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!

February Girls’ Night Out


We like to have girls’ nights out every so often for our members to have a fun time and hang out with friends. For the month of February, we had a burlesque party on the 22nd and one of our amazing instructors, Lexi, taught us a fun routine. We had so much fun dressing up, dancing, and having fun! Make sure to join us for the next girls’ night out. Check out the video HERE and make sure you keep up to date with our events by liking our Facebook page!

Bittersweet Studios had a great time at the Southern Women’s Show in October demonstrating pole and aerial silks. Visitors to the show were awed and amazed by the girls and were intrigued by the idea of aerial fitness. We loved being able to show women an alternative form of fitness that doesn’t involve the boring repetition of going to the gym.
