Hello Anselm, Caroline, Emily, Danielle and Brenda:
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. You all expressed my goals so well, that is of providing a workout that particularly challenged hip mobility and strength to aid with dance or help you feel like a dancer!
Challenging but not exhausting. I feel upright, open, and tall after doing this! Thanks
Wow! That was amazing! I am not a dancer but I totally love these type of classes. It brings a totally new dimension to focusing on the hips which is serving my body very well. Thank you for such beautiful instruction Karen. Your years of experience are a gift to us all!
Fantastic. I feel great. Thank you!
