Free Fitness & Health Classes

Yoga, Tai Chi, Body by Broadway, Body Barre, Hoola Hooping, Dancing, Zumba, Capoeira, Parkour, and more!

If you’ve been wanting to get more active and/or check any of these out but don’t want to commit to the time and expense of a gym membership or a class package, you don’t have to. Many of the classes below are offered regularly in park settings or on outdoor patios, and you can drop in to any one and check it out. If you like it, you can go back another time – or as often as you like. They’re free! Or you can at least try them out and see if you might like to go do any of these elsewhere.

Including these in case any of you might find them helpful because when we feel better, we are then in a better position to go pursue our goals and accomplish our tasks. Cheers. Sante. (To your health!)
