"While I used to think of my yoga practice as separate from my academic work, the two have become increasingly connected. My yoga practice supports my well-being and productivity and in turn supports the environment I create for students at GT. Yoga practices cultivate awareness and encourage individuals and communities to thrive."  -Narin Hassan

What is it like to take your online livestream yoga class?

Narin Hassan: I’m currently teaching classes on Zoom. All of the classes are open to beginners. My training is in therapeutic, alignment-based yoga and we use props to support and deepen poses. For most classes, you will need a strap/yoga belt (you can use a dog leash, scarf, long belt, or anything like that) and a block and blanket or cushion. Hardcover books can function like blocks.

I usually have a demo so you can see the demo in the poses while I speak and observe students. You can choose to have video on or off. I mute everyone when class begins (but you can always unmute to ask a question if needed). All classes are recorded and you receive the recording for 72 hours once you register, so you can take it live and then retake or go back and view.
 
Wednesday night (6:30pm) is a gentle/restorative class (perfect for beginners), Monday night (6:30pm) is Level 1 and Sunday morning is Level 1 and 2 (10am). All classes are complimentary for the LMC community and you can take multiple classes.

Economic Health and Wellbeing

Sustainable development is about more than just making individual decisions that benefit the Earth. A sustainable economy also prioritizes dignified work and social services for everyone. And a viable community is built with the mental and physical health of its members in mind.
