Excerpt from the original article :
MODIFYING CLASSES TO THE NEW NORMAL
At Bolly Dancing Studio, its director Mihir Wani said participants are encouraged to try one class to see if they can cope with exercising with a mask on, and to go easy on themselves.
“We also tell our participants - whatever you are comfortable with, do only that. If you can’t do 100 per cent, listen to your own body and you can modify accordingly,” he said.
“It’s lucky enough that you’re able to do a class in the studio, don’t go full out.”
Mr Wani said that at Bolly Dancing Studio, which offers classes like zumba and Bollywood dancing, some changes have been made to make sessions more comfortable with masks on.
Besides limiting the number of participants to improve ventilation in the studio, it has also reduced the intensity of classes, Mr Wani said.
