How does a ZOOM Walking fitness session work?
The ZOOM walking fitness sessions involve listening to an exercise session on YouTube, while BSRV’s Program Coordinator provides verbal explanations about some of the moves involved. Our Program Coordinator will also verbally describe some of the moves prior to the YouTube video commencing via the zoom link.
Sessions run 30 to 45 minutes.
Find more information on our Zoom Walking Fitness page

What is an Energy Balance class?
Jenny’s new class is all about balancing energy so that we can optimise our health and wellbeing.  The class will activate your energy, breathe and relax with soft flowing movements.
Sessions run 45 to 60 minutes.
