Live Stream Classes Continue
The live stream schedule is available here and also viewable on the Mindbody app. You need to preregister for all classes. There are Zoom “meeting” links associated with each live stream class and limited numbers of spots for in studio classes.
FYI: If you use the Mindbody app to book Sellwood Yoga classes, please note that there are intermittent problems with the app. Some people do not see any classes listed while others see only a partial list of classes. The fix that works for most (but not all) is to completely exit out of the app and then back in again. Also make sure you have the latest version of the app. You might also have to delete the app entirely and reinstall it. This is a Mindbody problem that is impacting Sellwood Yoga and some other studios.
We also have a collection of recorded live stream classes. You need to have a membership (monthly or weekly) and password (changes each Monday) to access those classes. Fill out this form if you would like access to the the recorded classes.
Please also check out our “FAQ’s about Live Stream Classes” as well as our “Guide to Using Zoom for Sellwood Yoga Live Stream Classes”.
In Studio Classes on Hold
On Friday, November 13, 2020, Gov. Kate Brown announced a partial lockdown today to address Oregon’s increase in daily coronavirus numbers.
All gyms are part of the mandated shut down. Yoga studios fall into the gym category.
While the lockdown does not start until Wednesday 11/18, we have decided to cancel our in studio classes effective immediately out of concern for our students and the community as a whole.
We know some of you may have had technical challenges with Zoom when we first started live streaming. If this is preventing you from attending live stream classes, please contact email@example.com. We are happy to spend 5-10 minutes with you one on one to do a “tech check.”
Be safe. Be well. We will get through this together.

Winter Solstice Yoga Celebration
The Winter Solstice marks the turn from the shortest day of the year towards the return of light. In many cultures, this return of illumination is celebrated, welcomed, and revered.
It has been a long standing solstice tradition, with Savonn at Sellwood Yoga, to gather by candlelight and move through a slow, mindful vinyasa flow sequence before moving into a deeply nourishing yin and restorative practice.
This year the gathering will be a live stream 1.5 hour class.
Savonn will lead you through the practice. She will send an email ahead of time with some ideas to consider to make your practice time feel more special and aligned with the solstice.
She will also provide some seasonal readings/poems along with a Spotify playlist. It will be your choice whether or not you use the playlist to accompany your time on the mat.
Don’t miss out on Sellwood Yoga’s tradition of practicing together to mark the seasons and solstices through celebratory yoga practices.
