Class Information

Practicing at Home

Please make sure you have plenty of space to practice safely and comfortably. Take a rest or a water break any time you need one.  If you are practicing yoga or pilates please back out of any postures that bring you pain or discomfort, take a rest and come back to the class when you are ready.  Your teacher will give you any additional instructions or advice at the start of your Zoom.
