Who: Moms and their little kids.
What: Spring is almost here, we hope!!! Join teacher, Shana Dastur, for a 4 week series of walking, running, cardio bursts and stretching, all using your stroller as added resistance. This one hour class is perfect for anyone looking to move a little, while having your baby or toddler along for the ride. You do not need a jog stroller, any stroller will do. You do not need any experience. The series will begin slow and build strength and cardio endurance. Walking fast can always be substituted for any running, and modifications will be offered through out class. The general idea is to move!
