Zoom Yoga has proved to be very popular – a chance to connect with other Village members, to exercise, and to relax at the end of each session.  It’s very easy and convenient – and can be done from the comfort of your own home – or even a vacation spot – on a computer, tablet, or even a smartphone!

We have two instructors and each class is slightly different: the Tuesday class, taught by Lillian Rozin, includes some poses done on a mat (or rug); the Thursday class, taught by Shiva Das, is done while sitting on a sturdy armless chair and standing behind the chair for balance.  Each class includes a focus on breathing, balance, and stretching as well as a chance to relax and de-stress.

What some class members say about Zoom Yoga:

  • “The classes have been so convenient and brighten up my day. I look forward to them each week – a great help during these trying times since they relieve stress and energize at the same time.”
  • “One Thursday, I was so relaxed by the class that I almost fell asleep in my chair at the end.”
  • “Doing the classes by Zoom is really easy. I like having the ability to have two different classes, with two great teachers with different styles.”

If you have never used Zoom before, the East Falls Village website has tips on using Zoom on its home page.

Note that the Thursday class does not require getting on the floor – just a chair. By turning on the “Speaker View” you get a closeup of the instructor – some class members say it’s easier to hear and see on Zoom. And if you are self-conscious, you can turn off the video – and all we’ll see is your name.

The next paid series of yoga classes will be Tuesdays (July 14 – August 25) and Thursdays (July 16 - August 27). You may register for both sessions – or just one afternoon per week.
