Things are a-changing - but it's all good - kinda!

Updated: Jun 22, 2022

This is the hard part for me. My husband and I are making some big positive lifestyle changes. I left my public service job after 11 years and sold our newly purchased Victoria house so we can live the life that we want. We are moving out of province to an acreage outside of Saskatoon. Yup! We are craving space and space we will get. The hard part? Leaving my amazing SHiNE tribe in Victoria!

But wait!

I'll continue running UpBeat Fitness from a distance and will hand over the classes for Nathalie to teach. Nathalie will be teaching all 3 classes a week starting Thursday, July 7th! She has already shown she has what it takes to be a phenomenal dance fitness instructor and we are so lucky to have her. I know you will absolutely enjoy taking her classes. The Victoria tribe will carry on with Nathalie and I'll make sure to come back once in a while to give her some time off and teach in person.

But wait, there's more!

Once we settle in our new home, I will be offering online SHiNE classes (and maybe some barre express classes - woot woot!) Those will be included in your monthly plans and for anyone in Victoria, Saskatoon, or across the globe for that matter, to access.

And yes, there's more!

I will also be shopping around for studios in Saskatoon to rent and offer in-person SHiNE classes in the Fall. It's a new adventure and I'm happy that I have Nathalie to take on the reigns here in Victoria and for the opportunities online and in 'Stoon!

All in all, I will miss you sooooooooooooo much. Our SHiNE classes are my happy place so this is a bittersweet move for me. Hope to see you in my last classes. I will be teaching Tuesdays and Thursdays until my birthday on Tuesday, July 5th. It's coming so soon! Come on out and SHiNE with me for the next 2 weeks and let's celebrate new beginnings on July 5th!

Love you all. You have made me a very happy SHiNE instructor and person in general.



Your UpBeat Fitness instructors Anne-Marie & Nathalie
