Bokwa Master Class

On Saturday April 27th Bittersweet Studios hosted a Bokwa master class taught by Lauren Machamer. Bokwa is a high-intensity, easy to follow cardio class that is an amazing workout. In Bokwa, you follow the shapes of letters and numbers as you move, so there’s no new complicated choreography to learn with each new song. Bittersweet is hosting a Bokwa certification on Sunday May 5th if you’re interested in becoming a certified Bokwa instructor. Call the studio at 904-451-2627 for more information!
