The Kickstart program came along at the perfect time. For lots of reasons I was worn out physically and spiritually and knew that I needed to get myself back on track – the Kickstart program has been the perfect solution. Tasha is a gifted instructor – her extensive knowledge, joy, and passion in delivering this unique program makes all the difference. The program is great fun and this is coming from a person who was nervous about being able to “keep up” when I signed up. Each class is a unique blend of breath, alignment, strength, balance, cardio and core. The perfect combination. Each week builds on the previous week and strength and abilities build over time – at a pace that is fun and sustainable. And Tasha always provides modifications. I am so glad I signed up for the Kickstart program to regain a sense of physical health and well being but also to discover a sense of social connection with fellow participants as we get together each week. I highly recommend the Kickstart program. ~ Pam Thompson

I have taken many good exercise classes over the years but the Kickstart program with Tasha Mae is the first where I have learned the important basic elements on which to build improvements in my posture, breathing and core strength in a way that this has become part of my daily routine. After only a few weeks I noticed improvements in reduced lower back pain, more flexibility, greater strength and improved energy. I look forward to every class as I see more and more improvement with each one. ~ Vicky Scott

As a current participant I can say this program is awesome, it has developed my physical literacy on a whole different level, it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I am still here more than a year later because it IS that good. I do it on Zoom and I don’t feel like I’m sacrificing any quality in the teaching/learning/practice relationship. ~ Emily Smith
