WoW! I have been busy this week! Along with a small core group of our teachers, we've been preparing to offer a limited schedule for in-person practices beginning the week of June 1st. We are also upgrading our capacity to deliver quality yoga to your home. I'm still working out procedures and systems for in-person practice so I'll have more on that for you later.
For now I want to let you know about our "Live Streaming" dry-run week.
Beginning this Saturday, May 23rd, we will offer a limited schedule of live streaming classes that we would love for you to help us test. We are working with two systems right now because neither is perfect and we want to work through the kinks to find the best possible system for you.
The way that you can sign up to participate is through out MindBody scheduler
which you can access from our home page
button. Or simply
click here to sign up for a live stream class next week!
If you are a current student at Shine, you already have a MindBody account. If you don't know your password, use the "forgot" password link to reset. If all else fails, set up a new account and we can merge them on our end later.
If you'd like to participate in the Live Streaming classes from home, it will be best to sign up ahead of time so that you can get the links you'll need to join us.
We are working to run our live streams through the MindBody platform but there have been a few technical challenges. A lot of it seems to be hardware and browser dependent so
please check out this link with Live Streaming instructions and details.
We may do a Zoom back-up for some or all of these classes during our dry run week. If you sign up for a Live Stream through the MindBody scheduler we will send you more information to make sure you are all set up and ready to join us.
In addition to re-opening the studio and offering the live streaming classes, we will continue to provide recorded classes to use at your convenience! As I mentioned, there will be some operational updates here at Shine but I'll fill you in about that later. We have one more week of running fully on donations. All the live stream classes are offered for free this first week but you can still make donations for use of those classes as you like. All the information about our recorded classes and donation portals can be found
I will be back in touch soon about our plans for welcoming students back for small in-person classes the week of June 1st. We'll have a limited schedule at first so that we can move consciously through the process and act in a way that feels in accordance with the greatest good.
Our schedule is now updated for June but please be sure to watch the schedule carefully as we will need to all be prepared for last minute adaptations as we move through this precarious time in our lives.
May we hold soul space for each other whether we are near or far. May we stay open to life with compassion, care, and courage. May we each be a light in a world that can turn towards darkness so easily.
Thank you for your continued care and support. You mean the world to us here at Shine. Thank you, Kate & The Shine Collective
If you don't see your regular teacher on here, please don't worry. We are opening the studio back to a new normal in phases and these are the teachers who stepped up to be on the front line and work out the kinks in our new systems. Stay tuned! There will be lots of updates to come so we can all.... you know it.... shine on!
