With fitness studios and gyms closing their doors for the time being to aid social distancing efforts, many Bostonians have taken their workouts digital.

Local yoga instructor Jordan Hinahara is among them. She is teaching over Zoom and trying to catch class announcements posted across Instagram, Facebook, and other platforms.

“Trying to keep track of it just got difficult,” she told Boston.com. “Taking a page out of the book of some teachers in Minneapolis, I decided to put this website together and get all the teachers on the same calendar so that we could have a resource to be able to share with students, with each other, and know what our options were.”

That website is Boston Yoga Online, a compilation of virtual yoga classes by local instructors ranging from a 7 a.m. “rise & shine” offering to a core-focused session. A Google calendar on the site allows visitors to pick out what appeals to them and find details about how to access the workout, such as a Zoom meeting link or social media handle to tune in for an Instagram Live.

The schedule is continually updated with new options, many of which are free or donation-based.

Hinahara and six other instructors have currently posted classes on the calendar. Interested yoga instructors are welcome to add their own sessions by filling out a contact form on the website.
