Struggling to get a mat in your favourite yoga classes?
Fed up with needing to stay up till midnight to play fastest fingers first to book your slot?
Or maybe very dulan you cannot max out your monthly unlimited pass?
Give online classes a try! It might take some getting used to at first, but these are some reasons why online yoga classes are a great option:
You only need a small space to do yoga.
You can literally roll out of bed, click the link and sit in front of your screen.
Imagine the time saved now you don’t need to wait for the bus or the train or find parking. No more stress in traffic jams and scrambling to make it in time for the five minute grace period.
Now you can fit a class in before work starts, during your lunch break, while waiting for the laundry…
which brings us to the next point.
We offer 40 online live streamed classes each week! Going online increases the pool of classes you can attend at each timing, and unlike in the studio, there will almost always be space.
Unlimited pass holders – you can now book as many back to back classes as you like. Doesn’t matter if it’s a public holiday, or if it’s a Saturday morning. Confirm can get slot. (The system doesn’t allow you book more than one class per day for now, so email us and we will manually add you in.)
You might be able to attend more of your favourite teacher’s classes, or even try out new teachers and class types. As each instructor has a unique style of teaching, online classes are a great way for you to try out different styles to find out which resonate with you the best.
More chance to cheat!
Want to cop out on the core work and replace chaturanga with child’s pose? Turn off your camera and your instructor (we all know who they are) can’t call you out for slacking.
Chances to cheat aside, being at home and having a choice to be “unseen” makes yoga a lot less intimidating. After all, there is always that person in class folding into some complicated pretzel shape or insisting on jumping into a handstand at each vinyasa while you’re struggling to keep up.
You can keep telling yourself to listen to your body and respect your practice, but still feel a little thrown off and stressed. Not a problem at home if it’s just you and your instructor on screen.
Ultimately, online classes are a great complement to practising at the studio, and will probably be here for the long run. Being open to a mix of both will help you find the time to practice so you can keep your fitness and health goals alive.
