She has a couple different businesses and she is here today to talk about those so everybody welcome and Bingham to the show and are you there? I am hi there. Hi Ann. How are you today? I'm great. Thanks for having me. Yeah. Thank you for making wage. Time I know things are kind of crazy they are but you know what? I always love to chatting with you. And so yeah, I'm just really happy to be here. Yeah. I'm excited to have Ian while before we get into the juicy stuff about your business and who you are and all that. I'd like to know what I'm sure the audience would like to know a little bit about you as a person. Can you elaborate a little bit Yeah, so I am I'm a mom. I have two amazing grown children. So yes, those of you who have younger kids and teenagers. I promise you it is every bit worth it is there is life on the outside and and it's pretty spectacular on the other side. I've been married to my husband Rob for twenty-seven years. We've been together for thirty years and we met in college and we've been really dead. Just have the that marriage that you know makes everybody ill we still like to spend time together hold hands and you know, all of those just wonderful things. I don't really know how we do it. But it's it's a great relationship. He's my very best friend in the world. We live in South Saint Louis. We live just a couple of blocks away from Soulard in a historic house a hundred and thirty years old and with our Pitbull our kids are by-and-large moved out. My daughter has a nice place. My son is in his last semester at Rolla and yes, we live with our rescued Pitbull and we lived about a mile and a half or so from the neighborhood that I grew up in. So I think that's my life in a in a snapshot right now outside of work wage. Um, and yeah, then the work side is I'm currently a I guess the easiest way to say it is I am a full-time yoga instructor and freelance Adventurer I guess is the easiest way to say it started doing that when I retired from being a preschool director and teacher I did that for about 30 years and gave that up because of a chronic illness. So that's kind of what landed me where I am now awesome. Well, let's talk a little bit about yoga is yeah some people like to do yoga has some health benefits. I guess. My first question to you man is with covideo around are you offering virtual class? I am yeah, so there's so covid has changed a lot about the way that we exercise and the way that we met a lot of things right and so I do virtual classes, but the way that I do them is a bit different. So I do see two things and one is I do private sessions for for folks individually online. And the other thing that I do is I do a kids class on Thursdays and Fridays because one of the things that we know is that Covetous really hitting our kids in a very really unprecedented Thursday. So the reason that I'm doing online classes like this is because when you're doing a there's lots off Studios out there right now that are doing online classes, but when you're doing that you're in effect watching an instructor and you're not really getting a great deal of feedback from that instructor on how you are holding a pose or how you were moving your body and that can provide some problems. If you're not if you're not doing a pose in the proper form you can end up getting injured you might find yourself in a class. That's maybe not appropriate for you. It might be too easy. It might be too hard and so doing a class with me individually. First of all, there's a little humor to it. Like it's just you and me wage. It's just like two people hanging out and then we personalize absolutely everything to you so that I can actually see what you're doing. And I can say, you know, maybe move your foot a little bit further to the left or to the right or if that feels like it's not feeling good. Then let's use a block or something like that. Maybe make that feel a little bit better for your body and give you what you need. So that's why we're doing those personal sessions rather than kind of group sessions.
