Pandemic or no pandemic, Yoga Lounge Bournemouth wants to keep our minds clear and bodies moving. So founder Amber Fidler has moved classes online…
Rather than close due to the current coronavirus pandemic, Yoga Lounge Bournemouth has decided to hold its classes online. The popular and successful fitness studio in Boscombe now has a series of video sessions available on Zoom.
Owner and founder Amber Fidler put together 34 classes a week for her students – both new and pre-existing – to access from as little as £30. This fee covers 15 classes in any style, available for 30 days.
Yoga in Lockdown
Amber emphasised the importance of practices like yoga at this current time of quarantine:
“Yoga is so important for mental health as well as physical well-being. Right now, we need it more than ever – especially if people are restricted to spending a lot of time at home.”
She went on to elaborate on how successful the video link app Zoom has been as a substitute for in-person teaching:
“Zoom allows users to see the teacher and, if they are happy, offers a reciprocal video feed. Therefore, the teacher can correct posture and offer personal encouragement during an online class.
“We are really sorry that we cannot welcome students in person. However, we will be back and running normally as soon as government safety guidance allows us.”
The UK lockdown was enforced shortly after Yoga Lounge Bournemouth celebrated its eighth birthday. They marked the event with “Yogangster”, a yoga rave attended by 65 students. Michael Eley – a favourite guest teacher at the lounge – taught additional workshops, also as part of the birthday celebrations.
