Covid-19 has proven that yogis really are flexible: They’ll do what they need to do to serve their students. With New York State relaxing its guidelines for reopening yoga studios, teachers and studio owners like Christine Dodge, of Putnam Yoga, are putting plans in place to move to a new system.
“We remain completely committed to our Putnam Yoga community, and we have instituted online classes via Zoom during the pandemic,” Dodge says. “Teaching yoga online has been challenging, because we are all missing the in-person experience, but we’re all finding a way to make it work. I’ve already prepared my studio to reopen safety and in accordance with state and health department official guidelines.”
Putnam Yoga currently offers a wide variety of Zoomclasses, including Level ½, Yin, Gentle Hatha and Restorative Yoga, as well as a weekly Barre class. Once the studio is allowed to reopen, it will offer more in-person classes while still maintaining the safety protocols.
“So many people have been supportive of me and the studio, and we all look forward to coming back together again soon,” Dodge says. “I feel both anxious and excited about what yoga studios will look like in the future.”
A certified YogaFit instructor and personal trainer, Dodge designed Putnam Yoga to provide a unique experience that combines innovative and traditional yoga styles targeting specific muscle groups to increase agility and quiet the mind.
