As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, people are spending a whole lot of time at home. Everyone’s daily routine is changing as those who are lucky enough to be able to stay inside adjust to the WFH lifestyle. That also means a change in your workout routine, but with all this time within the confines of your abode, there’s never been a better time to try out new fitness classes.

Tons of instructors and studios are offering virtual classes on apps, streaming platforms and Instagram. All you really need is a mat (or a towel) and weights (or two water bottles). Whether you’re looking to add on a new monthly yoga subscription service to your repertoire or you want to join a free (!!) dance cardio class on Instagram every week, these are the instructors and studios to workout with at home right now.

Peloton Yoga Instructor @annagreenberg wants you to find your purpose in this week's Friday fitness tip: "In the midst of rapid change and uncertainty, doing things intentionally helps to keep me sane and grounded. When we do things with a sense of purpose, even just the purpose of doing the thing itself, there’s a satisfying feeling of ownership. It makes us active players in our lives instead of sitting on the sidelines just watching things happen. Yoga gave me the gift of understanding how empowering and uplifting intentional movement can be. A brief practice can put things into perspective even when they feel overwhelming or out of control. It’s not just yoga that does this though, any creative, physical, mindful, intentional practice like running, cycling, meditating, strength training, journaling, art-making, cooking, and more can give a much-needed sense of control & direction to our lives as well as filling them with a little bit more joy." #onepeloton
