Join me for online classes on Zoom

Hello yoga students and friends,

I hope that this email finds you well and settling into this strange new routine. I’m feeing very thankful for the sunshine these past few days and the support of my family. 

Thanks to everyone who has checked out my classes on the Ocean and Crow Facebook live site, and those who have been able to offer donations to myself and the studio. It’s been great to connect with you in some way, and keep teaching. I have to admit its strange to teach in a room alone, and I miss the interactive aspects of the work. On that note….

As of next Wednesday night, my online classes will be moving over to Zoom. I’m hoping it will help me connect with you even more, and I’ll be able to check in at the beginning, offer suggestions as we practice together, and personalize it more. I’m new to teaching on this platform, and I know some of you might be new to using it, so I’d like to offer the first class as a complimentary sample, so that we can both adjust to it together.

The link to sign up for the complimentary class on Wednesday April 15th is:    https://oceanandcrow.pike13.com/group_classes/236029

After that, my Saturday morning 10am class and Wednesday night 7:45pm class will be on Zoom regularly, and you can sign up on the Ocean and Crow website as you would normally. We ask that you sign in at least an hour before the class starts so that you can receive the link in time. I’ll be at the meeting about 15 minutes early to check in with you, and make sure we can all hear and see each other. 

There are a few options for how to pay for the classes:

1. Use your interrupted Ocean and Crow March-April pass
2. Purchase 4 weeks for $45+tax until April 30th ($75+tax after): https://oceanandcrow.pike13.com/pack_products/651408
3. Purchase 6 classes in 6 weeks: https://oceanandcrow.pike13.com/pack_products/652745
4. Drop in for $15 (option will come up when you enroll for the class you want to take).
5. Use ClassPass

Please note that we also have financial assistance options for pretty much everything we do, so if you are in financial need, email oceanandcrow@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can do for you.

You can also do the classes after the fact. Simply enroll for the class and email Julie at oceanandcrow@gmail.com  to request a recording. You’ll get it after the fact with about 24 hours to use it.

Simply enroll online for the class you want to take and the system will use your pass if you have one or give you options to purchase if you don’t: https://oceanandcrow.pike13.com/schedule#

Please let me know if you have any questions, or just want to say hi and check in.

Thank you so much for your ongoing commitment. I hope to “see” you sometime soon.

If you haven’t checked it out, my last Facebook live class will be this Saturday morning at 10am.
Follow the link for “Live” once you click on this link to access the classes. https://www.facebook.com/oceanandcrowyoga/

All the best,
Meghan

Before my second son was born, I taught a Tuesday evening class at Yoga on  7th, so I’m very happy to be have found a new and wonderful home for teaching on Tuesday evenings again. I hope you’ll be able to join me for some yoga this winter.

Join Iyengar Yoga teacher Meghan Goodman for a progressive series of classes on Sunday evenings. From the Ground Up is a weekly course designed to create a strong foundation for students new to yoga while offering opportunities for those with a regular practice to deepen their understanding of the poses and how they work best in our own bodies.

Week 1: Feet, Ankles, and Knees: Learn how correct actions and alignment in the lower part of the body can help improve balance, stability, and joint health.

Week 2: Legs and Hips: Discover how the standing poses can build energy, stamina, and confidence while better understanding how to open and strengthen the legs. Experience the differences between internal and external rotation of the hips. Learn conditioning exercises for stability, and safe stretches that open the hip without disrupting the knees.

Week 3: Abdomen and Lower Back: Focus on strengthening the abdomen to keep your lower back healthy in yoga practice and in life.

Week 4: Upper Back and Shoulders: Experience how the use of the arms and legs can support the opening of the chest. Find strength and space in the shoulders to prepare the body for inversions.

Week 5: Mobility through movement: This class will focus on slow-paced sun salutations and the linking of postures with the breath for a warming and playful practice.

Week 6: Reverse the flow: Learn safe inversion practices for your own level of experience. Through preparations and the use of props, students will learn how to build strong foundations and find optimal alignment in order to receive the many benefits of turning upside down.

Week 7: Restoration and breathing: The final week of this session will offer a chance to work with the subtle body through gentle postures and exploration of pranayama, the art and science of the breath.

Fall into Winter

IMG_1326

It seems like yesterday (literally) when I was walking through trout lake park enjoying the beautiful fall colours. Over night, in the blink of an eye, it feels like winter is here. As someone who pretty much feels cold from now until July, I appreciate the warm and cozy studios I get to practice and teach in. I feel very grateful to be able to participate and collaborate with a community of people who join together to maintain their health and well being through yoga.

If you’d like to join me, I’ve got some new classes starting up soon. Send me a note if you have any questions: meghangoodman@hotmail.com

For the dance fans out there, I’ll be performing in Dance in Vancouver, a double bill featuring Aeriosa Second Nature (excerpt) and Co.ERASGA Tracing Malong.
