Jane has developed a clear narrative that guides you through a safe, grounded, and energizing connection with your body. Each class is a variation on these essential elements:
In the beginning
The class begins with a gentle and comprehensive warm-up.
This phase is designed to loosen your joints, warm your muscles, and establish core support.
In the middle
A cardio workout comes next, not-so-subtly disguised as a joyful dance party (affectionately called Boing). The music is eclectic and irresistible. The dancing is as gentle or intense as you choose, with no set choreography.
During these 20-25 minutes, Jane threads a loose connection within the group by modeling movement ideas. But you’re free to dance as you wish.
If you’re unsure about dancing, not to worry: you’ll be seduced into the fun. Over time, you will tend to gain ease and confidence, plus a growing vocabulary of dance moves.
In the end
With the vibrant dance energy still circulating in your body, Jane guides the class through breath and body-mind awareness. This cool-down phase is a grounding and centring experience. The class concludes with strengthening and stretching exercises that are profoundly satisfying.
