I had not been going to Lindsay's yoga class for that long before the Coronavirus lock down came into force. I find it quite difficult to translate verbal instructions into physical instructions, and even harder to recognise when I am going wrong on my own. I had found Lindsay's face to face classes met my needs and I was concerned that moving to online lessons would mean I lost that essential feedback.
I didn't need to worry, Lindsay's step by step approach to build up to a position, the timely reminders during the exercises and the effective use of props means I barely miss the face to face classes. In addition, being able to see myself on Zoom gives me good visual feedback and really helps me understand where I am going wrong. An unexpected bonus of Zoom yoga lessons.
I get a lot of pleasure when I find I can get into a position I found impossible when I started or realise what I need to do to make the position correct.
The lessons are interesting and varied and the difficulty of the classes is increasing despite the online format. More importantly, I am making progress, and it is making those outdoor activities easier and more enjoyable.
