Common questions answered (Spring, 2021)

Dear Community ,
I hope you, your family and friends are well as we start a new week. It is hard to believe that June is right around the corner!
My husband and I have been lucky enough to travel some lately. We're enjoying the outdoors, hiking, biking and the Spring temps and greenery of the east coast of the US. I hope you're able to get outside, move and breathe this week. Remember, even just five minutes counts to help you feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.
In this newsletter, I'd like to share with you some assumptions people have made about my streaming/on demand site, and set the record straight (!) about those assumptions.
First, in the past 3 years since I started my streaming/on demand site, I've been asked many questions about how the site works and who its good for. Some assumptions I've heard are the following:
1. "I have to be tech savvy to use a site like this"
2. "I need a quiet place, uninterrupted, and more time to be able to practice on my own, at home"
3. "I have to have a lot more experience in order to be able to follow a video online"
Here are my responses to the above:
1. Yes, you do need SOME tech ability to use my site, but if you're reading this newsletter and have internet, you're already tech savvy enough. And if you use any streaming service like Netflix, you'll be able to navigate the site in your sleep. It works just like Netflix!
2. Let's get real. There is rarely, if ever, a perfect time for anything. There will always be errands to run, the kitchen to clean, bills to pay, etc. It does take some discipline to stop, roll out your mat or grab your weights and take time to move and breathe. That is a fact. BUT, know that we all struggle with making time for self care practices, and if you even just get in five to ten minutes, those moments count and help you become healthier.
3. You don't need a ton of yoga, Pilates or fitness experience to use the site. There are videos on the site for varied levels, body types, and levels of experience. The video's descriptions are clear and lay out for you what level it is for, what the focus will be, and any props you'll need.
So, if you're not a member, consider checking out the site. Click below. There are yoga, Pilates, fitness and movement therapy classes that range from absolute beginner, to advanced, 10 minutes to 90 minutes. New videos are added every month.
