With shelter-in-place measures in place and wide-spread gym closures sweeping the country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many have turned to online workout classes. And, after nearly a year at home, we’ve learned that getting some movement in — even over Zoom — can be beneficial to the mind and body.

However, even though online classes and virtual gyms are the safest way to exercise with a group or instructor right now, there are some drawbacks. One of the most obvious? It’s difficult for instructors to correct their students’ form over Zoom. Unfortunately, poor form can lead to injuries, which is why using a mirror while working out can be immensely beneficial, especially if you’re practicing yoga, pilates, boxing or any other mat-based exercise regimen.
