AND RANGE OF
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You should wear comfortable workout clothes – and no shoes.
We do the class in bare feet because you need to feel full contact
with the fl oor for the balancing and postural work. In colder
weather, you may also need to bring something warm to wear
for the relaxation and meditation sequence. Some clubs may ask
you to bring a Yoga mat, and you may prefer to do so anyway –
however, this is not essential.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO BODYBALANCE™?
Youâ€™ll feel real benefi ts from coming to class just once a week,
but coming three times a week is ideal.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS?
It usually takes about three classes to understand the feel and
structure of the class and moves. You may experience some
mild muscle soreness at fi rst, but this will quickly pass and be
followed by noticeable strength and flexibility gains and postural
improvement. From the very fi rst class, you should start to
experience the stress-reducing and spiritually renewing benefi ts
