General Information

Empowering Women for Wellness is a 6-week class series, to support you in your pre- and post-partum wellness journey.  Classes will be 90 minutes in length.  Class will begin with a 20-30 minute walk around the indoor track at the YMCA where classes are located.  All levels of fitness are welcome!  Following this we’ll spend 45-60 minutes talking about nutrition, healthy cooking, doing food tastings, and more! 

A few things to consider before coming to class:

  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
  • If you’d like, bring paper and pen to take notes.
  • You’re welcome (and encouraged!) to bring a water bottle.
  • If needed, please feel free to bring snacks.
