You will be able to see the teacher and interact with them. And if you choose, the teacher can see you too! Our teachers are all committed to supporting your practice during these challenging times.

WHAT ARE LIVE ONLINE CLASSES?

These classes are offered in real time with a live teacher and other students connecting virtually through video conferencing software. We are using zoom.us which is free to download and can be accessed through a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. A laptop works best for both you and the teacher to view each other.

HOW DO I REGISTER AND JOIN CLASSES?

WHAT WILL I NEED FOR THE CLASS?

1. Props – These props will be used in most classes:

  • Sticky mat
  • 1-2 blocks
  • 1 bolster (or something that you could use as a bolster)
  • 3 blankets, or enough for Shoulder Stand
  • 1 belt

2. Device and physical set-up information

  • Download zoom to your device (phone, tablet or laptop)
  • Set your device up horizontal to your mat, about 2-3 feet from the floor, not at an angle.
  • If possible, set up your mat about 12 feet away from your screen.
  • Do not put yourself in front of a window or you will be backlit and difficult to see.

3. Joining the live online class

  • Please join the meeting 5-15 minutes before the start time to check in with the teacher, arrange your camera, and test your volume
  • Once you’ve checked in, please click on mute (lower left of your zoom screen).
  • In Zoom you can toggle between two modes – Gallery View and Speaker View. You may want to start in Gallery View to get a sense of class community and for the invocation. Afterward, switch to Speaker View to follow the class – this view makes the picture of the teacher larger.
  • If you prefer not to be seen you can turn off your video and only see the teacher.
  • At any time if you have a question please unmute and ask your question.
