My teacher is about a half hour away and sometimes my schedule is so jammed I really need a practice and can’t make it there. On average the hour long commute there and back, the 75 minute class and a bit of time before and after turns out to be a three hour chunk of my day.
I was really excited about this new online service called Yogaglo that streams yoga classes to your computer from a studio in California. The way the video is shot, it looks like you are at the back of an actual class. As soon as it launched I signed up, and started watching classes. I was able to do a few classes but found it hard to hear many of the videos. With my speakers cranked to full volume, I could barely hear the instructor. I still gave it a good try and did a few more. The level of information was great and I learned a lot. Eventually I found that I was not using it, so I cancelled after six months. If I can route the video to my TV I will consider rejoining. I’ll have to get that laptop sooner.
The fee is $18.00 per month, the cost of one drop in class at a local studio. I highly recommend that everyone give their free two week trial a go around. You can’t tell if this is for you unless you do it. Make sure you cancel it before the two weeks are up if you decide to pitch it. They will charge you for a full month otherwise.
