Step 4: Please play the music playlist on a separate device from the one you are accessing Zoom on – so you can hear the class instruction from Zoom clearly.
HOW TO prepare for a live, online yoga class:
• Please wear comfortable, stretchy clothing
• Bring a yoga mat, two blocks and 1 or 2 pillows. Optional: a blanket and socks for warmth, an eye pillow
• If you are practicing on hard wood floors, please bring a blanket, for padding your knees.
• You may use a strap or other props as well, props are encouraged, but may not be taught by instructor or required
• Please clear enough safe space for you and your yoga mat so that you are protected, away from bookcases or objects that might fall or impede your practice. Be safe.
• Please use a sticky mat that does not slide on flooring and test it out before practice.
• You can have your video ON or OFF for class. This is a personal preference for each attendee. Some students feel like having the video on makes them feel part of a larger group and some feel more at ease with the camera off. It is up to you and your comfort level. It is NOT required.
