"Hybrid" yoga classes are here to stay. With students in your physical presence and online at the same time, live streaming classes – now with students in the room with you at the same time –  creates both new challenges and opportunities in teaching yoga. This workshop focuses on how we can best provide clear guidance with our voice, visual demonstration, and hands-on adjustments in hybrid classes. We will explore how to use the latest digital technology in ways that make it feel invisible while creating ways to humanize the experience through various means of interaction and active engagement. We will do this while highlighting how the most current insights from functional anatomy and kinesiology inform postural alignment, energetic actions, and effective hands-on cues in postures drawn from each of the seven families of asanas.
