Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. Come join us Monday nights at 5:45pm. The studio will be heated between 85-95 degrees, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
We are located on Huron Street across from the YMCA. Look for blue door #22 with a red buddha on it. You are allowed to park in the lot in front of the studio. We share a parking lot with several businesses including the Yellow Barn.

It stars an adolescent Pola Negri, who would later become the legendary femme fatale of the silent era, and tells the story of a young Jewish woman from a Polish shtetl who is constrained by anti-Semitic restrictions to lead a double life in a brothel while attempting to study medicine in Tsarist Russia. The film includes precious footage of the former Jewish quarter of Warsaw and the people who once lived there.
