Frequently asked questions

Zoom

What is Zoom?


Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others - either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats. You may need to quickly download the Zoom software on your device. If possible, please have your video and microphone available to use so that the teacher can see you and offer live feedback on your practice.




Is Zoom free?


The basic Zoom plan is free. You can hold an unlimited number of meetings. Group meetings with multiple participants are capped at 40 minutes in length, and meetings can't be recorded. Any eventual upgrades and costs apply only to the host of the Zoom meeting and not to the invited participants.




How do I join a Zoom meeting?


After booking a livestream class, you will receive an email with a link to the upcoming Zoom meeting or a Zoom ID. It is not neccessary to have a Zoom account in order to join a Zoom meeting as an invited participant. You will only need to download the Zoom softward on your device. With Zoom Redirector (Google Chrome and/or Firefox) any meeting links are automatically redirected to use Zoom's browser based web client. Instead of having to search for the hidden "join from your browser" link, this addon will take you there automatically.




Can I use Zoom on my smartphone?


Yes! You can download the Zoom App on your smartphone. For your yoga practice however, I would recommend using a device with a larger screen (laptop/tablet) in order to better see the instructor and your fellow students.

What is the best set up for a home practice?


Here are a few tips on how to optimally set up your space for your home practice: - Make sure your entire body is visible in your camera. I recommend logging into the Zoom meeting 5 minutes prior to the class starting so you can connect with the other students and also check your screen to see that your whole body is visible from where you are lying/standing on your mat. -Have a block/pillow/bolster handy in case you might want to use these for modifications. You are also welcome to have a water bottle close by to hydrate during moments of active recovery. - If possible, have some wall space cleared. Sometimes I like to use a wall for support in postures and for inversion practices. -I realize that everyone's household situation is different and that it is not always possible to have a quiet space for our home practice. If possible, try to get the other members of your household to agree to give you this time and space so you can get the most out of your yoga class. Or, better yet, encourage them to join you for your yoga class - the more the merrier! ( In cases like this I charge per household and not per person). That being said, if we have the odd dog or kid running in front of the camera that is no problem. I think it adds to the fun of practicing at home!
