This stuff is pretty new to me too. So if you have any more questions feel free to contact me and we will figure it out together!
A few common questions about live virtual yoga classes
Do I need to buy another app for this?
Not at all! Once you register for a class an email will be sent to you with a link to download the Zoom app which is totally free to use. You can use Zoom on any of your devices though I recommend a computer/laptop or a tablet instead of a phone. The bigger screen is nice for this.
How EXACTLY does this work?
First you register for a Live Virtual Class through my website. Make sure you register at least an hour before the class starts! After you register you will receive an email with a link to the class. Click the link about fifteen minutes before the class starts and it will bring you into the class through the Zoom app. There you have the choice to have your audio and video on or off. I teach the class which runs just like an in person class minus the studio. At the end we all say goodbye and leave the meeting. Or just leave without saying bye. That’s okay too.
Okay, what else do I need?
A room/place to practice big enough to lay down on the ground and reach your arms out. A mat or at least a carpet is recommended. You may also want a blanket or two, and a chair/books/yoga blocks available. Other than that you need the device you are using to access Zoom set up somewhere you can see it while you practice.
I really like my old lounge clothes when I’m at home, are other people going to see me?
Not if you don’t want them to see you! Zoom gives the option to turn your camera and audio off if you want don’t feel like sharing yourself with the world while you practice. (Especially great for those introvert days!)
Where’s the music??
Playing music on my end while teaching messes with the sound quality and your ability to hear me. But if you want to play music you can play it on your end through a different device than the one streaming the class. I have several playlists on Spotify that I will make available during classes. But if you choose to play music you will have to turn your audio off in Zoom so everyone doesn’t have to listen to everyone else’s music. That would be chaos!
