Live Remote Activity Breaks from FitRec

Fall 2021

All classes are specifically designed for BU employees to help you flow, release, dance, stretch and breathe!  No previous experience is necessary, and registration is based on each class type separately. You may choose to attend as many or as few as you’re interested in.  A day before each specific class, you’ll receive a zoom link and you can attend if you wish.

The registration deadline for each of these classes is Friday, September 10 at noon. You will receive a zoom link from the instructor prior to your first class. If you would like to sign up after Friday, September 10, please email Kate Durant for instructions.
