Will other people see me on zoom?

  

  1. You will arrive with your video off

  2. Most people turn the video on so that I can see what they are doing 

  3. You can leave your video off, but my video will be spotlighted so no one will be looking at your video

  4. I put everyone on mute, but you can always un-mute to ask a question

What if I have questions about poses?

I am always so happy when people ask questions!  

  1. You can come early or stay after the zoom class to ask a question

  2. Asking a question during class might also help others -ask away!

  3. Yoga Practice is intended for you to LEARN how to do yoga, and it is totally appropriate for you to ask questions

  4. You can always schedule a private yoga class with me on zoom or in person.

Will I ever get flexible??

I was the stiffest yoga student when I first started back in 2000! I promise you can increase your flexibility  

  1. You need to practice yoga on a regular basis.  I suggest at least 3 times a week

  2. When you figure out where your stiffness is, you need to change your body habits to start loosen up stiff joints and to counter bad posture habits to create new, healthier patterns

  3. You might also need strength training.  Yoga can also help you get stronger, but don't ever underestimate yourself or your body.  You can always get stronger! Strength is GOOD! 

  4. No one gets a trophy for being flexible.  Flexibility and fluidity in joints is what you are looking for in order to be able to move easily (especially after getting out of bed in the morning!) but it won't make you a better person...

What do I need for class?

Nothing except for a desire to take care of yourself- body, mind and spirit

  1. Yoga mat

  2. Two blocks and a strap (although you can get creative and find substitute props.  If you buy blocks, I recommend the 4" blocks instead of the smaller 3" blocks.  I also recommend the longer straps (6-9ft).  Here is a website you can buy these on if you cannot find them. 

  3. For RESTORTATIVE YOGA you will need a bolster and blanket (in addition to your blocks and strap).  Get a sturdy bolster.  Here is what I recommend Yoga Bolster
