Dailey Gentle with Kia
Kia is a wonderful instructor. I was very appreciative of this class and all the guidance that Kia provided, as well as her descriptions in general. I felt very attended to, and I got the sense that everyone in the class also enjoyed her instruction style and ability to see when modifications or more direction would be helpful. This was exactly the type of movement to my day that I prefer, with understanding of the point of different motions and the ability to work at the level I want. I liked the IT band stretching at the end also, which a PT recommended to me after I dislocated my patella but that I rarely do. :) Thank you.

I enjoyed the class with Natalie. Thank you!
Dailey Gentle with Deborah
This class is a much better pace for new students to barre type exercises. The instructor was kind and went around to help each person as needed. It’s good to ask questions and ask for assistance to make sure you’re posture/position/movement is correct. :)).

Kia is great
Dailey Gentle with Kia
This was a great class as I am recovering from some weirdly intense lower back spasms (I also brought my never-exercises husband along, and it was good for him too!). Its very choose-your-own-adventure in terms of modifications, and while definitely easier than a normal Dailey but still some opportunities to level up a bit. Kia was very attentive to form and everyones limitations. We will he back!
Dailey Gentle with Natalie
This class is great if you have an injury or are just getting back into exercise! If youve attended a barre class before if recommend skipping this level and going straight to Dailey Barre instead!

Dailey Gentle with Susannah
Good class!
Dailey Gentle with Shawn
Shawn was a very caring and fantastic teacher. I needed modifications during the class to accommodate my injured knee, and the alternate exercises she came up with worked me just as hard as the regular routine.

Great class!
Dailey Gentle with Natalie
It may be called "Gentle", but that just means "less cardio"- you might not break a sweat, but if you focus on your form and muscles, you'll feel it the next day!

Dailey Gentle with Kia
Gentle is the perfect thing for Sunday mornings- more mellow, smaller and more personal than other Dailey classes. Kia is cheerful, helpful, a good teacher, and had great music.
Dailey Gentle with Susannah
They say "gentle", but this was the perfect supportive workout for someone who's trying to get back into shape. The class was small, and Susannah was able to give personal attention and adjustment/modifications to everyone!
Dailey Gentle with Mimi
I am a very beginner and the teacher made me feel so comfortable and allowed me to feel I could push myself- with out killing myself
