Should I use my laptop, phone or tablet?
Online yoga works best when you’re using a laptop with a camera at the top. This allows the
camera to be adjusted so your teacher can see everything you’re doing. The teacher needs to see
your shoulder blades, nag you about your hip flexors, and encourage you to relax your big toe! 🙂
How do I set up my laptop and mat?
Set up your laptop far enough away so your teacher can see you and the side view of your full mat.
The whole horizontal mat should be in the camera frame. Do your best and don’t worry.
Try to put yourself in a quiet place and ensure you have a strong and stable internet connection. If a family member is watching Netflix, make them stop 🙂
Is using Zoom complicated?
Not at all. Give yourself a couple of minutes before the start of the class to get comfortable with the Zoom environment. You will get the hang of it quickly.
