Dear friends,

In this time of COVID-19, my classes have moved to Zoom for the time being. Join me! It's easy, fun, no commute. If you are new to taking class on Zoom, please scroll to the bottom of this page to learn more. These are donation based classes. Pay what you can or not at all. Open to all. Payment options are Venmo, Cash App, Paypal and personal check. All the info is at the bottom of this page. 

Here are all the links you need to attend class each week. Each day has its own set Meeting ID (doesn't change from week to week),

Here’s some guidelines. 

You’ll need:

A computer with internet access with a camera and microphone (you don’t have to have a camera, we just won’t be able to see you on the screen. Most laptops have a camera built in and a microphone.) 

From what I can tell, using Google Chrome as your Web Browser might work best.  You can download Zoom at www.zoom.us ahead of time or when you click on the meeting link when I send the invitation to join the meeting, Zoom will automatically download.

You can also do this on an iPad or smart phone. You’ll need the Zoom Cloud app on your tablet or phone.       

Set up a space to move in and have your computer, tablet or phone set up where you can see it.

Move furniture and test out when you kick or raise your arms that have room around you.

Create a space that feels welcoming to you, remove distractions if you can

Comfortable clothes to move in

Water

A yoga mat or blanket if you want for the end of class

Click on the link for the day of the week of the class. You can enter the “class” 15 minutes before the class start. If you enter late, no worries, please mute yourself.  We will do introductions before the class start time and I'll do my best to start and end class on time. Everyone is welcome to hang out in the room at the end of class to talk and connect.

We’ll see each other in little video boxes on the screen. If you don’t want to be seen on the screen you can “stop” your video, and still see me and others and hear us. 

When class starts I’ll mute everyone but me. The music and my voice coming through your computer may be not perfect at times, please be patient with it. Get into your body and sensations and let the outside world fade into the background as much as you can. This will be a regular 55 minute class. If people want to stay at the end and talk, I’d feel very happy to do that.  We have unlimited time in the meeting room.

Donations are welcome

I’m offering these classes to replace my classes at Center for Performing Arts in Minneapolis during this time of social distancing.  I gratefully welcome donations, $5-$10 per class per person would be a suggestion.

Some online (app based) ways to pay:

 Venmo: @Elizabeth-Giles-6

 paypal.me/NiawithBethGilesMN

Cash App: $bgilesnia

 Mail a check to Beth Giles, 3235 48th Av. S. Minneapolis, MN 55406

I’m hopeful that we’ll emerge from this time so much more connected, loving, and compassionate and that our culture and world will have shifted into a new age.  Let’s keep choosing joy both as a sensation of life force and as positive outlook. Everything is going to be alright….
