UWRF City Sampler Winners!

We had a lot of really excited ladies stop by our booth at UWRF the beautiful morning of September 27 to find out about our pole and exercise classes, our workshops and parties. We had scores of entries vying for our prizes, and the following were winners:

  1. Katie S – Private Lesson
  2. Callie G – 5 Class Passes
  3. Jordan W – T-Shirt
  4. Alexis R – T-Shirt

Callie was one of the most excited ladies to visit with us. She and several friends returned for our 1:00 drawing…and Shellie drew her name! We were thrilled to award her the prize on the spot, and she was happy to pose with Tony the Pony.

Instructor Shellie—who probably mentioned her aerial yoga classes—had such a great time meeting students, staff and others at the UW-River Falls City Sampler, that she wants to do it again next year. We hope to see you there, or better yet, in one of our classes!

Dia de los Muertos!

This year Carousel is skipping Halloween and going for something even bigger. We are heading south of the border for the huge celebration of Dia de los Muertos! In case that three-day holiday doesn’t sound familiar, check out this brief primer.

Karina (our sexy Latina) has devised a workshop that will truly exhilarate you! Grab your amigas and your hottest heels and join us for this spicy but sweet celebration. A little pole, a little chair, a little floor, and just the right amount of sass. Take the routine home to perform for your honey…or just come and enjoy it for yourself.

The doors open at 6:00 pm on Friday, November 1, to give you plenty of time to hang out…or…to work on your costumes and makeup. (Costumes are encouraged but not required.) The party, I mean, the workshop cranks up at 7:00. Join a horde of colorful characters for dancing, refreshments and revelry.

As always, to reserve your place at this party, sign up on MindBody. All this for only $25! (And only $10 for members!)

Please join us for Dia de Muertos! Who knew that celebrating the dead could be so lively?

Con amor,
Lady K

Inspiration for the FREE Breast Cancer Survivor Class

How many ladies do you know who have or have had breast cancer?

My mom had it. My aunt had it. A coworker. Friends from church. Scared. Hurt. Haunted. But not alone and not hopeless.

It is wonderful that many of us are surrounded by supportive friends and family, but that is not enough. Every woman has an intimate, personal struggle that is hers alone. Even on the days she feels like she can’t crawl out of bed, let alone look at herself in the mirror; those are the days she most needs support…fresh air…movement…a sister who understands and “gets” her.

In 2001, I was “given” six months to live! While not breast cancer, I too am a survivor with my own physical and emotional scars. As a physical therapist, I have pursued women’s health, oncology, and lymphedema specializations. As the new owner of a women’s fitness studio, I have the opportunity to come alongside other women in their pain…in their recovery…helping them through the now…and helping them into their future with purpose and confidence.

If you know someone who has been touched with this disease, please invite them to our free class. If you are someone who has or has had it, please, please come! We are able to modify all exercises to push you, to stretch you—just enough. Our magical mirrors possess the power to show you how beautiful you really, truly are—scars and all!

Join us on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. No commitment. Just fun folks in a fun place who want to help you to enjoy being you. We can help you get your sparkle back and fully embrace the new and improved YOU.

You deserve this.

Welcome, Warrior.

Sweet September

Hello World!

Now that our website is mostly functional, we want to share a bit about what is, what was, and what shall be. Since it is already mid-month, all three apply to this month’s schedule!

We handed out small versions of the calendar at the Pepper Festival Parade in North Hudson on August 17. It was our fourth and final parade for the season.

Please share the word that we are offering a FREE Breast Cancer Survivor class on Thursdays at 5:30 PM. The class is sculpted to each person’s need.
