3/21-4/10/16: Dynamic & Static Movement, Sprints & Sculling.
I've always liked monkeys, but now I know that sloths are fantastic! My procrastination hours were easily filled with baby sloths. I also learned that they swim with a sculling motion that is much faster than movement on land. Good to know!

2/29-3/20/16: Kicks, Footwork, Toega
Today’s Jelly (class theme) is Movin’ with Minions! We’ll use our tiny yellow feet to practice kicks in the pool, footwork on the wall, and toega on the mat.
Quality "Minion literature" is lacking, so I've gone with books about bananas, villains, things that look like Minions, and a few books based on the movie.
Swimmers will focus on kicking and experimenting with new leg movements.
We will learn to use the strongest part of our foot and make a plan to use the available footholds.
Yogis will tickle and massage their feet as they stretch and breath with the little yellow guys.
Find out what our students are learning today.
What is a Jelly?
A Jelly is the focus or theme of a class. Each Jelly lasts for 2-4 weeks and spans across the disciplines.
