COVID-19 Update: The Yoga Institute is Live Online
Yoga When You Need it Most
The Yoga Institute of Broward will offer 8 classes a week, delivered virtually through zoom.us, a free video conferencing app. Our classes during this time will focus on quieting the mind, building immunity, creating connection, and keeping our hearts expansive toward ourselves and others. The format will be simplified with fewer poses and props.
Live online classes are offered in real time with you, the teacher and other students connecting virtually through video conferencing software. You will be able to see the teacher and interact with her. There will be time after class to interact with the group and ask questions. Ruth Ann is committed to being there for you. Your roommates, spouses and loved ones can join in at no additional cost.
Special Online Class Pricing
Because these classes are a different format than the group classes we offer at our studio, they are specially priced to provide an exceptional value. Any classes remaining on your class pass will be suspended until we're able to resume classes at the studio, and expiration deadlines will be extended accordingly. Class passes already purchased do not apply to the online classes.
Online class prices will be $18 for a single class, or $68 for a two-week unlimited pass, where you and any others in your home can take as many online classes as you can attend.
Registering for Classes
Please register as far in advance of your class as you are able. Registration links for our upcoming classes can be found on our Class Schedule page. When you register for a class you'll receive a unique link for you to attend the class. The first time you register for a class we recommend that you click the "Join" link immediately, even though it may not be time for the class to start. This will guide you through the setup process so you can make sure that the Zoom app is installed on your device and that you'll be ready to join when time for the class arrives. After you've registered for a class, you'll receive an email with your unique personalized link to join the class. We recommend that you join at least 15 minutes before the class begins so that you can resolve any setup issues before the class begins, and we can start on time.
For the best experience, you will want to use a device that has a large screen and speakers, so that you can easily see and hear the instructor.
You will be automatically muted during the session so that the only sound attendees will hear is the instructor. There is a chat function in zoom where you can ask questions prior to the class.
Preparing for your Online Class
• Clear a space and have your mat and props close. Use your imagination to find a chair or belt tie if you do not have a yoga chair or strap.
• Let your family or roommates know you will be in session to prevent them from disturbing you, OR invite them to join you!
• Turn off all notifications and any devices you won’t use to view the class.
• 15 minutes before class you should join using the unique link you received when you registered.
• View the class in full screen mode to get the best out of the class.
