I have never done a class before, what should I expect when I arrive?
Do not worry! When you arrive you should most likely be greeted by the b. leader Let the leader know who you are and that this is your first class. They will get you all set up and feeling very comfortable. The most important thing about your first time doing The b. class® is that you have FUN! Do not worry about doing the moves right or keeping up or making it perfect, just follow along and try to focus on the music and not just the moves. It takes about three classes to really feel like you can settle in and not have to think so much, but trust 'us' with a little letting go and some fun smiles, you will enjoy yourself and get a great workout in more and more each time you come. The leader will address the class and welcome everyone before starting. The class is usually 60-75 minutes.
You will finish the class on the floor doing shavasana and stretching so if you would like, bring a yoga mat.
Will I be able to keep up?
Yes! Every class is different, but one of the great things about The b. class®is that all levels can all participate, each class is adaptable to your fitness level. We always have a variety of participants in each class, and we honour individuals making modifications and finding what works well for their bodies. What's also a great reminder is that The b.class® is more about the music and the mind and the bounus is that your body gets a good workout along the way. Just being in the room with the other participants makes the experience special.
