Online Classes - Family Yoga & Wellness - Breathing Space

Breathing Space Online • Live Classes and Camps 

Breathing Space offers classes for the whole family that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home.

Our live classes are delivered on the Zoom platform and are limited in size to ensure personalization and allow community-building class interactions. Series registration or membership required.

Live online classes welcome the entire family to participate for a single class fee based on $12 per class tuition.

While instruction will be tailored for the stated age, older and younger siblings are welcome to join in the fun. Parent participation is highly recommended for classes designed for children younger than 4 years. No previous yoga experience necessary; be prepared/dressed for for movement.

“The Breathing Space virtual classes have been a great way to get my kids (and the rest of us) active in a mindful and fun way at home, add some structure to the day, and stay connected to the community. The interaction with the teacher is wonderful and we even get to see some of our friends from past classes too. I am so grateful to the Breathing Space team for continuing to do what they do best!”

My daughter had so much fun in this class! This was a great afternoon, mindful, and active break. Having the real-time teacher interaction meant so much to her and kept her focused. She is already looking forward to the next one.”

Online Classes Frequently Asked Questions

toddler family yoga

Family, kids, and family classes require series commitment. Need to miss due to travel, illness or other conflict? Take advantage of our generous makeup policy.

Our children’s and family classes and some special topics are offered in multi-week series with students committing to multiple consecutive classes. There are lots of benefits to committing to a weekly class but we understand that modern life is busy and sometimes unpredictable. If you must miss a class, you have two options to make it up:

  1. Any family member may take any other appropriate weekly class during the same semester, even in advance – this means the same class on a alternate day or something different;
    • Because Baby Yoga & Play classes are offered in a shorter semesters and start dates are sometimes staggered, parents make carry one makeup class past the original series dates by one month.
    • Note that single date or short series workshops – infant massage, baby sign language parent workshop, etc –  are not options for makeups from weekly classes with the exception of family yoga “pop-up” classes. Pop-up classes are the weekly classes scheduled outside of the series. Makeups are welcome, but advanced registration IS required.
  2. If there is space in your class, you may bring a friend as your make-up class (instead of option 1). Guests need to create an account in our registration system to provide contact information and accept terms and conditions (includes our liability waiver and photo release). Please confirm space availability with your instructor.

What about live online classes? 

You may still use the online makeup scheduler to set up makeups for online classes.  Please be sure to do so 24 hours in advance to ensure you are added to the class roster and receive the appropriate Zoom links.

Which class can I take as a makeup?

Anything class that is appropriate for the family member doing the makeup class. You can even send different adult family members to do the makeup class. Students may make up in any location. For example, if you miss a baby yoga class and there isn’t another that suits your schedule, you may bring your toddler to Little Family Yoga as a make up (baby can even tag along). If you and your child miss Little Family Yoga, you may attend Baby Yoga & Play, a prenatal yoga class, or come to Baby & Toddler Singing Time (weekly class, not weekend workshop). Anytime we have a “Pop-Up” class on the schedule, that can be a makeup (pop ups must be reserved in advance).

 

How do I reserve a makeup class?

Our registration system has make up reservations. Log in to the system and look for makeups in the drop down menu under classes (this option only appears for registered students). See instructions here.

 

I really am only able to attend a couple classes, can I drop-in?

Prenatal Yoga is the only class where we allow drop-in attendance. Even for that class we recommend committing to a series or a multi-class pass.
 
 

Making Up in a Pop Up Class

Occasionally we offer “Pop Up” classes not associated with a series. Advanced reservation is required. Pop ups with insufficient registration 3 days in advance may be cancelled.
 
We publish pop up classes on our regular class calendar. They tend to happen at the end of a term, but Baby Yoga & Play is scheduled for semi-monthly weekend pop up classes! Get on our newsletter list to be notified.
 

Thank you for taking the plunge into online yoga with us!  We’ve run a few test classes and wanted to share what we’ve learned about how to make your experience the best it can be.

1. Just like our studio classes, expect your child to behave like a child.  There will be highly variable levels of engagement across the group for each activity.  Know that your child will participate exactly the way they need to. They may simply sit and watch the screen.  Or they may wander off. It’s all good.  

2. The best thing you can do to facilitate your child’s experience is to be near the screen, modeling the poses for your child.  Because we know children will not be as engaged by a computer screen as they would by an in-person class, we’ll add in a little more yoga for the  grown-ups so that you can continue participating if your child disengages. Just like in a studio class, the more yoga you do, the more yoga your child will do.

3. When you enter the Zoom meeting, your microphone will be muted.  Feel free to unmute for introductions or if you need to say something to the teacher, but in general, keep yourself muted.  Background noise from individual students becomes extremely distracting very quickly. Note that the teacher has mute/unmute controls for the whole class may unmute everyone at particular moments in class, such as to answer group questions or so we can hear each other while we sing. 

4. You don’t need any special equipment. A yoga mat is great, but you can skip it or use a towel or blanket.  Your teacher may email ahead of class supplies you may want to gather in advance, but will always suggest alternatives.  Scarves, for instance, can be literal scarves, cloth napkins, pillowcases, or even a t-shirt. We will generally end with some form of quiet time, so if you want to include bubbles, have them handy at the beginning of class.

5. Expect this to be a practice in authenticity.  Life is messy right now, and sometimes, so are these yoga classes.  We promise–no one is paying attention to your hair, your house, or your children’s behavior.  Your children will climb all over you. They will jump on the sofa. There will be toys or laundry scattered around your living room.  Your teacher’s children may decide to guest-star in the video. The yoga is important, but so is community, so let’s all take a collective breath, give ourselves grace, and decide to let each class experience just be what it is.

Note about privacy: Zoom has a setting to record only the instructor for our replays, but each teacher must enable that on their recording every time they start class. If they forget, it is possible that snippets of your living room will appear in the replay video during introductions or other times when you unmute your audio. (If you just want to hide your clutter – man there’s a lot of clutter when everyone spends all their time in a small space – you can set a virtual background to your video in Zoom.) We will not circulate replay videos beyond class participants without checking with you first.

Additionally, we are taking steps to ensure that our Zoom participants are only our enrolled students/members and that we do not experience the spamming problems you may have heard about on publicly accessible Zoom events. In addition to circulating the link ONLY to enrolled participants and taking attendance in classes, we have enabled passwords on all our events. We can change those at anytime. We have also disabled participant screen sharing and file sharing. Currently participants can engage in private chats with each other and the instructor and we feel this is appropriate given our other precautions. Please let us know if you have concerns.
