With workouts ranging from Tabata to Twerk Fitness now available on YouTube, why not consider online Pilates instead? It has been shown to boost immunity as well as improving posture, joint mobility and core stability. Pilates exercises also help to make your lymphatic and respiratory systems more efficient and these are crucial to your immune system.

Keeping to a schedule is recommended during this time of self-isolation, and if you are alone, joining an online group class can help you stay connected and feel part of a community!
