Shriyoga Zoom Details, Practice Guidelines + Etiquette:

All classes are currently being taught online at Zoom.  Class times listed are in Eastern time as we are NYC.  Please adjust accordingly for your local time zone.  Our etiquette and guidelines for the practice of yoga in a community/group setting is offered with respect for the tradition as a sacred study and for a pleasant, focused experience for all.

  • All classes on the Schedule are linked to our Zoom room, so 5-10 minutes prior to the start of class you will simply click on the class you wish to join and you will be directed either straight to the Zoom room or to a waiting room until Elizabeth, the host, opens the class.
  • All donations/offerings prior to class by VENMO:  @ shriyoga or ZELLE:  shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com unless otherwise arranged by email
  • Dogs, cats, pigs, birds and hamsters are welcome as guests. 🙂
  • Before the start of class, go to zoom.us to download the app onto your device and ensure that that device has video camera and audio capabilities so that you may see the teacher and the teacher may see you, if you wish to be seen!
  • Once in our Zoom room you will be able to see Elizabeth and other students who have their videos turned on. It is your choice whether to turn your video on or off for practice. Your audio will be muted once practice begins so that Elizabeth will be the only audio on whilst leading class to minimize interference. There will be a brief time at the end of class for you to un-mute your audio and ask questions or to say goodbye.
  • If sharing a computer camera with another family member, please make sure that you have set it up so that Elizabeth can see both of you.  We suggest separate devices where possible as then you will have your own screen for Elizabeth to view.
  • It is recommended to practice on an empty stomach.
  • Please have water available.  We suggest drinking before class rather than during.
  • If you are new to practicing with us, please inform us by email a day prior to participating with any physical concerns including pregnancy.  Elizabeth wants to make sure to give you modifications.
  • Please stay for the final savasana (resting pose) at the end of class as it is the most healing part of the class. The savannas are short in the Zoom format.
  • If you have any questions regarding the Zoom platform, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com

Please see below the class descriptions for the class offerings currently live on our online schedule:

A FREE Class open to ALL

 

Donations for Below Community Classes

 

Donations/Offerings are on a sliding scale dependent on financial ability via:

VENMO:  @shriyoga
 
No amount is too small and is sincerely appreciated.  Elizabeth wants everyone included as maintaining community and heart-felt connection is important to our well-being. Let’s remain spirited!
Please email with any and all questions, including how to send a check if Venmo or Zelle are impossible.  We are also contemplating a way for those of you asking for a weekly set amount to take all of the below open classes:

Community Yoga:

Mondays 6:15pm  https://zoom.us/j/288440582

Tuesdays 1:00pm  https://zoom.us/j/160969826

Thursdays 1:00pm  https://zoom.us/j/504158842

Saturdays 11:00am https://zoom.us/j/289482607

Any class that is listed as “Community” on the schedule is OPEN to all levels and is 1 hour.  Elizabeth will remain available for anyone interested for an additional 10 minutes of meditation and connection.

Community Meditation:

Wednesdays 12:00-12:45pm  https://zoom.us/j/804077843

Fridays 12:00-12:45pm  https://zoom.us/j/494889180

Yoga Fundamentals:  

Wednesdays 10:00am https://zoom.us/j/736683910

The FUNDAMENTALS on Wednesday mornings is also OPEN to all and is 80 minutes. The class is open to anyone who is willing to move at a slower, more deliberate pace with extra details.  It is especially good for those of you who have never practiced with Elizabeth “in person” before, those who are returning to yoga, starting yoga and/or needing modifications for injuries.  Elizabeth will assist you in getting the hang of how to listen to the alignment cues and basic sequencing.  The intention is to give you an opportunity to absorb “how” to practice without having a teacher physically demonstrate all the poses for you.

Sutra Satsang + Meditation:  

Saturday 10:00am  https://zoom.us/j/989905528

The Saturday “Sutra Satsang” is open to all and is one hour. This class is for those interested in understanding the yoga philosophy through the lens of the Yoga Sutra and how it relates to practice and living life.  If you have the time after the 8:30am yoga class, it is a wonderful way to understand that asana (poses) is just 1 of the 8 limbs of Yoga.   Elizabeth includes guided meditation practice within the context of this class, and you will have time to offer your own insights as we converse consciously.

Advanced Registration Classes:

Deep Dive:  

Thursday 10:00am https://zoom.us/j/995644248 (password required)

This DEEP DIVE class is for skilled practitioners and/or for those who have been studying with Elizabeth “in person” for at least a year. Class will be limited to 12 people and is 80 minutes.  In order to register for this class, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com  with your intention to join on a Thursday.  We will confirm your spot, direct you to Venmo/Zelle prior to class and a password for the class will be sent.  If you are certain that Thursdays at 10am is a perfect time for you to commit on a weekly basis, we can arrange for a monthly contribution (again, on a sliding scale).

Term Classes

Our Spring Term Tuesday 10am class is also in the Zoom format for now.  These classes allow for a rare level of study and focused attention from Elizabeth with a committed group of only 9 students.  At this time we cannot accept anyone else into the current class as we are already in the middle of the term.  The next Term will begin on April 28th.  If you are interested in participating in a future term, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com.  It is uplifting to study and create continuity with the same group every week!

Private Lessons

A focused, one to one lesson exploring yoga, pranayama (breath work), meditation, mantra and/or Self-inquiry on a more personal level.  Private lessons are a wonderful opportunity to unravel any aspect of your practice that continually challenges you, .  Refinement of elements of the practice already known is another gift of one to one study.  Identify exactly what you need to breathe more fully, dive deeper, sit with ease or simply recognize who you really are.

Please email shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com to enquire about the rates which are dependent on Elizabeth’s schedule.

1 hour private lessons are one to one, between one student and the teacher.

If you schedule 1.5 hour private lesson, you can share it with 2 other people.

Additional rates apply for private group of 4 or more.

Please note that when sharing a lesson, all participants must generally be at the same level of ability with no significant injuries or physical limitations.

Elizabeth uses Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp and now, ZOOM for private lessons.

Reiki + Healing

Elizabeth Rossa is now available for Reiki sessions as either an “add-on” to a yoga/meditation session or simply on its own.

Reiki is an intelligent, Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation which can promote a sense of profound well-being. The benefits of a Reiki session are now being recognized in many healing centers and hospitals.  The premise is that “Ki” the life force energy moving through us can be be improved with a direct intention and openness to the idea of “Rei”, the power of a wisdom of a Universal Presence. Although a spiritual practice, Reiki is non-dogmatic and is in no way a conflict of specific spiritual beliefs, systems or tradition. Reiki is an inclusive, supportive and caring practice; a practice that respects our existence as inherently sacred.

Reiki healings are being offering in only the “distance” format.  It is still profoundly effective.

Workshops

SHRIYOGA’s  first 3 Hour Workshop in the ZOOM format is on Sunday, March 29th.  Please check out our Workshops and Events page for all details.

Please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com for any and all questions.
