South Africa is officially under lockdown for 21 days, which means that gyms and training centres are closed while we try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. But fitness freaks, fear not, because there are a number of ways to get fit for free without having to step foot out of your house, or even put on the appropriate workout attire. Here are five that will be keeping us moving over the next few weeks:

HOME WORKOUT PARTY! 😅💪 Last video is a blooper reel of Rigatoni desperately trying to get our attention 😂🐶 . Things are crazy right now… but at least we can let off some steam by working out at home! 🙌 . Honestly I LOVE working out at a gym. The environment motivates me. Working out at home, where my couch is sooooo close 😅 #keepingitreal… is tough. But once you get going and stay focused, you can get a KILLER workout at home. . THOUSANDS of you have joined the @fitbodyapp in the last 24 hrs from the free month we’re giving away and I can’t wait to all be doing the workouts together!!! What if we start a challenge to keep everyone motivated at home? 4 weeks? 12 weeks? Let me know what you think!! 😊 . No one should have to risk their health in order to get a workout in at the gym. If you’re starting to work out at home in order to keep you and your loved ones safe, I’m giving 1 month completely FREE to my @fitbodyapp. Here are the details of how to redeem! . ⭐️ Go to www.fitbodyapp.com ⭐️ Choose the 1 month membership ⭐️ Enter code DAJEITALIA at checkout That’s it! ❤️🙌 . Alright here’s one of three circuits we did yesterday! And I’m already SO SORE!! 😅 💪 Stiff-Leg Deadlift: 10 reps 💪 Squat + Press: 10 reps 💪 Squat Jump: 12 reps (I did regular squats since I’m preggo and doing only low-impact moves 😊) REPEAT 3x!! . #fitbodyapp #fbggirls #fbgcommunity

The founder of Fit Body App, personal trainer Anna Victoria, says that ‘no one should have to risk their health in order to get a workout in at the gym.’ Thus, she is gifting the world with a month of free online training as well as posting her at-home workouts to social media for us to follow along.

Want to use this lockdown time to hone your lotus position or downward dog skills? Same. And one US-based yogi is giving us the opportunity to do just that because you can sign up to do a 14-day free trial. You’ll be lean and limber before you know it. Namaste!

As coronavirus has evolved over the past few weeks, we’ve done what we can to support the health and safety of our teachers, students and local communities. To stay true to that, we’ve made the difficult decision to temporarily close our studios beginning March 16. We plan to resume classes March 30, but will reassess as we get closer and keep you updated. Although this will be challenging for all of us, we are confident in the strength of this community and know we can get through this together. If you have a monthly membership or are currently in Teacher Training, watch for an email update coming tomorrow with more information. What’s important to remember right now is that our yoga practice is always there for us – wherever we are. While studios are closed, you will have free access to a special collection of online classes through CorePower Yoga On Demand at http://corepoweryogaondemand.com/keep-up-your-practice. New C1, C2, Sculpt, HPF and even meditation classes will be available every week so you can keep up your practice from home. We truly hope this supports your health and wellbeing – please share with friends, family or anyone who needs yoga now more than ever. If you have questions or need anything, please email info@corepoweryoga.com. We are beyond grateful for this community and can’t wait until we can flow together in our studios again soon.

More yoga, I hear you say? CorePower Yoga recognises that this ancient practice is not only good for the body but good for the mind as well, which is sooooo necessary in these scary times. That’s why they are giving people access to online yoga and meditation resources for you to use during the lockdown.
