HOW DOES AN ONLINE CLASS WORK?

See the Online Class Schedule to the right to find the Meeting ID (password is 'cometoyoga' for all classes) or contact me and I will email you the direct URL link. 

Email Barbara at barbara@cometoyoga.com  to register, with questions, and for info about making an electronic payment on Venmo or Paypal (both free)) before class. You can also mail a check.


10 minutes before class starts, click the URL from the email or go to www.zoom.com, click on "join meeting" and enter the code and password. Immediately you will see Barbara live; when class starts you will hear her instructions and watch her doing the yoga throughout the whole class as you do the yoga at home. You have a setting to let Barbara see you as you do the yoga or not, your choice.


Four levels of yoga classes: "INTERMEDIATE" includes a good amount of stretching, strengthening and balancing plus inversions like shoulder stand, headstand; "MIXED LEVELS" is gentle with some challenging poses and strengtheners, but no full inversions; "GENTLE YOGA" is for seniors, beginners, and anyone wishing for a gentle yet effective class; "CHAIR YOGA" is 45 min and the most gentle class; it is done sitting in a chair, and may include a bit of standing while holding onto the chair.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THESE ONLINE CLASSES

 "I just took your Chair Yoga class and loved it! It is so deeply deeply relaxing and makes me feel so well and so alive. It's a miracle! It's amazing how much you can do with a chair!!"

... 

"Yesterday's gentle yoga class was spectacular for my legs...Whatever we did strengthened my quads and relaxed my calf muscles so that my legs were straight and felt strong and walking was wonderful. No pain in the knees. "

...

"I already feel SO much better than I did upon waking up today - I had lots of anxiety and chest clenching.  Those chest openers are critical for me right now, thank you for incorporating them! "

...

 "Centering. Calming. Perfect. I appreciated every moment. " (Gentle Yoga)

...

"I need the anti-anxiety, the breathing for calm, the grounding the class provides for me. Gentle yoga, because it is so deliberate, always appealed to me and now in a world that has been turned on its axis, it is essential."  

...

 "Not only am I getting quality teaching, but it's a time when I can feel connected with others. Feeling  gratitude."

Mixed Levels Yoga

A bit more fast-paced than the "Gentle Yoga" classes, more strengthening, we hold poses longer, challenge our balance more, and yet the class is still gentle. We start with a calming restorative pose and all classes include a breathing exercise. We need to keep our lungs strong now more than ever! 

Do yoga and create better flexibility, alignment, circulation, strength, and balance.
