Study Proves Benefits of Yoga for Bone Density

For Virtual Yoga Newbies:

1) Virtual Class Etiquette:  
a) Log in a little early to give yourself time to make any camera or sound adjustments needed.  It's also nice to have a little time to check in with everyone.

b) Please only have 1 microphone on, otherwise it creates feedback for the whole class, and makes it hard to hear each other - also, please be aware of whatever sounds are happening in the room with you, they will also be picked up by the microphone and shared with the group.  
c) Camera (Laptop/Tablet/Phone) placement - ideally is about 6-8 feet away from the camera and with your mat perpendicular to the camera (side view), if possible.  That said, I recognize that many of us have limited space available in our homes (like mine), and life is sometimes far from ideal.  Work with what you have, the important part is that you show up!!
d) Yoga Props - You will something you can use for a yoga mat (non-slip surface is preferable.  You will also want a belt (bathrobe belt works fine), blocks or a rolled up towel or 2… you can rubber band them to keep them from unrolling, a pillow of some sort for under your knees during Savasana (relaxation), and a blanket or beach towel to either sit higher or cover up during relaxation if you get cold.

2) I’m here for you!  Email me if you have any questions about anything yoga related, or just to say “Hello”. 
Take good care.  Be Gentle with yourself and look at this time as an opportunity to slow down and nurture yourself.  What are you grateful for at this time?  There is ample research-based data that shows how beneficial making the time to focus on gratitude is to help unwind that limbic system, primal response of fight or flight, or freeze.


On that note, I will pause to tell you all that I am profoundly grateful for the support of you all, my yoga community!  Thank you so much for showing up for yourself, and for each other, especially during this crazy time of crisis!
