    My introduction to S-Connection was an aerial yoga class. I was surprised by the range and extension I felt during and after the stretch. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to learn about other classes they offered. I had been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for 2 years and was looking for a way to supplement my martial arts training. The Partner Balance class offered what I was looking for. I signed up for 3 months and participated in the Student Showcase at the end of my session. The class was highly structured with a focus on learning correct technique and fundamentals. Corey and the instructional staff were professional, proficient and consistent about their instruction. I am grateful to have found this school of this caliber in Gainesville. I transitioned back to my regular training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after my 3 month session. I felt a marked increase in strength and flexibility upon my return to martial arts. The difference was 100% a result of the training at S-Connection. I look forward to training with Corey and her team again. If you are looking for a place to improve strength, flexibility, conditioning, balance or movement, S-Connection is an outstanding place to train. Go get some!
