Keep up your practice
To help you continue your yoga practice through this trying time, Gloucester Yoga is offering online classes to help keep you engaged in community yoga and so you can enjoy your yoga practice in the safety and security of your own home. These classes will be offered through Zoom. Purchase your virtual class pass here. You do not need to make reservation for virtual classes.
Use in-studio passes for virtual classes
If you have a current punch pass or unlimited pass, your expiration date will be extended by 131 days (that’s how long we will have been closed). Punch passes and unlimited passes may be used for virtual classes. Unlimited pass holders will automatically be invited to join virtual classes. If you have a punch pass (5 or 10 class pass or new student pass) and would like to use that pass for virtual classes, please email the studio at least one hour prior to class.
We will be streaming these classes live using Zoom, which is free for you to use. You can join a class from your computer using the Zoom app or a web browser, or by using the Zoom app on your smartphone or tablet. You will need a broadband or high-speed internet connection. Participation using a video camera and microphone is optional, however most laptops, smartphones, and tablets have webcams and microphones built in.

How to use Zoom
If you have not already done so, please go to our online store and purchase a virtual class pass.
If you will be attending a virtual class using a smartphone or tablet, or which to use the Zoom desktop app for PC, click on the appropriate link below to download the app for your device.
You will receive an invitation email the morning of the class with a link to join the class. When you click the link in the email you will be prompted to download or launch Zoom. The instructor would prefer to see you in your poses. However, you may choose to not allow Zoom access to your video camera or microphone. If you see rectangles of multiple screens instead of a solo screen of instructor, click “speaker view” in top right of screen. Speaker View should be the default.
Instructors will start the Zoom meeting 15 minutes before each class starts. Please try to join your first class early to ensure you have a good connection and can both see and hear your instructor and join following classes on time. Once class starts we cannot guarantee that the instructor will see you waiting to be admitted to the class and it is disruptive to others for the instructor to stop class to admit students.
Do I need to reserve a space through RhinoFit for virtual classes?
No. However, if you want to track your progress, you can reserve a spot and after completion of the class, your participation will be recorded as attended.
May I use in-studio passes for virtual classes?
Yes, if you have a punch pass (5 or 10 class pass or new student pass) and would like to use that pass for virtual classes, please email the studio at least one hour prior to class so that you are added to the Zoom invitation. One and six month pass holders are automatically added to the Zoom invitation.
If I am late for a virtual class, will I be admitted?
Maybe. Once class starts we cannot guarantee that you will be admitted to the class. It is disruptive to others for the instructor to stop class to admit students. Instructors will start the Zoom meeting 10 - 15 minutes before class starts so you can ensure you have a good connection.
Do I need to keep my video on?
No. However, the instructor would prefer to see you in your poses in order to see how you are receiving their cues so that they are able to make adjustments to the pace or provide more verbal instruction, if necessary.
If you have additional questions, please email the studio.
