Sweat It Out
In the midst of COVID-19, everyone is fearful of the COVID 15 — or the extra pounds we might put on while social distancing in self-quarantine (and ordering all that takeout to help support local restaurants).
As San Antonio prepares to shelter in place, some of our favorite San Antonio studios and workout gurus are going digital, offering classes via livestream and other online methods. Some require membership and others are free, but now is definitely the time to explore all the get-fit options from the comfort of your own home.
Black Swan Yoga
The San Antonio-based yoga studio is offering free daily live feeds beginning at 6 am, meaning you can get your downward dog on anytime of day. The schedule changes daily and users can donate directly to teachers.
Half Moon Power Yoga
Members can choose from a variety of on-demand classes on HMPY's YouTube channel and scheduled Zoom classes, while everyone can flow for free on Facebook and Instagram. Call 210-390-4386 if you need assistance with scheduling.
The Missions hike took place on March 11, but you can now also download the "musical trip into mindfulness" to enjoy on your own schedule, in your own natural setting. The 20-minute sample is free, with the option to purchase longer walks.
Dance Center of San Antonio
Registration for online classes is required to receive feedback from instructors, but parents and siblings are welcome to live out their ballet dreams alongside the students.
For the first time ever, Camp Gladiator is launching #HustleFromHome — free, live at-home workouts. These are available to the public and CG members on Camp Gladiator's Facebook page, streaming Monday-Friday, three times a day at 5:30 am, 8 am, and 5:30 pm CT, as well as on Saturdays at 8 am. Each session is led by one of CG's certified personal trainers and requires little to no equipment (mats, dumbbells). Can't make it? The video workouts can be accessed any time of day here.
The gym has gone online, with Vimeo classes you can watch at any time (bonus points if you already own a kettlebell).
Owner Mary Kay Sheeran is putting new workouts on YouTube and Instagram, with donations being accepted on Venmo @marykay-sheeran.
