Broga

You are guaranteed to touch your toes by the end of the class, even if your downward dog looks more like a lost puppy! To celebrate your hard work there will be a cold beer on us after the class.

Matt is raising some cash for Movember and men’s health awareness month so any donations are much appreciated!

Members are welcome to bring 1 guest to free events. To reserve a space please email signup@thedepartmentstore.com
