Your local gym or yoga studio might be out of commission for now, but have you checked their website? Odds are that they’re probably offering online classes instead (and if not, you can find a full list of online workout classes here). Call mom before class starts to roll out your mats and warm up together, stay on FaceTime during the class, then check in again after you're done.
