Here we are in 2021 and COVID is still sweeping the nation and the world. As we try to stay safe, keep our families, friends, coworkers, and strangers safe, while facing a time of uncertainty and high anxiety – I wanted to put together a short list of FREE learning resources to help you enjoy your time at home.

At the end of the course, if you want a certificate, that’s the only thing you need to pay for.
If you know me, you already know I am a huge fan of Yoga with Adriene! She just put out a free 30-day yoga course with most sessions being shorter than 30 mins. She’ll walk you through poses with a huge focus on breathing and listening to your body – something we all need right now.
