Cathleen Holt, certified childbirth educator and doula offers classes in the Bradley method of natural childbirth. The Bradley method emphasizes that birth is a natural process: mothers are encouraged to trust their body and focus on diet and exercise throughout pregnancy; and it teaches couples to manage labor through deep breathing and the support of a partner or labor coach.

We are pleased to be offering capoeira classes at the studio through the Capoeira Academy of Charleston with Kevin Johnson.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance,acrobatics, and music.It was developed in Brazil at the beginning of the 16th century and is known for its quick and complex maneuvers, predominantly using power, speed, and leverage across a wide variety of kicks, spins, and other techniques.
The most widely accepted origin of the word capoeira comes from the Tupi words ka'a ("jungle") e pûer ("it was"), referring to the areas of low vegetation in the Brazilian interior where fugitive slaves would hide. A practitioner of the art is called a capoeirista.
