For those new to online conferencing and live streamed Yoga, movement and other online classes such as this I wish to reassure you the technology is very straight forward, you are in control of how you set things up for yourself–whether to be seen or not, etc.
You do not need to have a Zoom account to attend a class. Although it is video capable you can choose to do the class without video of you enabled. The links that accompany each class listed on the schedule will lead you through the process.
You join by simply clicking on the link given on the schedule underneath the class and follow the prompts. For that reason we suggest those new to the these classes arrive to 10-15 minutes before classes are scheduled to begin so we can help you get comfortable with the process and handle any concerns that arise before class begins.
To setup your physical space make sure the area is safely clear of objects that get in the way of safe movement in an out of poses, etc.
Basic props are optional and can include a Yoga mat, 1(or 2)Yoga blocks or pillows, a belt or strap, and a blanket or cushion for seated meditation. Modifications in poses can be substituted for props in most cases.
We are here to help you through the challenges that come with trying new things. For a general understanding of how to use Zoom Meeting a tutorial is available here. We are here to answer specific questions and guide you if challenges arise. For that reason we suggest you arrive to 10-15 minutes before classes are scheduled to begin so we can help you get comfortable with the process and handle any concerns that arise before class begins.
