If ever there was a time the world needed yoga, it’s now. It feels heavily ironic, then, that avid yogis had their go-to classes cancelled overnight. But thanks to internet, which has enabled yoga teachers to continue to reach their clients, and to tap into larger audiences too.

As this pandemic continues to prove, good things can be born out of bad. One yoga teacher, told me that shortly after Covid hit, she found herself “ready to be creative again”, and needed to “have a reinvention moment.” In other words – this unprecedented turn of events has been a sort of positive force for many, giving them the gumption needed to get imaginative with their offering, and even to improve it.

Hi jclone,

I've wondered about this as well. I can definitely see how some positive changes could be spurred by the constraints of the pandemic. My local studio has started offering livestreamed versions of their classes in parallel to their in-person classes (they're currently open as of writing this). Perhaps they are reaching a wider community this way, and I hope it goes well for them and the community in general. The world definitely needs its yoga teachers more than ever.

True! I can say that with internet today, my teacher has reached a bigger community than before, but I did miss my friends whom I always go with yoga classes before. I miss those times we go out and eat after 2 hours of yoga classes.

The public health crisis has a considerable impact on the yoga community. I have taught classes outside for a while, but they have stopped as it got cold here. The zoom classes attract a different group than the in-person classes, and overall the attendance is much lower. A few have commented that their yoga practice has become more stable during this time, but most seem to struggle to maintain a regular systematic practice. I am looking for the best way to support students with online retreats and weekly zoom classes.

I truly miss attending class in person, the subtle energy and intention shared in a roomful of yogis. I will say my personal practices have not suffered as opportunities for asana are there throughout the day, but I miss the assists given by the teacher who was also a massage therapist; unfortunately his studio did not survive the pandemic shutdown.

I think because of limited activities that we can do in isolation, some people decided to try to do things they never did before like attending yoga online, that's why I too get to know new faces from my class sessions time to time.

Changed in a bit where everyone's doing yoga classes in the comfort of our homes. I do miss doing practice with my friend, apparently, she went off-grid trying to level-down this pandemic before she goes back here again.
