When a half dozen local fitness instructors found themselves out of work due to the current pandemic, they decided to take matters into their own hands. They created The Studio DC (now We are the Studio), a virtual fitness community.
Best of all, classes are just $3 each (payment is made via Venmo)!
Classes are offered in yoga, sculpt and HIIT (high intensity interval training). To book a class, Venmo the instructor $3 and they will comment on your transaction with the Zoom ID and password.
Classes start on weekdays at 8 a.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. If you work late on weekdays, the latest classes start at 7 p.m.
The Studio DC’s Yoga Flow classes are dubbed as “powerful yet accessible Vinyasa style yoga.” Sculpt classes are high-energy and challenging, with yoga and cardio combined with strength training. If you don’t have weights, instructors can provide body weight modifications instead. Teachers also can provide low impact options if needed. Finally, HIIT classes with the studio focus on getting your heart rate up through strength exercises and cardio.
Meet the vibrant group of instructors here.
$3/class, the class schedule can be found here.
*NOTE: The Studio is offering a FREE Yoga Sculpt class on Sunday June 7th at 2 p.m. EDT. The Zoom code is 84048754269.
