FAQ

What is Zoom & why are we using it for yoga classes?

Zoom is a powerful, easy-to-use tool for us to connect while we cannot physically share the same space. Think of it like FaceTime or Hangout with a group. It allows you to share your audio and/or video, so we can talk & practice together.

What do I need to do?​

Download Zoom (for free) to your laptop or mobile device before the class starts. In your device's Settings, make sure Zoom has access to your camera & microphone. 

 

Find a place to put your device where you'll be able to see the screen & Emily will be able to see most of your body as you move. You can test this by turning on your device's video recording.

 

Come to class early & Emily can (try to) help you with any tech questions. Or connect with her before class!

Do I have to share my video?​

Video is optional! But it's a great way for us to connect. Eye contact is truly powerful, even when virtual. If you share your video, Emily will teach to your practice & can provide individual support.

Student video is not available for Zoom Webinars (only for Meetings).

How do I change who I see on Zoom?

You can either view the Active Speaker (mostly Emily) or see a Gallery (tiled) view of everybody's video feeds. In your zoom settings, you can hide your own video if it is distracting. You can also hide the blank tiles for non-video participants.

Do I need props?

Emily always suggests having a blanket, 1-2 blocks, and a bolster. Additional guidance will be given at the beginning of each class.

 

But I don't have yoga props.

No problem! Try these:

- Books or water bottle for yoga blocks.

- Pillows or couch cushions for a bolster.

- Beach towel or throw blanket for a yoga blanket.

- Scarf or belt for a yoga strap.

Will there be music?

You can play your own music or one of Emily's playlists. She will share a Spotify playlist link in each class' chat. You can find her on Spotify here

 

Start your music after we finish our opening meditation. You can play music on a separate device. Or the Spotify app has its own volume control separate from your device, so you can adjust the volume relative to class.
