Nowadays, it’s easy to feel like your fitness routine has gone out the window. Luckily, the UC Davis Activities and Recreation Center is offering online workout classes through Aggies at Home. Featuring a variety of classes that include yoga, Pilates, cardio and mediation, there’s something for everyone, no matter your skill level. Plus, the classes are on Facebook Live so they’re free and easy to access from anywhere.


For those missing the ARC’s classes, the online versions can be just as good as the real thing. During the “All Levels Yoga” class with instructor Sarah Gould, she walks the viewers through a stretching routine to warm up. She then goes into the yoga flows; viewers only need a space to practice and a Facebook account in order to follow along.

Gould talks the viewers through all the positions, just like an in-person class. And she offers all the encouragement you need as you attempt unfamiliar yoga poses.

The class is an hour long, and the Facebook Live format makes it easy to pop into a class to get a quick workout. They also can be accessed on the UC Davis Campus Recreation page if you happen to miss the class when it’s live.

Currently, Aggies at Home offers Vinyasa Yoga every day, alongside Mediative Movement, Mat Pilates, Cardio/Strength Fusion, Gentle Yoga, and All Levels Yoga.
