Pre-payment of $85 is required. Cost includes materials and a babysitting bag. A confirmation letter will be sent with class time, date location and parking instructions upon receipt of your form and payment. Classes are held at HealthwoRx, Baptist Health Lexington's Fitness and Wellness Center, located at Lexington Green Mall.
