When my local studio temporarily shut its doors and started live streaming yoga classes, my feelings were mixed. I was grateful to be able to practice, but I was skeptical. Part of the reason I love attending yoga classes is being able to breathe and move WITH people.
The more I thought about Live Stream, the more I thought about why I attend yoga classes in general. I already practice at home, so why DO I attend yoga classes? My answer: sangha, or community. I crave the connection with other like minded individuals. I thrive on deep conversations, friendly smiles, and hugs from friends. Now that I remembered my Why, I decided I would approach Live Streaming with an open mind and give it a try.
I have been so pleasantly surprised by Live Stream classes! I love seeing familiar faces and new ones. In the time of a global pandemic, my yoga practice and community connection have been essential for my physical and mental health. They remind me that we are alone together.
My next question was why Live Stream my local classes when I could enroll in one of the hundreds of yoga subscription services? I feel that practicing through my local studio feels good. It feels good to support my teachers and a local small business. It also feels powerful to practice with other people that live nearby.e are strengthening our community together.
