Yoga can be so helpful to maintaining peace of mind in stressful times.
Exercise and connecting with friends is can be a challenge while practicing social isolation. However we've found a great way to help you do both!

Here's what people are saying about our private and small group sessions via zoom:
Zoom Pilates with jo was a massive win. As a health care worker I am becoming increasingly aware of the need to practice intentional social distancing, but I also feel my stress levels building. Pilates is an essential part of my self care, for both the mind and body, so being able to continue it in a safe, fun and effective way was a huge relief. Having an awesome group of friends to zoom with is also helpful! Thanks jo!
In these uncertain times we are all trying our best to protect our elderly and vulnerable and this included our first video conference pilates class! I was a bit worried as Jo normally keeps a beady eye on me as I have some medical issues we are working through but I shouldn't have been. She was able to see me clearly and give excellent instruction even though I was using the Zoom app on my phone. It was easy to set up and I still felt a great benefit from the class. I had to be a bit creative with some of the equipment but it turns out jars of passata make great hand weights! Thanks Jo for thinking outside the box and making sure I can still 'attend' my class without placing anyone at risk.
If you are unfamiliar with zoom, don't worry, it's really easy!
I wrote a blog post explaining how it works:
How to use Zoom for our Live Online Yoga and Pilates Classes
Do I need any prior yoga or pilates experience?
Not at all! This practice is suitable for all levels and a great place to start.
I'm quite experienced - will there still be options to challenge me?
Yes! The beauty of the pilates props is how adaptable they are - even if have a very established movement practice I will be able to give you challenging variations.
I'm injured - is it ok to practice?
As long as you have your doctors approval and are able to listen to your body and ask for advice as as necessary this is a great class to work with any injuries. I can help support you through your rehabilitation and am happy to liaise with your physiotherapist as necessary.
