How It Works
3 / Get the Invite
I'll add you to the calendar invite with the Zoom info. For a one-off donation, I'll add you to the next event only. For a recurring donation (encouraged!), I'll add you to all future events.
When are the events?
Classes are on Tuesday evenings on Zoom, with recording sent to all donors the next day. Upcoming classes:
Tuesday, Sept. 19, 8p ET
Tuesday, Oct. 10, 8p ET
Tuesday, Nov. 21, 8p ET
Tuesday, Dec. 19, 8p ET
What gear do I need?
All you need is a mat, some water, and a comfortable space. If you have a hard floor, you might want two mats, or a beach towel on top of your mat, for a little extra cushioning. Pets are very welcome.
What is body-neutral Pilates?
Basically, no diet/weight/body-shape-and-size talk. My focus is 100% on functional fitness and feeling good. Full disclosure: I am a thin, white cis woman teaching through an inclusive, body-neutral lens.
I want to join live, but I need my privacy.
It's fine to keep your camera off (though if you'd like to keep it on, it's always nice to see friendly faces!). If you need to use a Zoom display name other than your real name, just let me know in advance so I can admit you to the room.
How much money have you raised so far?
Since July 2022, we have collectively donated more than $10,000 to abortion funds!
What if I can't make it to the event but still want to participate?
I record each class and will send a link to the video shortly afterwards to all who donated. (Even if you attend "live," you'll still get the video.)
What if I've never done Pilates?
No experience necessary. I'll be teaching at a beginner level and offering plenty of modifications and variations. I know Pilates can sometimes seem intimidating, but this is a very friendly space (and breaks are encouraged!).
What about scary Zoom trolls?
I almost always have a friend standing by to admit people to the Zoom room (cross-checking their names with our RSVP list), monitor the chat, and take care of any funny business. Which has never happened (so far)!
