It is the middle of winter.
Energy is a little low, “sigh…”
The weather is a little intimidating with all the snow and ice and icy cold mountains of slush. It’s not just the ubiquitous boots, but the whole experience of walking down the street makes people scream, “Ugg!”
We see this and so, we thought we would make it a little easier to do something good for you!
All courses starting in February are half-price, even if they span into March.
Yup, half-price! :) We knew this would add a little warmth to your winter!
Here is a list of what is going on in the next couple weeks.
