A big thumbs up to Manpreet and Amit for their energy, inclusion, acceptance and great dance moves! The classes are fun and inclusive to all despite individuals age or fitness levels.
Manpreet and Amit are very embracing and welcome all to their classes from beginners to those who are used to doing regular classes. While I have been undertaking other online classes during lock down mainly through virtual classes from my gym, this class has been particularly good during Covid19 as it connects people through dance and meditation and is taught with genuine care and warmth in a group virtual setting.
I would like to thank Manpreet and Amit for all they are doing to keep people connected from different parts of the world and spreading their positive energy and enthusiasm for keeping active and helping build fitness and energy during these uncertain and changing times and bringing people together.
The choreography is good and the classes are well taught between Manpreet and Amit. I have attended several Saturday classes of theirs and look forward to attending more!
