Practice Dailey, Anywhere, Anytime.

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.  


1. 20 Years of Experience

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.

2. Feel connected to your instructor and studio 

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. 


3. TOTAL workout

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.

Unexpected Looks and Learnings from 2020

To put it bluntly—2020 was a real bummer. When we entered the year, we all had that “20/20 vision” mindset of making the year one of travel, joy, discovering new hobbies, and conquering our fitness goals. But come March, that vision became a blurry mess of sheltering-in-place and being forced to throw our normal routines and our aspirations out the window.  

Who would have thought that something like getting a haircut would be off-limits? Or that those monthly massages wouldn’t be around to help us unwind? 2020 forced us to get creative, and you blew us away with your stick-to-itiveness. 

We recently polled you on Instagram to see which beauty and wellness services you missed the most and how you’ve re-vamped your self-care routines to stay sane during this train wreck of a year. And I must say, as I read your responses in my sweats, rocking the messiest top knot of all time, I definitely felt like I need to take it up a notch when it comes to getting ready for the workday.  

Seriously—an alarming number of you have been on point when it comes to sticking to your daily morning routines and actually wearing work clothes while on Zoom calls. Kudos to you!  

Curious to see what the takeaways were from our Instagram poll? Keep reading.

Takeaway #1: All beauty services are missed equally 
beauty services missed 2020

According to your responses, you're all sick of your exposed roots and split ends equally, with 51% of you preferring to get a haircut and 49% opting for hair color. The numbers were also pretty close when it came to your nails—with 52% of you opting for a manicure over a pedicure. Due to the pandemic, the state of the beauty industry has been on a rollercoaster of openings and closings—and they need our help and support now more than ever. If you happen to live in an area where you’re able to enjoy beauty services, make sure you show your stylist or nail artist a little bit of extra love when tipping them.  

 

Takeaway #2: You miss massages, but are ready for touchless spa treatments 
touchless spa treatments

Anybody who knows me will tell you the thing I miss the most is getting a monthly massage—and 71% of you seem to agree. With most of us working from our beds or hunched over our laptops on our couches, our posture (if not our comfort) has taken a serious hit. While most of us either live in an area where massages are off-limits or we just don’t feel safe going in for one quite yet, there are some touchless spa treatments you're ready to try.  

  • 69% of you are interested in trying an infrared sauna treatment—no surprise during the cold winter months. This type of treatment uses light to directly warm your body to increase heart rate, help you sweat out the bad stuff (like all that wine we’ve been drinking), and treat chronic health problems.  
  • 31% of you are willing to brave the cold of cryotherapy. These sessions aim to decrease inflammation and speed up recovery time after an intense workout by standing in an extremely cold chamber of liquid nitrogen or dry, fresh, oxygenated air. 
  • 52% of you are down to try out salt caves. Turns out, Himalayan pink salt isn’t just for you fancy home chefs out there. By sitting in an entire room made of this salt, you can relax and potentially treat respiratory and skin issues.   
  • 48% of you are ready to suit up for a float tank sesh. If you love meditating, this is the perfect touchless spa treatment to try. Float tanks are filled with body-temperature saltwater—and they’re lightless and soundproof. You guys—I’ve tried this and it’s definitely the kind of R&R we all need right now.  
Takeaway #3: Your self-care routines are admirable 

Call it wishful thinking, but I was fully expecting most of you to say, “Zoom camera off” as your go-to beauty tip—but I guess that’s just me. Instead, you've all been pretty consistent with your morning routines—working out, showering, and dressing like you're actually going into an office. Some of you are even going the extra mile and putting on a red lip and some earrings. I’m taking notes.  

And even though this year’s challenges put a damper on our normal routines, it's inspired us to get creative with our skincare regimen. Some of you have added new serums and masks to your skincare arsenal, while others have tried out at-home facials for that quarantine glow. By far, one of the most popular answers was the incorporation of Gua Sha to help detoxify, brighten, and tighten your skin.  

This year was one for the books. But I think it made us realize there is always wellness—and that taking care of ourselves is crucial. If you're in an area where in-house beauty services are an option, book that appointment (if you feel safe to do so). If your only option right now is to stay at home, keep carrying on with your feel-good, at-home routines.
