How do I access Zoom online yoga classes?
I use Zoom, a free online platform to stream my classes.
It's easy to set up - please follow these simple instructions:
Download and create your free Zoom account. I suggest you set up Zoom well in advance to make sure audio and video are working.
Please log in 10 - 15 minutes before the start of class so we can begin on time.
How to join Zoom online yoga class Cloud Meetings:
∗ If you’ve never used Zoom before, please take the time to download the free Zoom app on whichever device you use for joining live classes (on iPads and smart phones it is 'Zoom Cloud Meetings' from the App store). On computers and laptops it is: zoom.us. Follow Zoom's simple instructions to set up your account.
How to register for your chosen Zoom online yoga class
∗ Please send your payment as soon as possible and at least one hour before the class starts. Payments can be made by clicking here. We'll send you an email with a unique link to your chosen class at least one hour before the class begins.
∗ To join the class, please click on the link in the email we sent you. This will take you directly into Zoom where you will be asked to fill in your details before clicking 'Register'. You will be taken to a new screen. Please click on the link provided where you will be taken into a waiting area until the class begins.
∗ We will open the class 15 mins before the class starts to give you time to familiarise yourself with the process. Once the class begins I won't be able to help with any technical issues so be sure to familiarise yourself by checking in early.
∗ Please email me with any injuries or medical conditions which may affect your ability to practice.
Once I've Joined a Class
∗ It would be helpful for me to be able to see you during class and it helps us to connect as a group.
If you'd like me to see you, please switch your video on when you get settled. There is an option to test the video before we start so you can see what it looks like. If you prefer to join the class without a video connection, it’s also fine to leave video off.
∗ Please arrange yourself so that I can see in both standing and lying positions. Please also have any cushions, blankets or other props you need close at hand.
∗ When you join the class, please could you ensure that you mute your microphone through the Zoom microphone icon. .
∗ If you’d like to ask about anything as we go through class, please wave and I’ll unmute you so we can hear your question.
∗ After the class ends you have the option to unmute yourself and chat with the teacher and other students should you wish.
∗ If you are unable to get into the class for technical reasons any payments already made can be used towards a future class.
What props do I need?
∗ If you don't have your own yoga mat, then a carpet or rug is fine.
∗ A yoga block / large hardback book or a cushion for sitting. Blankets and cushions as necessary for padding the knees and for comfort during meditation / Savasana.
∗ Wear leggings or loose comfortable clothes suitable for movement.
