$25 – $35

About Wellness 101
It is time to get back to the basics! Why do you really need to exercise? What exactly is yoga? Spin classes are for athletes only, right? The answers to these and many other questions will be answered in our Wellness 101 Workshop Series. Starting in September, each month you will have the opportunity to get into the “classroom” and learn how health and fitness can fit into your life. Each class will focus on a different wellness topic and break it down to its simplest terms. Information will be presented, examples will be given, demonstrations will be performed, and you will be able to try new things in a comfortable, learning atmosphere. Sign up for one class, or sign up for them all!

About the Instructor – Karli Taylor
Karli Taylor With an education in Criminology, fitness wasn’t Karli’s original career path. Like it does with most people who are passionate about health and wellness, the fitness industry found her. Her own battle with body image and eating disorders led her to seek information to strengthen her own body and mind. Her passion was so apparent that people started to ask her for help and guidance in their own fitness journeys. Knowing her limits at the time, Karli decided to study to become a certified personal trainer. One certification led to two and as the letters after her name multiplied quickly, it became clear that she was not going to pursue her childhood dream of joining the FBI. Wanting to impact more lives, Karli became certified to teach other trainers. She took a position with a health club chain that allowed her to learn the ins and outs of the business side of the industry. Dealing with a few nagging injuries, she decided to try yoga to improve her flexibility. She quickly learned that yoga was so much more than stretching, and when faced with a major career change it was yoga that allowed her to stay sane. Karli now is the owner of a small studio offering yoga, barre and Spinning. She recently completed her 200 hour RYT and teaches anatomy for The Pure Warrior Yoga School in Albany. Her most recent venture is the development of BarreFlow, a barre fitness program based on the principles of corrective exercise for which she has always had a passion. You can be certain of this: Her journey does not end here.
