Barre has become one of the fastest-growing fitness trends over the last few years. Fortunately, barre does not require a large amount of space or a lot of equipment so it is perfect for an in-home workout. TDM offers a variety of different classes so you will always find a workout that can challenge you. Let’s face it, we are all missing the studio, the community, the sweat, and the sense of post-workout accomplishment. When you experience a TDM Zoom Class, you gain the experience of being in the studio working out with your peers.
Founder, Jill Dailey has been teaching this method for over 20 years, it is tried and true. Jill has experience in what works and what doesn’t work for a studio. What motivates you and what challenges you. Jill is always looking to evolve classes so they are fun, different and as always will offer you an amazing workout. Over the years, the owners have created strong communities with each other and their studios. They collaborate to offer the best experience in all studio locations.
TDM has always been focused on empowering individuals to become their most vibrant and authentic selves through a mind/body transformation within a compassionate and supportive community. While we cannot be in the studio together, there is still a personal connection and a sense of community via Zoom. Don’t worry, your instructor will watch your form and “call out” student efforts. And the best part is that you still get to see everyone to maintain and gain a sense of community during this time.
Tip: Text your friend and sign up for a Live Class together. Working out is always more fun when you have a friend to do it with. Hold each other accountable.
The Dailey Method offers ever-evolving workouts where you sculpt your body, sharpen your mind, gain motivation, and transform your attitude. Barre targets the main muscle groups that people have a hard time strengthening (core, upper body, thighs, etc.) leaving you feeling the total body workout.
The Dailey Method has developed a program that will work every single muscle in your body, while giving you a deeper understanding of how to move your body in alignment.
Where are you located? TDM offers favorable time slots across different time zones so you will find live streaming classes that work with your schedule.

Times are strange right now, as you all know. We’ve all heard the phrase “new normal” about a million times already, and all the while, things are still changing every day. If you asked me a few months ago what I’d be writing about right now, I would never have guessed I’d be interviewing someone about what it’s like to get a haircut.
Nonetheless, we’re all doing our best to band together and help each other out right now. You may have noticed salons and spas offering messages of support, video tutorials for DIY beauty, and now, waitlists and announcements of reopening their doors. But as we all know, this isn’t the “old normal” anymore, and there will be changes.
Here’s what you can expect to be different when you finally head back into the salon or spa:
As salons and spas begin to reopen, they’ll likely have to make changes due to new social distancing requirements. When you enter the space, you’ll probably see a complete rearrangement. Stations will be separated by at least six feet, and some might even be removed to allow for more space. Salons that don’t have that much space to spare are putting in temporary walls or partitions.
On top of that, there may be fewer appointments scheduled at the same time (and definitely no walk-ins) to limit the number of people in the building. Say goodbye to waiting rooms and lobbies—you’ll likely be asked to wait outside or in your car until the exact start time of your appointment to prevent too many people crowding the front.
In addition to their increase in space, salons and spas will likely up their cleaning standards and procedures. We surveyed active consumers on the Mindbody app and learned that among the many changes beauty and wellness businesses can make upon reopening, following rigorous sanitization guidelines is the most important. You’ll probably see social posts or confirmation emails that outline new cleaning protocols, and you may notice some signage hanging around the building to reassure that the areas have been disinfected. Employees, and even guests, will be wearing masks and/or gloves, and you may even get a spritz of hand sanitizer at the door. According to Salon 124 Group, getting these supplies is turning out to be one of the largest obstacles for reopening.
In between each appointment, they’ll thoroughly disinfect the area before the next client arrives. Not only that, but each time you move to a new station (like from shampoo to haircut), they may also wipe down the station as soon as you get up to make sure it’s clean for the next guest.
After a good haircut, we all want to check ourselves out. And now that we’re all more cautious of germs and bacteria, we also want to literally check ourselves out at the end of our appointments. Out of the various fitness, beauty, and wellness businesses on our platform, consumers feel most comfortable returning to hair salons, and 62.7% said hair cutting, coloring, styling, barbering, or blow-drying would be the first beauty service they book once restrictions are lifted. An extra, important layer of comfort can be added in the form of contactless payments.
Many salons and spas will likely be incorporating some sort of contactless checkout process to limit touch points. They may end up taking your payment information at check-in via text and removing the front desk, so you don’t have to interact with another person face-to-face.
All-in-all, you can expect changes—and lots of them. Whether it’s increased retail offerings, curbside pickups, virtual consultations, at-home appointments, or video tutorials, many salons and spas are getting creative with how they offer support to their clients. Above all, they want to help us feel beautiful, confident, and somewhat normal during this time—and for that, we’re so thankful.
