Aventura, FL / APR 16-19, 2016
Experienced convention attendees tell us that their spouse is a valuable asset in helping them build essential industry relationships. In many cases, the socializing among spouses at BSA networking and social events leads to additional personal contacts among convention attendees. BSA has planned a number of convention activities to include spouses/companions. All of the social and leisure events on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday include spouses and companions.
All leisure activities have a minimum participation requirement and are subject to cancellation. If a cancellation occurs, attendees will be notified via email ahead of time.
This class is geared more to beginners and is based on the ancient Indian form of movement that promotes balance, flexibility, strengthen and relaxation through various postures and breathing techniques. Bare feet, all levels. Registration fee is $20.00.
