Today I just did my first (of probably many) Zoom online yoga classes. It was a fundamentals class, lasting an hour. Here’s a list of things I really liked about it.
5. The commute: I left my zoom department meeting at 11:50am in my dining room, walked to the living room and set up my mat, props and laptop in time for noon class.
4. Easy wardrobe change: I was wearing my yoga clothes in my work meeting with a nice-looking (to me) sweater, which I took off for yoga. Presto, change-o!
3. Time and money savings on laundry: I wore the same yoga clothes for the zoom class as I had the day before for my video yoga workout. Hey, you’re all doing it too… 🙂
2. Opportunities for cultivating compassion; in my case, for the yoga teacher whose headset kept falling off, so she gave up and just kind of yelled for the rest of the class. No complaints– it worked.
And now, number 1:
At least it wasn’t yoga on the deck of a kayak!
Hey readers: have you tried any zoom fitness/activity classes? How have you liked them? What haven’t you liked? We’d love to hear from you.

I teach wellness and physical activity courses at a university each semester. I am about to “Zoom” through the end of the school year. Wish me luck!
Good luck! I liked the class; it’s not as good as in person, but I appreciated all the detailed directions (I have mainly iyengar teachers). Let us know how it goes– maybe guest blog for us?
Just finished my first zoom yin yoga class. It was great and glitch free. Mind will by my first vinyasa class. I’m worried that I won’t push myself as hard without others around me.
Hi Tanya– it makes sense to me that yin via zoom might be more effective than vinyasa via zoom. Hmmm… interesting. We’ll all have to see how we adjust for this period of time. Let us know how it goes.
