We're a little behind schedule today - with the first day of spring tomorrow, and some sunshine and warm temps outside today, we got distracted by the promise of warmer weather! We cover a lot of ground in today's post, including a March Madness update, the return of a favorite class, and new merch. Read on so you don't miss any of the news!
March Madness Update
It wouldn't be March Madness without some major upsets, and with both Duke and Villanova falling in the Round of 32, our March Madness contest entries took a hit. After the first two rounds of games, last year's bracket winner, Colleen, is in the lead with 113 points, but our second place contender, Naomi, is close behind with 110 points. There's still a lot of room for more surprises, so stay tuned to see who comes out on top!
Basketball not your thing? We get it - so we're also launching a Musical March Madness! Starting Wednesday of this week, check out our Facebook page for a daily poll to vote on your favorite Strike a Poise! songs. Each of our cardio dance instructresses submitted their favorite songs to teach, and we'll narrow down the entries bracket-style until one song reigns supreme.
Pop-Up Class: Buti this Saturday, 3/25, 9:30am, with Steph
We know you are probably missing BOOTY by Bradley, but how about some Buti in the meantime?
The BUTI movement fuses yoga, tribal dance and plyometrics and functions as the core of our wellness approach. Derived from the Marathi word Buti meaning “the cure to something hidden or kept secret,” the goal of this class is to guide women through movement and wellness that supports the female spirit — transforming lives from the inside-out. In BUTI classes, we focus on spiraling movements aimed at unlocking the Shakti Spiral as well as releasing the hips to help energy flow freely in the 1st and 2nd chakras. BUTI combines various styles of Hatha yoga with tribal-influenced dance sequences to keep the heart rate up, free the female spirit and help women form a tribe or sisterhood.

Spring arrives tomorrow... and we're ready to Spring it On!
The arrival of spring means many things - warmer temperatures, swapping out our Uggs for flip flops, open sunroofs, iced coffee, and best of all, the return of Spring it On! Our annual Spring it On! challenge brings out our competitive side, so start planning your teams now. We'll be announcing more details in the coming weeks and we can't wait to see what you've got for us this year!
As always, we thank you for respecting our studio policies - they're in place to make sure everyone has a great experience at Studio Poise. Please review our footwear policy before class to ensure you've got the right gear (clean indoor sneakers for cardio classes, and barresocks with grips or studio footwear for barre and Poise method classes). Kindly leave your cell phones in the lobby so as not to disrupt the class (and to keep them safe - our dance classes can get pretty heated and we'd hate for an enthusiastic grapevine to end in a shattered phone screen). Remember to please be on time for all classes; we do not let anyone in past the 10 minute mark, and if the class is on a waitlist, your spot may be given to someone else if you're not there when class begins. As always, these and all policies can be viewed on our website.
