ONLINE LESSONS when you NEED TO, INDOOR LESSONS when you CAN
Yogaschool Amsterdam and the pandemic
We ‘re open again!
Due to the measures against the Coronavirus, the school was closed during lockdowns. We showed our resilience and started teaching from home via Zoom. But luckily we are now open again! Our schedule contains daily lessons that we stream from the school, so that you can also participate from home. Find it all in our current schedule. There you will see two parallel lessons, one called IN DE ZAAL and one ONLINE. So you sign up for one of the two, so that we do not exceed the maximum number of participants in (9 people). Sign up on the waiting list if it turns out that the class is full. You will be automatically emailed at least two hours in advance if there is still room for you.
Lessons Are now On- and Offline!
If you are coming for the very first time, come to the school for class. If you suffer from injury, we would also like to see you in the school. However knowledgeable the teacher is, the screen is flat, making proper observation and assistance difficult. The school also has all the tools you need.
Of course you will not come to the group class with mild symptoms, but you could consider taking Online class.
If you really don’t feel well and you have a fever, it is better not to do yoga and let the body recover through rest.
We teach in Dutch or English.
Mats and all other aids are available in the hall.
Wear sporty clothes, we work barefoot.
What will you need for an online lesson?
A chair and / or a free piece of wall, a mat, two blocks, a belt and three cotton blankets, or alternatives for these. Be creative with your own furniture.
Use of Zoom
Put your screen horizontal. Start with “Gallery view” and check whether you are clearly visible when you are standing on your mat, with the arms raised or spread. Then go to “Speaker view” so that you can clearly see and hear the teacher while following the lesson.
Have a place in your house where you can practice 2 to 3 meters in front of your smartphone (small!) / Tablet (better) / laptop or computer (best). The WiFi connection must be stable.
The yoga class with Zoom is interactive, which means that the teacher will do the exercise and explain and suggest which props you work best with. Once you do the exercise, the teacher will look at the screen and provide feedback to those who need it. If you do not want to be visible, you can agree that your camera is switched off. Mind you, you will follow the lesson, without enjoying the feedback and the personal contact.
How do you proceed?
Register via the current schedule until at least half an hour before class starts. Click on “Book now” at the lesson you want to follow. Momoyoga automatically leads you to create an account (please use a working email address). You can then pay and complete the booking. You’re now on the class participant list.
Half an hour before class starts you ‘ll receive an e-mail with the link to Zoom. Click that link and enter! You do ‘nt need to install Zoom in advance, it also works on your browser and you will be automatically taken there.
Are you participating an online class for the first time? Please log in fifteen minutes before the start and we will see together how you are visible in your room so that the teacher can give you instructions and feedback. After class there is time to consult with the teacher.
By participating, you affirm that you alone are responsible for your participation, and that you agree to irrevocably waive any claims against Yogaschool Amsterdam.
