faq: frequently asked questions

What is a Subscription?

A subscription is an agreement with a recurring monthly payment that offers movement classes and well-being events with necessary support for accomplishing personal goals.

Your monthly obligation is revokable upon request. Stripe is the H&M service of choice.

What is the cost of a Subscription?

Total Access offers two opportunities to participate. The social interaction comes with the regularly scheduled virtual life classes. When schedule doesn’t permit live interaction, choose a video from the library.

Access to the YouTube based Video Library playlist offers a dynamic selection of movement classes of varying degrees and types (yoga, Pilates, barre, fitness walk). The videos periodically rotate to offer different experiences.

Access to the Zoom based virtual live classes and special events offers freedom from any location.

Total Access costs $10/month.

Can non-subscribers attend a live class or special event?

Yes. Non-Subscribers may offer a donation of $20 to attend classes and events.

What is a Personal Instruction Experience (PIE)?

PIE is the opportunity to receive specific, one to one, guidance to support your movement practice, be it either yoga, Pilates, or Barre. A 30-minute session costs $10/session.

What is the Video Library?

The Video Library is a collection of movement classes lasting 20-30 minutes each. The classes include yoga, Pilates, barre, and fitness walking.

Classes are appropriate for most skill levels, beginners, and more experienced bodies. The gentle type classes welcome those new or returning to movement due to injury or a medical procedure. The more challenging classes consider all bodies. And as always it is best to obtain your doctor’s permission before beginning any new activity.

Are the Live Classes any different than the library?

These classes are the same type and nature as the library except some live classes may extend beyond 30-minutes. The Hearts & Minds Movement Studio class schedule is dynamic in that subscribers have a say in days, times, and activities. If there is a demand for beginning Pilates classes, new series are always an option.

What to expect when subscribing to Hearts & Minds Movement Studio?

What if I do not use Zoom?

What is the Personal Instruction Experience (PIE)?

PIE is an opportunity to receive individualized guidance.

What is the H&M Reading Circle?

Your fitness depends on the well-rounded wellness all your bodies; physical, mental, emotion, and etheric. The reading circle is another approach to consider.
