South Ogden Pilates, Yoga and Zumba

Wasatch Therapy in South Ogden is updating its pricing and class availability this spring!

I promise it's really good news, and here's why.

In the past, you bought a 12-punch pass for $100. That let you attend Pilates 12 times, whether you chose to go twice a week, or to stretch out the pass FOREVER. It wasn't a very good system because it didn't motivate participants to work out on a regular schedule, nor did it let them attend other classes like Zumba or Yoga without buying separate passes for another $100.

Starting in May, Wasatch will be offering a flat, monthly rate for attendance in Pilates, Yoga and Zumba classes. That means for $45 per month, you can attend up to 6 classes each week; 2 Pilates, 2 Yoga and 2 Zumba classes. For your $45 monthly payment (no membership required) you can get more bang for your buck!

I'm excited about this change because it'll increase the effectiveness of your workout. Cross-training is key to weight loss, so now having the option of three different types of classes will help you get swimsuit-ready that much faster.

And with no contract required, having a $45 month-to-month fee is a sweet deal. If you know you'll be out of town for most of one month, then you can still attend classes for the $5 or $10 drop-in fee if you'd rather not pay $45 up front.

I don't know what more motivation you need, so I'll see you at Wasatch Therapy soon!

Weber State University Fitness

Ready for summer? Me too.

I'm going to dive right in with parent/child swim classes at Weber State (thanks to Aspen's grandparents!) and if you want to join me with your kids, let me know.

I'm also still teaching Pilates for WSU, and you'll find me there every Wednesday at 6:30am. Pilates will only be offered at Promontory Tower in that time slot, so make sure you get to bed early on Tuesdays!

It'll be a real change for me, getting out of the house by 6am, but it'll be worth it when I'm not embarrassed to be seen in my swim suit at Aspen's swim lessons!

Classes will still be free for participants with active Wildcards, and only $6 for community drop in. See you bright and early starting May 4th!

Pilates at Borrowed Earth Emporium

I'm thrilled to be joining Borrowed Earth Emporium in their quest to satisfy Ogden's need for Yoga, Pilates, Crepes, local music and so much more.

Starting May 10, I'll be offering a Pilates class at 9am Tuesday at BEE, so come on by and kick-start your summer by getting into this habit now!

BEE also offers massage, a co-op, a cafe and just a cool place to hang out and enjoy what local Ogden has to offer. I love the feel in Borrowed Earth and I'm grateful I'm now a part of it.

See you Tuesdays at 9am!

Yoga Jo's Studio in North Ogden

I attended one of Jo's classes last week and loved the atmosphere. Her studio is hidden away on the top floor of a business building in North Ogden (2120 Washington Blvd). You'd never know it was there if it wasn't for the big sign in front of the complex.

Once you get up the stairs and into the space, the bells tinkle on the door and you're welcomed with a hug. Jo had never met me before, but she greeted me like an old friend.

The practice space is vibrant and warm, with prayer flags strung the length of the room. Jo's signature geckos make an appearance in the decor as well. Kids and adults alike, novices and seasoned Yogis practice together at Yoga Jo's.

The music is casual and fun. There's a mix of contemporary and more traditional tunes to get you going in your practice. Jo learns your name and isn't afraid to call you out when you need an adjustment on your posture or when she wants your opinion on what move should come next.

Jo has extended an offer for me to substitute one of her classes this week, and I hope you'll join me. Every class is FREE (but since teachers volunteer their time, even just $1 tips are encouraged) and you can rent a mat for only $1.

If you'd like to join me at Yoga Jo's, stop by on Friday at 5:45 for practice. It'll run just over an hour, and you'll feel great afterward. You can reserve your free spot by going online to Yoga Jo's website and registering.

See you Friday!
