Why do live-online Yoga classes?
While it’s not the same as practicing in a studio in person, it’s close. We can see each other onscreen, and the class flow and instruction is as if we were all in the same room. This is different from the scripted, on-demand workout videos you can grab online!
Are you missing the group energy of an in-person yoga class? Live-streaming allows you to be a part of something that is happening now, from the convenience and privacy of your home. Set up your practice area with your yoga mat and props – a block, strap, blanket – choose your own music, light a candle, and get ready to tune in on your iPad, laptop, smartphone, or smart TV. If groups are not your thing, then you can turn off your video and practice with us in private.
