FITNESS CLASSES:

Most of the exercise classes are on the punch card fee system.  $5 per class!  Check them all out. All Exercise Classes  are located in the Cupertino room of the Assisi Community Center.   (Please Note that Strength and Scripture Yoga & BodyPump currently have no fees as they are “DVD Guided” and do not have a paid instructor and that Women’s Self Defense &  Yoga For Kids have their own pay structure)

 Yoga for Kids   No classes currently scheduled.       

Yoga for Kids offers a fun and creative approach to Yoga that is very beneficial for growing bodies. The use of animated poses and basic stretching exercises promote strength, coordination, body awareness and flexibility. Breathing and visualization techniques teach children how to focus, relax and develop self-control. Kids will improve concentration, stimulate imagination and release energy in a safe and nurturing environment. Using interactive games and animated postures, kids learn about animals, nature and basic anatomy through yoga. Yoga for Children promotes inner-strength, confidence and self-esteem; a feeling of well-being and respect for all living things and a love for one’s self, inside and out.
