Please log-on 5 minutes early. Online group classes may be recorded. SET UP your mat someplace with minimal distractions. Using as large a screen as possible so you can see me easily, prop up your fully-charged device in such a way so you can see me and I can see your mat, your full body (ideally), but at least your legs, feet and torso so I can make alignment suggestions. You can “pin” my video window when we begin.
