Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

When are all the classes?


All classes are held at 12:05 pm EST and end at 1:00 pm EST. A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to every month you have subscribed for.




What if I want to start in the middle of the month?


No problem! Simply specify the month you are wanting to sign up for at checkout and we will email you the access information upon completion of the order. Please note if you sign up in the middle of a month, there is no prorate. For example if you signup on March 15th for the month of March, you will gain access to the remaining classes for the month of March.




How does this work?


After you signup for either one month subscription or Subscribe&Save 5% option, you will receive a confirmation email. A couple days prior to each new month I send out an email with a Zoom link and class instructions for that month. All classes occur on a weekday where the Zoom room opens at 12:00pm EST and class begins at 12:05pm EST. This 5 minutes is to allow for questions and to get settled. All participants will be muted to start but are welcome and encouraged to unmute if you have a question. This is the beauty of a live class!




Will my screen by visible to others?


That is your choice! You can decide to keep you video feed on or turn it off. About 70% of people turn it off during the exercise portion of class and turn it on at the beginning and end of class to “check in”. Those folks who keep their screen on say that it’s helpful for visual feedback and for accountability.




Can I join a class late or leave early?


Absolutely! There is no strict opening or closing of class. Jessica’s belief is that we are all doing the best that we can and she doesn’t want you to miss out on taking a class because a meeting ran late. You can come and go as you please. If you can’t make it until 12:15, that is fine. 12:30 is fine too. We ask for your patience when being granted access into the class from the waiting room, as she might be upside down in a downward dog and need to slither out of it! Please be mindful that if you miss the warm up, you should prep your body and do some stretching on your own before jumping into intense content.




Will this class be recorded? Can I record the class?


Yes! The class will be recorded and as a subscriber you will have access to a private page that allows you to view the recording at your convenience. Classes are available online for 7 days following the live class.




Can I pay for individual classes since I only want to take one?


This is a subscription service that allows full access to the classes all month long. We do not offer a per class purchase. The schedule is designed to hit all of the pillars of fitness, therefore taking 5 classes/week you are getting a well rounded workout schedule.




Is there music?


No. Due to Zoom limitations at this time, the instructor can not play music. That said, participants are muted and you can rock on to the playlist of your choice during the workout!




What equipment will I need?


While each class is a little different, there are some basic items that would be helpful to have. 1. A yoga mat or flooring (rug or carpeting) is helpful for all classes. 2. A Chair and hand weights, 3 lbs or under for Barre classes (canned food or wine bottles work well as substitutes if you don’t have access to hand weights). 3. Dumbells (gallon of water, larger detergent containers also work) and tubing for conditioning. Optional Items that can be helpful:

  • 1 or 2 yoga blocks (a stack of sturdy books also work)
  • A blanket or towel
  • A yoga strap (belt or scarf also work)
Some other recommended items: Kettlebell 3lb Handweights Check out my favorite gear page to see where you can purchase all these items. Knowing what weight size to use: As a general rule, between 5-15 pounds can be an appropriate weight for Conditioning. Here’s an easy test to see what weight you should purchase: Choose a weight that you feel comfortable with ( you can grab something around the house to do this for the test – just weigh it to see what the load is – a gallon of milk, box of kitty litter). If you can do 10-15 repetitions easily and with good form, it’s time to increase the load. Note that you may need a couple of choices of weights as different exercises and muscles may need to be loaded more or less.




What is the weekly schedule?


Classes are held every Monday through Friday. If there happens to be a day off in any month, that will be posted in the calendar in advance. Classes are always held at 12:05 pm EST (with the Zoom room opening at 12:00pm EST) and end at 1:00 pm EST. There are no classes on Saturdays and Sundays.




Is one-on-one time available?


Jessica is available a few minutes before every class to chat about fitness – or life, if you prefer. This is also a great time to make a special request, such as focusing on hips or shoulders. If on-going you are looking to book additional private sessions with Jessica, send her an email.




What makes Jessica different from other instructors?


Jessica has experience teaching multiple modalities, but does so under her umbrella as a certified personal trainer. As such, there is always a focus on alignment and posture. She also makes an effort to offer modifications and various levels for every exercise so that each participant can rev up or down each exercise or posture. Having a live class is fun and you never know what is going to happen or who is going to say what! It’s a completely different experience than taking a choreographed, edited, structured class. Be prepared to laugh.




Do you offer free classes?


We do! The last day of every month we open the class up to anyone interested in participating. You can view the calendar here. Want to be emailed about the next free class? Send us an email and let us know.




Can I stop if I choose Subscribe&Save?


Yes! Subscribe & Save is great because not only will you save 5% on your membership every month, it's hassle free where your payment will be automatically made each month! However, should you wish to stop the auto-payments, simply notify us by email and we will stop your auto-payments for the next upcoming month. We do not refund partial months.




What size weights should I use?


As a general rule, between 5-15 pounds can be an appropriate weight for conditioning. Here’s an easy test to see what weight you should use: Choose a weight that you feel comfortable with ( you can grab something around the house to do this for the test – just weigh it to see what the load is – a gallon of milk, box of kitty litter).
