'll use pop dance moves from salsa to swing to English country dance and others (you get to help pick music and dances) in our own Warrior Women Dance Club.
