The Fine Print:

We offer a variety of classes and packages for every level and  fitness style. Although we pride ourselves on offering modifications for each and every class so they are accessible to all, we recognize it may be helpful to distinguish between beginning and more advanced levels. For simplicity, classes on the schedule color-coded green are truly fit for all abilities. Classes color coded blue are a bit more of challenge and are suitable for those looking for a little bit more in their practice or class.

You should consult your physician or other health care professional before attending these or any other fitness classes to determine if it they right for your needs. Do not start this fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.

By attending our classes you are agreeing to the following statement:

“I understand that classes at Thrive include physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re- education and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the teacher. I will continue to breathe smoothly. Classes are not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Fitness classes are not recommended and are not safe under certain medical conditions. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to participate. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Thrive Wellness and it’s instructors.”
