As you have probably heard by now, the order for the Bay Area to shelter-in-place has been extended through May 3rd. That means for now, our target reopening date for in-studio classes is Monday, May 4th, so hopefully May the 4th be with us! We got loads more than just bad Star Wars puns, so please read on for the latest Flex news, and if you haven’t tried one of our nifty online classes that have been garnering great reviews, join in the fun! 🙂
We miss you! We hope you are staying healthy and calm, and actively taking steps toward wellness. While Flex’s usual facilities may be off limits right now, we’ve still a lot of encouragement for you! Try and move your body every day even if for just a short walk or a quick morning stretch session. Although it may be stormy this weekend, it looks like spring is truly here next week with some really nice sunny and warm days, so we’re going to suggest some time outside in the sun (still following social distancing measures, of course). It can also help to practice mindful eating, really being aware of what you are giving your body, and trying to make food choices that nourish rather than just placate. Set aside a few minutes at the end of your day to meditate or write in a gratitude journal. There is still so much to be thankful for, and sometimes it takes just a small shift in awareness to notice. Take notice of your emotional state, try not to judge yourself and be compassionate towards yourself (and others), and accept that you may go through emotions of frustration, anxiety, or grief. We – and your fellow FlexFam – are here for you, we love you, and we promise we are doing whatever it takes to reopen stronger and better than ever. We can’t wait to be FLEXing our limits in our usual style!
Until then, we’ve been getting a really positive response to our Flex ONLINE program of virtual classes. In order to encourage everyone to try our online offerings, we are running a flash sale promotion through Sunday 3/29. For more details on the sale and other virtual events, please click here.
We hope you are all staying healthy and calm during this crazy and uncertain time. We first would like to say from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to those of you who have the means and goodwill to keep your memberships active. It means the world to us! The start of this week had us needing to take a couple deep breaths, regroup, and plan. And plan, we did! We are pretty excited to announce the online program we are rolling out, and can’t wait to sweat, roll, pulse, and OM with you from a little farther away! We are still on for paint night in April, as well as the Flex clothing swap, keeping in mind that we may need to adjust dates as we go along. We miss you already, fam, and hope you are staying healthy and calm. 💚 Take a minute to read all the essential details for your virtual FlexFam fix! Did we mention ONLINE Classes!?
