Hello Everyone. 

It is with a very heavy heart that we have decided to shut down our training and drop-in services. This decision did not come lightly. We are very much trying to keep a level head about it all. But the world is shutting down around us, and I am immune compromised and have lung issues. 

‼️Boarding will still remain open.‼️

*****IF YOU ARE ON FACEBOOK***** Please follow us, as we will be trying to figure out a way to keep everyone going with training tips and fun!!! or a mini online course. I am not sure how we are going to do that yet... but we will figure it out.

Thank you for sticking with us. ❤️ Take good care of yourselves and each other. We can’t wait to see you all again! We look forward to reopening when a more clear direction is given and will be posting on Facebook, and Instagram with any updates. (Clients in existing groups will get emails)
