Stay Warm, Stay Fit at BEBOP Studio in Saguache

Hula classes with Caroline Irwin and martial arts workouts with Tom Reynolds are offered on a regular basis at various times.   Call Caroline at 719-850-0051 for a current class schedule.

The BEFit program, a nonprofit project of Saguache Works, has operated for three years with generous support from the Saguache County Commissioners.   Due to budget constraints, and multiple needs around the county, this year’s funding has been significantly reduced.

Saguache Works, nevertheless, remains committed to providing these services free of charge.  They will, however, be seeking donations from those who can afford to help support our instructors and to defray the cost of space and materials.

For more information about their programs, please call 719-655-0216.
