The world has been turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we yoga teachers are trying to figure out how to offer new and innovative ways to learn, teach, maintain practices, and, most importantly, stay connected.
As we know, many yoga teachers have been offering online yoga classes via Zoom, a video conferencing platform that allows for live streaming of a virtual yoga practice. Through Zoom meetings, yoga instructors are giving their students the live interaction they crave amid these times of social distancing. But doing it well, especially for those who are totally new to online teaching, is a challenge.
YTA member Jen Netrosio is taking on that challenge. When the studio she was managing closed because of COVID-19, Jen and her fiancé (also a fitness instructor) quickly turned their living room into the stage for their virtual studio. They moved furniture to create space and set up sound, lighting, and video equipment to provide a meaningful yoga experience that would feel familiar to their students. Jen branded her teaching style as Limitless Soul Yoga, and she and her fiancé launched a website to function as hub for their virtual classes: superhumansoul.com. Along the way, they learned a lot.
Now, with Delivering a Successful Yoga Experience via Zoom, Jen is sharing with her fellow teachers a road map to teaching yoga virtually.
In Part 1 of this two-part workshop, Jen covered the fundamentals of teaching via Zoom.
Part 2 is for those who have taken Part 1 and/or who are already comfortable with the technical part of teaching online but want to improve the experience for students. Part 2 will cover:
- enhancing the audio and visual experience
- adjusting your teaching style for virtual classes
- ways to foster and maintain a sense of community through Zoom
- overall best practices

Jen Netrosio is a 200-hour RYT and is currently working toward her 500-hour RYT certification. Pre-COVID19, Jen was leading a team of 21 teachers at a studio in Westchester. When the world changed, Jen and her fiancé launched a virtual fitness and yoga studio, Superhuman Soul. Superhuman Soul promotes equanimity through the union of opposites. In addition to yoga and fitness classes, Superhuman Soul hosts the biweekly Self Love Club and monthly Soul Food Book Club. Both are free virtual discussion groups designed to bring thoughts and people together.
