Class schedule and information

PLEASE NOTE: As Ottawa and most of the rest of the world have instituted policies in an effort to control the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus our regular classes and workshops are suspended for the foreseeable future. We hope to resume regular classes at such time as the proper authorities and the facilites where we train deem that it is possible to do so safely. As an alternative, we are offering private online classes by appointment.

Our regular weekly classes, workshops and other programs are open to women, men, boys and girls of all ages and fitness levels.
We've had students as young as 4 and well over 60, so we don't set age limits but we are mindful of what is appropriate for a specific individual.
