YogaHub Virtual Conference.1

Can you do yoga over the internet? Can you take yoga classes, attend lectures, even, perhaps, learn meditation practices? From behind the keyboard, one might be able to tell what side of the aisle I sit on.

Yoga conferences in the style of the ultra chic Yoga Journal soirees might be wonderful, but I have never been able to afford then. If you have, let me know how they are. Internet conferences seem inherently more "for the people," if only because more people can afford then. That's why I am excited about YogaHub's upcoming Virtual Conference.

The faculty roster is impressive. The topics are timely. And, frankly, I am interested to see what comes of this experiment. This is the first large-scale event of its kind, that I know of, and there aren't many folks out there attempting this in the future. In this way, YogaHub is blazing a new trail. It will be interesting to see how it works out.

I'll be following up with a couple more posts on the subject, but, for now, I just wanted to get the event on people's radar. What do you think about internet-based yoga conferences? What can we get out of them? And, finally, anyone else planning on attending the Virtual Conference?


YogaHub Virtual Conference

One of the more challenging parts of writing sequences is trying to describe a part of a sequence that has no Sanskrit or English name and has multiple movements involved. Not actually being saavy enough to even have a regular picture-posting practice, video is not really an option. The conference, of course, will be using video, but, for today, in honor of actually transmitting learning over the internet, this sequence will be utterly straight-forward. Sanksrit, English, it's there. No awkward descriptions needed. Now, if it could always be that way...
