I regularly attend Tasha’s beginner tricks class Saturday morning and Poleates Sunday morning, and I’ve never had such an enjoyable or educational fitness experience. Tasha is knowledgeable and so very welcoming. I have already learned so much about my body and she has been so attentive to my specific needs. I’m recovering from a hysterectomy and recently noticed some wrist issues with my Jasmine and she’s been concerned with my safety and is helping me work on some mechanics, and she’s even checked in with me later (in her free time) when I thought I may have overdone it with my second post-op class. Long story short, Tasha is freaking fantastic and I feel lucky to have found her and the rest of the Knockout Bodies community!
