Thanks to social distancing and the movement control order, chances are you’ve seen a fair share of yoga and workout videos from fitness influencers and friends alike. Whether you have been leading an active lifestyle or finally convinced yourself to break a sweat, there’s no better time than now to get that body moving.

Not only will exercising release “feel good” endorphins and reduce cortisol levels to help manage stress and anxiety (which we’re all probably experiencing right now), it’s also a healthy and productive way to spend your self-isolation.

Take your pick to follow along at home, from Chris Hemsworth’s Thor-approved drills to Venus Williams’ beginner-friendly workouts.

Follow her on Instagram (@ashleygraham) to watch her livestreams and stay updated.
