Join Us for Weekly Midday Yoga on Wednesdays! (see this week's above!)

Virtual Yogalates! We can all feel overwhelmed at times - so take a midweek break and relax with BeWell @ CHC's yogalates class. It'll give you a 30-45 minute break every Wednesday at noon to practice your breathing, stretching, and mental focus. There will be progressions and regressions of moves - so everyone can join in at their own level and work on their own self needs. Follow along live on CHC's FB page!

Join Us for Weekly Zumba on Zoom on Fridays!

Get up and get moving to the beat as every Friday you'll have the opportunity to join in a live Zumba class on Zoom. The Zumba class usually runs for 45 minutes to an hour but you can feel to do as much or as little as you like! It’s really fun and if you’re not someone who’s great with dance moves (like a lot of participants) just do what you can and keep moving and dancing to the beat! Make sure to email for the Zoom link and meeting ID!
