Introducing WesBAM! (Fitness Instructors Needed)

Yogi extraordinaire Shira Engel ’14 writes in to announce that Wexercise is back this fall as WesBAM! (Wesleyan Body and Mind!). The new group aims to be more accessible, include more students, and cut the prices of classes in half:
WesBAM! is a student-run organization that makes mind-body awareness and fitness accessible at Wesleyan through offering classes in a wide variety of practices – yoga, kickboxing, spin, Zumba, and more. We believe these practices should be accessible to everyBODY and are committed to helping students incorporate them into the college lifestyle. While strengthening our bodies as we nurture our minds, we aim to create a community of fun and respect for both our bodies and each other.
