Both weekly calls take place at a time and day of the week voted on by the group, so they suit your schedule. Plus you receive a recording of the session if you miss it or wish to repeat it on your own.
YES! I have years of experience working with ALL different levels of experience, injuries, and limitations. I’ve worked one-on-one with someone with an above-the-knee leg amputation, an expecting Mom on her due date, and people well into their eighties and as young as their teens.
It is quite literally MY JOB to create a program you can succeed at and grow through. I promise to meet you where you are and focus on getting you where YOU want to go (not to some imaginary perfect or ideal physique the world says you should have).
Also, keep in mind, that your past results have NOTHING to do with your future outcomes. When it comes to whether or not you will succeed at this, any past failures you may have experienced are not really relevant.
Each group votes on call times, so they work for your schedule. If you miss a call, you can catch up with the recording.
I can’t promise specific outcomes (no one can), because we’re all human and every person is different. However, as long as you stay committed to your program, I am committed to you. I will offer as much additional coaching as you need for free, if you do not feel that you are seeing benefits from your program.
No problem! We will have address any and all tech issues before the program even starts. I am also happy to walk you through any of the apps we use for communication. I strive to make sure that tech issues never stand between you and a great workout.
You do need to have decent-quality internet and a laptop with webcam or a smartphone. (Most U.S. home internet is perfectly fine! If you are trying to workout on a coffee shop’s WiFi, we might have problems.) For space and equipment, all you need is enough space to roll out a yoga mat and reach your arms out to the sides! The equipment I use is minimal (<$50 and takes up less space than a grocery tote), and I will tell you what you need when you start. This can be purchased through me or independently.
No. I am happy to make common sense nutrition suggestions and/or to help you use yoga to observe and work on your mindset around food or weight. However, I am not a qualified nutritionist or dietitian. I am happy to recommend someone who can work with you digitally, though.
First, you should always have clearance from your doctor before starting any fitness program. That said, I am happy to consult with your physician or any other practitioner you work with medically to discuss any concerns he/she may have. Assuming you are cleared for light exercise, I am delighted (in fact, it is my expertise) to work within the constraints of your physical abilities and to dynamically modify your program as your condition changes.
Generally speaking, no. Our work together is different from a regular gym or trainer in that: 1. You can take me with you anywhere! 2. My approach to fitness considers the whole person and their real life. I strive to make your programs work with your life, whether that means modifying around injury or illness, travel, or caretaking for a family member. and 3. You are part of a group. Your group moves through the program together, so I am not able to accommodate holding your membership. That said, if there are extenuating circumstances, I am human and I’m happy to discuss arrangements we can mutually agree on. (See below for additional information on pregnancy.)
I believe that we can do valuable work together under almost any physical conditions. I strongly encourage you to maintain your membership through the prenatal period, and use our time together to learn about your changing body and stay connected to it. I am able to modify workouts for pregnancy.
That said, you and your medical provider have the ultimate say in if or when movement practices are appropriate. If you wish, you may freeze your membership for up to 2 months around the birth of a child or loss of pregnancy.
No! You are grandfathered into the price you pay now (either monthly or annually) for as long as you remain a member continuously.
