Dear Synergy members, friends, clients & teachers of past and present,
It is with deep gratitude for all of you, and for the time spent over the last 7+ years, that I announce my recent decision to move on from my role as Co-Owner/Director of Synergy.
“Do it for you”… it’s what Synergy co-owner Jill Steel said as our bodies were in motion. It was the motivation that keeps us going, keeps the body moving, strengthening every part; mind and body.
Options and choices that fit your lifestyle… Cardio Dance, Functional Strength Training, Ballet and much more are offered by Synergy regularly online during this pandemic time, but if you miss a live class you can always take the class when it fits into your life as each is recorded and offered on-demand for your convenience.
