After this many months, I feel like we’ve gotten the hang of virtual yoga. But - I miss the energy of being in the room with you! You’ve probably been on dozens, if not hundreds of virtual meetings over the last several months. Sometimes, it’s tough to remain engaged. But other times, there is a good amount of energy and interaction that makes the meeting more interactive and enjoyable.
That is the idea behind this new workshop. Sometimes, you just want a good hour of flow to get your body moving. However, we also want to help you grow your practice, and encourage students to find progress in whatever way that is important to them. We think a differentiator in the world of online fitness is taking the time to connect with students and give them the feedback they want.
We are launching a workshop that takes a traditional flow class, but makes it more immersive and has more two-way engagement than our regular flow classes. We don’t know what to call it yet, but it’s got the working title of ‘Community Fun and Feedback Flow.’ (Your suggestions welcome!) It’s going to be the same flow class that you’ve come to enjoy, both online or in the studio, but with some differences:
- Students will have their cameras ON, so the instructor can see your asana. Having your camera ON also enhances the sense of practicing together.
- Students will display their actual name on Zoom
- The instructor will demo less, and offer more verbal alignment cues and adjustments.
- We may, depending on time and interest, break down a more challenging ‘Peak Pose.’
- Students may, at times, be addressed by name, in the spirit of offering specific adjustments to your practice. You might hear, “Nice job lengthening your spine Joe! Can you lift your leg a little higher, Christy? Great Adjustment with your shoulders, Gina!” This is to help you continue to develop your practice and explore postures more deeply, and to connect with each other as humans, not as a mosaic of black rectangles.
The workshop will be 90 minutes, which will allow enough time for traditional flow, as well as interaction and feedback to the students, and the opportunity to break down a more advanced pose or two.
I’m excited to bring some more interaction back to my teaching, and I hope you’ll join me!
