How to
prepare

Follow these simple guidelines to prepare for your upcoming online lesson or class.

find the right space

Find a space where you won’t be disturbed that is:

  • quiet
  • warm
  • well lit
  • obstacle-free

Keep in mind that you may be in one of 3 places during the lesson: 

  • sitting at the screen so we can chat at the beginning and end of lesson
  • a metre or 2 away from the screen, lying down on the floor or yoga mat
  • standing a few metres away from the screen

It’s impossible to have one setup that will cover each of the above senarios, and you will most likely need to move your device/screen around to accommodate.

lighting

Good lighting is important. Make sure that:

  • the main light source is in front of you, not behind you
  • please don’t wear clothing that is the same colour as your background

clothing

Non-restrictive clothing is best: 

  • comfortable
  • allow free movement of arms above head and when getting up from and down to the floor
  • light-coloured (black or dark colours make it hard for me to see you)

screen view

Remember, I can only see EXACTLY what you see on your screen. Make sure that in all 3 cases above (ie. up close, lying down, and standing): 

  • do a test run – log into Zoom and click “New Meeting” to check your onscreen visibility
  • make sure you can see ALL of you in the screen when lying down and standing up, from the top of your head to the tip of your toes
  • check your lighting
  • adjust the screen as needed

sound

Please test your sound quality:

  • can you hear from 2-3 metres away from the screen
  • earbuds are good
  • make sure they’re fully charged
  • don’t use headphones
  • check your device’s sound system is on, and the volume is turned up

what you'll need

Prepare the following:

  • a yoga mat, if you have one
  • a chair with as firm a seat as possible
  • some paperbacks to place under your head

zoom

All online lessons will be conducted on the Zoom platform.

 You may receive 3 emails after you’ve booked an online lesson or group class:

  • a confirmation email will be sent immediately that will contain the link and login details for your lesson or class
  • you’ll receive a reminder email 24 hours prior
  • about an hour before the start time of your lesson, you’ll receive another email with the login info so you have it close at hand 

that's it!

Well done! If you have any questions, please get in touch.

See you on Zoom!
