WE CELEBRATE ALL EFFORT
Success in my classes means you showed up and did what you could. If you need to lay on your couch or bed and join us for only five minutes, that's is amazing because giving it a try even when your body is rebelling is the hardest exercise of all.
If you don't want your video on, turn it off. Classes are never recorded.

GROUP FITNESS CLASSES
Do you find yourself a little bit freaked out about the idea of joining an online group fitness class? If so, you are not alone. I was frustrated by how mainstream group fitness classes promoted the pursuit of unattainable air-brushed bikini bodies and called the rest of us beginners, physical rehabbers, obese, or seniors. It's embarrassing and not motivating whatsoever. They completely missed the fact that most of us have been in and out of fitness our entire lives. We are not beginners, we've just had barriers that have caused our physical bodies to not be able to keep up with our other amazing talents and life priorities. We need a space where doing our best doesn't feel like a failure. We need a place that help us get jazzed about our progress. We need a place that will never tell us our progress is small or our effort is insignificant. We need a space where every effort we make is celebrated because darn it, every effort is a huge effort. This is why I started teaching online group fitness in 2020.
If you have chronic illnesses you'll find these classes are a breath of fresh air. I encourage everyone to come as they are. Seriously, if you are having a terrible pain day, come to our group fitness class, don't put yourself on video and just to the few exercises your body will allow you to that day. You might be surprised by what you are able to do with the energy of other humans online. Here's a tip; sign up for the monthly unlimited package. With the unlimited group fitness package you can sign up for all classes and just do the bits and pieces your body will allow you to during each class. It's an amazing value.
My Gentle Movement class is designed for people who want to move their body without triggering other health issues such as chronic illnesses or fibromyalgia.
I also offer voice-only classes. In these sessions everyone has their video cameras off, even the instructor. The inspiration for this originally came as a way to serve our blind clients better but they are open to everyone regardless of their vision. I've found that many people love having a class where there is absolutely zero pressure whatsoever to have a camera on.
I don't record classes. When I was a student I detested the idea of me and my messy living room being recorded. Plus, recording doesn't fit with my mission to make this a positive and comfortable space for all.
We appreciate the importance of households and connections. This is why minors (up to age 18) can join for free when in attendance with an adult.
