Your Virtual Fitness and Wellness Guide During COVID-19

It is an interesting time for everyone, with the COVID-19 pandemic bringing unexpected and drastic changes to our lives.

Terms and actions such as ‘social distancing’ and ‘isolation’ have been popping out – and for good reason. By staying at home and keeping yourself physically far from others, you are making it more difficult for the virus to spread. This helps flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak.

However, that doesn’t mean our fitness and wellness routines should take a backseat. Here are some ways to keep the mind and body fit at the comfort of your home:

For those who need to practice their vinyasa, or just stretch:

Malaysian studio The Flow released Flow From Home, a specially curated program that will leave you feeling strong, resilient and flexible – both in body and mind – with a series of classes curated by all the instructors at The Flow.

You’ll receive 34 virtual classes (45 minutes each) delivered to you daily. Expect progressive tutorials, tips as well as tricks to elevate your practice, and gain access to an exclusive community of practitioners and instructors who will support you during this trying times.

There are also several yoga centres and instructors who are offering virtual classes. Some of them are complimentary, while others are operating via a donation basis (where the funds go straight to the teacher). Some suggestions are Omology, Space Studio and Yoga Room.

For cardio lovers:

Boutique gyms such as Aloha Cycle Club, Ministry Of Burn and MotionLab are known for their HIIT and cardio workouts. They’ve brought some of their popular classes online via their Instagram profile or Zoom.

Alternatively, YouTubers like Emi Wong and Chris Heria have several workout videos available on their channel. The best part? No equipment needed.

For those who want to look like Thor:

Centr Co-founder, Chris Hemsworth, announced that the app will be available for free to new members and will stay free for six weeks.

Look forward to celebrity-endorsed workouts, meditation practices and nutritional information (as well as seeing how the God of Thunder himself trains) on the app.

For those who want to practice mindfulness:

Moon & Soul is known for their Tarot Card Reading, Reiki Energy Healing, Meditation, Sound Healing, Dance and Movement therapy, Inner Child Healing, Women’s Circles and much more.

During this time where most places are in movement control, the Malaysian studio is offering some virtual yoga and guided meditation sessions.

Dian Lee is hosting calming meditation and sound bath sessions on her IG live a few nights per week. It’s a great opportunity for you relax, re-centre and learn more about these methods.

For everything, in one place:

To help keep their members active at home and support our partners around the world, Classpass now has livestream classes on their app.

In addition, the fitness platform has released a new feature to enable fitness and wellness partners to offer live-streamed classes through the ClassPass app and website. From now till 1 June 2020, one hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to the studios and fitness instructors who are unable to host in-person classes due to COVID-19.

Lululemon has planned a series of collaborations with their ambassadors – who are also some of the most popular fitness enthusiasts in town – centred on fitness and wellbeing. Whether it is a 30-minute HIIT session or learning about better movements, there is bound to be something for everyone.
