What to do? Try online yoga!
Just a little conversation here. I morphed my face to face teaching of yoga, the second week of March, 2020 to online yoga.
A lot of people who were very comfortable coming to the church for their chair yoga and their gentle beginner yoga dropped off the face of the earth.
I wonder how they are doing and coping?
I do have a remind app to stay in contact with them, but it is like crickets out there.
Yoga Teacher problems, right?
I did though have many embrace the Facebook Live videos, the interactive nature of the Zoom Yoga rooms, and plus viewing Youtube videos.
Of course there is a lot out there for folks to pick from, and I am happy that I am able to serve and continue to provide movement, stress relief and a bit of humor during our world’s health crisis.
If you haven’t embraced the ability to connect with your teacher through the online formats, I highly encourage it!
For me, I’ve been able to tap into weekly classes for my own discovery and enjoyment. I too, am the student, so I do know where you are coming from.
- I take a weekly Form and Function Class with Egoscue Teacher out of the state of New York, through the Zoom Video platform. I am really enjoying this class. I pay $10 for this class, and it is so worth my money.
- Then I take either a Zoom or a Facebook Live class with my fellow Veterans Yoga Project Teachers. Again, learning so much for my personal practice. These classes are free to Veterans, friends and family!
- I also subscribed to YogaJP online chair and gentle classes. I was able to get a Black Friday Special price for these classes. I occasionally do one of their classes.
- I also subscribed to Wise Owl Fitness, and she puts up Nia, Yoga, Chair Yoga, Burlesque and other classes for us to enjoy. This also was a yearly fee. I enjoyed taking her Yoga Nidra training over a year ago, and am up next to take her Laughter Yoga training.
Anyway, I was excited that someone from my list of reminders want to come into the yoga room last night on Zoom, but alas, 8 minutes prior to starting the class. Again, Yoga Teacher problems right?
“Ms, Gail, how do I do the online class?”
Send me a payment through Paypal, then I’ll send you the link to the Zoom Yoga room. Here’s the link.
“Ms. Gail, I don’t have Paypal or Zoom.”
Okay, well then you can send me a check, but you won’t be able to come into today’s class. Go to Zoom.us to get started to do the Zoom Yoga Class.
“Ms. Gail, I went ahead and downloaded Zoom.”
Again, I’ll need payment prior to you coming into class. Hey, I need to go teach class, let’s catch up later and get you into next weeks class.
Be sure to look at all the tutorials, that I have listed on how to do Online Yoga with me ==> Yogawithgaileee.com on how to do a Zoom class with me!
