- There have been Constant Contact emails sent out with Fall start information over the last two weeks. If you did not receive or see the three emails, please check your Spam file. If they are there, please create a Rule to send these emails to your inbox file. If you haven’t received them at all, please let me know so I can check into why. Maybe I need a new email address from you?
- The Contrology exercises we worked on in depth today were The 100’s, Roll Up, Roll Over and into Leg Circles—modified and with props as you need. (Clients: Please see on class invitation, I added the prop list to the Calendar invite.) This list was sent out by Constant Contact. I have the props at the studio if you need to purchase for your home studio. Again, they are not essential, by they certainly do enhance the workout to improvement your connections and movement. Let me know if you need something.
