Most of us are spending our days between 4 walls; dreaming of our next high five, group fitness sweat sesh or a big ol’ hug from well, anyone really! But the reality is the only real comfort hug we’re getting is from the confines of the refrigerator....Because #snacks amiright.

AOV is known for its enthusiastic thirst for any kind of adventure. Whilst we may not be able to #unplugwithaov the usual way, this quarantine life has got me thinking about the upsides to staying home all day.

...and we think you’re going to like the #diversion.

Here are our top virtual picks to satisfy your mind, body and soul during isolation…

1. Dance like no one is watching with Ryan Heffington. Ryan is the choreographer behind Sia’s greatest hits. He is offering FREE dance lessons & a whole lot of fun.

Thank you to everyone who's joined our KIC virtual gym over the past 2 weeks. It's brought us so much joy providing a sense of normality and connection in these challenging times. We recognise how hard it can be to get into a routine at the moment so we're continuing to work on ways we can provide you with motivation and healthy habits during this period. Based on your overwhelmingly positive feedback, we've decided to extend the virtual gym until April 17th! Our new schedule is here featuring fresh variety with meditation, pilates and yoga as well as a HIIT session in partnership with @adidasau available exclusively via their instagram. All other sessions will continue to be streamed live via our pages. See you there!
