6 Online Platforms to Keep You Moving & Smiling

5 online classes to keep you moving and smiling

Happy New Year, Movers!

The last couple of months have been so varied. Since my last post in September, I was actually swamped with working in the studios; then I went to California for the holidays; now I’m back in London and house-bound!

With that said, I want to share what’s been helping me stay sane, mobile, and happy during London’s lockdown #3. We all know it’s easy to forget about our body and mind, so check out these wonderful online classes.


GAGA PEOPLE/DANCERS – TEL AVIV | BERLIN | LONDON

Natalia Iwaniec – Gaga Teacher
I quickly learned that I love starting the week with a Gaga class on Monday mornings. Since these classes have been online, they’re only operating as 30-minute classes but not to worry, you will still get the full benefits of a Gaga class – fluid, three-dimensional, bone shaking, wild, and soft movements. You’ll also get a good sweat!

LITTLE YOGA SPACE – LISBON

Katrin Heuser & Arina Holm Joensen – Founders of LYS
I’ve just taken Katrin’s Thai Yoga Massage Intro Workshop last Sunday and it was such a treat! We spoke about energy, intention, and attention. An important theme as most of us are mainly at home or, perhaps, working harder than ever. Kat’s studio offers many classes including yoga, pilates, online retreats, and much more.

LINES DANCE CENTER – SAN FRANCISCO

Teachers Left to Right: LeeWei Chao; Adji Cissoko; Maurya Kerr; Daiane Lopes da Silva
These classes are more than Ballet. Forget what you know and experience a dynamic and full bodied approach to the Classical form. Being that LINES Dance Center is one my former stomping grounds, having access some of the most knowledgeable teachers on the West Coast is something everyone should also take advantage.

BAEFIT – LONDON

Helena Dowling – Personal Trainer & Body Coach, Dancer, Actor
Oh yes. Helena’s classes are the ultimate ‘spirit lift’. Her classes range from HIIT to Primal Pilates – with and without weights. This working performer gets you working out through her ecstatic personality. I’ve done these classes during the first national lockdown and boy did I see a difference in my body. Open to all levels.
First class free! Just mention The Movement Blog 🙂

MINDWALK YOGA – VIRTUAL

Zakiya Bishton – Founder
I came across Zakiya’s Instagram a little while ago when she was due to cover one of my classes while I was away. Zakiya’s social enterprise and virtual-only studio has quite a lot to offer. From free classes to wellness retreats for Black women – the main vibe is about relieving stress, anxiety, and trauma. I’m sure we can all get on board with that!

STRONG LIKE A MUTHA – GLASGOW

Lyndsey Roberts – Founder of SLAM, Dancer, Coach, Mother
I’ve been following my former colleague, Lyndsey (from London Contemporary Dance School) from afar. From the opening of her fully equipped studio to the comprehensive online platform she’s today. From pre-natal classes to strength, nutrition, and overall body positivity, this is a ‘one-stop-shop’ for every body.
