More than 15 classes are scheduled per week at Studio Goddess, including pole- and flirty fitness workouts that help participants bolster confidence and climb up trees quickly when confronted by a prowling wolf pack. Sessions such as Pole-Lates and Shake Your Abs blend dance and muscle-toning movements, and various pole-fitness levels progress students from basic spins to upside-down high-fives. Private pole parties teach small groups to twirl around the studio's 14-foot poles while celebrating special events or simply helping to "unleash the goddess" in each woman.
Yoga and Arts' diverse schedule offers students sundry exciting passageways to increased wellness, including fitness classes in calming yoga, upbeat zumba, and ballroom dance, as well as craft-based classes such as Knitting with Marilyn on Saturdays.
