A brief skills test will be given to assess your skill level and ability. A suggestion will be made after your testing as to whether or not a Masters Class is suitable for you.

How do I sign my child up for Child Minding?

To sign your child(ren) up for child minding, you can use our Mindbody app! All classes that offer childminding will have a "Child Minding" class posted 5 minutes prior to the class that you are taking. This is so you can use your own mindbody account to register your child. If you have more than one child, please contact us via, phone, facebook, or e-mail, so we can make sure to reserve spots for all your kiddos! Keep in mind there is limited spots available and Child Minding regularly sells out!

Do I need to pre-register for Child Minding?

Yes! We only take a limited number of children for child minding each class. Register your kid(s) online, call in, or message us before the class so we know how many persons to expect so we don't exceed capacity!

Do I need to pre-register for classes?

We recommend that you pre-register but it is not a requirement for regularly scheduled classes. However all classes have a capacity, if you do not per-register your spot, there is a possibility the class will be full and you will be unable to join us. 
We also offer Pre-Registered Sessions. It is highly recommended to participate in all classes scheduled as a session. In this case, we prefer that you pre-register for all the classes included in a session.
Please Note: The Mindbody mobile app does not allow you to view or purchase sessions. on your device. You must register online on the desktop version, or you can contact us and we would be happy to sign you up!
