Join us for a fun, holiday-themed class that provides a comprehensive workout, including strength, balance, coordination, and aerobic exercises.  Based on the zany holiday tradition of Festivus, we will perform feats of strength, air grievances about hard to do (but worthwhile!) aerobic exercises, work on balance with our Festivus poles, and finish off with miraculous coordination exercises.

This one-of-a-kind class integrates evidence-based exercises in an upbeat and engaging format. The only equipment required is a pole - could be a cane, tall umbrella, or broom. Seated and standing options will be offered.
