LBNL Yoga Club
All Yoga Club classes are currently virtual.
Give yourself extra time to change, set up mat/props, log in to Zoom, etc.
Prop up your device where you can view it and be seen
Wear comfortable clothes in which you can move, stretch, lie down
Let the instructor know if you're new to yoga or have any injuries
Keep on mute unless you have a comment or question, to ensure everyone can hear the instructor
Consider turning on your video to contribute to community experience, and provide visual feedback for the instructor to tune their instruction.
Get creative for props: No mat? A rug or the floor will work just fine; consider a blanket or pillow to pad your knees. No blocks? Try heavy books, sturdy luggage, sofa cushions, nearby furniture. For a strap, try a towel or clothing.
What to Expect
Classes tend to involve stretching, balancing, strengthening, flow, and core work. Participants should modify poses for themselves as needed.
Classes end with a few minutes of relaxation while lying down (savasana).
Paid: Monday and Friday classes with Ashley & Elizabeth are a sliding scale of $12-20 (see below or calendar event for online payment methods)
Free: Other classes are taught generously for free by Lab employees.
