All programs start with an Assessment Session!

Assessment sessions are $20 and serve as an introduction to our programs.  The participant will be able to meet us, get comfortable in our studio and try each movement & exercise.  We assess how the participant will best learn each exercise, what their current level of functioning is in order to make appropriate modifications, and we learn what will motivate the participant to perform the program.
