As concerns regarding the coronavirus grew over the past few weeks, Brave Vira Yoga owner Kelsie Cabrera said she first quit doing hands-on assists, and then removed all props from practices. On March 19, she closed her studio on the Georgetown Square and switched to virtual classes.

Free classes are available Monday-Friday on Facebook Live until the end of March. Recordings of the video stay posted on the Brave Vira Facebook page for 24 hours.

After April 1, the studio will begin to offer additional online classes for a small fee, Cabrera said.

The studio also began offering curbside retail March 23. Patrons can call or directly message the studio to order any gear they need for a home practice, including mats, blocks, straps, apparel and more. Products available are being posted on the studio’s story feature on Facebook, with price and size information included.

“We’ll process your payment and get everything ready up for you to pick up at the door, ensuring minimal contact,” Cabrera said in a Facebook post. “Quantities are limited to what we currently have in stock, so don’t miss out.”


Pickup hours are by appointment only, and free kombucha with a purchase is offered through March 31 or while supplies last.
