Quite frankly, Zoom has been a lifeline for me during these times! I am so grateful to be able to continue my practice this way. Sure, it was a bit strange in the beginning but now I realize how much more flexibility it affords me. I’ve been working from home since mid-March and it’s likely to continue that way through next year. Since I don’t have to drive anywhere to take my classes, I can practice in the morning (my preferred time). It’s only an hour. I block out the time on my calendar and it’s just like any other meeting.
Going back into the studio and having to wear a mask while practicing is not appealing to me and while there are a few more distractions being home, the benefits far outweigh those distractions. I would hope that once we do get back to being able to practice all together in the same room, Zoom classes will still be available for at least some of the time. There would be almost no reason to miss a class. No matter where you are, if you have internet access, a Zoom yoga class isn’t far away!
To sum it up, Zoom yoga classes offer so much more flexibility and the ability to take many more classes than I would normally take. I love it!
