Yoga Classes, Workshops & Meditation | LIVE on Twitch!

Hey everyone!

As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I have a big surprise for you! Starting February 11th – I will be doing weekly live streams via Twitch.tv! My husband is an avid gamer (aka. NERD) and watches live streams on twitch all the time. Recently, he planted the idea in my head that it might be fun to do a channel that is dedicated to yoga + health + wellness. At first, I wasn’t too into it TBH, but over time I started getting excited. I am most excited to use it as a way of being able to connect in real-time with those of you who follow my blog/sequences but are not local to me or my studio. My hope is that you will be able to join me on a weekly basis for one or several of the offerings. Below you will find the tentative schedule I’ll be starting with. These times are kind of an experiment, so feel free to comment any feedback on times you would prefer!

The first thing you need to do is FOLLOW ME on Twitch!

You will be prompted to create a profile so we can interact when I go LIVE! There is also an app available for your phone if that’s convenient for you. For the first 20 who follow, I will send a FREE E-BOOK of my yin yoga postures handbook. It includes poses, energetics and anatomical notes for the yin postures. Just send me a message via twitch after you follow with your email address so I can send you the download link!

By following, you will be notified whenever I go live so that you can tune in. You can tune in for as long as your schedule allows but each session will range from 1-2 hours.

My first stream: sunday, feb 11 @ 4:30PM

Sundays | Yoga Class + Hang Time | 4:30pm CST

This session each week will be dedicated to doing a full yoga class. I will likely do different styles each week fluctuating between yin, slow flow, and vinyasa. After class, when my schedule allows – my plan is to continue streaming to hang out, do Q&A, play with poses, etc.

Wednesdays | Mid-Week Meditation | 12pm CST

This will be a short guided meditation session. I plan to open it up with a gentle physical warm-up before we find our meditation seat. I will guide various pranayama techniques during these sessions as well.

Fridays | Workshop | 4pm CST

Each week I will break down a pose, transition, or a variety of the two. This session will also start with a warm-up especially if what we are working toward requires deeper movements with active muscles/joints. If we are breaking down a yin posture, we will probably just dive right in since the yin tissues of the body shouldn’t necessarily be “warmed” before stretched. I’ll do a poll each week to see what you all would like to focus on during these sessions. To participate in those polls, follow me on instagram!

My hope is to also stream at unscheduled times to share what I’m up to – maybe messing around with poses in my yoga space, to discuss a book or article, share a recipe, Q&A, etc.

I hope you will join me on this fun new adventure! Let me know if you have suggestions, questions, etc. in the comments below!

    This sounds awesome!! I am a college student/yoga instructor/intern so I have a crazy schedule. Do the live videos store in an archive, so I can watch them later (aka late evenings once my day ends lol)?

      Great question! Yes. I’m not exactly sure how long they’ll be archived on twitch but my hope is to upload them to YouTube as well. So you’ll be good to go to watch later as well if you can’t make it live every time 💕
