You’ve probably been trying some home workouts you can do to keep active and not feel like a total couch potato lately. Doing dance aerobics classes during the quarantine has brought back memories of me in my 20’s having “living room dance parties” with my friends and tons of alcohol having so much fun not caring about anything. Anyway, here’s a few I’ve done that are great to get that blood flowing and put a smile on your face.
Follow along to the choreographed moves or do your own thang with instructor Emilia. No judgment or shame here, PonySweat provides a message of inclusivity and body-positivity. It’s all about doing moves that make your body feel good.
Expect to hear music from the likes of Peaches, the Cure, Santigold, Nine Inch Nails, Robyn, Prince, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cyndi Lauper, Bikini Kill and Missy Elliott to name a few.
1 Hour Classes offered via Zoom for $5. Sign up on their website: https://ponysweataerobics.com/live-stream-class
