Lori Rogers I’ve been teaching OULA Fitness formats for 5 years. I teach our OULA Dance format and our OULA Power strength and conditioning classes. OULA IS A HIGH-ENERGY, EASY TO LEARN, CALORIE BURNING, CRAZY-FUN DANCE WORKOUT TO TOP 40 HITS. CLASSES ARE ONE EPIC HOUR OF SWEAT, JOY, AND TOTAL INSPIRATION! OULA IS DANCEMANIA FOR THE SOUL.
Every person, every human wants & has a deep desire to feel & be connected. It is in connection we are seen, heard, felt, loved. The place of connection is where trust is built and freedom is allowed. It is here in the individual that creativity, confidence & growth expand. OULA is connection, with self & others. OULA is community.
Because our focus is on “how you feel” rather than “how you look,” our participants experience the freedom of a non-judgement (of self and of others) environment and community, rather than competition. Our approach to fitness is incredibly refreshing and healthy in the traditionally image-obsessed industry. Our participants experience transformation from the inside out, and embrace our philosophy that when you feel good, you look amazing
