It's an exciting time to be a vaccinated individual, but a confusing time to run a yoga studio with modest floorspace.  Rather that rush "back to normal", we are pausing to consider whether new patterns may better serve our community of teachers and students.
Several key discoveries from the past year of virtual teaching:

  • We get more students in some of our Zoom classes than can fit in our studio with reasonable distancing.  And some students who moved away are now attending again from afar.
  • It's easier to practice regularly when you don't have to spend time on commuting, parking, etc.  Some of you are practicing every day, which makes us very happy.
  • Many students find it more comfortable and less intimidating to practice in the privacy of their homes.
  • We can easily timeshift classes for folks who can't make the scheduled time, making them accessible to more people.

Yet there are negatives as well.  We have far fewer new students coming to the studio, and those do who come have a harder time connecting to the existing community.  We can't give personal guidance around alignment.  And Zoom fatigue is real.


After much puzzling, our decision for the summer is this:  all weekly classes will remain on Zoom, but we will run a number of in-person events that take advantage of the benefits of live presence.


Nick will also hold monthly "alignment intensives" to highlight details that need live, 3D presence to comprehend.  Other teachers may experiment with live events as well. Come August, we will reevaluate what makes sense for Fall.


We are grateful, as ever, for the ecosystem of souls who make Grateful Yoga possible.  We are feel honored every time you show up at appointed times to watch us dance about on your screens.  Somehow we have built an etheric web of support despite mute microphones and weird camera angles!  Especially big bows of gratitude go to our Sustaining Members, whose monthly commitments have kept studio finances in a healthy place.


As always, we are very open to your feedback and suggestions.

 

Thanks,

lela and nick
